Review: That's it. Apple + Mango Bar

I keep grabbing these bars for reviews and each time I grab one, I think to myself "That's it.  That's got to be the end of these bars."  But, it never is it (at least not yet) and I've still got several of these left to review.  And yes, that was definitely in the top ten for the lamest introductory paragraphs that I've ever written for this blog and there's been over one thousand of them.  So, today I embark on this That's it. Apple + Mango Bar that I received via a free sample, just like the others.  This bar clocks in at 1.2 ounces and packed within that are 100 calories and zero grams of protein (LOL).  This two ingredient bar is also all natural, gluten free, kosher, raw and vegan.

Obviously there's only two ingredients in this.  One apple and one mango.  That's it.  That pureed blend of those two fruits produced a brown coloring and when I took this up to my nose to take a whiff, it certainly carried the smell of each.  If you examine the bar closely, you can see chunks of apple and mango spread throughout the mix of this soft and pliable bar (per usual).  Since there's only two ingredients, there's nothing else really to say about this.  That's it.

Biting into this, the two named flavors were represented quite well as this bar was both sweet and tart.  Both flavors were clearly distinguishable too, so that was good.  I will note that neither was particularly powerful, so that was nice because getting knocked on my rear end by one flavor was not something that I was particularly interested in.  I'll also note that as I was chewing through this bar, the flavor reminded me more of raisins than it did apple or mango, which was odd.  Perhaps I was just dreaming that, but it was different in an appealing way.

Buy It or Fly By It?  This was a good bar and I'll give it a BUY IT rating.  Not overly strong or flavorful in any sort of the imagination, but it was a solid performer that I did enjoy eating.  A nice low calorie, healthy treat.
