It's not the best or worst flavor. It tastes basically like peach yogurt with a different texture.

Returned a vacuum I bought in 2017 because it broke but asked the desk if that was ok before I brought it in to return. They said it was fine so I returned it and bought a 3x more expensive so maybe it worked out for them in the end?

I bought a box of the caramel. Will report later.

I'm not a fan of fake peach flavor so I probably won't like it. Thought cookies n cream tasted just like vanilla. Chocolates my favorite so I got that too.

I did this with a carpet vacuum that ate its own cord and caught a small amount of poo poo when I thought it might be 6 months old and not an entire year

These Kirkland protein bars are really growing on me. I don't usually feel like eating breakfast, but I get really hungry around 10-11, and can't usually stop for lunch until 2ish. If you only eat these when you're actually hungry, they're fine. Weird stevia aftertaste, but if you're a diet soda drinker, not super unpalatable. It makes me feel like an astronaut eating space food.

They're worse than almost every other protein bar Costco carries but they're still good when I run out of the rest I bought on sale. I have like 200 of em in the cupboard from January sale.

I saw the Robert Irvine bars, but the man himself scares me a little bit. Might pick them up though, I couldn't remember at the time if you said they were good or not.

Edit: those things are 390 calories. No loving way, I can eat a real meal for that. Maybe next time I'm gearing up for a snowpocolypse or camping trip tho.

Those bars taste good for protein bars, but I agree, it's too much of a compromise. It's really a kind of bad tasting candy bar with added protein, which is fine if that's what you want.

I had those Robert Irvine protein bars before and they taste better than most candy bars to me. Like, I still have a hard time believing them even after seeing the nutrition numerous times.

Yeah that's only taste related. Nthing the Fit Crunch being the best tasting ahead of Clif Builder Mint flavor.

The ones I looked up online said 390. If the ones in Costco are 190,I'll grab em.

The problem is, if they taste too good, the BF will eat them constantly. That's why we have to ration out the Sweet And Salty bars.

Those KS protein bars are a good cheaper alternative to Quest bars. Can't really compare them to other bars unless the alternative is going for low carb as well.

They are not the best tasting, but it's a solid snack if you are cutting carbs.

Cut the mold off, it doesn't go very deep. Some people just wash it off the surface.

I stopped in yesterday and picked up a case each of Vanilla and Caramel since the sale was ending. Had a caramel this morning - like it better than Chocolate.
