    Hi, my fave is the choc mint, chocolate chewy bar is ok, nothing to rave about tbh. I love the smell of the orange bar but for me the flavour disappears after the first couple of bites but I do like it. Peanut and the cranberry ok too but sometimes find myself leaving them until thats all I've got left lol.

    My favourite is the chocolate orange one - I didnt realise they did choc mint one now! have to admit though I'm not a massive fan of the bars anyway tho I'm definitely a tetra girl all the way!!!!!

    I like them all!
    Though I choose to have the crunchy bars, 1, because they take longer to eat and 2, they have 10g less carbs in them than the chewy bars!

    same as me! I try to have the crunch ones but I must admit I often used to opt for the orange one as it was my ultimate fave, and I think the mint one will be a fave of mine too - i just love mint choc! But I limit myself to 2 per week, mainly because of the price - £2.10 is a lot for a bar and it really mounts up if you buy one for each day. That's why I have it for a friday treat. I also (in hot weather) love to buy the choc tetra as a friday treat (£2) then I pop it in the freezer and have it as a lovely ice cream :drool: just delicious! x

    Yes the bars are expensive, but I'm afraid I do buy one for everyday as I feel the need to 'eat' at least once a day and sometimes I do have a 2nd one too. I guess they still cost less than a sarnie that I wouldn't think twice about, plus the crisps to go with it! ;)

    Emma, not sure if you know already, but I was reading the CWP forum last night and there is a post by a CDC to say that the products, including the tetras, shouldn't be frozen, according to head office. Apparently, 'kills' the nutrients. Not sure if it would matter if you were just doing it occasionally though - I was really suprised as I didn't think it would make any difference!

    As for the bars, I have the crunchy, as I prefer the taste, but also because of them having far less carbs as mentioned earlier.

    Love the mint choc and peanut. Hated the choc orange and cranberry!

    Yes I have heard this, but it made no difference to my losses - i tried it out once. So I just continued. Like I say it was only on a Friday night having a frozen tetra and bar. It'd be interesting though if I had them daily whether it would have an effect :rolleyes:

    Hi, did your CDC mention the bars to you or did you have to ask? Been on CD since beginning of march and she hasn't mentioned them or the water flavourings??

    I have the mixamousse though and that makes lush mousse. Xxx
