Taste test: This bar was about the same size and shape as a typical granola bar, with an inside consisting of crisp rice and other ingredients, and a thin chocolate coating on the outside.
The taste was OK, with mild amount of mint and chocolate, and the texture was just slightly gritty. Considering the claims of low sugar levels, the taste was quite sweet, particularly the aftertaste. Not as good as a candy bar, but as energy bars go, this was decent.
Smell test: A pretty good minty chocolate smell.
From the package: “A balanced blend of carbohydrates, protein, and essential vitamins.” ... “5g Fiber 40% DV Calcium 170 Calories” ... “This bar contains 7g of sugar vs. 11 average per 45g of the leading everyday nutrition bars.”
