A few days ago I dared myself to purchase a chocolate Powerbar, wondering if it's still the same extrusion of nearly inedible tar that I remember from my childhood. Having eaten it, I'm happy to report that it's both more chocolaty and easier to chew than I recall, although I would still describe the texture and flavor as detestable and chewing it made my jaw cramp up. Maybe someday they'll come up with an energy bar that actually tastes good, and it will be called Cliffbar. Until then, I'll just have to keep eating the many varieties of other energy bars that are so, so much better. Does anyone eat Powerbars anymore?
