Taste Test: Beef-Based Energy Bar. I tried my first Omnibar about a week ago and wasn't thrilled. Something about the taste combined with the texture wasn't right with me. The texture reminded me of the cans of shredded jerky you used to be able to buy that looked like chewing tobacco. It was held together better than that, but that's really what it seemed like to me. I have one more bar to get through and I likely will not buy them again. I'll stick with Tanka Bars thanks.
