I can't speak to the other two bars, but I found the Wild Ophelia bar to not have a pleasant flavor at all...more reminiscent of old, moldy meat than an actual chocolate bar. The chocolate tasted like the cardboard it's wrapped in and the jerky bits were off-flavored and too chewy.

Thanks for the feedback. Yes, the beef jerky chocolate is not for everyone. Ultimately, it was the lack of third-party quality standards that lead me to give this bar only two bites. I'd love to know what you think of the other flavors!
