Was very pleasantly surprised to find this in my delivery today!
A four image gallery of some other images of the bar (I’m a new user on here so I can’t post more than one image).
My first impressions upon opening and holding the bar is how different it is from the previous jimmyjoy bars I’ve eaten. It’s very thin (images shown below) and as some other reviews have mentioned it’s more greasy and chewy than the previous bars. It’s not greasy greasy though, and actually as long as you eat it holding the bar in the packaging as you’re eating it, and you ensure have some water to wash it down with, I don’t think this will ever actually be a problem.
The taste and texture really caught me off guard. Long story short, it’s amazing! It’s got that crisp that I’ve loved from the other bars (pretty sure that’s the soya protein crisp, but I’m not completely sure). I was surprised at how wonderfully chewy it was, it has the consistency and the taste of a really good flapjack!
There is a strong taste that is quite hard to describe, like a flapjack but a bit more muted in the sweetness and more towards a tiny bit of tang (just my flavour profile). This is to say that it’s not bad and I actually really like it, but I don’t think I could eat more than one of these bars in a day without feeling bad about myself (it’s got that kind of sickly sweet kinda treat vibe to it, same with flapjacks). I could barely finish the bar I had in one go (it’s large and dense so there’s a lot to finish)!. The salt is also quite subtle and I can’t tell how much of it I was tasting compared to the other flavours.
I prefer it over the chocolate twennybar in the same way that I prefer a donut to a bagel (if that makes sense). I like both a lot but I could definitely eat more bagels than donuts before I feel bad about it I’ll definitely be adding a couple to future subscriptions, but definitely not in bulk like I have done with the previous bars!
Thanks for the bar guys!
