I bought this based on the high star rating without reading the label--mistake. What we've got here is not too different from a jar of Skippy. It's got added sugar in the form of agave syrup, which is basically just as bad for you as high-fructose corn syrup as they're virtually identical. Next, they add in palm fruit oil, which is likely from an unsustainable source. Finally, they add in salt. Don't be fooled by this product's name or the reviews. This is NOT healthy peanut butter. Go buy some Arrowhead Mills peanut butter here. It only has one ingredient, like peanut butter should (but if you add in a pinch of salt, that's okay too).

It wasn't until I closely looked at the package that I realized that this is 50% sugar. If you're using this in a recipe calling for cocoa powder, you'll have to use twice as much, and then reduce the sugar accordingly (at least directions for this are on the bag). This is not really a good deal, realizing that it's half what the label says it is.

My first impression of these was "overpriced Raisinets" as the chocolate is the same low quality, however the cherries also lack flavor and are too dry.

These lack mango flavor, with the taste of sugar being what you actually get. If I saw these in the store I would know better than to purchase them as their color is quite pale, and pale dried mangoes always lack flavor.

Predominate flavor is vinegar. The mustard taste is muted, and I can't detect an iota of heat from the horseradish. The texture is also fibrous, which is just weird.

This mustard has life, fire, and vitality. It's more akin to wasabi than common mustard--and that's a good thing. This mustard will spice up your sandwiches, make sausages scrumptious, and add a very distinct note to recipes (though you probably want Colman's powder for cooking). Amazingly, there is no vinegar in it.

The chocolate itself is very delicious, but I cannot detect any peach taste at all. There are plenty of pieces in there, but they just don't have enough flavor. I much prefer Chocolove's chilies & cherries, orange, or raspberry chocolate bars as you can definitely taste the fruits in those.

I bought this primarily for Indian recipes, but after opening it I knew I was going to be using it for a lot more--like spreading on bread. This has so much more wonderful butter flavor than typical butter. And without milk solids in it, it can withstand high temperatures much better than butter. This is EXCELLENT for pan frying a steak.

The taste and texture is better than 100% brown rice pasta, but I don't know if that's because they're using white rice as the main ingredient, or if the quinoa helps. However, while on one hand it does have a consistency very much like wheat pasta, the outside ends up overcooked and the inside beyond al dente. Apparently this pasta shape doesn't lend itself to this rice/quinoa blend. If I was going to try this for the first time, I'd buy the spaghetti--but iHerb doesn't stock it, so go with the macaroni instead, but even then for the price you're given a very meager amount; the cost is about 5x higher than wheat pasta.

I'm so glad that iHerb stocks this, as the only other option would be for me to make it. This is a perfectly fine egg noodle pasta. It is great for dishes like beef stroganoff.
