Today my Jake bar arrived. Exicted as I am about the shakes, I was very curius about the bars. When opening the bar, the smell of a bit chemical bananna's fill the room. Quite strong smell. The bar looks a bit like peanutbutter with oatmeal flakes in it. The flakes give the bar a bit of grainy taste, and the rest of the bar is a bit sandy. The cinnemon give quite a strong taste in the back of my throat, I didn't like that very much. But the banana taste was good, not so strong as the smell suggested. But the bar is not really my kind of taste.
I couldn't eat the bar at once and needed a lot of water to flush it away, because it is pretty dry. But when it was gone I got the pleasent, well-known feeling of satisfaction I also get from the shakes. So that part I really liked
For me the bar is not something I will buy again, the shakes suited me better. Maybe someday there will be a shake with 350 calories.
After a few days use, with every morning a bar, I'm pleasent surprised. The bar is stil a bit dry, But now I know, I juist make sure I have a tall glass of water with me when I eat the bar. I thought I wouldn't like the bar, espacially after my frist one. But I guess I was wrong... The bar gives a very pleasent feeling of satisfaction and keeps me going for hours!
