Taste
Almond Butter Chocolate Chip – This is very similar to Marc’s original Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip bar, but replaced with almond butter. The almond butter is the dominant flavor as the oatmeal and chocolate chip inclusions enhance the bar to the fit the flavors name. The creaminess and saltiness of the almond butter are exactly like you would spoon it out of a jar. The chocolate chips are a great choice to compliment the already dense almond butter base. The honey sets off the almond butter and enhancers it to another level. This is Marc’s best bar to date.




Texture
The texture of the bars correlates a soft cookie. They are a bit firm on the outside but you can puncture them with your finger. The middle is soft, chewy, and melts in your mouth. I have not tried putting them in a microwave, but I would imagine it would melt the chocolate chips. This is a bar that doesn't need to have anything done to it as the texture is just right and is easy to chew.

Ingredients: Almond Butter, Honey, Oats, MTS Isolate Protein, Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips, Natural Flavors

Cost
$24.99 a Box of 12 bars, which comes out to $2.08/Bar. Given websites do run sales and promotions getting these under $2 would be an easy buy. When you stack them to other bars on the market it is hard to compare them to bars that have a different ingredient profile. Marc takes a lot of pride is using no fake sugars, or fiber sources to construct a whole food bar.

Overall
THE PROS
• Affordably priced at $24.99 for a box of 12 ($2.08 per bar)
• 6 simple whole food ingredients
• Digest easy and don't leave any bloat (like sugar alcohols or artificial sweeteners may do)
• Impressive taste and texture that just melts in your mouth (even out of the wrapper)
• Unique balance ratio of Carbs, Protein and fats
THE CONS
• Some may argue for a higher protein content (15 a touch too low). Around 20g would be better
