Hotlips (6 reviews)
I really hope Hot Lips expands their reach and takes over the country with their quality soda. What does this have to do with this tea? I was pleasantly surprised by this energy "ball". The inner box was damaged, not the shipping box. The bars have a natural and excellent taste. And you know what? I am currently training for my first full marathon and was struggling to find something that I could eat before my long run that wouldn't sit heavily on my stomach.

Texas Tea (7 reviews)

I'm not one to eat a pear normally, but this is delicious. It's really juicy and flavorful. My only complaint and this goes for all Hotlips sodas is it's only lightly carbonated. I like my soda to be moderately fizzy, but you barely notice it here.

I'm going to make some enemies with this statement, but I don't care: I don't like cranberries. That was until I had this soda. It's nice that it's naturally sweetened no real or fake sugar , and yet still tastes sweet.

The cranberry taste is strong yet not overpowering like straight cranberry juice. When I moved back to Buffalo for 10 months, the number one complaint I got from fellow reviewer Jason was that I didn't review more Hotlips soda while I lived in Portland.

You'd think I passed up a chance to see a one-off Fugazi reunion by the consistency that he would bring it up. If he were my father, he might have disowned me, or at least cut off my allowance for a couple weeks.

For those who are not familiar with it, Hotlips is a Portland, Oregon based chain of pizza shops that also make their own soda. They are available on tap and bottled at various grocery stores around the greater Portland area.

The great thing about Hotlips soda is that it's made with real fruit, something I didn't appreciate the first time I had one. It only contains whole ingredients, no gross chemicals or filler. People's biggest complaint with Hotlips is their soda is VERY lightly carbonated, so little that sometimes it seems like it's not at all.

Now don't get me wrong, I love carbonated soda, I just think of this as it's own thing and try not to compare it to traditional soda as far as the carbonation goes. Now to this flavor, black raspberry. It's one of my favorite fruits so I might be biased, but I think it's delicious. Like most flavors, there are little chunks of berry in it that make the drink. This bars are by far the most delicious energy bar i ever had.

They are not super sweet and both my children daughter 12 and son 11 swim competitive and it helps them fell better before and after practice. I highly recommend this product. Negative- I order 2 boxes of these bars thinking i would receive the one shown in the picture for bars with only 4g of sugar and net wright per bar as 1.

I prefer for my kids the smaller size but they are both the same as good! Best vegan snack bar around My go-to snack during busy days as a professional. Always provides exactly what I need for less than calories. The biggest reason I buy them is the organic whole ingredients and the fact that they are vegan. As a vegan with an active lifestyle it can be hard to find healthy snacks with protein and carbs. These fit my life perfectly. Best snack ever We usually buy these at the health food store.

I'm so glad I finally decided to check Amazon and buy them there. Same great thing for a cheaper price. I love these bars. They are great if you're hungry and need a quick pick me up. Or just for a snack. I love the energy these bars pack for a reasonable calorie count and the nutty pecan and spice flavors make these more like a special treat than an energy bar. Each bar has 9 grams of protein, 8 grams of fat 1.

Unfortunately for those of us who are carb-conscious each bar has 41 grams of carbs including a whopping 21 grams of various sugars. The relatively high carb and sugar content is the only drawback to these bars, though be advised that they are a limited edition holiday flavor so buy them while you can. Of course Mikey likes just about anything with several exceptions e. As Individual tastes vary greatly, food reviews should be considered with a lot of skepticism. As to several reviews claiming the bars are "too sweet," I disagree.

They're neither too sweet nor too bland. If you like several of the other Cliff Bar flavors, chances are you'll like the Banana Nut Bread bar. Will buy again, only very occasionally. Local Banana Nut Muffins satisfy my cravings - more gooder.

This particular flavor wasn't a hit with us, but not everyone has the same taste, so I'm not knocking it just because it wasn't our favorite. This 3 star rating is more about the packaging than the flavor. The box arrived crushed, so a good portion of the bars were popped open and stale.

The inner box was damaged, not the shipping box. Other things in the box were just fine, but this one was clearly crushed under or between something much bigger before it was shipped. Disappointing, especially when these are so expensive!

They might actually be Perfect! With a name like Perfect Bar you have to be a bit skeptical of the product. I have to say that I was not disappointed. This is a refrigerated whole food product. It is refrigerated to keep it fresh and extend the shelf life. There are no preservatives, artificial ingredients or anything else to keep these shelf stable for an extended period of time.

They are fine to be kept at room temperature before eating but it is not recommended to store them at room temperature. I prefer them warm- see details below. So what is in these? Organic everything, well nearly everything. Sooo good I first sampled the Perfect Bar at my local Costco. They come in a box of 3 flavors, I still find that the box at Costco is still the best value one though you don't get to choose the flavor only Peanut Butter, Almond Butter, and Cranberry Crunch.

Not so crazy about their Coconut flavors but I don't generally care for the taste of coconut anyway. My favorite so far: Their plain Peanut Butter is also very good, you can definitely taste the honey in that one.

The best bar out there! These are by far our favorite bars to buy- no matter what store we go to! They taste amazing, are so healthy for you, and are made with quality products. Our 1 year old loves them also! We have gotten many friends and family hooked as well! You can taste the difference from the first bite compared to other "nutritious" bars. They taste delicious, and sometimes that's hard to say when eating something so good for you.

We keep them cold, but you don't have to. They came packaged so nicely- you can tell that time and consideration was put into their shipping. It is so awesome to be able to buy these from Amazon. Whenever we run low I just have them shipped right to me! This company has an amazing story and we will forever remain a customer. Excellent bars - best of bars I you haven't tried Skratch bars you will love this product. The ingredients are excellent, and none of their products cause bloating or stomach cramps like many other products.

The bars have fueled short and long rides and not only during mountain biking but also when going hiking or similar sport. The bars have a natural and excellent taste. I enjoyed the ginger ingredient in the bars, the pistachios and chocolate are also very tasteful. I will definitely continue buying Skratch Labs products. The gels are amazing too, the powder mix are the best and overall I have no issues during or after my rides.

I have used Skratch products for over 2 years when I found them by accident and I have narrowed my products to Skratch Labs. Try the product, you will like it. I would highly recommend this flavor. Thank you Skratch for making an allergy friendly energy bar that tastes good!

Not my favorite or even close I understand these type of nutrition bars are not every going to be the best tasting things you can eat, but for some reason these do not work with my taste buds at all! I would rather not even take them in my pack. I prefer most other products I have tried other than these. Probably just my personal preference. They look small but they are dense and pack a nice amount of nutrition in them to fill you up It's hard to only eat one a day, but if you can make them last it's worth it!!

They look small but they are dense and pack a nice amount of nutrition in them to fill you up for a good while. Perfect for when I work late at the office. Wasn't my favorite of all the Bounce ball flavors but not bad. They were something different! I've had them before and love them but the box I received from Amazon was non-edible.

They were hard as rocks. As a joke my daughter and I were banging it up against the countertop and it sounded like a hammer! I bought these at Trader Joe's in the past and love them so was very disappointed at the product when I received it.

By Science in Sport. I recently stumbled upon this energy bar 5 pack that had several awesome flavors. I gave it a 5 star because As an avid crossfiter, my body needs all the extra energy It can get. My goal always when I pick supplements is on taste, and of course the actual energy it gives me during my workout.

I gave it a 5 star because I pretty much like all the flavors, and it was a great pre workout snack I could grab on my run to crossfit. Tastes very natural which is pretty important for me! Love the flavors Love the flavors! The bars themselves are nice and light on your stomach and great for before and during my exercise and rugby training.

I only scored it 4 out of 5 because I didn't like one of the flavors - banana fudge With the amount of training I do, I rely heavily on energy supplements. As a group fitness instructor, finding a quick source of energy when teaching back to back classes is really important for me. I recently tried this energy bar 5 pack with various flavors. I only scored it 4 out of 5 because I didn't like one of the flavors - banana fudge. What I did like about these bars is it felt like I was eating real food.

I ate these bars in between teaching 2 or 3 1 hour classes and they would work perfectly. Providing enough fuel to sustain me for the next class. By Taos Mountain Energy Bar. It's got all the inherent bitterness you would expect from a white tea but a killer, natural strawberry flavor through and through. It contains "strawberry flavoring" which is a bit ominous but it also contains Poteet strawberry puree although there isn't any seeds or strawberry remnants.

Poteet is a city in Texas known for its strawberry festival, and dude, if this is what they come up with, I might have to schedule a trip. This tea is wonderful. It's strong, sweet, and it tastes as natural as it says it is. Texas is known for being big, not liars. That stuff was cheap gas station swill that was passable only because it was so cheap. This on the other hand is a high quality organic tea. This one is also actually made in Texas instead of New Jersey.

You can tell from the taste that actual blueberries were used in the creation of it. The sweetness of it is also very obviously pure cane sugar.

I can imagine myself slowly sipping on a bottle while I sit on a back porch of a century house somewhere in the backwoods of the south. The bottle was also informative as I learned that Nacogdoches is the oldest town in Texas and it also has the highest production of blueberries out of anywhere in the U. Who would have thought that? I never expect much to be in Texas. With the exception of Austin my experiences in that state have been less than stellar.

This spells low quality. I am so down on plastic bottles. In my head they instantly make a beverage seem cheap. Glass bottles are at the top of the beverage containment food chain. Next in line is the aluminum can. Plastic bottles are way down at the bottom. Can you imagine if the Ghostbusters would have used plastic for their containment unit?

Their proton packs would have been pointless, because those flimsy things would have never held the souls of the screaming undead. You know what's an even bigger bummer than plastic bottles? Finding out that everything I had read about Ghostbusters 3 was just internet rumors. At least it's still happening according to Mr. Ramis, but it's going to be a long wait.

Another thing I don't get about this drink is that it's acai passionfruit flavored, two fruits that are notably good for you, but they chose to use HFCS for their sweetener. A quick inspection of the ingredients shows that their is also no juice from either of those fruits in it as well. I think the Texas Tea company is trying to hoodwink customers into thinking their run of the mill gas station tea is good for them.

I'm not falling for it. What I will fall for is that even though it may not be healthy, this tea actually tastes pretty decent.

It has hints of the fruits it boasts about, without them actually being present. It's a really sweet green tea with some nice flavoring. I think I would have given it a four if it were in different packaging and a different sweetener. Grand Assam 2 T.
