This is my second experience with these Power Crunch Crisp bars and I gotta say, I’m looking forward to it. The salted caramel flavor I tried was pretty excellent, and I really enjoyed all of the original Power Crunch bars even though they were more wafer-like. Vanilla isn’t my go-to flavor when it comes to protein bars, but based on their other products I’m still expecting to like the Power Crunch Crisp Sweet Vanilla Dream to a good degree.
Power Crunch Crisp Sweet Vanilla Dream Review
I was right. The texture was spot on as was the other Crisp flavor that I tried. It’s got a great combination of being crispy on the outside when you first bite into it, but it becomes very soft and chewy after that initial bite. The flavor tasted somewhat similar to the salted caramel flavor if I’m being honest, as it kind of tasted like a mixture of vanilla/caramel flavors but leaning more towards the vanilla side. Whatever it was, I liked it.
The Power Crunch Crisp Sweet Vanilla Dream bar totals out to 185 calories consisting of the macros 14p/14c/9f in addition to 3g fiber. Eh, unfortunately these macros are a bit worse than the salted caramel flavor, and not to mention the calories are higher as well. If this tasted much better it would be justified, but I thought they were fairly equal so I don’t really see where the extra fat is coming from here.
Another good experience with these bars, as the Power Crunch Crisp Sweet Vanilla Dream was indeed a delicious treat. The crisp is definitely there, but it does become nice and soft when you chew it. The texture is the real highlight here. The calories are a bit higher than the salted caramel flavor though and considering I found them to taste fairly similar overall, it’s hard to recommend this one over that one.
