My thoughts:
All three of the bars look the same and have the same density. The only one that looked different was the Blueberry Pomegranate Crunch bar. One thing that I noticed about them besides their appearance and texture were their taste. You could not taste the fish oil in any of them. Now, considering that I am not a huge fish person and the smell of fish oil repulses me, this was huge. I thought for sure I would find a hint of fish in these bars but I found nothing. I would also like to add that they are quite filling. I found that half of a bar would curb a mid afternoon hunger and sustain me until my lunch break.

Dark Chocolate Peanut- This bar really threw the Mr. and I. We were expecting a very peanut taste and instead couldn't taste anything remotely like peanut. I could taste oats and a hint of mint but no peanut. Which was a let down for me since I could eat a jar of peanuts or take a spoon to a jar of peanut butter and be set for life.

Mocha- There should be a disclaimer here because I don't like mocha flavored things. Just like I don't like banana flavored anything, same goes for mocha. Unless of course you are handing me a cup of coffee. So I feel like my review on the taste of this bar is mute.

Dark Chocolate Mint- Okay close your eyes and think Thin Mints. That is exactly what this bar tastes like. If I didn't eat it so fast I would have thrown it in the freezer to see if it had the same effect as it does on the cookie. (I know I am not the only one that does this.)

Blueberry Pomegranate Crunch- This bar had a very powerful blueberry taste to it. It reminded me of the blueberry pomegranate juice that we drink but only in bar form.

My thoughts:
All three of these cookies were delicious! They did however have a grainy texture to them but the Mr. and I chalked it up to all the protein that is in them. Neither one of us were put off by it and if there was a Boundless Nutrition shop next to a Mrs. Fields, we would hands down get these Perfect Fit cookies.

From the pictures left to right.
White Chocolate Macadamia Nut- This cookie was probably my least favorite of the three. It had more of the chalky taste and gritty texture that you associate with the protein bars you get a health food store. However, the Mr. liked this one a lot and said that even though you could certainly tell that is wasn't homemade, he would gladly eat more of them.

Chocolate Chip- Can anything with the words "chocolate chip cookie" be gross? I am starting to believe that the answer is no. For me personally, this was my favorite out of everything that I tasted. Maybe I am just a sucker for chocolate chip cookies but I really liked this cookie. It was just like the cookies you get pre-wrapped in convenient stores except you felt good after eating it.

Peanut Butter- This didn't have a processed peanut butter taste to it at all. It was as if they ground the peanuts up themselves to make a paste and used that in their cookies. I even liked the extra touch of chopped peanuts in the cookie.

I must thank Boundless Nutrition and Amy, who was nice enough to send me a box full of their tasty treats to try. They were even as kind as to offer my readers a box (12 bars or cookies) to one lucky winner! So swing by their webpage and leave a comment here letting me know which ones you would like to try.
