    A lot of these bars get squashed beyond edibility in my purse when I'm on the go, but these do a good job of holding together. They also fill my chocolate desires pretty well. It helps to have water to wash them down, though -- they are a bit dense.

    I do wish they didn't have high-fructose corn syrup, otherwise I'd give them 5 stars.

    I've used these bars for YEARS as my standard mid-morning meal, eating 2 bars with dried cranberries every morning after getting into the office. I don't know what they've done to these bars, but the taste went of them went from good to AWFUL, and I plan to switch flavors and possibly even brands.

      Comments about Balance Bar Nutrition Bar for Lasting Energy, Almond Brownie, 15 ea:

      I eat this bar everyday at work as a snack and before I exercise. I have eaten it for years. It really does keep you "balanced" :). I am, however, disappointed that it appears they have changed the recipe. It is now dry and kind of crumbly and somewhat pasty tasting once you start chewing. It used to be softer and a better tasting. I will still keep using it, but I wish they would change back to the original recipe.

        Comments about Balance Bar Nutrition Bar for Lasting Energy, Almond Brownie, 15 ea:

        The first one I ate was absolutely disgusting. ALL you could taste was vitamins. The others were so-so. The first one must have been the bottom of the batch, but that B vitaminy taste was consistent throughout the entire box. A good strong cup of coffee helps to make them edible, but I won't buy this flavor again. The chocolate cookie mint ones are delicious though. :-p

          I use this bar as instant nutrition. I always carry one in my purse. It actually does "balance" me. I have to eat something every couple of hrs or I get light headed. When I eat this bar I pretty much feel instantly better. I really like that it does not have any frosting on it so it is not a melty mess when you eat it. Both my husband and I eat these bars daily as a snack between meals. I have been buying them for years and will continue to buy them.

            As part of a change to better fitness years ago, I replaced my high calorie lunch sweets with a balance bar. I enjoy a number of their different flavors and have yet to find another nutritional bar that beats their taste.

              This flavor of balance bar is unique for balance bars in that it has nuts, no candy coating and is also gluten (and oat) free. I love the taste and texture - like fudgie brownies with almonds.

                good source of protein, lower fat content than other similar protein bars (though not incredibly low), and the chocolate almond taste is great

                  I love these bars! Hard to find in the stores so must buy online. Soothes my chocolate cravings after dinner and I try to eat half a one but sometimes they are so good I eat it all!! Also always take one with me. If I am running and can't stop to eat this is my meal with plenty of water! Yummmmm! Tastes like a brownie. I think they got smaller tho but the almond pieces are getting bigger.
