    The Chocolate Deluxe version of WorldWide Sport's Pure Protein Bar line used to be my absolute favorite nutrition bar--nice thick chewy texture--a deep, rich dark chocolate flavor--heavenly rich chocolate wrapped in a dark chocolate coating. Something you could really sink your teeth into. Flavorwise, better than most candy bars, honestly. I bought a 6-pack of the smaller (50g) size recently (Note: this size is not currently carried by netrition, however, I assume my experience applies to the product that is--the 78g bar). For the 50g bar--both the net carb and calorie counts were higher (from 1 gram net carbs and 170 calories to 2 grams net carbs and 180 calories). The change in nutritional value wasn't too much of an issue with me--the problem was in the taste. Gone was the rich, dark chocolate flavor. It has been replaced by something average at best. I contacted the company about the reformulation. The company stated that indeed there was a reformulation and that the product was changed to include only "natural flavors." Seems like a noble effort. Unfortunately it worsens the flavor, instead of improving upon it. WorldWide--please go back to the original version, artificial flavors or not. It was far superior in taste to (not to mention lower in both net carbs and calorie than) the new "improved" version.

    A few years ago the formula was changed. Since that time I no longer can eat them as they produce too much intestinal irritation (gas). I used to buy a lot but now only for my husband. Not sure what the change did but wish it would go back to the original.
