Simple Squares Organic Snack Bar Ginger -- 1.6 oz
This is a GREAT product but...
So far I have tasted the cinnamon/cloves, the coconut and the ginger. Loved the first two and LOVE that these snack bars are made with (actually, truly made with) healthy ingredients. They are a little on the sweet side for my taste but I know I'm out of the norm there so that's not a real problem.
I just got the ginger variety and though I absolutely LOVE ginger (eat it every day), I do not like these ginger Simple Squares; just something wrong, weird and not to my liking with the taste--way too sweet and not enough ginger. I will continue to buy other flavors just not this ginger one.

Finally something I can eat
This past weekend I had one of your simple squares for the first time and I felt the need to contact you. This year I was diagnosed with an auto-immune disorder and to help manage it I've been put on a very strict diet where I have had to eliminate gluten, yeast, diary, and processed sugar, as well as limit even natural sugar in fruit. When I'm at home and I have some extra time, it's not too difficult to make something that I can eat, but if I'm out or I'm in a rush, I've struggled to find something that I can grab quickly that actually tastes good. This weekend we were at the airport and I was taking a look through all of the snack bars at one of the stores. I was pretty sure I wasn't going to be able to eat any of them but I seem to torture myself by reading through all of the ingredients anyways just to be sure. When I found your simple squares I was surprised and decided to give the cinna-clove one a try but was skeptical because I've tried a lot of products out there that are gluten, sugar, and dairy free that taste absolutely awful. But when I tasted it for the first time I immediately turned to my husband and said, "You have to try this!!" It was fantastic!! I re-read the ingredients because I was afraid I might have missed something. I couldn't believe that there was finally a store-bought "treat" that I was allowed.
Thanks for making such a great product! I'm a mom to a busy toddler and it was tough to give up my old sugary granola bars and packaged snacks because they were so easy to grab when I was in a rush. I'm really glad to know there's something I can now replace those old snacks with that is good for me and actually tastes BETTER than the stuff I used to eat.
