Much better than Frontier Natural Products brand

I just purchased the large bag by Frontier Natural Products, and not having previously tasted cacao nibs I didn't know what to expect. When I received it in the mail, I noticed that the bag had a small puncture, but I tried them anyway. The taste was bitter and what I am guessing to be the taste of rancid nibs. I thought they were so nasty that I had thrown them away. Yet, I've heard how delightful the taste of cacao nibs were, so I went ahead and tried TerrAmazon brand. The taste of TerrAmazon is 5x better than Frontier Naturals. No bitter taste and really delicious. If this is your first time trying cacao nibs, they are not sweet. Just nutty with the smell of rich chocolate and crunchy texture. I add them to a homemade trail mix that includes nibs, mulberries, raisins, cashiews, pistachios, and goji berries.

The vanilla almonds are slightly too sweet but it still makes a combination of what's ultimately just almonds and cranberries very interesting. In this mix are: - Chocolate covered almonds - Vanilla glaze coated almonds - Dried Cranberries Try it!

I enjoyed this with sweetened almond milk. When I first prepared this concoction of 1 scoop with 1 cup of sweetened vanilla almond milk, I was wondering why the heck it tasted so much better than last time. I then realized it was because of the almond milk AND the fact that it was chocolate, not the original flavor. With that being said, if you tried the original and didn't think much of it, I promise that the Chocolate flavor is much better in taste. However, the problem with the Garden of Life raw meals (regardless of flavor) is that it turns gelatinous quickly. It's very slimy in texture and it's probable that once it reaches that physical state, you will have a hard time drinking it. I find that I enjoy it the first few sips when it's still somewhat like "chocolate milk." This formula is so nutritious and filling that I'm going to struggle to keep on drinking it. I hope that eventually my body will start to crave the nutrients and minerals that it contains, since these days I've stopped buying eggs (my only source of animal products). It's going to be hard.

They do the job but I wouldn't purchase them again

There are better tasting superfood bars out there. 3 stars because they do the job of keeping me full for 3 hours, 2 stars missing because these have the taste of a multivitamin blended with fruit and nuts. I haven't lost faith in probar, so I am optimistic about trying a different flavor next.

Tastes horrible

Honestly on the first bite, I really thought it was 5 star all the way. After finishing 1/3, the taste of sucralose and something super bitter started to take over and overall the bar because it was TOO creamy. Finishing all 12 of these bars are going to be really, really difficult. I would be open to trying other flavors just definitely not French Vanilla ever again.
