The following product doesn't need a silly blog ole blog pimpin' - because it's made by, well The Big Ross/Abbott Pharma Company who makes stinky baby formulas, Ensure, the billionty cans of Glucerna I have sitting in the cabinet and everything you could possibly need to sustain you in times of non-health.
They have dollahs and advertisin' - but - I liked this bar That Much that I had to share! The EAS AdvantEdge Carb Control Double Chocolate Crisp Protein Bar. Let me show you.
It's comprised of pretty much ALL CRISPY CHOCOLATE NUGGETS with some other protein-y parts, dipped in chocolate. It got a chewy texture with a ton of crunch and lots of deep chocolate taste. The nuggets? I've said this before - like about the Atkins Caramel Advantage Bars internal pieces - the remind me of the chocolate bits of a Carvel Ice Cream Cake. *SWOON, FAINT*
I wasn't too overwhelmed with sappy sweetness, which is a good thing, considering, too - these have LESS THAN one gram of sugar.

This is the first EAS bar I have tried that I loved. I jumped up and down when I bit into the first one, and told my husband, "This is a keeper, this is a keeper, I have to review this one." (I'm an odd duck.) He loves them too, in fact out of the box I bought last Friday, he ate them all except for the two I had, and this one in the photo - which now has his germs on it. :/
