Vegetarian heading to a picnic?
Don't want to bring one sad little veggie burger to be grilled alongside all of that meaty meat meat? Take along one of these bars instead. No, really. They're packed with protein and really scratch that barbeque itch. Who needs burgers and brats when we have hickory bars? Get. In. My. Belly!
So I'm always skeptic of anything called smoked. Hickory Smoked, Hugh? Must be some liquid carcinogenic chemical (Unwrapping this nutty bar of FAKE). Can't fool my tastebuds (Smelling familiar hints of Hmmmm??). This is going to taste like... (WOOOAAAHHHH!!!!) STRONG AND KIND BAR, WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE? HICKORY SMOKED GOODNESS WITH SO MUCH FLAVOR AND HAPPINESS. I'LL BE BACK TO FIND MORE OF YOU!!!
Similar to another reviewer, I would have never tried unless it was a sample which I received a cycling event. A savory snack bar seemed odd, but I was SO surprised at how GOOD and TASTY it was.
Very smoky, very satisfying. When I see it anywhere, I grab a box. My store doesn't normally carry any of the savory flavors, wish they did!
To be honest, I probably wouldn't have tried this flavor without it being a sample. At first, I felt like I was eating a honey-drizzled campfire. It wasn't offensive, it was just different. But I REALLY liked the composition of the bar (now affectionately called the "birdseed bar" by all my friends). I prefer to eat bars by breaking off little pieces, so this worked perfectly to suit that type of delivery. I like how every ingredient is recognizable. The flavor has definitely grown on me- I really appreciate the subtle sweetness mixed with the unique savory. I will always choose savory over sweet so it hits the spot. I now eat half on my way to the gym and half on the way home to prevent me from post-gym-hunger raiding the fridge. Please never take this away from me!
This is my favorite so far. The first bite reminded me of bacon and it made me happy. Its great to finally have some options that are not sweet. I do not have a sweet tooth and this is the type of flavor profile that I crave.
