100 marathons & 50 states by PowerBar

5

I eat an oatmeal raisin PowerBar for lunch every day at school. I eat one before every marathon, and I've run 86. I've been eating the oatmeal raisin flavor since 1998 and never get tired of the flavor. I just love it and it gives me the nutrition and energy to teach kids all afternoon and to run marathons. The oatmeal raisin flavor is hard to find in St. Louis, Mo., so I buy it in quantity on-line so I never run out.

Powerbar fuels races and trail runs

5

I use a Performance Powerbar before races and long runs. They help smooth out energy ups and downs during my runs. I ran a 16 mile trail run last week in blazing sun and 85 degree heat. The energy from the Powerbar kept me juiced for about half the run. I try to eat one Powerbar about 1 hour before a run with a large glass of water. If you have a sensitive digestion this combination should make it easier to tolerate while running.

Just-in-time and easy-to-digest

5

Taking one 30 minutes before half and full marathons have made a world of a difference. I also use them on long rides as they're compact and nutrient rich. Amazed they haven't upset my sensitive stomach yet. Tried them all but favourites are chocolate and cookies & cream b/c the flavours are most congruent with the texture of a Powerbar.

Tasty Fuel

5

I have been eating Powerbars for years and have experienced nothing but satisfaction. Whether as a pre-run fuel or as a quick meal, Powerbars are easily and quickly digested and come in a variety of tasty flavors.

Easy and Tasty Energy for the Long Runs

5

I've been eating the vanilla crisp powerbars for the entirety of my adult life. Usually I would take them backpacking with me but when I started running seriously and training for a marathon in January I started using them as an easy source of carbs before my long runs. They're tasty, easy to consume, and provide me with the energy boost I need for those 10+ mile runs. One of the things I really like about them is that they don't upset my stomach during my runs like other products have. I fully believe that they way they dissolve when eaten has a big influence on this. Since incorporating the powerbar into my pre-workout routine I have found that I have to rely less on supplemental energy packs during long distances. Overall I would give these guys an A+.

Good option for a pre run snack

Good option to have for breakfast before a 15km plus run. Doesn't give you stomach issues. Helps you hang in the later stages of the run. Doesn't kick like a Gu bar though

The first 4 or 5 tasted great and gave great energy. After 5, I could no longer stomach biting into these and switched to CliffBars (which never seem to get old due to the different flavors and textures). These are good here and there, but get old quick if used on a daily basis.

I used to eat these 18 years ago. I stopped because so many different energy bars are now available. I just bought a box and was reminded that this is my favorite bar. It is soft, tastes great, easily digestible and gives me quick energy.

Nothing Better!

I eat a couple of bars most days for an early breakfast with coffee and then go for a run or bike. If I run at lunch, I will eat a bar about an hour before and then one after with lots of water for a great recovery.

I always eat one before a run. My favorite is the cookies and cream. I've noticed that if I eat one of these at stage 1 and a recovery bar for stage 3 I have much less muscle fatigue and very little (if any) muscle pain the following day.

great pre-run snack. i'd give it 5 stars, but the milk chocolate brownie is TERRIBLE. i am not looking forward to finishing that box. i have to agree with brian that cookies and cream is definitely my favorite as well.

Powerbar performance is the best energy bar available. In my opinion the best flavor is chocolate peanut Butter. This energy bar gives long lasting energy that can sustain you for well over an hour.

Pre run nutrition. Not a product I use daily but days I am dragging before going on my morning jog. Have been eating Power Bars for years and find very easy to digest with the right amount and mix of nutrients.
