I had 2 small meals/snacks yesterday where I just had one of each flavor. For breakfast I had a Chocolate Brownie first and the texture / mouth feel (and ‘oiliness’) immediately reminded me of the deceased Food Bar (so somewhat similar to the original Power Bar but less gummy). And no crumbs! All three flavors are the same in this regard.
The Chocolate Brownie was good, but at first (and to be expected) the flavor did kinda remind me of a health / protein bar (in a negative way), as opposed to tasting like a candy bar but being healthy. But this kind of flavor grows on me fast, and I enjoyed it.
Then I had a Salted Caramel and it was okay/good. Wasn’t too memorable, I ate these three squares while I was concentrating on doing something else, but I know it was fine and nothing bothered me about it.
Last, I had a Citrus Berry, and again nothing about it left a truly negative impression. I do remember thinking this one is very candy like in flavor.
My initial overall impression of the three was that they are pretty sweet and probably not best suited as a breakfast for me (I’m still not really sure where I would fit these in).
I had a hard time falling asleep last night to the point that I was getting too hungry to fall asleep so I ate 3 more in reverse order (not on purpose). This order and time of day is much better than my original order and eating them for breakfast, the Citrus Berry just popped so much more when going first and as an evening snack.
I remember taking my first bite of my second Citrus Berry and being hit with a ton of candy flavor. It was very, very good. As I was chewing my last bite I had this exact same revelation:
I wanted to go get another one to really focus on the flavor, but mainly because I really wanted to eat another one.
I ate my second Salted Caramel of the day instead, and again I found it to be just okay/good. I think it is the blandest of the three, but in general it is definitely not bland. When I was finishing this one I wanted to go get another one to eat, but only because at the end it hit me that this is the old Food Bar, or at least close to it. I’m pretty sure the Food Bar was described/marketed as ‘salted caramel’ in flavor.
I don’t remember gleaning anything new about my second Chocolate Brownie of the day, other than thinking this one will probably have the broadest appeal. While Citrus Berry is probably my early favorite, I think there are more meals/snacks throughout the day where I would probably prefer a Chocolate Brownie (or even a Salted Caramel) to it.
So yeah, overall they are good and sweet and I’m not really sure what I’m going to do with them. Looking at just one wrapped Square seems like a ridiculously small portion of food, but it doesn’t really feel as ridiculous as it looks while eating it.
Yeah, I think this is an issue for me as well.
I’ve had a Vite Ramen (referral/discount link) almost every night since I received my Kickstarter backer kit and I still look forward to it every night. I actually get mildly upset when I have to eat something else for dinner.
