Powerbar Energize Energy Bar

Powerbar Energize energy bars are available in both fruit and regular flavours.

Based on Powerbar's C2 MAX formula, a dual source carbohydrate blend with 2:1 mixture of glucose and fructose. By combing carbohydrate sources, rather than relying on glucose only, the rate of carbohydrate absorption by working muscles can be increased by over 50%. More energy to the muscles means improved endurance performance, with research studies showing on average improvement of 8%. 

Flavours

Available in Banana Punch, Berry Blast, Cherry Cranberry Twister, Chocolate, Coconut, Cookies & Cream, Mango Passion Fruit or Vanilla flavours.

Alternative Pack Sizes

Also available in multi bar packs -

Press Reviews

TriRadar

Powerbar have massively expanded their energy bar range to include more palatable options, but the Energize bars will appeal to lantern-jawed hardcore fans of the original bars. It’s definitely not convenience food as the wrapper is a sod to open on the move and even at room temperature there’s a lot of chomping to do to put it in the past tense. The powerful flavours need a tolerant palette – or a rapid rinse with water – too. The C2Max dual source (fructose/glucose) mix does seem to perform well particularly over longer, lower intensity sessions though – where the opening and chewing issues are less of an issue too. There’s enough protein in there to make it worth finishing after training if you didn’t manage during.

Verdict - Awkward opening, dubious texture and arduous chewing but good performance. Performance 3/5, Value 3/5, Overall 3/5.

Very different to the other bars, this is almost a thick gel rather than a food . The C2Max formula is a glucose/fructose mix that has been shown to be more digestible and readily available to the muscles – net effect, you can eat more of them during a race. It sticks to the wrapper a bit but can stand being in a hot pocket. We liked the tangy fruit taste. It’s quite chewy so you’ll need water, but easily palatable and quite refreshing, and it didn’t mess with our stomach at all. A good price for such a useful bar too.

Cycling Plus

Energize Bar Berry Blast - A strong berry smell but not much berry flavour. It took quite a bit of chewing and was quite gritty. The carbs were fast actiong.

Runner's World

Only 3g of fat with extra sodium: ideal for hot days. The variety of flavours allows you to find one that you can manage on the run.
