* Thankfully, Netrition offers Oatmega 3 Wellness Bars in single bars - so I bought 1 of each, except the dark chocolate mint (I bought 2 because I love chocolate mint). I'm willing to try anything once - especially when they are chock full of wonderful ingredients. I was very excited to try them - thinking this could be my new "quick-meal-on-the-go-bar". Well, these are not at all what I expected. I tried a small piece of the chocolate mint and thought it was "just okay", but not okay enough to repurchase or even finish the bar.
It just didn't taste that good at all. I only ate a piece and put the rest in the fridge - 5 days later I threw it out - I had no desire to finish it. Yesterday I tried the Chocolate Peanut - definitely a better flavor but still not something I would look forward to eating - I can find better things to eat that contain less calories and cost less. Maybe they should bake them or something but the taste is so lacking. Just BLAH to me.
Overall - I totally respect and appreciate what they were trying to do but for me, these were a big disappointment for such a promising product.
* Whew. These had good reviews but boy am I glad I only purchased one of each instead of a case. They have very good ingredients and overall nutrition but the taste is just punishing. The texture is not like your ordinary nutrition bar either as it is dense, sticky, and moist which I do not like. Maybe it is the agave nectar which is the second ingredient on the list and may be the cause of the odd sickly sweet taste. One who is into organics might like them but they just don't suit my taste which is usually any Zone Perfect or Balance bar.
