Pop Culture Product Review

Posted on December 27, 2009. Filed under: Product Review | Tags: , , |

You all know I love my probiotics, right? And you all know I love my bar stash, right? So you must know I was flippin’ when I found a bar with probiotics. Pop Culture fortifies their two flavors with a special, shelf-stable strand of bacteria with 10x the viable cells of supermarket yogurt. I got the chance to sample and review both of their current flavors and here are my thoughts.

Yogurt Fruit & Nut

8.5/10: With 4g of fiber and a host of live and active probiotic cells, Pop Culture packs a lot into a 90 calorie, 1oz bar perfect for your pocket. The yogurt coating might have been slight, but I loved what there was of it; it reminded me exactly of yogurt covered raisins or pretzels. The fruit in the bar really came out more of a generic sweetness than any flavor, and the nuts were disappointingly unrecognizable, though I don’t know how they could have been with such a slight nutrition label. But in the end the yogurt coating saved it all and made this a tasty treat.

Chocolate Chip Granola

8/10: As a lover of probiotics, I’m always excited to find them in a new form. Here, Pop Culture takes the traditional and adds a huge twist; their unique strand of bacteria and methodology allows for a shelf-stable granola bar with probiotics. I liked the abundance of chocolate chips and the small, snack size. I also liked that it had protein from soy isolates to boost the nutrition so that this wasn’t an over-glorified granola bar. With only 1 strand of bacteria, though, this isn’t the best to rely on fully. And the texture was a bit chewier than my liking. Overall, this was a fun way to switch up the daily yogurt trend(and add a few more chocolate chips to my life ;-) )

Oh you guys have some crazy things in the States. Do those Probiotics though really amount to much -I mean, what you eat in a single bar? Wouldn’t you have to eat alot of them? Great review though Mr. Review Man :)…and agreed, there should always be ways to add chocolate chips to life!
