I look for good taste, a snack bar that is not layered in chocolate, and moist enough to not fall apart all over me when I am eating. Of course good value to the calories I consume is important too.

thank you for the chance.

I look for a bar that tastes good. Most protein bars I've had are too dense and thick or something. But I'm so willing to keep trying.
