Amazon Fine Food Reviews

340831340831B003MP16A8A1NGRUBUH56TNFT. Resin2211317513600Delicious Bars but STALE from Amazon!I ordered a whole box for work and was so disappointed when I realized they were all STALE! I usually buy these at Trader Joe's or Whole Foods but the price was better on Amazon so I ordered them. Unfortunately, they were stale and old. So, no more buying these delicious bars from Amazon. I would rather pay more but get a fresh product. Why doesn't Amazon do something about this? I am not the first person to have had this experience. I didn't bother reading the reviews before I ordered them on my iPhone. Oh well. I hope they fix this or at least that others will read this!
340832340832B003MP16A8AMWT1TL8J4WEQJen Gosnell "review junkie"2241289606400Good crunch and not too sweetI like these bars because you get the crunch and flavor of a nut bar without too much sugar. They are peanut-y, without the weird texture and gross sweetness of other peanut butter protein bars. In my mind these are positives.

Be prepared that there is not likely to be a large amount of chocolate coating on any given bar. The first time I bought one, I was disappointed when I opened it and compared the appearance of the actual bar to the picture on the packaging. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the taste so I decided to buy more.

They can sometimes leave an impression of being a bit dry or gritty, which I suppose is due to the soy crisps or tapioca starch, or maybe just how dry my own mouth happens to be that day. I simply make sure I have a glass of water available when I plan to eat one of these.

340836340836B003MP16A8A3E4J6KF7T9IUYLyle R. Creamer1131318377600Satisfactory but very little chocolateThese bars are 'crunchy' with a strong peanut flavor. There is just a hint of chocolate on the outside edge. If you are hoping for a good chocolate bar with a few nuts you will be disappointed but if you want a crunchy peanut bar you will probably be delighted.
340837340837B003MP16A8A2BGJZECBWZT10T. Chen1151298592000great snacksThese bars have less sugar content compared to most nutrition bars out there, yet they are tasty. I eat them in between meals or after a workout as snacks.
340838340838B003MP16A8A33IYH19QJXA4ZE. A. Quam "booknut Betty"1151282608000I bought this as a gift...for my daughter and she loved the bars. Nice and crunchy with a great nutty, chocolate taste. She shared them with friends on a trip and had to hide them so they wouldn't all be eaten. I have given the friends the manufacturer name and steered them to Amazon to order them
340839340839B003MP16A8A1RRMZKOMZ2M7JSue Katz "Honey Bee"1141280361600Decent but heavy on the peanutsThese are decent ... and MUCH better than the other think thin bars. However, the #1 ingredient is PEANUTs. I'm not sure that "mixed nuts" is apt but it's tasty for being so low in sodium (90mg) & sugars (3g) and gluten-free. I'd buy them again but would wait until they're on sale.

340840340840B003MP16A8A1HTIPIY81G66JBecky A. Behrmann0041350604800Great SnackI eat these high protein bars about 4 hours into my 12-hr nursing shift. They keep my blood sugar from plummeting, and they feel like a real indulgence because they are so good.
340841340841B003MP16A8A3CJUNUDMNX5SLMary Moone0051349222400DeliciousThe Think Thin products are well made and gluten free. The Chocolate Dipped Mixed Nuts is particularly delicious. It's got a great combo of sweet and salt and is very chocolatey. Easy grab-n-go breakfast.
340842340842B003MP16A8AIQ7S0ND2NJ7TA. T. Griffith0041348790400Great protien/snack barI really like this protein/snack bar. I worked to find a bar that is gluten-free, dairy-free and low in sugar. This line of bars is the closest I have found that fits my criteria. They taste good and are a quick on the go snack that tides me over until I can get a meal.
340843340843B003MP16A8A188FL1P49QW2STerry "tleah444"0051346803200Great combination healthy, gluten free and yummy!These have become a family favorite and always have them on hand. No one even knows they are healthy and gluten free except me, they are so good and low in sugar too.
340844340844B003MP16A8A1N10XYZN0ASA7Quilting Nana0041344384000Healthy snackThis low sugar, high fiber tasty treat tastes more like a candy bar than a healthy bar. Great for those of use that love nuts. Not non-fat, however the fat is does have is a more "healthy" type found in nuts. Gluten free if that is important to you.
340845340845B003MP16A8A1HNBS6ICM87LSCustomer0051341619200Love these...My favorite, all around snack bar. Total love that it's not overly sweet. I'll never get tired of these, they're great with a smoothie as a meal, and I eat them as a snack at least a few times a week. The best tasting bar I've had, and I've had quite a few.
340846340846B003MP16A8A1C0GW1Q0KMWIMsoo jin chung0041341187200Little too sweetI was looking for a nut bar made with 100% wohle nuts for a meal replacement.
Saw Think Thin here and tried it.
This bar tastes good. Whole nuts and soy crisps and everything.
But for a meal replacement, it's too sweet.
It says to be 70% less sugared than leading fruit and nut bars. I wonder which bar it's reffering to? It's still pretty sweet. I'd call it sweet snack than meal replacement.
When I have less than satisfying meal, I would eat it for desert. For me it's canndy bar replacement.
I feel guilty eating it instead of a meal.

Everything is laced with so much sugar now days, when I eat something for health, I want no sugar or very little sugar in it.
This bar would taste even better if it were less sweet.
340847340847B003MP16A8A77DN61BDRO72Barbara McCracken0051340496000Crunchy break!Whenever you need a crunchy break, this is the bar to try. A little sweet and salty hits the spot!
340848340848B003MP16A8AM80T4HEKN1Z4F. Yang0011340150400Stale nutsI read a review, commenting that the nuts were stale. I thought it might have been an one-time deal. The nuts in my bars are stale as well. The expiration is Feb 2013. Even though grocery cannot be returned on Amazon, customer service refunded me without asking for return. (When I checked at the store, where the bars have been fresh, the expiration is April 2013.)
340849340849B003MP16A8A2UX5R9EFQ6TKKRI book worm0051338249600Delicious and nutritious on the go snackTastes great and is packed with protein. A nutritious snack that stops hunger. Chocolate Dipped Mixed Nuts is my favorite thinkThin flavor.
340850340850B003MP16A8A2N27BQPTBVVHEDanielle0051336348800Good healthy snackThis a great healthy snack.
Even me that was diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome, has
gluten intolerance and all sorts of food limitation is enjoying
this snack with no problem.
I'm trying the chocolate ones next... let's see !
340851340851B003MP16A8A2AOD7254MCKSHtravel-weary0051327017600they love theseTwo member of my family have celiac sprue and so we have been plunged into gluten free living over the past few years. Although these are not organic, my husband and daughter do like these to have a bit of variety in their lives. There are only so many Larabars one can eat in a lifetime. If you are looking for a good organic snack type product and have not yet discovered Orgain drinks, run there and order them immediately.

I purchased several varieties of the Thinkthins when they were on promotion. Best price I have found.
340852340852B003MP16A8A1203KL8D5AHSRalfred0051326412800Always trying to lose weightThese bars taste wonderful and are not full of sugar. I am a repeat customer. I haven't lost weight, but I don't see any gain when I eat one bar a day.
340853340853B003MP16A8A3H7NPNDMGLOU4Kerri Elders0031322697600I Like These Bars But They Don't Like MeI love the taste and texture of these bars; they're sweet, but not overly-sweet and have a satisfying, nutty crunch and just enough chocolate to make them interesting.

UNFORTUNATELY, I apparently have a severe negative reaction to the artificial sweetener, maltitol, used in the chocolate coating. About an hour and a half after eating one, my abdomen puffs up like a balloon filled with air, resulting in a very sore, achy feeling tummy and (excuse me) painful gas that lasts about three hours.

Many people have this reaction to maltitol; if you're one of them, you'll have to learn, as I painfully have, to avoid anything that contains this sweetener.

Hopefully, the company can make some maltitol-free versions of these bars in the future.
340854340854B003MP16A8AYB15CBIKIR56Jamie Greiver0051322524800great meal supplementThese are my favorite of all protein bars. They aren't overly sweet, taste delicious, totally fill me up and are gluten free. I usually eat one for breakfast and am not hungry for 3-4 hours afterwards. Lots of protein too.
340855340855B003MP16A8AV4JIF8QALQARH. M. Holmes0041320105600Crunchy, chewy, salty & sweet...yummy!Tastes like a Payday candy bar but with protein and a genuinely nutty taste. These bars are great for on-the-go, in your handbag, purse, or backpack and actually fill you up with a bottle of water and an apple for a healthy meal. I don't recommend refrigeration, as they are already chewy and don't need to be hard on top of that. I recommend these bars for athletes, students, moms, and kids alike. They taste great and are very satisfying.
340856340856B003MP16A8AG9WWT7RE2VFDChelseadog0051320019200Think Thin Bars RockThese are my favorite snack. High in protein, low in sugar and fat. Great for anytime and they taste great.
340857340857B003MP16A8A1VB7CZP4D775NMARJORIE FUHRMANN0051319760000The best bar Think Thin makesI have always longed for a real crunch in the Think Thin bars. Until this bar came along this sensation was lacking. This bar combines a darker chocolate with nuts in every bite. It's very tasty, and with the crunch, it satisfies one's chewing crave. I have bought this product by the bar in Trader Joe's but when I saw that Amazon sold it by the box, I jumped at the price point. I haven't had any of the shipping problems that other reviewers have mentioned. (Mine are shipped to Maryland.) I will definitely order these bars again. I use these bars are a meal replacement, especially at breakfast.
340858340858B003MP16A8A3KVY701T49MKWMerissa0041319760000YumThe chocolate was a little crumbly, but the taste is very good. My hubby has celiacs, and it is gluten free, so it is an excellent bar to stock in the pantry for whenever he doesn't have time for breakfast.
340859340859B003MP16A8A4E1R7XICZRXHK. Tien0051318809600Perfect Snack, Taste GreatThe bar taste much better than many other bars I have tasted such as Odwalla and such. The chocolate is kept to a minimum to the bottom layer, and the nuts used in this product are a good mix with the chocolate. Overall, a very good bar and I would definitely subscribe on this item monthly.
340860340860B003MP16A8ALOF9A2GXGYVYLaura "Discount Dame"0021318377600Think YumThis bar is the best tasting low sugar bar I've had.
I am however concerned about the Maltitol in the bar.
This substance is used as a sweetener and I think it's synthetic.
I've also read that it helps Aluminum cross the blood brain
barrier, yikes! I really love these bars but I'm going to look
for something else, because of the Maltitol. Honestly, I think
I'm just going to have to make my own.
