Summary

A great bar and great taste. Maximum protein for minimum fat

Pros

  • Taste
  • Protein
  • Gives you a lot of kick for little bad side effects

Cons

  • Nada

I am constantly looking for a bar that 1) tastes good and 2) delivers the energy I need without loading up on bad fats/sodium etc. After going cross eyed reading labels, the PowerBar Oatmeal Raisin Cookie bar delivers on all the energy/nutrition fronts but ALSO tastes pretty good.

The oatmeal/raisin bar is pretty standard and has a white sugary component to it that is pretty tasty. I like the chocolate peanut butter one a bit better but this is a solid bar.

Powerbar is really one of my favorite bars. I have eaten the oatmeal and peanut butter/chocolate versions of the bar and the apple is just as good. High in protein low in sat fats and sugar, this is a good bar for ya!

Here's what other sites are saying:

The PowerBar Harvest Bars taste better than the dry, cardboard substance you've gagged yourself with the last three training rides. In fact, the Powerbar Harvest Bars are so good that you may become addicted to them. It's true, although you could feasibly survive off the Harvest Bars alone (and some water to wash them down), we don't recommend it. We do however recommend that you take along a bar on your next training ride. Because after all, just because you took the afternoon off to go ride, doesn't mean your taste buds didn't come along. So how do the Harvest Bars provide energy' Easy. The Harvest Bars use a balanced mix of whole grains, soy protein, and natural fiber to keep you fueled for your ride. PowerBar claims that between 70 and 75 percent of the bars' energy is derived from carbohydrates. And as you've probably heard, carbs act like the gasoline for your body's engine. Where the Harvest Bar differs from the competition is in its aforementioned formula. The whole oats, fiber, and protein take longer to digest than glucose based carbohydrates, and this means that you receive a long, steady supply of carbs released into your bloodstream. This equates to consumable energy that simply lasts longer. The PowerBar Harvest Bars couldn't be easier to use for fuel on your next ride. Simply eat a bar 30 to 60 minutes before your ride, and then eat one every hour of your activity afterwards. No powders and no lab experiment goo food; just good, wholesome food. The PowerBar Harvest Bars are offered in a container of 15 individual bars and in the flavors Double Chocolate Crisp, Oatmeal Raisin Cookie, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip, and Toffee Chocolate Chip.
