I ordered a couple of flavors here and will report back if they're decent.

As someone who avoids gluten, I see these may be helpful to me in maintenance.
Well, since I already ordered them, I went ahead and tried these bars despite Lisa's good advice on the sugars. I had the chocolate caramel bar last night and it was really, really, REALLY good. Crunchy and chocolaty with real peanuts. Very satisfying. Didn't have that fake sweetener aftertaste, to which I'm usually pretty sensitive.

This flavor also didn't have the agave syrup or evaporated cane juice. Just looked at the ingredients and looks like they use malitol and sucralose, as well as some sugar and corn syrup (bad, I know) but the quantities can't be huge when you look at the carb breakdown.
