Customer reviews

Customers have reviewed them as tasty, healthy, filling, and have a good balance of protein, carbs, and fats.

Some said it tastes great, but the texture is chewy, while others said it tastes like sand in your mouth and is hard to chew.

The least-liked flavour among customers is the Lemon delight. They say that it’s too sour and it has a weird aftertaste.

To sum up, Think bars are more of a "dietary supplement" rather than something to eat as part of your meal plan.

These bars are recommended for individuals who are active and want a convenient meal replacement bar. 

However, if you are looking for weight loss bars, you may need to try something a little more nutritious and less calorie-dense than these bars.
