    Had my usual supply of R&C bars given to me last night, and when I opened it today for my break I was very pleasantly surprised (if mroe so than usually!).

    They are normally quite dense and chewy (yum) but this time they were more like Rice Krispies - light and airy (double yum:D). Have I had a stray bar or have they changed??:confused:

    I don't take the cran bars, but the crispy nut are definitely different. Darker in colour, lighter in the bite and I think a little sweeter too, still nice though.

    Deb! You got lucky! I had a Cran/Rasp after a long drought and it was like a BRICK LOG!!! LOL - I could barely get a knife through it!!!! But it was still tasty - just a lot of work!

    How are you girls getting on in RTM? :)

    Both the craberry and crispy peanut were changed the last couple of months. My LLC said they were trying out a new process for making them.

    But they proved so unpopular that they have now reverted back to their old ways. Which is a massive relief for me as I HATED the new ones.

    my LL counsellor told the group last week that the peanut bars had changed in consistency as they now produce them at a different factory, still the same company but maybe they are making them in a different way.

    Everyone in my group was raving about the Cranberry bars, but they were out of stock for a few weeks.

    You can imagine the excitement when they came back in.

    Took one with me this morning to the coffee shop full of anticipation.

    WHAT A LET DOWN!

    Ridiculously sweet. Hard as nails - actually made me feel quite sicky after I'd had it.

    Glad I only had one. Definitely preferring the toffee bars - far more palatable.

    Having a fab time, you really do rediscover food and eating in a whole different way. I can see how it is going to work.
