@squareorganics Chocolate Coated Cherry
210cals
9f/23c/12p
USDA certified organic, non GMO, and gluten free. Just as I suspected this smells similar to a chocolate covered cherry! Bar has a nice Chocolate coating, with a chocolate cherry filling. Very easy to bite threw and chew. I believe I even saw pieces of cherry in the filling as well. The bar starts off very nice but it tends to turn slightly dry and grainy the more you chew. Also has a bit of a bitter bite which I’m assuming is coming from the dark chocolate. I do enjoy the ratio of sweetness they use there. Just enough to give flavor, but not so much to overpower you. I also like the simplicity of their labeling and ingredient list. They are definitely capitalizing on less is more. I would say there needs to just a slight more cherry presence as well. Macros for me are not the best, but if your looking for a lower protein bar then this is a solid pick up.

@squareorganics Chocolate Mint
210cal / 9f / 23c / 12p
First off this smells killer, just like a peppermint patty! Solid square bar with a chocolate coating and a mushier nougat . Very soft texture with a bit of crunch thrown in there. I felt the filling was just slightly grainy, but the crunch they had was very fitting. Mint to chocolate ratio is pretty spot on, maybe just a bit more on the mint, but not to overpowering but does linger in the mouth for awhile. Pretty macro dense at 48g bar. If you don’t like a load of protein in your bars then these are up your alley. These are certified organic, and gluten free which I know a lot of people look for so that’s a plus. I’m a big fan of mint, and usually mint bars are terrible, this one wasn’t half bad. Not my favorite, but not my least favorite either. With their texture I’m excited for the PB, and the almond. They also were nice enough to send me a hand written note which I take into high regard. Every sale I ship out I make sure to hand write a thank you as I believe that shows some class .

@squareorganics chocolate peanut butter bar.
230 cal / 11f / 21c / 13p
First off, glorious chocolate and peanut butter aroma when opening. First bite and I am pleased. Nice dark, chocolate bite then a peanut butter filling with almond pieces for a nice texture appeal then finished with just a bit of saltiness which I really quite liked. I feel protein bars are afraid to add salt to flavors in worries health nuts will shy away. Well, I’m team sodium so I say add the salt.These also come in clutch in you need a decent calorie bar but don’t want to give up a ton of protein. Worth mentioning that these bars all have very simple easy,to read ingredient list.
So far this is easily my favorite by @squareorganics . All organic, gluten free, and non gmo. Also in support of a non profit fighting human trafficking.

@squareorganics chocolate almond spice.
220cal / 10f / 22c / 12p
Nice chocolate coating as usual with the square bars. I do enjoy the breaking of the chocolate layer when you bite into it. Has a nice bit of sweetness with the chocolate and a chewy filling that just kinda disappears the more you chew. Almonds scattered throughout to give a bit of a texture offset from the soft filling. Just enough of the almond so you know it’s there. The more I ate this the more I enjoyed it. I don’t know why I waited to this bar to heat up but I’m glad it did. Melted in my mouth, but it wasted delicious.
Macros aren’t the greatest, but the bar uses minimal ingredients, all organic, gluten free, and gmo free. Also isn’t a protein killer for me as I love to eat MEAT protein.

Chocolate coated crunch
Nice chocolate coating as they all have that in common. Rice Krispys throughout the bar which help to give it some texture appeal but they are a bit soft. Overall sweetness of the bar isn’t overpowering as you get a bite of bite from the dark chocolate. I would be curious to taste this bar with some sweeter chocolate.

Squarebar Organic Protein Bar Cocoa Crunch, 1.7-ounce Bars (Pack of 12)
Chocolate coated coconut
Again similar chocolate coating. Noticeable coconut aroma. Very smooth and soft filling. Not a ton of texture here,just at the end you get yourself that coconut texture. Now I am not a coconut fan so I’m slightly biased but it isn’t extremely overpowering. You get chocolate at first then the more you chew the more coconut it becomes.
I also feel warming these bars up slightly helps improve flavor.
