I have now tried all 3 of these Defender Meal Bars from Core and I really enjoyed all of them! I actually ate the 3rd one long ago and took notes for a later post. The last one I tried was the Walnut Banana flavor. Many of you know I HATE Bananas and I was sort of afraid to try this one! BUT...keep reading...this was DARNED TASTY! I didn't think this one was in-tact as much as the other two were - it fell apart a little easier than the others did. I'm not saying that is good, bad, or indifferent, it's just something I noticed. The dates and walnuts offset the banana so it wasn't 'all about the banana'...and that I appreciated. The spices were similar to Banana Nut Bread...subtle and not overpowering. It had a slight raisin after-taste that was nice and sweet! The texture was a bit flakier and grainer than the others but it all worked out really well and the product was top-notch! I still can't believe how filling these are! They really ARE a full meal! WOW!
Another thing I wanted to share with you in this post is my NEW LOVE for Antho. This will be the first of a few product reviews for them! I LOVE this company!
