First off, let me just say that I think the original Power Crunch bars are great. They’re really more wafers than bars as they reminded me of those classic sugar wafers from back in the day. The macros aren’t the best considering the higher fat content, but the flavor is on point. With all of that in mind, I was pretty pumped to find that Power Crunch came out with a new line of more macro friendly protein bars. I couldn’t wait to try the Power Crunch Crisp Salted Caramel bar to see how it stacked up in comparison to their original line.
Power Crunch Crisp Salted Caramel Escape Review
The bar has an appealing appearance to it. The center of the bar looks nice and crispy, and it’s drizzled with a salted caramel coating on the outside. Definitely a radical departure from their original bars. The appearance wasn’t the only thing extremely different though, as the overall taste was as well… But not in a bad way. It’s almost like an oxymoron when describing the texture of this bar because while it does have an element of crisp to it, it’s a really soft and gentle crisp, if that makes any sense at all. I don’t think it does, but just know that it’s a very enjoyable texture. The salted caramel flavor of the bar itself was accurate and on point as well, but I still think the real highlight of the bar is its texture.
The Power Crunch Crisp Salted Caramel bar totals out to 165 calories consisting of the macros 14p/16c/5f in addition to 3g fiber. Comparing to the original Power Crunch bar of the same flavor, this one is better in every way. Less fat, more protein/fiber and lower calories. A win win all around.
My experience with the Power Crunch Crisp Salted Caramel bar was positive on all accounts. With the macros as good as they are, I was slightly worried that the flavor would be sacrificed in result. Fortunately, this was every bit as tasty if not even better than their original Power Crunch salted caramel flavor… And with better macros. If you’re a fan of their other protein bars, do yourself a favor and try these pups out ASAP.
