I think it’s alright. It doesn’t taste all that much vanilla, but it’s not bad. I’ve seen others having thoughts about the “dryness” but, I don’t think the dry-ness is a problem.

Also, it’s very saturating (is that the correct word in english? :joy:). I can probably drink 3+ plenny drinks without a problem in one go (so at least 1200 kcal; those taste so good I can drink until I explode, though…), and 1000 kcal with plenny shake is also no problem if I’m hungry. But it feels like it’d be WAY harder to eat 1000+ kcal in bar-form.

I’ll probably buy some bars in the future. It most likely won’t replace Plenny Shake as the #1 nutrition-source, but I can see some situations where a bar would be preferable.

Of course, my opinion of it would probably change if I started living exclusively on bars for a week or two. That’s probably not going to happen, though. It’d take too much time compared to drinking :joy:

Edit: My father (which I don’t think have tried any JJ-products before) tried it, and he liked it very much. He liked the taste and that it wasn’t so sweet

Thanks for sharing your feedback Sigmund! And for sharing it with your father :blush:

We just ate ours (vanilla v9):

Girlfriend:
When it comes to nutrional value I am a bit disappointed since the carbohydrates are down but the sugars are increased in the new bar, and there is quite a lot less fibre in it. When it comes to taste, the previous vanilla bar was more creamy. The new bar is harder to chew, despite the fact that there is more fat in it. However, the vanilla flavor itself is much richer in this new bar. So, I definitely think that when it comes to the flavor itself, the new bar is an improvement.

Me:
I like the new taste and crunchiness :D. Did not really like the previous vanilla bar, but I could see myself eating this one daily. Also like the new shape!

I tried the vanilla today and I liked it a lot better than the chocolate one :slight_smile: It was not as dry. I’d probably order some to take with me when I’m out and about.

I have just tried the Plennybar Vanilla v9 and sadly I wasn’t that excited by it. It just tasted like a crispy oaty flapjack with virtually no vanilla flavour. I think it needs something to make it more exciting to eat. Thanks for sending me one though. Sorry my feedback couldn’t be more positive.

I see fluroride has been excluded from this product. I think this is the correct decision. Do you intend to replace the Twennybar with the Plennybar? If you are going to sell both products, are you going to remove fluroride from the Twennybar?

Today I tried for the first time Twenny Bar Vanilla (OLD) and Plenny Bar Vanilla (NEW).

Taste:
Both the old bar and the new tasted similar. didn’t find much difference there which isn’t a bad thing. They didn’t taste very sweet but were far from being bland. Overall very pleasant and I have no complaint for the taste.

Texture:
Here is where the first improvement comes into play. The old plenny bars had a texture that almost gave you a slight crunch. The new Plenny Bar has a very noticeable crunch in every bite which was very satisfying to eat. They were also more firm than the old bars, which is nice for the initial bite and chewing, I didn’t find them to be dry in any way.

Shape:
I noticed that the shape of the old and new bars differ a bit. The old bars being taller and fatter with the new bars being flatter and wider. This is a nice change as they are easier to take smaller bites out of for those that want to eat them at a slower pace.

Nutrition:
I see now that the new Plenny bars are almost identical to Plenny Shake 2.1 in terms of vitamin/mineral quantities, compared to the old Twenny Bars that were a bit out dated. This is excellent as I was put off in the past ordering Twenny bars as the Shakes were way ahead in terms of optimal nutrition.

Overall I would say the changes have been all positive.

Questions:

I have some questions regarding the new Plenny Bars;

  1. I noticed my bar was v9 and seeing Joey’s replies on here I can see they are currently on v11 in testing. Would you guys be able to share any major or noticeable changes you are making to the bars? Would love to see a change-log of sorts.

  2. Is the recipe going to be updated every now and again after they are launched? e.g. altering their vitamin/mineral quantities/sources as your research progresses.

  3. Will they be the same price as the current Twenny Bars or are they going to have their own price? I would imagine it would be slightly higher if it is going to be different.

Many thanks for the sample.

The vanilla bar is perfect and I am in love. The chewiness and crunchiness are very acceptable, so the bar feels like a substantial amount of food. And the taste is great! It has a very obvious vanilla identity, while not being too forced or too sweet. It’s right in the sweet spot (pardon the pun) and I can’t think of any way to improve it. Great job!
