REVIEW LIGHTNING ROUND (SNACK BAR EDITION) – 2/7/2013

Here are some quick reviews of new snack bars we’re too lazy to write full reviews for:

Kellogg's Nutri-Grain Strawberry Parfait Fruit Crunch Granola Bars

Item: Kellogg’s Nutri-Grain Strawberry Parfait Fruit Crunch Granola Bars
Purchased Price: $2.79
Size: 5 pack
Purchased at: Target
Rating: 5 out of 10
Pros: Pretty much tastes like a regular granola bar. Crunchy. Has some fiber. It has dried cranberries. Thank goodness it’s not another Nutri-Grain cereal bar.
Cons: Super long name. Strawberry may be in its long name, but strawberry flavor was lacking. Made with partially hydrogenated oils. Not sure eating a pack is worth the 20% of my daily recommended intake of saturated fat.

Kellogg's Special K Berry Streusel Pastry Crisps

Item: Kellogg’s Special K Berry Streusel Pastry Crisps
Purchased Price: $3.79
Size: 5 pack
Purchased at: Target
Rating: 7 out of 10
Pros: Flavor reminds me of a Pop-Tart. Nice berry flavor. 1000 times better tasting than regular Special K cereal. Crispy and light. Only 100 calories and two grams of fat per pack. Kind of makes me want to go on the Special K diet again.
Cons: Flavor reminds me of a Pop-Tart. Why isn’t it called Blackberry Streusel since that’s the only berry in it? Contains no fiber. Makes me yearn for a Pop-Tart.

Nabisco Honey Maid Strawberry Yogurt Creme Grahamfuls

Item: Nabisco Honey Maid Strawberry Yogurt Creme Grahamfuls
Purchased Price: $3.49
Size: 8 pack
Purchased at: Target
Rating: 7 out of 10
Pros: Nice slightly tart strawberry flavor. Creme does taste like strawberry yogurt. 100% whole grain. Good source of calcium. If you hate HFCS, you’ll be happy to hear these don’t contain any.
Cons: Yogurt in them is really yogurt powder. It’s a crumb-making machine. Contains the somewhat confusing “Natural Flavor with Other Natural Flavor.” If you’re a corn farmer, you might be sad they don’t contain HFCS.
