@PooltoyWolf Although, if someone was conceived at 5:30ᴀᴍ, I suspected the parents might be awake enough to start the day. They just probably wouldn’t want to. Which, I guess, is what they were trying to get at.
Verb started as a subscription service. I see that they are now on the shelf in my local Kroger. I was a subscriber. The flavors are pretty good, overall. But I don’t know about the ‘less sugar’ thing - I had a cinnamon roll flavor that was pretty sweet - but otherwise good. They probably need to have some sugar to offset the caffeine. I stopped only b/c the most infrequent shipment was a dozen bars a month and I did not eat them that quickly - got tired of postponing shipments and quit. I’ve never had any of these flavors, though…
Sometime after 2012, I noticed that all the non-chocolate, non-peanut health bars basically disappeared. I remember hiking Mt. Whitney with a backpack full of cherry and apricot Clif Bars. Now, I can’t find a single one that isn’t "peanut butter-chocolate or “chocolatey-peanut flavor” or “double chocolate mocha with peanut sprinkles” or “mint chocolate chip” or “chocolate peanut butter cup”, etc… I’m so sick of chocolate/peanut flavor permutations that I get a little pukey just thinking about trying to cram one of these down with no drink.
@Gilliat@Kyeh@natasha_natasha The Orange sorbet is pretty good. I have found that around here Target has the widest selection available. The Chocolate Raspberry Truffle is also very tasty but is slightly ruined by the crunchy raspberry seeds.
Naturally occurring sugars are nowhere near as bad for you as refined sugars. I love Clif bars and they have a lot of great flavours but they also use sugar as an ingredient.
I have simply have grown to hate Chocolate+X and Peanut+X flavors in general. It’s like all the flavor engineers everywhere suddenly just gave up and decided to features these ingredients in 90% of their bars. Even your truffle example contains G-D chocolate!
@burnsgolf This sale is over. But for an active sale, after you hit the BUY button on the product page, in the dialog that comes up, immediately below the “Payment Settings” box there is a clickable link in fine print that will enable you to enter a code (you can only use one per order). When not accepted, you have to “remove” it before you can enter a different one. You can use your VMP discount at SideDeals, MorningSave, or CaseMates, but not on Meh items; other codes might be valid though.
