PB & Whey Review
Even more embarrassingly, this review is long overdue. I promised a friend that I would taste this (free, thanks!) protein bar and give it a review on my blog. Well, here it is . . . a few months later.
PB & Whey bars are new, targeting college students across the US; this is how they found me. A fellow first year at UVa works as one of their marketing interns and was excited to tell how great these bars are for workouts. Here’s your nutrition info & ingredients:
If you’re familiar with PowerBars, these are a slightly more nutritious, mini-version. The taste was faintly peanut buttery, creamy, kind of “protein-y” if that makes sense to you. I liked the texture a lot, very chewy, so each little bar takes a while to eat. The chewiness reminded me of a Tootsie Roll.
I cannot comment on the value of these bars since mine was *free,* but I would hope that were under $1.25 each. The product is organic, but the size of the bar isn’t much bigger than a matchbook.
PB & Whey bars would be useful to keep in my gym bag for those times that I’m hypoglycemic, cranky, and need instant food. Not that that ever happens to me . . .
Personally, I’d choose a less processed snack before these bars, but I’m not telling you to avoid them. For a small snack to hold you over until dinner, these are great. If you see PB & Whey on your grocery’s shelves, buy one and try it for yourself.
If you’re interested in me at all, I loved my first year of college. I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else right now. This summer I’m interning at Virginia National Bank, and I’ll be traveling back to London for the Olympics. Now that I have my own kitchen, you can except to see more recipes and reviews soon!
