Go Bar Macrobar Peanut Butter Chocolate - a review
Organic brown rice syrup
Organic peanut butter
Organic Protein Blend (Organic Brown Rice Protein, Organic Pea Protein), Organic Puffed Brown Rice, Organic Fair Trade Organic Chocolate Chips (Organic Cane syrup, O Chocolate Liquor, Organic Cocoa Butter), Organic Peanuts
In case you are wondering - "cut and paste" is my favorite computing tool. Imagine how batty I'd be now, if I had to type "Organic" each and every time I saw it on the label!
So.... No soy protein or soy isolates or soy anything else (as far as they are admitting), and no "kicked in the gut" feeling soon after I eat it. I'm cautiously optimistic.
It's not a crispy bar - chewy and not too sweet, but not so chewy as to be sticky or pull on your dentures or orthodontal or other dental apparatus you may have.
It has a nice mild peanut flavor and the chocolate chip was not overpowering either. I didn't taste or smell anything like moldy peanut smell, like I do with other types of protein bars. Seems like it was under $3 a bar at Nature's Grocers (where I think I got it, but I can't remember exactly when - maybe a month or so ago? Like August?)
Thought I'd share this, as no one sent me a free case of the stuff to sample and write about (I wish!). I bought it with our own money (hubby earns, I spend. And he liked it too!).
