New recipe - not great!
Posted by 5003667200259230092 on Oct 25, 2014
EDIT (2 STARS): Green Plus has since changed its recipe from the time of my original review. Hence, I am updating the review to reflect the new recipe. Unfortunately, while I loved the old recipe, I do not enjoy the new recipe at all. Both the texture and taste of these have changed. The new recipe is coarser in texture, with the addition of chopped peanuts and bigger rice crisp. Taste wise, it is much sweeter, nuttier and the pleasant 'green' taste of the old bars are no longer present. The flavours do not come together as well anymore. In all, I do not like these bars one bit. It is such a pity as the old recipe was pretty near perfect (the texture was refined and the flavours were delicately balanced). I will not be repurchasing after I reluctantly finish the rest of my 11 bars. i much prefer the more 'delicate' and refined bars that it was previously. ORIGINAL REVIEW (4 STARS) Green, but they taste good to me! I really enjoy eating this vegan bar - it is very green and seaweed tasting, which most people might not like, but it really does it for me. It also an ever so slightly peanut butter aftertaste, which balances out the greenness perfectly. In fact, this is my favourite vegan bar I have had so far. I much prefer this flavour to the other (dark chocholate, peanut butter & blueberry crisp), which I find to be too sweet. On the other hand, my boyfriend dislikes this while he loves the other flavour. It might help to add that I am a vegan and a health nut, while he is neither of the two. However, one thing we both can agree on, is that we prefer the taste and texture of these bars over Larabars and we will be buying these from now on instead.

I prefer the Greens Plus Superfood Energy bars better, similar ingredients but don't seem as sweet as these. The texture of these bars is quite firm and chewy, and an odd sweetness I think is due to stevia or licorice - leaves a strange aftertaste...
Very healthy taste

I figured this would be a less sweet options, but was disappointed. The licorice flavor is very overpowering for my liking, so I ended up giving most bars to people who enjoy that flavour more than me. The texture is nice. You can taste the green, so if you like it and don't mind licorice, this might be nice for you.
