Food Critic’s Review:

These cookie bars were good, but not my favorite cookie bar ever. I appreciated the flavor of them, especially the bunches of chocolate chips that I found in every bite; but in the end, I found them to be a little too sweet for my taste. These are definitely the kind of bar that you really have to watch the portions on, because one bite too many and you might experience a little bit of sweetness overload! Maybe substituting bittersweet or darker chocolate would help cut the sweetness a little bit. Overall, these bars are tasty, but if you don’t have much of a sweet tooth, you may want to avoid these.
