Review: Dr. Mercola’s Organic Protein Bars

I was given a box of Dr. Mercola’s Pure Power Protein Bars in order to facilitate my review.  All opinions are 100% mine.

For the last 3 days, I have had Dr. Mercola’s pure power protein bars for breakfast.  I make it a point to eat a protein bar for breakfast every day.  I do this because it is a great meal before my morning workout and I am just too busy to actually sit and eat breakfast.  Eating a protein bar allows me to eat on the run or while getting my kids up and going for school in the mornings.  I have my favorites and love to test out different brands as long as they contain fiber and low calories.  I was contacted by Dr. Mercola Pure Power Protein bars about a review and when I heard the nutritional info, I was definitely interested.  The contain 4 grams of fiber, 14 grams of protein and only 220 calories per bar.  Their bars are also organic and vegan as well.  This works perfectly with my Weight Watchers plan and also comes in my favorite flavor:  Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip.  While researching them online, I came across an article about the release of these new bars, if you’d like to hear more about them, check it out.

Here’s a picture of the unwrapped organic, vegan protein bar with peanut butter and chocolate chips.  Notice the long lasting expiration date on the package.

Check out the nutritional information and see if they meet your approval.  After eating these protein bars, I would definitely say they meet my approval, both in taste and nutritional values.  These will definitely go on my list of must have protein bars.

This is a rather odd image, but I wanted you to see the texture of these protein bars.  They are not hard, they are flexible and can be torn apart with your hands.  They do not have the consistency of a regular candy bar.  This texture is fine for me, but my kids would never eat anything like this because they would automatically file it under “diet food.”  I eat protein bars because I enjoy their taste, they give me energy, they keep my satisfied and they are great for my busy morning schedule.

When watching my diet, they help me to control the amount of morning calories, when comparing this bar to a breakfast burrito or a chicken n’ biscuit, your waist line is much better off with the protein bar.  The weekends are the hardest on me, so I keep a great tasting protein bar in my purse and eat that when my family decides to grab kolaches, donuts or taquitos in the morning.  Then I don’t feel so bad when we eat a big supper at one of my favorite restaurants.

What is your normal breakfast routine?  Do you eat protein bars on a regular basis?  If so, what are your favorite flavors?
