I love the flavor, crunch, and freshness of these peanut bars.
They are delicious.
I was surprised at how BIG these bars are. I remember the Munch peanut bars, and Planters peanut bars. The Munch bar is noticeably smaller. These Lance peanut bars are quite big.
Of the three brands of peanut bar that I've eaten, Planters, Munch, and Lance, I rate these as my favorite.
The reason is because of the lower sweetness level than Munch bars. And the saltiness is perfect, because I do not taste salty, but I know it's there enhancing the flavor of the peanuts. Again, the sweetness level is excellent because I don't taste sweet/sugar when I take a bite. The overall flavor is Peanuts with a light sweetness and light saltiness that simply enhances the flavor of the peanuts not trying to overpower the great peanut flavor.
If you like a noticeably sweet/er peanut bar, I think you might prefer the Munch bar as it has a higher sweetness level. I still like Munch bars, but only when I want something sweet that is more nutritious than a full on candy bar.
These Lance peanut bars make for a great tasting and relatively healthy lunch. The size of these bars is big, and one bar has 340 calories. I have eaten only one bar with some tea or coffee for lunch and it's very satisfying and filling, and actually light as I don't feel full and tired like with some lunches with more food.
The only negative, and it is not a major one, the sellers really need to figure out how to ship these bars to customers without all of them being broken in two pieces. I bought one box with 21 bars, and only 1 bar was whole, with about 3 or 4 bars that were broken into 3 pieces, and the rest in 2 pieces. Of course the broken bar does not affect the delicious flavor at all, but it would be nice to be able to heat a whole bar as one piece. :)
In conclusion, if you love, or even like, peanuts, and you want something that will satisfy a sweet tooth yet still be nutritious, then get a box or two of these. You will not be disappointed. YUM!
