I use these bars as a meal and/or post work- out or post -ballet At 300 +- calories that is lot for a woman on a 1400 calorie diet. However they really make a difference in providing beneficial oils as well as fiber and protein. Drink lots of water with them and enjoy. Especially good to get that good nutrition in after a heavy work-out where one might be tempted by less beneficial items. Oh yes, I think they taste really good too. No chemical or artificial flavors.

Organic Food Bars are excellent - quality protein/carb/fat sources, more fiber than most bars, no artificial sweeteners, overall good texture and they taste great. There are only a few bars on the market I would recommend, and these are the top of my list.
A couple notes - the protein bar is drier than the other flavors and the fiber bar is "oilier", but I find both better tasting than many of the other companies bars I've tried in the past.
I just got the strawberry organic vegan protein shake mix and it tastes horrible. I can't believe an organic, vegetable product tastes like all-chemical fertilizer. It has a nasty, metallic taste. This is the worst-tasting protein shake mix I've ever tried. I'll try to gag it down one more time, but I may end up throwing it out and kissing the cost goodbye.
This is the only thing I've ever gotten through Netrition I've been unhappy with.
