Smell: it smells strongly of apple pie
Taste unmodified: It has a slight apple pie flavor, has more of a taste of apple with skin on it and a dash of cinnamon.
Taste heated (Home): the smell goes away but the apple flavor strengthens beautifully
Taste baked: I baked it in a toaster oven 350F for 3min & 30sec flipped it over and baked for an additional 1min. The smell apple pie smell boosts along with the flavor. The crunch of the cookie makes me feel like i am actually eating apple pie!
Overall: Very Good! I had my doubts at first since it looked like a quest bar but the taste was amazing and the baked version won my heart.

Smell: it smells of peanut butter and strong banana smell that comes off a bit artificial
Taste unmodified: It reminds me of banana laffy taffy no real sign of the peanut butter 😦 it also left my fingers a bit greasy
Taste heated (Home): it smells and taste like banana bread with a slight laffy taffy aftertaste
Taste baked: I baked it in a toaster oven 350F for 3min & 30sec flipped it over and baked for an additional 1min. it smells like toast with melted peanut butter topped with bananas and syrup, but it taste like banana bread with a kiss of peanut butter.
Overall: the apple pie had given me hope that the bar would exceed my expectations, but this one left me disappointed, still hungry. the best version consumed was baked.
