    Great source of protein

    It was a nice tasting bar with good amount of protein and fibre. I found it to be a bit too sweet, but overall it was enjoyable. I would definitely consider purchasing it in the future!

    Not For Me

    I #gotitfree through the product review club.

    My partner and I were disappointed in these bars. We were looking forward to trying them as we both are quite active and eat both high protein granola bars and protein bars on a regular basis.

    This bar gave me a terrible stomach ache (not gas or digestive upset, sharp pain in my stomach) about 10-15 minutes after eating it. I think that it's from the inulin (a fibre extract). I eat a high fibre diet normally (vegetarian), so I don't know if it was just too much fibre or this particular ingredient that did it. It may have been something else entirely, but I wasn't going to eat another to find out! It lasted for a few hours and was painful enough to wake me up when I tried to sleep it off.

    We found the flavour to be okay, not great but not bad. It was a bit too sweet for our taste though.

    Looking at the nutritional information, 10g of protein is pretty good (until you see that a lot of it is from various concentrates). The sugar and sodium counts are fairly high, but to be expected in a commercial bar. It had a fair bit of fat, likely from the nuts (13g), but it's still a consideration.

    Overall, we won't be buying these. They don't agree with my stomach and my partner didn't like them enough to spend money on them. Usually, something like this would disappear quickly in our house, but one bar is still sitting on the table.

    10g of Protein!

    I really enjoyed the flavour and the texture of the cashew, salted caramel and dark chocolate Power Bar Plant Protein. This is prefect for all my vegan friends. I like that it is soy free because I can recommend and share with my soy-allergic friends. 10g of protein is also great especially after a workout. #gotitfree

    Delicious protein bar

    Love caramel, love cashews, love dark chocolate so I liked this protein bar. I love the amount of protein it has but it might be a little to sugary for some. #gotitfree #chickadvisor #powerbarplantproteincashewsaltedcaramelanddarkchocolate

    Very tasty bar!

    Out of the two flavours that i've tried, I believe this one is my favourite. Although it is a tad sweet for my liking, the description of how the bar tastes is spot on. The flavour of caramel hits your first and the dark chocolate helps balance out everything. The cashews aren't as evident as I thought they would be however. I do like that it doesn't have the weird whey protein after taste which is always welcome. Would buy these again but hopefully the make it a tad less sweet.

    so so bar

    I don't think this bar is for me. I don't like the taste but im just not into caramel overall. I think the fat in the calories chart is a bit too high for me for such a small bar. But it's a great bar to have in your gym bag or purse/backpack if you are in a rush or want something to munch on.

    I do like the crunchiness and the ingredients and the combination of salty and sweet taste but I think it is a bit too sweet to my own taste. Other than that I think it does the job in terms of protein intake..

    very tasty but not chewy

    I really liked the taste and that it is plant based .. the caramel cholate bar is DELISH.. my only issue is I find it a little hard.. I like bars that are more chewy. I did get the bar as a sample to try out and i would get myself.
    I snacked at work! #PowerBarPlantProtein#gotitfree

    Solid vegan protein bar

    Great protein bar for people looking for vegan options. I have to say this is a very good protein bar imo. The things I like about it are that it is gluten, and no soy! If it had soy I probably wouldn't buy them because of the estrogenic effect of soy. Another huge plus for me is that it contains no artificial sweeteners. There are two down sides for me are that there's too much sugar in it. For weight conscious people and just health in general sugar is the enemy. It would be fine for a pre-workout snack but the bar is pretty sweet and would probably still taste good with less sugar but still I'd rather sugar then artificial sweeteners. My final gripe is the palm kernel oil. I would prefer a different oil just because the fact that it's irresponsible since it threatens endangered species like the orangutan. Unless it is sourced responsibly then I wouldn't support this product. I also like that it is gmo free.

    Amazing taste, great ingredients, would eat all the time

    This bar is super tasty. Most protein bars that are plant based don't taste this good. I would definitely buy this bar again. While 10 g of sugar is considered low, I don't think it needs to be this sweet. It would be nice to have less sugar. Cane sugar shouldn't be #2 on the ingredients list. However, the other ingredients are great. Loving the 12 g of good fats! I am a big fan of plant proteins and for vegans and vegetarians, this is an EXCELLENT option.
