Taste test: PowerBar was the first energy bar, prompting hundreds of imitators as well as variations on the theme from the Powerbar company itself.

Eating this bar reminded me of why the original still beats most of what came after. This bar was soft, dense and flexible, with a sweet peanut flavor, easy to gobble down fast right after exercising. The texture was slightly gritty, but far less so than many energy bars. Oddly, many of the bars in the 24-pack that this one came in were extra-thick but stretched for less than the full length of the wrapper, leaving a half-inch gap at one end.

Smell test: OK, but not like peanut butter.
