Some Precautions:

The brand has mentioned that they make the bars on equipment that also processes peanuts. So if you have nut allergies then you should not use these bars. Diabetic folks should also be careful with these snacks and consult the table of contents on the packaging. Similarly, care is recommended for people with gluten and lactose intolerance. Keep in mind that Power Crunch Bar is not a meal replacement and does not provide all the nutrients that one needs on a daily basis. It is a dietary supplement and therefore you should avoid prolonged consumption. 

Side Effects: In rare cases, it might cause an upset stomach, bloating, nausea, thirst, cramps and headache.

A Few Complains: Some users think that these bars are too sweet for a protein bar. Others few think that there is an odd after taste, which might be due to the usage of natural sweetener stevia. However, you can easily wash it down with a drink. There is that irritating issue of it melting easily and creating a mess. These bars are quite crumbly. You have to buy the whole box of twelve bars and that is an inconvenience. What if you do not like that flavor after trying it out and now you are stuck with the remaining eleven bars. These should be available as single bars in order to try out different flavors.

So…, Conclusion!

It tastes amazing. Its texture is just right. It is, for lack of a better word, unique. Nevertheless, we cannot replace it with whole food. However, it does claim to increase the absorption of proteins and other nutrients. The wide array of flavors keep the taste buds satisfied. But all the good things aside, what really amazed us is the back story of how a father’s love and care for his child resulted in the creation of the Power Crunch Bars. Companies made with such pure intentions, seldom disappoint.
