This tastes almost burnt. It's not the nice bitterness of really dark chocolate, and it's not sweet like lighter chocolate. It's like it's mostly cocoa butter with some very light coconut flavor, and then an off chocolate taste. I'm going to try to cook with it, melt it and make it into something else, but I really can't salvage it eating it straight. I'll stick with more traditional dark chocolates in the future.
Nice balance of rich dark chocolate and sweet orange
The little bits of candied orange make this bar seem sweeter than regular 60% dark chocolate might.

If you are a chocolate-covered almond snob like me, this is pricey but worth it. The dark chocolate on these almonds is the perfect balance of sweet/bitter. The vanilla almonds are nice too, and the cranberries are standard slightly sticky-sweet dried cranberries. Really a good mix. I buy too many and eat them too fast, but that I can keep justifying buying it is a testament to the deliciousness.
So-so taste, good nutrition

This is super protein powder. Fiber, vitamins, all the amino acids. I bought it on sale and blend one scoop with one frozen banana and one cup of water. It's a little too sweet for me, with the strong stevia taste, and the flavor is... not bad, but not good. I'd recommend the vanilla chai flavor instead, which is still too sweet but tastes better.
This is the gourmet version of Crunch bars. The quinoa is very light and crispy and is a nice counterpoint to the dark chocolate. I personally prefer slightly darker chocolate (70% ish) but this is still a nice balance between sweet and rich.

I bought these because the ingredients list didn't look like it came out of a chemistry lab and I wasn't disappointed. These bars have a great chocolate taste with the right amount of fruit sweetness and nice chewy/crispy texture.
These are fruit leather, with none of the gelled, candy-like texture or overwhelming sticky sweetness of other dried mango. Can sometimes be a little tough to chew, but if you tear it into bite-sized bits before biting in it's great.
Amazing taste, but probably cheaper to make at home
These are fantastic, and for me the taste and convenience makes it worth the price. But it's nothing special that you couldn't make at home if you have the time.
Rich with crunchy mint bits
Very tasty, with a nice balance of rich chocolate and crisp mint. There are little crunchy mint 'bits' mixed in, and personally I'd prefer a smooth texture, but it's not bad.
Darker chocolate please!
I'd prefer a higher %, this is almost a little too sweet for me. But the almond and sea salt are fantastic, thanks to this bar I am a big fan of salting other chocolate treats.
