Customer Reviews:

  • I loved the Balance Bar Complete Nutrition Food ...
    I loved the Balance Bar Complete Nutrition Food Bar. The flavor was really good; it was better than the other similar type of bars. It gets a little bit dry when chewing it. If any one asked me about it I'd definitely recommend this product....more info
  • Great Bars!!!
    I really like this flavor and have been eating it for breakfast for about 3 years. Amazon is great to get it from, especially if you subscribe....more info
  • I really like this nutrition bar. I've tried ...
    I really like this nutrition bar. I've tried many nutrition bars over the years and I rate this one right in the top two or three. It's very tasty -- much like a cross between a chocolate/raspberry truffle and a 3-Musketeers bar. My kids like them too....more info

    Overall, I didn't like this product. It has a very thick and gooey center that's very hard to swallow unless I have a lot of water to wash it down with. The flavor wasn't too bad, but if they could just change it so wasn't so gummy... I wouldn't recommend this product to my family and friends....more info
  • Almond Brownie Balance Bars are my favorite!
    I've been eating Almond Brownie Balance Bars since roughly the year 2000. I used to eat another Balance Bar flavor (Honey Peanut), but found that I quickly tired of that taste. For some reason, I never get tired of Almond Brownie, perhaps because of the sweet chocolate fix it provides plus the suprise of the almond nuts.

    I prefer to eat the bar cold with some ice cold milk. This way, it tastes like a real brownie. Well, maybe that's a stretch, but after eating about 2000 (yes indeed) of these bars over the years, my taste buds have adjusted to the taste.

    Almond Brownie is my favorite Balance Bar flavor by far. In addiion to eating it cold, I can also eat it warm (if it's been siting in my car -- I live in Florida) along with water.

    Looks like Amazon Grocery has the lowest price by about 10%, which could save me up to $100 per year.

    By the way, I think the review dates for this Amazon Grocery item (and perhaps all reviews of Amazon Grocery items) are incorrect since all reviews appear to be from January 2000. This review was written on July 31, 2006....more info
  • Balance Bars
    The bars I recevied were past the "Best when used by" date by. Also, the bars were the original formula and not the new formula....more info
  • Near the top of the heap of non-meltable (car-friendly!) energy bars...
    This is one of my favorite "fall back" flavors of protein bar, among all brands. Why?
    1. They don't melt. I can leave one in my car for quick and efficient calories after a workout.
    2. Nice chocolate fix. If you eat many energy bars, you know that if the flavor includes the word "brownie" that its really not going to taste like a brownie, it will approximate the flavor as best as it can. Fortunately for Balance, their Almond Brownie flavor actually does pretty well in that regard. It is dense and fudge-like in its consistency with small almond chunks. You could let your mind wander for a minute and possibly think that you are eating a heavy brownie.

    The ingredients are not great, what with the sugar and artificial junk that's in it, but I don't eat them every day and neither should most people. They really are a candy bar with protein and vitamins, not a substitute for real food.

    For reference, my other favorite protein bar varieties in the non-melty category are: Luna Toasted Nuts & Cranberry, Luna Sesame Raisin (now discontinued), Clif Mojo (both varieties, all natural which is nice), ProMax Oatrageous Chocolate Chip PB flavor (this one is all natural and pretty tasty)....more info
  • I suppose if you're just looking for fuel ...
    I suppose if you're just looking for fuel for your body or emergency food to keep in your trunk, then these would be okay. If I'd purchased this box of Balance Bars, I would've brought it back to the store for a refund. The taste was pretty bad, and the consistency was gummy/muddy. It's better if you have it with a full glass of water, although there's a very strong aftertaste. My husband took a bite and spit it out -- the same with my six year old. My two-year-old son, however, seemed to actually like it and will eat a bar as a snack if I broke it up into small pieces. I just couldn't get past the taste. I still have over a box left, which I'll dole out to my son as snacks, but it's defiantly not something I would ever buy or recommend. In fact, if someone told me they were going to buy them, I'd ask if they'd ever eaten them before and if not, I would tell them pick a different product. Big thumbs down on this one!...more info
  • okay :)
    I wouldn't buy these again unless they go on sale again. I got them really cheap on here like 11.50 for the whole box. So i decided what the hell. I bought three boxes of protein bars because I'm currently dieting and always on the go. I also bought luna sunrise bars which i loved!! And clif mojo bars which was my 2nd fave.

    These chocolate raspberry bars are ok. The texture is a little weird, it has a fake chocolate taste, and the raspberry taste is pretty light. But I did appreciate that the raspberry's seemed fresh because of the seeds from them in the bars. They are not horrible but if you're looking for good taste and not just a diet bar, I'd go for luna or clif. ...more info
  • I am in the process of trying to ...
    I am in the process of trying to lose weight, and this seemed a great way to skip lunch but still get all the nutrients I needed. When the Balance Bars arrived, I was surprised to get a whole box, enough for a two-week supply, plus one. My husband and I immediately pulled out that ""plus one"" to give it a taste. The bar looked delectable and smelled wonderful, but that was as far as it went. They are plain awful! The chocolate coating is good, but whatever they have on the inside is sickening. It's not very sweet, but it's the texture that's so bad. It's like chewing wet sawdust. We immediately spit ours out, and the box of 14 is still sitting on my counter. I would definitely not pay money for these. Skip them and go on to Slim Fast, is what I'd tell my friends and family. They definitely need to do some work on this product, not just that flavor....more info

    My children seemed to really like them. They have a slightly different taste than what I expected. They're almost like a Fig Newton chewy. They were very filling and helped us feel that we were no longer hungry. They helped us feel more energetic. My family tried the product and the children seemed to be the most impressed, although the adults also thought that they felt more ""alive""....more info

  • Guy Loves them, Girl Hates them
    Pros:
    -Small
    -Great stats (high in protein and calories relative in size)
    -The Chocolate and Mocha Chip tastes Great
    -No chalky taste

    Cons:
    -Fiance thinks they taste aweful


    Before I bought this product I always thought Balance bars were low in protein and just a womans meal supplement. Well, now they are my main protein bars and eat them all the time between meals when I am hungry.

    I would give these a 5 star, best nutritional/protein bars I have ever tried. No chalky taste, very smooth texture (overly smooth compared to others) however, the fiance hated them. Not sure why, but she could not even eat them, however, she loves the Cliff bar brand....more info

    These bars were excellent! The texture and flavor were great. The ingredients are good for you and you don't have to feel guilty like you do when eating a candy bar. I would recommend this product for a quick, filling, pick-me-up snack. You need to have a beverage with it, however. This was much creamier than other products like this....more info

    I'd never had a Balance Bar before and wasn't sure what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised at the taste. It was chocolatey and wonderful. I think the Balance Bars are great to have for breakfast on the run and to grab a quick snack before or after working out. I would highly recommend the Balance Bars....more info

    I was really excited to try the Balance Bars. I'm always looking for a snack that I can keep in my purse. The Balance Bar was good for the purse because it didn't crumble. The flavor wasn't too bad. I don't usually care for chocolate/fruit combos, but this one was pretty good. This snack could also double as a quick lunch; it was pretty filling. I'll definitely buy this item again....more info

    I'm a college student and I found this bar to be extremely convenient. The day after I received them I woke up ten minutes before class began. I jumped out of bed, grabbed a bar, and raced towards class. The bar was incredible -- it had a sweet peanut flavor that wasn't too sweet. It had a pleasant aftertaste, unlike other bars. The bar was light but satisfying. Usually I end up eating too much and falling asleep in class. Whether it was the nutrition or the ginseng, this product was great for energy. I'd use it again and again....more info
  • Awesome balance bars
    This product is great tasting and healthy at the same time. It is hard to find, but I am grateful for Amazon's subscrition service that allows me to purchase at a reduced amount and have it automatically sent to me on a regular basis. Great product and great service!...more info

    Very tasty, my kids loved them. They're kind of messy though -- my three year old got the other layer of yogurt covering all over himself and everything else he touched. These bars are great if you don't have time in the morning to fix a big breakfast -- just eat one of these and you're good to go 'til lunchtime....more info
  • Most delicious energy bar out there!
    I have tried a lot of energy bars and I have to say, Balance cookie dough is the best I have ever tasted. (I'm not saying all the Balance flavors are as good as this one- I have tried and not liked other Balance bars.) But the cookie dough flavored one is awsome. It is covered in chocolate so it's like eating a chocolate bar, except with a lot more nutritional content! Try this bar if you really want a great tasting energy bar....more info
  • my favorite
    I love this bsar. tastes just like a brownie but healthy. very hard to find in my area. ...more info
  • Mostly satisfied!
    I love these Balance Bars. The honey yogurt peanut flavor is the best I've tried, and they are great with a glass of cold, skim milk for breakfast or a snack. Without the milk, they aren't very filling, it's true, but they are still very tasty and better for you than candy. However, it's also true that since they are made with HFCS they aren't as healthy as some of the other bars available. They probably have a fairly high glycemic index.

    Still, if that's not an issue for you, and you want to soothe a sweet tooth, or find a fairly healthy fast breakfast or snack for on the go, give 'em a try. Btw, some people have complained about the price - here in NYC they go for nearly $2 per bar, making Amazon's prices amazing!...more info

    The Balance Bar has a very good taste with none of the vitamin taste that I sometimes get in these bars. It has all the vitamins, minerals, and even Ginseng for the energy I need. I usually have a bar for breakfast - the calorie count is reasonable and you get your day's supply of vitamins. The consistency is the only thing that some people might not like, as it's a little pasty; but overall, I thought it was excellent....more info
  • My wife and her son love these!
    Great item, but remember it's a meal REPLACEMENT not a meal. Also, don't pay more than 99 cents each for these (that's what they cost every day at Trader Joe's)....more info

    This nutrition bar is really good. I eat low-carb foods five out of seven days a week and this really helped when the urge to have something sweet hit last week. The taste of the berries really came through and the yogurt coating is a nice addition to the flavor. The texture was like a granola bar and it wasn't dry in my mouth like some other low-carb bars I have tried. I was sad to see the last of the bars devoured by my family and will definitely buy this bar and recommend it to friends and family....more info

    We didn't find these to be all that tasty. They had a mealy kind of texture. If you're very very hungry they'd be okay to eat. Perhaps they just weren't suited to our family's taste buds....more info
  • Great Taste
    I got a great deal on those from Amazon. They taste really rich, and chocholatey.They are my all-time favorite. They satisfy me for at least 2-3 hours, and they have a great deal of nutrition in them. Also they are based on the 30/30/40 diet (protien/fat/carbs) respectively, which is the most successful diet there is if followed sensibly. ...more info

    The taste was a little disappointing but I don't like peanuts anyway. The bars were very filling and gave me a little boost. I'd say these are all that they promise, although, they're a little pricey for my wallet. I'd recommend them to anyone who likes peanuts and is looking for a bit of a pick-me-up during the day....more info

    This product is really good. It's filling and has nice flavor. Only problem with it is that it's too dry. Other bad part it is it's expensive. But it's worth trying....more info
  • Let's hear it for Balance Bars
    Almond Fudge is my favorite Balance Bar and keeps me going on the run. I have special needs: dairy and gluten intolerant, and this Balance Bar not only works for me, it tastes good. Believe me, safe food that tastes good and that you can keep in your bag for an emergency is not easy to find!...more info

    I enjoyed the Almond Brownie Balance Bar. The taste was much richer than other nutrition bars I've used previously. They kept well in my pocket and weren't too crumbly or excessively chewy. I used them as an alternative to breakfast several times when I was running late (a normal occurrence). I also brought them along on several day hikes as a quick pick-me-up snack. I would recommend this product, especially if you like rich chocolately tastes....more info
  • Nutrition
    That is what the answer is BALANCE. So many people throughout the United States are not that balanced in their diet or what they eat. They do fast food diets that deprive them of essential nutritents that their body needs. This society wants a fast solution. It is really learning what to eat and at what time of the day. This bar does that it is balanced nutritrion that your body needs. It is about being healthy inside and not just outside....more info
