Taste test: This wide, thick bar had a beige sugary coating on the bottom and half of the edges, and the uncoated part looked looked a granola bar.
It was easy to bite off a piece, and the taste and texture was marginal very dense and a little gritty, slightly sweet with some banana flavor. Acceptable if you need a portable source of quick energy, but nothing great. Definitely heed the warning on the label and have a beverage with this bar, because you will want something to wash away the taste and aftertaste. Personally, I'd much rather eat a good banana than have banana-flavored anything.
Smell test: Definitely smells like bananas and nuts.
