Odwalla Bar: Super Protein.

This food bar has 16 grams of protein and 8 essential amino acids. It is crisper and harder than most other odwalla bars, although it isn't cruchy. There is a touch of sweetness, but not much in the way of identifiable flavors. The primary source of protein is soy, there is soy protein, soy nuts, soy butter, soy oil, soy protein crisp rice, and soy lecithin. The other major ingredients include grape juice concentrate, rasins, and date puree.

This energy bar is more like a Cliff bar than a power bar, but I didn't care for it all that much. I'm sure that if your primary concern is getting protein, this is a good way to get it, but I prefer the other, softer, more flavorful odwalla bars.

  1. I'm thinking of try it, hopefully I turn out liking it.

  2. Let me know what you think after you've had it.

  3. I tried the "super protein" and it was Yummy with a capital Y. I haven't tried the others, but I am looking for higher protein. I don't want a bar with just 4-8 grams of protein so this was perfect. Now I'm off to find out where I can purchase them by the box cheaper than in the Garden Shop.
