These are like the bastard child of clif and nature valley - two little bars about the size of a mini clif per pack. They are extremely cookie-like which is sort of a nice spot to land in; somewhere between the clif blobs and the nature valley bricks. No chemical taste at all which is great. I mean, you couldn't put them on a plate and fool anyone into thinking they were cookies, they are too grainy for that- but they are a pretty pleasant if sort of dry texture. Like maybe you had a hippie mom who made cookies with rice flour and millet and honey and quinoa, you know? That hippie mom would love these things, except of course the part about buying them from "the man."
