Review: PowerBar Energize Wafer

An innovative option for sweet tooths bored of energy bars, but taste may be a bit sickly for some

Key information

Our score





Each 40g PowerBar Energize Wafer bar provides 27g of carbohydrate from a 2:1 glucose/fructose blend in a wafer-textured bar. Designed to be easy to use and chew in both warm or cold conditions, the Energize Wafer bar is also pre-scored so it can be easily split into two halves if needed.

PowerBar recommends eating one bar 30-60 minutes before exercise and 1-2 bars per hour thereafter (you’ll need to drink water too). Testing of the chocolate peanut flavour (berry yoghurt is the other flavour on offer) revealed a nice chocolatey taste, but one that’s possibly a touch sweet and sickly for some.

And while the wafer texture was light, it was a bit sticky on the teeth – perhaps a little disappointing considering each gram of carbohydrate costs nearly 6p.
