Hm, "The Whole Nutrition Bar for Women (TM)" Aww, man, this is a bar for girls! How'd I wander off with this? So far, it has a nutty "hippie" texture, and a reasonably bland taste. It definitely conjures "health food store" in its flavor and texture. Still, there's something to be said for "neutral" which this certainly is. The bar has lots of crispy things in it, and none of the flavors are overpowering. There are very few cranberries, but they are a nice compliment to the extremely neutral flavor. I'm not sure I ever realized that women would be into something so bland, maybe that's where I've gone wrong all these years. I just have too much flavor! Girl you know its true.
