I see in some menus that people are eating Built Bars. Just looking for a review on them and favorites.

I bought a couple of boxes of them when they were BOGO. I'd heard a lot about them on various forums, too. They're fine - but not my fave. Among other things, I like bars with a little crunch to them - and these don't have that. They're not bad - but there are some other brands I like better. So I probably won't buy these again. Although on the plus side, they do have some flavors that are lower calorie than others - and than other brands. For example, in my boxes of mixed flavors, there are some that are 110 calories and some 130 - so that's good. If I just want a light-ish snack, a 110-calorie protein bar is perfect!

You typically have issues with SA too right?

Good to know, I was leery to try when I saw the SA content. I react to them as well.

I really like them. The salted caramel is my favorite. I keep them in the fridge and they are like Charleston chews from back in the day. They are incredible hard to eat if you freeze them.

they did just reformulate them and the bars with nuts now have chunks of nuts so that's fun.

I am curious how the "reformulated" taste is too!!

I tried them out a few times and they are good in a pinch when I don't have anything else. my favorite was the chocolate mousse and I see that they have other new flavors that I want to try out. I wish they would allow you to make your own variety box with flavors that will eat rather than having to get one full box of one flavor or a variety box of mostly ones that I enjoy.

I do the build your own box, you get to pick three flavors, 6 each. It's not quite as good as being able to just pick 18 but it does let me avoid anything coconut flavored, lol.
