so I did not got any samples … but a friend supplied me with the new chocolate and vanilla Plenny Bars from his last order and I tested them rigorously next to each other in alternate order.
Here my impression:
*) The Twenny Bars were more juicy and less hard to chew, in my case I like it harder as I eat them to my coffee breaks.
*) The chocolate Plenny Bar is a huge improvement in texture (harder, crisps) and taste, I can taste cocoa beans and not only chocolate powder. really awesome!
*) The vanilla Plenny Bar is much less intense (than all the other bars) and a bit too hard to chew (less crispy than the chocolate one), it takes some chewing to get the flavor out. But all in all not worse than the Twenny Bar.
*) Compared to the Caramel Sea Salt I like the chocolate as much if not a bit more. The vanilla is just not intense enough in comparison to keep up being eaten next to the others, but in it self also good.
I am happy to see Jimmy Joy going completely vegan! I am not eating 100% vegan myself, but I try to reduce eating animal products to a minimum and choose consciously what I buy if I do.
Only thing I don’t like about Jimmy Joy is the Ready to Drink products. A lot of unnecessary water being transported. Not sure how that is working with being sustainable.
So thanks for the new Plenny Bars! I will order soon
