Good product but wrong package

The Nature Valley bars are in general very good. They are healthy crunchy and taste good. However, I didn’t see anywhere, but at Costco, the big package with 48 bars. Since I am a Costco customer, the obvious solution would be to buy at Costco. Unfortunately they only offer one type of bar on that package size, which is the peanuts with peanut butter. I don’t like much this type because the peanut butter makes it too sweet. At Amazon, I can find most types, but why do they only sell a 6×6 package and not a 1×48? They would be able to sell more, 48 versus 36 and the packaging would be cheaper. In addition by buying in large volume, we wouldn’t have to buy as often, which would translate into a shipping and handling savings as well. They could then pass some of that savings to us, the customer, making us happier.

Great Idea, Poor Execution

I typically enjoy other Nature Valley products, like the peanut butter granola bars and sweet & salty nut bars. I thought I’d give these a whirl.

They do have quite a bit of flavor, although I could do without the sunflower seeds. Also, I appreciate that Nature Valley is producing products that are gluten free, which can be hard to come by. But why do they have to be so hard and dry? They crumble very easily and are extremely messy; do not attempt to eat them in the car. Because of this even opening one package can be dangerous, as they are typically not whole once they’ve been shipped. They tend to crumble inside the package.

I’d like to see Nature Valley improve upon these, because they do taste good and they are gluten free.

Best “power bar” available

This has got to be the most satisfying “power bar” ever. Peanuts and sunflower seeds, period…with just enough sweet and salty binder to hold them together.

These bars are amazing

I recently tried both the Peanut and Almond varieties of the Nature Valley Roasted Nut Crunch. These bars are amazing! Imagine the flavor and crunch of brittle, but with just enough of the syrup to hold the nuts together. Also the nuts are a little salty, so the contrast is nice. This bar is all nuts. With just 7 and 6 grams of sugar respectively per bar, the 7 grams of protein and 2g of fiber are really attractive.
My daughter likes these as a snack before swimming because they give her an energy boost. I like the fact that they are more nutritionally balanced than most snack foods. They tend to crumble when you eat them, so eating them in bar form can be a challenge. I break them before I open the package, and pop the pieces in my mouth. Either way, they make a great snack.

Great snack bar

I tried these based on other reviews. When I received them I hadn’t realized they were “gluten free” which doesn’t matter to me. Anyway, they are a great snack – not too much sugar and plenty of peanuts. I will order them again.

yummy, healthy & gluten free!

I think these are great! The flavor is good…I love the combination of salty and sweet, and the sugar content is low compared to other bars I have eaten. They also have lots of protein and fiber. They are definitely a good alternative for those of us who are gluten free, especially since they are very affordable. The only criticism I have is that they are pretty hard, so I break them into little pieces so it’s easier to eat.

Delicious and affordable gluten free

These are great snacks with a peanut brittle like texture, and nutritious additions like sunflower seeds and almonds . The whole family loves them, not just the gluten free person and they are very affordable. I love that I can get them in the regular section of my supermarket as well as on Amazon and not pay the premium price that is usually charged for anything gluten free.

Nutty nom nom

These are good, but beware. It’s roasted nuts, so it’s about 60% fat. That’s good for active people, and would be awesome as trail food, sports snacks, or for my kids, but for those of us who sit on our duffs all day, these don’t meet our dietary needs.

Even so, these are very tasty. They’re not too sweet, and not too salty. All told, I like the Almond Crunch much better. Both have peanuts. Both are the same amount of protein, fat and sugar.

So Glad they are available online

Because I am having trouble keeping my blood sugar levels steady, I always keep one of these bars in my purse. They are tasty and high in protein. I love these nut bars, but was having trouble finding them in the local stores. I was very glad to find them online, and I use the automated shipping program so that I will always have a box in my pantry.

Crunchy

My husband and I enjoy the peanut crunch by Nature Valley. It is hard to find in stores; in my area, New Port Richey, Florida, all that is available is almond crunch. I am allergic to almonds. The only place I can get the peanut variety regularly is Amazon. Thanks Amazon!

Perfect Fast Protein … And Delish!

This is a very nice nutbar to have on hand for those rushed days, as this and a cuppa tea will see you through a missed lunch. They used to be 7 g of protein and the bars were a tad bit larger, but they kept the same sized wrapper and shrank the contents, so it’s now 6 g’s. That notwithstanding, it’s a great alternative for kids who might otherwise eat junk.

Yummy

Chock full of peanuts and sunflower seeds, these suckers hit the spot. The sugar that glues them together does a decent job of keeping them intact in transit without messing with the nut flavor. You know I love them, I ordered 36 Bars at once.

Delcious and nutritious

This is a favorite of all of us in the house. They are so good and filling too. A healthy snack to have on hand when you are hungry but want to eat something good for you and not junk food.
LucienMunday, WV

delicious product

This is the most delicious prodluct of this type on the market. I have tried the almond but this one excedes the almond one. I love the crunchy nuts that are in this product and if you like peanuts this is the one for you

Best Gluten Free Bar!

Nature Valley Gluten Free Roasted Nut crunch bars are the perfect snack on the go! They are low in sugar and taste Great! we all love them.
WillianNorth Palm Beach, FL

excellent snack

These are delicious! Nutty, sweet but not too sweet, just perfect. They aren’t easily found in stores so I am stocking up. I like to keep a few in the car and one in my purse. The protein in the bars are a nice blend with the sweet. I never feel like I am eating junk. The ingredient list is minimal. No soy lecithin or partially hydronated oil. Okay, so they have 6 grams of sugar in them, but that is better than most snack bars or even yogurt.

crunchy and great taste

I tried to find this for a long time, they only available at Target not at Sam’s, Sam’s sell those with the soft sugar coating. I like this crunchy one, I go to target only for this. Now, I able to get them from Amazon. I love it. The other one I like is Almond crunch which is not available from Amazon I got to order it separately from Alice.com.

Great little bar – good pick me up for low calories & gluten free

Gluten free, without any sacrifice in taste. Easy to pack along and won’t be compromised if not refrigerated as they hold up to warm weather well. Crunchy and can be a bit crumbly when eaten. I like the almond and peanut varieties equally. The price on Amazon is terrific and makes these a perfect snack. Low in calories but big on taste.
OrvalWynnewood, OK

YUM!

These are super-duper good. They are very crunchy, but not too crunchy. They are very sweet, but not too sweet. Perfect for the killer-hungries at my desk at 3:30 p.m., and they are surprisingly filling and satisfying. You can’t go wrong with these. Have fun!

I really like these!

I wasn’t sure if I would like these when I bought them, but to my surprise, they taste really good!

Another reviewer mentioned that they were like a peanut brittle and I tend to agree, only these aren’t that hard and much easier to crumble and eat. I love sunflower seeds, so was happy to see them in these.

Even with being shipped across country, all the bars were in one piece and completely intact. I will be buying them again, soon.

great snack

My husband and I like this snack because it’s not too sweet and has some protein in it. Our kids like it because it tastes great! We’ve never had a problem with Amazon’s packaging or shipping of this product.
