ProBar Whole Berry Blast Bar
Source: received it as a sample, freebie, or prize (received in Trailspace prize pack)
Somebody, somewhere landed this in my mailbox. Don't hesitate, for a moment, to buy any.
- Excellent taste
- Excellent texture
Found this in my mailbox, courtesy of somebody, somewhere. Do yourself a favor, and buy a case, they are great. These are kinda along the lines of a Clif Bar, but tastier.
Price Paid: $3
I went to an ultralight backpacking seminar (sponsored by GoLite, and given by Andrew Skurka) and this was one of the products (ProBar) that he mentioned. I found them at my local REI for $3 a bar. I bought this Berry Blast Bar and Art's Original flavor. I decided to share and had a taste test with my wife and son.
Verdict: Not bad.
There are 340 calories in one of these bars. It's "seedy" and chewy. The Berry Blast did have a berry-fruity flavor that helped mask the grains. The texture is like a granola bar/rice crispie treat mix. Not bad.
I know taste is a subjective thing, but in my opinion I'd give the Berrry Blast a 3.5 out of 5. (Art's Original would get a 2.5 out of 5. A Snicker's bar is a 5 out of 5!)
I couldn't tell if it would fill me up because I didn't eat the whole thing. Chances are I would want something to go along with it to "top off my tank." I definitely would consider this as an option for an energy bar.
