What reviewers didn't like

Texture is on the heavy and coarse side. Some varieties have more sugar than others. A few packages arrived damaged.
It just tastes like this really horrible brownie texture, and sweet with no good flavor.
The bars are less well-suited for runners as they require chewing. That can be a choking hazard when you are breathing hard. But Larabars could work well on a break during a long run.
They’re all about 190-240 calories, so it’s not quite a low-fat snack, but then again you’re eating nuts and fruit, so I can’t feel bad about that!
