looks sort of like one of those old peanut bars made of peanuts and corn syrup but of course has a bunch of other stuff in it like miniature peanut butter chips, pretzel pieces, etc. i should mention its chewy overall, unlike those peanut bars. tastes similar to but better than a payday bar. very shiny, maybe from the glycerin? I'm still not sure that I should be eating glycerin, even if its vegetarian. goes well with a tall drink of water (which I am). The only problem with it is its sort of falling apart, and there are crumbs everywhere. i like the texture except for all the crumbs. one of the reasons I eat granola bars at work is because they involve minimal clean-up. This one fails that test, but it is really tasty and filling. I had a vision of eating this while hiking and having a crowd of little animals following me, feasting on crumbs. It does have a nice peanut-y taste. Certainly the best bar this week.
