Just had a blueberry Unibar for lunch.  WOW.  I have heard that they have been slightly reformulated from the last time I had 'em.  Well, they were already fab, as I said in the review I wrote about 'em ump-de-ump moons ago, but now they are fabULOUS!  (Had a chocolate-cherry one yesterday and it seemed about the same as before to me, i.e., very good indeed, but apparently they have been slightly reformulated, too.)

Anyway, if anyone wants a powerful punch of flavor, get the blueberry Unibars.  Delish.

Good to know. I ordered one of each flavor with my last order just to give them another try (I tried the Choc Cherry at one time and didn't care for it) but haven't opened either one yet, as I am abstaining (for the next three days) from any form of sweetener and all grains except rice. I plan to take them on the river trip next week as a backup for the pre-planned (by non-BTD folks) lunches that will be served.

I love the Chocolate Cherry.  I think they taste very different than they did before.  They are much softer and have more of an almond butter taste.
I haven't had the Blueberry since the reformulation.  Maybe I should have ordered a single one to see if I liked it.

Yes, I've had the Unibars, and they are, quite honestly, the best-tasting and most energizing and filling snack bars I've ever had.

I´m green with envy
The unibars cost 5 dollars each  here in Europe
I can get a decent bottle of wine for that price or 200 grams good quality chocolate
maybe it is not so strange that BTD is for the weidoes here

Yeah, they are very filling.  They don't let you down midway between meals.  If you eat one as a meal replacement, it will last you until your next meal and then some.  Fantastic.

This morning I had a roast beef sandwich on millet and flax bread.  For lunch, I'm having a blueberry bar.  I'll have to get my veggies and fruit in at dinner.

Very convenient and diet-supportive, having the bars in my "BTD Survival" drawer at work.  Currently, in my drawer, we have:

Blueberry-almond Uni's
Choc-cherry Uni's
My Haiku Hojicha 100% organic roasted green tea
Celestial Seasonings 100% peppermint tea
Eden Organic roasted pumpkin seeds
Sweet Cactus Farms agave nectar (you never know when you are going to need this stuff!)
Cerulean Seas fine sea salt (don't get the "course", get the "fine", unless you like your salt in the form of giant boulders)

Usually, I have rooibos tea in there, too, but I ran out yesterday.

Anyway, the bars really help me stay on track, especially if I'm rushed and haven't had time to prepare anything for a homemade breakfast or lunch for work, which seems to be a regular thing with me in the mornings lately.  Between separating the pets and ensuring that Ember ingests her bit of salmon with her 1/4 of a heart med. pill in it, feeding and caring for all the pets, and getting my own act together, that leaves precious little or zero time in the morning for me to get to work by 7:30 a.m.!  (Imagine if someday I added an adopted kid to the mix--boy howdy!)  True, a disciplined pup would prepare her lunch and/or breakfast the night before, but, while I can be very disciplined, I don't seem to be that way when it comes to preparing meals in advance.  Although, now that I've discovered quinoa, I probably will have more things ready in single servings to go, such as a fridge full of tabouleh at any given time *lol*!

But the bars surely do help keep me on track.

Another thing I like about the Unibars--no one at my workplace wants to steal them from my cubbyhole. One did get taken and the thief then had the gall to complain about how 'awful' it was! (I suppose they would taste bad to someone used to eating supersweet processed snacks.) But they are far from awful, though it did take me one bar to get used to them. And others have said the same thing--you sorta hafta chew your way through one to find out how really delicious they are.

Macadamia walnut chocolate bars . . . coming soon, I hope. Hint hint

It took me a listen or three to get used to Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon", too.  But it became one of my favorite albums of all time.  Great works of art are like that--you don't get all the layers of complexity right off the bat.  Same principle at play with the Unibars.  Complexity rules!

At least this time, I'm going into it knowing this beforehand.

Personally I liked the old blueberry bars better.  But the new Choc. Cherry ones are definitely better.  A little less chocolate tasting which was a bit disappointing but softer and don't get stuck in my teeth as much!

I bought my mother two packages of blueberry and chocolate Unibars, and she positively raves over them.  She says they are so filling.  She runs a public school, and she's asked me to keep ordering them for her.

Also, my sister is an avid cyclist and, when she came home for the holidays, she asked Mom if she could try a bar, and she got hooked.  She loved it.

I will not rest until this diet is the dominant paradigm.

Since figs and plums are beneficials for almost everybody and they have such a mild but filling taste, I would love to see a fig-plum bar.  Some kind of nut in that would be awesome, too.

At the conferance I got 2 boxes of Unibars. They are fantastic, last 4 hours without any hunger pangs.
I prefere blueberry taste, but chocolate is good as well.

funkeymuse, could you clarify if the old unibars had more blueberry flavor, or the new ones do...? in your opinion, of course!

Well, I think the new blueberries are positively bursting with blueberryness at every turn.  They are my faves, without a doubt.

However, I just ate me a choc. cherry bar for lunch and now I do notice that they indeed seem to have more of the chocolate liquer in there which is niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice.  Ummmm UM, I guar-un-teeeEEEEE!  ...Sorry, I was channelling Justin Wilson (The Cajun Chef) there for a minute, may he rest in peace).

Anyway, yeah, about the fillingness thing, I can't believe how filling these are, and I specifically mean in a long-lasting way.  One of these babies will do ya for hours and hours to come.  No fuss, no muss.

These are the best bars EVER!  I have spoken.

How long ago were the bars re-formulated?  Was is recently.  I tried them several months ago and just couldn't get into them - they were way too chewy and stuck in my teeth too much.  I'd give them another chance though if they weren't so sticky any more.
