I was really excited when I was offered the chance to try these new No Cow bars by D’s Naturals.
Reasons to be impressed:
- Things that are not included: Dairy, GMOs, Gluten, Sugars, Artificial Sweeteners, Soy
- Fun Flavors: Peanut Butter Cookie Dough: Mint Chocolate Chip, Blueberry Cobbler, Chocolate Pecan Pie
- High protein: 20 or 21g of protein per bar
- A story: The founder/CEO is an 18-year-old … that is pretty remarkable!
I was very intrigued when I read most of those stats… and when I got the bars I was pleased when the first bite had really good flavor for most flavors. The blueberry was kind of “meh” for me.
So… are you getting the impression that there is a BUT here? Cause there is one small caveat. But it’s also kind of a big caveat too.
Even with a good flavor, I found the texture undesirable. It just felt dry and laborious to muster a will to want to keep chewing.
I prefer my food-in-bar-form to remind me of actual food. I like seeing visual cues of familiar items like nuts and fruits and oats. So overall, these were not a success for me.
