Taste test: We received this as part of a vendor's "survival kit" promotion for the Consumer Electronics Show. This flavor is supposed to remind you of a Snickers bar, as it has peanuts, caramel, chocolate and something that resembles nougat. But like all energy bars, this one tasted like they took all the taste out of the bar (or at least the sweet part). The bar was hard to chew, and the nougat tasted dry. I think all of the energy you might receive from eating this bar is wasted because of all the energy it takes to chew through it. Have a glass of water handy so you can wash this out of your mouth after you're done. That said, it wasn't the worst energy bar I've ever had, but it certainly wasn't the best.

Aroma: Smells like a chocolate energy bar (not a good chocolate smell).
