Initial Thoughts After One Bar
As one may expect from what appears to be an Outright Bar knockoff from the outside, the actual bar looks exactly like what I remember from the few Outright Bars I previously had (link to my Outright Bar review on this site: DF - Late To The Party Outright Bar Review)
The only difference I notice between the two bars is the Outright Bars seemed to be a little oily on the outside while the Authentic Bars are not. Weight wise, this bar is supposed to be 60g and weighed in at 64g.
Texture and softness seem to be pretty much the same as what I remember from an Outright Bar. If anything, the Authentic Bar might be a tad bit firmer and less crumbly but nothing close to a Quest or One Bar.
Cracking it open:
Plenty of chocolate chips to see when splitting it in half.
When it comes to taste, my main complaint about Outright Bars was that the ratio of flavor was 80/20 or 90/10 peanut butter/almond butter to the secondary flavor profile. This bar was much closer to a 50/50 split of peanut butter and chocolate. Not much cookie dough flavor to report from this first bar.
Lastly, I’m happy to report that there was no delayed “side effect” that sent me to the bathroom after eating one of these compared to how the Outright Bar treated me.
