Pros:Nice size bar!
Cons:High in calories, sugar, not very tasty!
The Bottom Line: Only recommended for those that like to chew, chew, chew!
Kashi is a brand that when I think about it, I think of healthy food. I've tried several things in their product line and I've been mostly satisfied until I tried Kashi GoLEAN Malted Chocolate Crisp Bar. It was not very tasty or rewarding. In fact, this would probably be a great way to diet because I would pass these up until forced to eat them again!

Kashi GoLEAN Bars
I purchased the Malted Chocolate Crisp flavor of the Kashi GoLEAN Bar. It sounded like a bar I would like from reading the description on the packaging. The flavor, malted chocolate crisp, is one I like. It boasted of high protein and fiber and was an all natural product.
Kashi GoLEAN Bars also come in Chocolate Almond Toffee, Oatmeal Raisin Cookie, Cookies & Cream and Peanut Butter & Chocolate. They are sold individually for $1.89-$2.49 or by the box. Each box contains 12 bars and retails for about $21.50.
My Thoughts On Kashi GoLEAN Malted Chocolate Crisp Bar
The first thing that impressed me at the store was the size of these bars. They are huge. They weigh 2.75 oz. and are about twice the size of most breakfast/snack bars.
However, after taking my first bite of the Kashi GoLEAN Malted Chocolate Crisp Bar, I was no longer impressed. The flavor is nothing to jump up and down about at all. It is an un-natural chocolate flavor. I also didn't like the fact that this bar was so dense. It was a bit too hard for my liking and hard to chew.
If you are looking for a good diet food that will teach you to chew your food well, and take awhile to eat, this would be the perfect food to do just that!
The Malted Chocolate Crisp flavor was on the sweet side, which accounts for the high sugar content and calories. I also didn't notice any "crisp" to this bar--but it was plenty chewy enough!
Overall, I didn't think too highly of this nutrition bar. The flavor wasn't for me, nor was the consistency of this bar.

I didn't personally like the flavor or texture of Kashi GoLEAN Malted Chocolate Crisp Bar. I didn't find it to be the worst bar that I have eaten but it was also far from pleasant! I give Kashi GoLEAN Malted Chocolate Crisp Bars 2 Stars.
