GoodOnYaBar Organic Nutritional Bar Peanut Butter Chocolate -- 12 Bars
Must-Try for PB Lovers!
Hopefully that other terrible review won't deter PB lovers from trying this bar! I realize that taste preference is a very individual thing, but I'll start by saying that I literally have a spreadsheet with nearly 600 health products and over 100 brands of health foods that I've tried and/or eat regularly. I ranked them in five categories: LOVED/REALLY liked; somewhat liked; didn't care for, HATED/STRONGLY disliked, and haven't yet tried. Within the LOVED/REALLY liked category, I've color-coded, with red font, 'the best of the best'. Let's just say, of the 339 products I've tried to date, only 25 of them have made my red list of 'the best of the best' and this bar was one of them. The only other bar with PB that I like better is The GFB's Peanut Butter (my all time #1 bar). For me, The GoodOnYa Bar's Choc. PB bar is slightly better that than both 22 Day's PB Nirvana Bar and Zing's Choc. PB bar, both of which I love as well.

Healthy...but tastes strange.
While I appreciate what the manufacturer tried to do with raw ingredients, either the sprouted flax or the raw hemp seeds give the bar an overpowering herbal flavor that isn't masked by the PB. The flax, hemp, and sesame seeds combine for an odd, somewhat pulpy texture. Also, there is only a small amount of chocolate in the bar, but the base of the bar is PB, raw honey, and sprouted flax. The chocolate is almost indiscernible. Last, the bar is at least as salty as it is sweet, and it left me thirsty.
