Both the Strawberry and Watermelon each had very distinct flavors. Strawberry was really sweet, while Watermelon had a milder, more authentic fruit flavor. It tasted kind of like Strawberry had added sugar while Watermelon was just blended fruit that was frozen on a stick, know what I mean? I love both flavors, but depending on how sweet you like your dessert, one flavor might be better for you. The Watermelon actually has white seeds frozen into the bar itself!
Even though Watermelon tasted much less sweet to me, it actually has 14g of sugar per bar while Strawberry has 10g. The calorie count, 50, is the same for both flavors. All the bars are all natural, made with fresh fruit, non-dairy, wheat-free, gluten-free, and sweetened with organic cane juice. They are also naturally fat-free. The ingredient list is nice and short, looking something like this:
Ingredients: watermelon/strawberries, filtered water, organic evaporated cane juice, guar gum, xanthan gum.
All in all, a very nice nutritional label. Palapa Azul bars are perfect for an anytime treat that doesn't leave your stomach feeling heavy or your mind feeling unhealthy!
