    I received this bar for review from Chick Advisor for free! :)
    This bar wasn't as tasty as the Blueberry with Acai bar variant, however it still satisfied my dark chocolate and nut fix!

    The bar was delicious but had a lot of sugar in it. Also in terms of price im sure that there are bars that are just as delicious but are cheaper. I don't think I would recommend this product because of the price and the sugar content.

    This one was not May favorite flovor combination. I liked the other 2 flavours a lot better. The size was great and they are decently health for a little treat.

    I really liked this bar - it gave me the energy fix I needed to get through the afternoon slump. I will be looking for these more often when I go shopping!

    I received this product for free as part of the ChickAdvisor Product Review Club. Given that the product was free, I can not speak to its price point. I didn't did this flavour to be very appealing and as such, can not recommend it to others.

    I received 3 of the Brookside Dark Chocolate Fruit & Nut Bars (different flavors) from Chick Advisor to review.

    Cranberry with Blackberry Flavour:

    Another not so good bar (see my other review for Cherry with Pomegranate).

    For the life of me, I couldn't find even find the word blackberry listed in the ingredients. Anyone?

    Just like the other 2 bars I reviewed, this one has a ton of sugar in it - a whopping 13g out of the 39g bar (33% sugar!!).

    This bar also tasted like it was made yesterday, yet I wasn't born 24hrs ago. It's unfortunate that Brookside fails to provide a healthy bar (imo). Get rid of the concentrate fruit juices, the sweetened fruit, and the sweetened chocolate.

    I'm trying to eat healthy and cut out refined sugars. Replace your sugar with honey, cut back your dark chocolate and give me unsweetened 70% cocoa dark chocolate. Sure it may not taste as fantastic, but after a few bars and a low sugar diet, the palate adapts and no longer requires something soooooo sweet.

    These bars do taste good, but so does candy. We need to be more selective and educated when it comes to the foods we eat. Enough with buzzword labels. Give me quality ingredients without compromise.

    Good tasting bar, but I can't recommend it.

    I received this product as a member of the Product Review Club. The taste was quite good. The amount of nuts and fruits in the bar was a nice balance. The bars are still quite high in sugar, so I would not say they are a health food. They would be a nice treat, however. Be sure to make sure the bars are nice and warm before you eat them, though, because I almost broke my teeth on a cold bar. It was rock hard.

    I thought this flavour was alright, not sure if I'd buy this particular one because I don' t like the taste of these two fruits together. I was not able to finish eating the whole thing because it wasn't my cup of tea. It had very similar texture as the others. I do like the dark chocolate though.

    i did not like the taste of this one compared to the other flavours. I am not a fan of blackberry and so that is likely why. I did really enjoy the other flavours however.

    I received this product as part of the ChickAdvisor Product Review Club, along with the Blueberry & Acai and Cherry & Pomegranate flavours. Of the three I received, this was probably my least favourite. Although I enjoyed the crunch of the nuts and the chocolate bits, I just didn't think that the cranberry and blackberry went well together. I actually picked out the cranberry bits halfway through, and ate the rest of the bar with just the blackberries, and I enjoyed that a lot! Maybe cranberries are just not for me. If you like them though, you may enjoy these bars!
