I usually stick to Quest Bars but decided to give this a try. It is not sweet like Quest Choc Brownie, and I think it tastes a little bitter. I thought I would not like it after the first bite because I don't usually like bitter dark chocolates, but I actually like this bar. The texture of the bar is also smoother and softer than Quest. I can't say which I prefer (both are good!) so I will alternate between Muscletech and Quest Choc Brownie depending on whether I want something sweeter or softer.

Was sceptical because I had tried some others previously that tastes awful. But these mints tastes ok and more importantly works for me!

Bought Cookies n Cream, Peanut Butter and Red Velvet Cake at the same time. Cookies n Cream tastes the best. Peanut Butter is not too bad as well but where is the "Peanut Butter" taste? Red Velvet Cake tastes...sour. Somehow the bars from HealthSmart are very greasy, and just feel that it is really "unhealthy". Will probably only buy Cookies n Cream next time (just to curb my sugar craving occasionally).

Tried several brands of jerky, and this is by far the tastiest. Though giving it 4 stars as the sodium is quite high.

I love these crisp breads but they don't taste fresh after a while (really short shelf life)....

My doctor wanted me on statins but I have heard about all the side effects of it and stayed away. Tried Cholestene for about a month (on and off) and my cholesterol went down to a very good level that even the doctor was surprised. Unfortunately I have to stop it for now. I started experiencing excessive hair loss and slight sore muscles during the period. These side effects seemed to be less obvious when I stopped taking them. I am still not certain if Cholestene causes these reactions as I was also taking other supplements but the timing seemed to coincide with Cholestene. I wrote to Healthy Origins to enquire about this product, but no replies at all! Giving it a 2 star because although it seems to bring cholesterol down, it has negative effects on me and red yeast rice contains lovastatin similar to statins.

They came in small chunks and taste a little bitter. I just did not feel good taking them. Will return to whole chia of the same brand next, much better!

I wrote initially that I was a tad disappointed with these bars after reading all the nice reviews. The texture is a little too grainy and they are simply too sweet for me. I don't really like that there's too much biscuit bits in there as well, so gave it a 3-star. I also commented that I will probably not buy again. Though after trying another two more bars, I think I have grown to like it a little, at least I was not struggling to finish the last bite like the first time. I still don't like the biscuit bits (hope quest will go easier on them) but I do like the nice blueberry flavor. Willing to give these bars more tries and let's see if I will get sick of it, or changed my mind about buying them again.

It does not leave a yucky taste/aftertaste in my coffee, which is really good. However it is not as sweet as I expect. Maybe it is just me, but one pack in my cup of coffee just does not seem enough to sweeten the drink.

I thought choc brownie is good, but this is even better. Sweet but not too sweet, with nice soft chewy texture. The texture reminds me of Fit Elite (one of my favorite bars, unfortunately iherb is not selling). There is a hint of caramel taste, which is nice, though I just wish the choc taste can be a tad stronger(Choc lovers will probably have something to say about this!). This is one protein bar that leave me wanting to reach for another when I'm finished with the first one, and that usually doesn't happen. I'm also happy that it comes in a pack of 4, so that I can replenish new fresh ones when I'm done with the current pack. I'm putting in another order straight away!
