This review is about a product that I had never heard of before. I was perusing Amazon looking for interesting protein bars to purchase, and I came across a company named Pottentia.
As far as I can tell, they only have three products so far. The first of these protein bars that I will review is their Double Chocolate flavor.
I purchased and received three boxes from them, containing 8 bars per box. I decided to give these products a chance, even though I normally like to purchase one flavor of a product at a time. So, I was a bit apprehensive about receiving 24 of these bars at once, 8 of each flavor, but they were not overly expensive and I decided to give them a go.
There was always the chance that I would not like them, thus only eating three of the twenty-four that arrived at my doorstep, one of each flavor. But not to worry, because I really liked these protein bars. Eating through three boxes of these is not going to be a problem, because they are really tasty.
List Of Ingredients
I really like the ingredients in the Double Chocolate flavor. Mostly for the fact that there is not many ingredients. I like to go by the philosophy that the fewer the ingredients, normally the better the nutrition of the product.
There are many protein bars that have a long list of ingredients that I think are delicious, but having a protein bar with very few ingredients, as well as tasting great and having decent nutrition is rather rare. This bar has got a lot of goodness in it.
Grass Fed Whey Protein Isolate, Almonds, Chicory Root Fiber, Dates, Dark Chocolate, Salt.
That is it. Those are the list of ingredients. I really like what this bar doesn’t have in it, as well as the few ingredients it does have. I feel that this bar is very clean and nutritious.

My Honest Review
This protein bar is a little different from most that Iv’e tried so far. Many bars are like eating a candy bar, very sweet, with little or no protein flavor to them.
Other bars are very gritty, and have a strong protein, almost medicinal taste. These types of bars I typically try once and write them off, because I want my protein bars to taste good.
The Pottentia Double Chocolate is very much in the middle, taste wise. They are not overly sweet, and are not very gritty. They taste good, but not great. These taste good enough that I will happily consume all that I purchased, but may or may not purchase again.
The protein content is decent and it has a decent amount of fiber. There is a mild dark chocolate flavor, and a chewy smooth finish to them which is nice, but they are definitely not in the sweet candy bar tasting category.
I would say that they are a good tasting protein bar, that eats like a standard protein bar. With minimal, clean ingredients, I would suggest trying these out, but don’t expect to blown away by the flavor or texture. It’s a good product that can add a bit of protein to your diet, without all the sugary sweetness.
