Take 2 – Possible Chocolate Bar Substitute – PowerBar 52% Protein Plus Cookies & Cream Flavour

Second Attempt to find a tasty low smartpoint alternative to regular chocolate bars.  As this one is only three smartpoints I was very hopeful!

PowerBar 52% Protein Plus Cookies & Cream Flavour
Bought from:  Holland & Barrett
Cost:  £2.40 (Bought as part of a ‘buy one get one half price’ deal)
WW Smartpoints: 3

Looks:  Like a normal chocolate bar, when cut open:  looks a lot like the image on the packet, pretty impressed!
Smells:  Synthetic, but also tasted of cookies!
Taste:  Plasticky synthetic flavour, but this did improve as I got used to it, no after taste
Texture:  Chewy, cakey consistency

Conclusion:  Bearable for a treat at such low points?  A bit better than the peanut bar yesterday, but still not as good as a regular chocolate bar.  Not the cheapest at £2.40, even as part of the deal is still quite pricey!
