    I received the Brookside Dark Chocolate Fruit & Nut Bars from the Product Review Club.

    These initial comments are relevant to all 3 flavours and flavour specific comments are below.
    My first impression was that they looked amazing. I really liked the transparent packaging. The Visual appeal of the bars is strong with quality ingredients being prominently displayed.

    The portion size is good although $2.00 a bar is a too high in my opinion.

    They use lots of buzzwords like Gluten Free, High Fibre, Source of Antioxidant, All Natural Flavours etc. based on the marketing and packaging of the bars, I believed that I was getting a really healthy, wholesome bar that I could feel good about eating.

    After tasting the bars and reading the ingredient list I'm not so sure that's true. Look closely at the ingredients and you will find that almost 50% of the bars main ingredients are or include high sugar components. (The ingredients are more or less the same for each of the 3 flavours)

    (Ingredient #2) Dark Chocolate (sugar; Chocolate; Cocoa Butter; Milk Fat; Cocoa Processed With Alkali; Soy Lecithin; Milk; Salt; Vanilla)
    Sweetened Blueberries (blueberries; Sugar)
    High Maltose Corn Syrup
    Sweetened Cranberries (CRANBERRIES; Sugar; Grape Juice Concentrate; Blueberry Juice Concentrate; Sunflower Oil)
    Invert Sugar
    Sugar

    I think its important to be fully aware of the true nature of a product rather than the presented nature of a product. If you are buying this bar because you think its a super healthy alternative to some of the other popular snack options you may be mistaken.

    Blueberry Acai was the flavour I enjoyed the most of the three. Blueberry Cranberry may be a better description however. It was the least sweet and most natural tasting. I love the whole almonds and the pumpkin seeds, I love the texture and the crunch of the bars, and I love the visual appeal of the product. I wish the fruit was not soaked in sugar and I wish that high maltose corn syrup was not used as the binding agent. The dark chocolate is the second listed ingredient on the bars and its flavour is completely lost among the rest of the sweetness.

    I love these bars! Great crunch, lots of fruit flavour and not too sweet at all. The acai flavour really stood out which was great paired with the dark chocolate coating. Perfect snack bar to keep in your bag!

    I was one of the lucky testers from the Chick Advisor program to test this amazing snack bar. It is full of flavor and the texture is just what I would expect a little chewy and delish Blueberry and Acai go well together to make this bar special

    This flavour was my favorite out of the blue. This bar made me feel as though I was eating dessert minus all the calories that come with dessert! It also made me feel alot more energized.

    I was given these Brookside bars by Chick Advisor to test and boy I lucked out because I loved them. The blueberry with acai was my favourite out of the three bars but I enjoyed them all. The blueberry with acai had great flavour and both fruits were prominante when eating the bar. I found the dark chocolate was the prefect mix along with the nuts and fruit. I'm a big fan of the Brookside chocolate covered snacks and felt this was a great healthy option for a snack. It was chewy and very flavourful and could be enjoyed anytime of day.

    I love the taste. These are a perfect snack for when you get a chocolate craving. They are very convenient to eat on the run and stash one in your desk or purse. Each bar gives a nice size serving of protein and fibre. I wouldn't replace real fruit with these bars, but for cravings and convenience they are great!
