Gnu Bars

Ok, so I've groused about how I'm an old lady and thinking about such old lady things like fiber, but the other day, I was on LifeHacker and saw a link to a discussion on Ask MetaFilter for recommendations on a good Power Bar-like bar that you can have as a mid-day snack that wasn't so gross. Various people recommended the Gnu Bars by Gnu Foods.

Check out the ingredients for the Orange Cranberry bar:
Gnu High Fiber Blend ™ (Organic whole wheat flour, oats, wheat bran, psyllium, flax, millet, soy flour), fruit juice, natural grain dextrins (a natural and unmodified starch), canola oil, raisins, apples, plums, cranberries, rice, natural flavors, aluminum-free baking powder.

Here is the nutritional info:

Sounds great! The only real worry was what it would taste like. I ordered a month pack (best deal), which arrived yesterday. So far, I've had an Orange Cranberry one and a Banana Walnut one. Both of them are delicious and taste like actual food, and have a good chewy bite to them. Feels like a granola bar, except not glued together with honey and sugar. I haven't tried the Cinnamon Raisin one yet, but I have high hopes.
