This one was pretty good! I liked it. It tasted most strongly of lemon, and actually tasted quite a bit like lemon meringue pie, which was weird since the textures are so totally different. At first I couldn't taste the ginger at all, but by the time I was halfway through the bar, the ginger was making itself known as both a vague flavor and a slight burn at the back of my throat. Yum!

I expected to like this one, but strangely I don't. It seems drier than some of the others, and tastes maybe sort of like the bran part of raisin-bran cereal, only less good. Not cinnamon-y enough for me and I don't like the squishiness of the raisins. Huh.

Now this bar is considerably less sweet than the others. It contains ground coffee beans, which I think must be what give it the rich, dark, hint-of-bitter taste it has going on. I didn't notice any chocolate chips in it (even though the ingredient list says they're in there, but maybe they sort of melted during the process or, LOL, during the time the box of bars sat outside my side door?) but it does have a chocolate-y taste, it just isn't strong. This was nice. I didn't like it as much as banana walnut but definitely more than chocolate brownie. Not sure I would get it again unless I was in the mood for what it delivers, which is a semi-strong coffee *pow*.

Hm. Think I'm going to have to side with [livejournal.com profile] justhuman on this one. It's okay, but calling it "chocolate" or "brownie" would be overly generous. It has a nice, dense, sticky texture, and it's moderately sweet, but it takes more like cocoa powder than actual chocolate and I can also taste what I assume (without looking at the ingredient label) is something like raisin or date, some sticky-sweet-fruit sort of thing. It vaguely reminds me of some little no-bake cookies we used to make when I was a kid, which had, I think, oatmeal and cocoa powder and raisins in them.

Currently, I think my fave is the banana walnut, with orange cranberry a close second.

I don't know why I tried this bar first, since I didn't expect to like it at all. I do like bananas, but I don't like walnuts at ALL, and one review I read said something about the chunks of walnuts and I thought, "Ooh, ick, I won't like that."

Anyway, I was totally wrong. Delicious! It's a dense, moist bar, kind of like a cross between a finely-ground granola bar and a slice of banana bread. It has a nice chunky texture, but I didn't notice any chunks of walnuts in particular. It's sweet, but not so sweet that it made me feel like I just had a sugar hit, and the banana flavor comes through clearly. YUM.

I keep thinking that I'm going to post, but then when I sit down to write something it all seems stupid and pointless, hence the fact that all I've been posting is recipes (good) and OCD stuff (a lot less good). My brain is pretty screwed up, sadly, and I'm starting to realize that there's no cure for that, not really, not a permanent cure. There are things that help, but there's no magical solution. It's hard.

I ordered some Gnu fiber bars because [livejournal.com profile] justhuman likes them and who couldn't use more fiber? Only that would be me, apparently, now that I'm eating all these fruits and vegetables, LOL. I ordered one of every flavor except the orange cranberry, which I've already tried -- it was good, the orange flavor very strong, nice and moist. JH has warned me that the chocolate brownie flavor is bad, but I had to try it for myself. The funny thing is, I ordered them last week, and then last night thought, "Hey, whatever happened to my fiber bars?" So I went to my inbox and found the email from when the package had shipped, and clicked on the tracking link, and it said "delivered 7/17, side door." And I went, "HUH? It's, like, the 22nd!" And sure enough, my fiber bars had been sitting between the side screen door and the side door for five days, LOL. Luckily, they were totally fine. Good thing it wasn't a nice box of chocolates, though!

One week from now, I'll be at the airport waiting to fly out to Writercon! Yay!!! I am nervous about the traveling part of the trip, as always, but otherwise really looking forward to it. Still trying to decide if it's worth the effort to lug the laptop along with me -- it'd be a lot less hassle to leave it at home...
