Ive now tried both and whilst I agree the first bite of the salty one is a bit too salty, once I got past that I thought it was fine. I also was drinking a coffee at the time - that likely helped.
Re the chocolate, then that wasn't as chocolaty as I imagined, but I actually prefer it that way.
To explain, for me I don't want a meal / bar to be too 'more-ish' as its not a treat, its a meal stand in.
So from that perspective, they both hit the taste good enough to eat again on the odd occasion. But not so good, that I stock my cupboard full of them and I want to eat one each time I have a hot drink!
