Jif Power Ups Chewy Granola Bars Chocolate Flavored with Peanut Butter

Buy chocolate on Amazon

Taste test: This snack shared Jif's new Power Ups brand name with their Creamy Clusters, but really it was a different thing in nearly every way. The box contained five individually wrapped bars, each with a full coating of chocolate on the bottom, with chocolate drizzles on the sides and top that let most of the granola base show through.

I bit in to find a dense, chewy feel with a bit of grittiness, and the interior seemed to consist of somewhat crushed peanuts, plus the usual granola stuff. They put "peanut butter" in the name, but I couldn't really notice any. So the bar lacked the crunch of the Clusters' granola exterior, as well as the smoothness of their peanut butter center. Not a standout among granola bars, nor among chocolate-and-PB snacks. Meh.

Smell test: Nice mix of peanut butter and chocolate.

From the package: “Peanut-packed” ... “Chewy yumminess” ... “Say hello to Jif® Power Ups® — the perfect snack that starts with peanuts. Packed with goodness and go-to deliciousness, everyone wins with Jif Power Ups granola bars.”
