Too much cereal
There is not that much nut or berry content, just dry tasting cereal that leaves you thirsty and wishing you did not buy and use it.
Quite good. Not enough nuts though
Keep in the refrigerator
If I had never seen the Fruit and Nut bars before, one look at the label would tell me that they are not particularly healthful. The ingredients include corn syrup, honey, and sugar listed twice. In fact, there are 14 grams of sugar in every 34 gram bar. That is forty percent! Although the label does claim all natural ingredients, that does not necessarily mean that the contents are all good for you.
The sugar seems to be what holds the fruit and nuts together. The reason that I keep them in the refrigerator is that when the bars get warm, they do not hold their shape. You do not want to put one in your pocket on a warm day. They become a sticky blob.
So why do I keep a big supply of them around? I like them. When cooled, they keep their shape as a crunchy rectangle of nuts and fruit. Their nutty texture is very nice. The taste is great, although the sugar does make its presence known. I do not eat them every day or take them with me to go hiking. For that, I like the Oats and Honey, Almond, or Peanut Butter varieties of Nature Valley granola bars. Those varieties have a more reasonable sugar content. However, I like a Fruit and Nut bar as an occasional treat to go with tea or coffee. Maybe I am addicted to them.
does not meet quantity as advertised
I’m in love. 🙂
I’m in college, this is a great to keep my brain working.
as good as they were before. They have these hard things in them that can break your
teeth! So quality control is not being monitored and I’m going to call the company and
let them know that the last 4 boxes I’ve purchased are not up to par. They taste really
good as long as you don’t bite into something hard. It’s like biting into a nutshell
and they need to know this asap.
