Yes, the formula was changed last fall. I made a post about it then.

There is a 100% guarantee and you may call the company and request a replacement.
The bars were reformulated to eliminate high fructose corn syrup.

The texture of some of the bars has changed considerably.
The Chocolate Mint and Chocolate Divine are very different from their formerly chewy fudgy like texture and are now very crunchy and chewy.

If your order was placed within the last 30 days, grab your invoice with the order number give TSFL a call at (800) 572-4417 and they will help you.

Sorry that you do not care for them.

Mike ~

Thank you for posting the All Points Bulletin!
I was away from the office this afternoon and did not get a chance to post it.

People, Medifast has been working to eliminate the HFCS from all their meal replacement products.

The chemist works closely with the nutritional staff to finalize the formula and then it goes to manufacturing and packaging. The goal is to produce bars that contain no high fructose corn syrup and evidently the Caramel Nuts are now HFCS free!

So, I guess I may be lamenting soon myself. These are, in essence, my favorite bars.
Maybe I will like the new one. :mrgreen:
