Multipower Nature’s Power Bar review

Product review: Run247 columnist Kirsty Reade tests Multipower Nature’s Power Bars, designed to be used before and during exercise

Multipower Nature’s Power Bar designed to be used before and during exercise

Multipower has just launched a new energy bar aimed at those who want a healthier bar, made with natural ingredients. Nature’s Power Bar comes in 3 flavours: honey and seeds, cranberry and strawberry and salty cocoa. They’re designed to be used before and during exercise, delivering optimum fuel from cereals.

The natural ingredients are of premium quality and it’s nice to know that what you’re eating is healthy, unlike some of the other bars out there. They deliver a high amount of carbohydrates (25.2g) and protein (5.2g) in a 40g bar, but with only 2 – 4g of fat. It’s definitely a better option than reaching for that chocolate bar, and, unlike many other energy bars, they’re actually really tasty.

I’m a big fan of Multipower’s Power Layer bar, which tastes like the offspring of a Milky Way and a Snickers but delivers a large amount of protein and carbohydrate, perfect for recovery after a long run. Multipower continue their theme of ‘tastes as good as something that’s bad for you, but it’s actually doing you good’ with Nature’s Power bars.

I tested them during the South Downs Way 50 and found them first and foremost really easy to eat. A lot of energy bars are quite dense and chewy and therefore difficult to eat on the run, but Nature’s Power bars are cereal based and melt in the mouth easily. They also taste really good so they’re easy to stomach. They deliberately haven’t included nuts in any of the bars, in order to make them easier to digest, and only natural sugars are used.

The salty cocoa was definitely my favourite – a great mix of chocolatey taste and saltiness, followed by the honey and seeds bar (which tastes a bit like a sesame snap bar), and the cranberry and strawberry is nice too, if you prefer sweeter bars.  I definitely recommend these bars if you’re looking for a healthier alternative to your current energy bar. And if you’re a fan of eating solid food, rather than gels, I’d say that these are a great option for runners.

About The Author

Kirsty Reade

I’d describe myself as borderline obsessed with running, racing, reading about running, and watching others run so hopefully I’m fairly typical of Run247’s visitors. I tend to do longer races, particularly off-road marathons and ultras, but am pretty much a fan of any distance. I'm passionate about helping runners of all levels to improve through running communities I'm involved in, such as Underground Ultra and Free Range Runners.
