Honey Bunches of Oats Banana Nut Cereal Bars

Honey Bunches of Oats Banana Nut Cereal Bars

Ever since I started eating these new Honey Bunches of Oats Banana Nut Cereal Bars, I’ve been acting kind of strange. I guess someone could say I’ve been acting “bananas” and “nuts.”

I’m beginning to think that the saying, “You are what you eat,” is actually true.

If you don’t believe me, then listen to the crazy things I’ve done recently.

Many of you know about my insane McDonald’s Dollar Menu binge the other week. Besides Ruben Studdard, what sane person would stuff themselves with all that food in one sitting?

If you don’t think that’s nuts, I watched dangerous amounts of programming on the PAX Network, and when I say “dangerous amounts of programming,” I mean any amount over two minutes.

Still don’t think I deserve a straitjacket? Well how about me watching hours of the Ashlee Simpson Show, then buying her album “Autobiography” from iTunes, playing it over and over again on my iPod, and learning the words by heart, so I can lip-sync them as well as she can.

I guess I should’ve realized something was wrong after eating the first Honey Bunches of Oats Banana Nut Cereal Bar and soon after becoming the winning bidder for underwear on eBay.

However, the cereal bars were good and I saw my eBay purchase as a need for underwear and not as a sign of becoming crazy.

The cereal bars didn’t taste much like the actual Honey Bunches of Oats cereal, even though they had the same crispy flakes and oat clusters the cereal has. I thought it wasn’t as sweet as the cereal. However, these cereal bars were definitely better than the Honey Bunches of Oats with Real Bananas cereal, which The Impulsive Buy reviewed last year.

Besides being good tasting, these cereal bars are also sort of good for you. Each bar has as much calcium as a glass of milk and has nine other vitamins and minerals. However, this isn’t special because the better-tasting Hershey’s SnackBarz I tried a few months ago, with its crispy rice, marshmallows, and milk chocolate, is a good source of calcium, iron, and seven essential vitamins.


Plus, the Hershey’s SnackBarz didn’t make me do anything crazy, like eat in one sitting half a bag of Ruffles Light, with the anal-leakage-causing Olestra.

Well I guess I should be glad I didn’t eat any Hostess Ho-Ho’s.

  1. those look really yummy! i’m always on the lookout for things i can stash at work for breakfast. thankfully eating breakfast at 9 am, an hour into work, rather than before coming to work, has become a widely accepted practice in my office. i’ll have to see if i can get these in germany. perhaps we have them at our little american-products-only stores on base.

    love the lipsyncing reference. 🙂 just when you think the world is done talking about something…

  2. I’ve tried these before also and think they’re definitely the reason I’m bananas. Yes…that’s the reason!!! Finally glad we figured that out! On yet another note, wanted to tell you that Mr. Aymie’s Mom is loving his showers now. He does have a problem ,however, with the fact that the AXE bottle actually was very close to your naked body! Other than that, he appreciates smelling better (and so do I!) Thanks Marvo my sweet.

  3. ooo… this bar looks like something I may eat during music theory.

    The only reason to watch PAX is the reruns of old episodes of america’s funniest home videos with Bob Saget.
    ..I hate bob saget so much.

  4. Food that isn’t bad for you? Marvo, you’re ruining my image of you, here! Of course, anything that makes you buy an Ashlee Simpson alblum can’t be completely healthy, so I’ll let you slide this time.

  5. I Think you Better Stop Eating The Cereal Bars!
    You Might Wake Up One Morning In A Cereal Bar Detox Program.
    With No Underwear, PaxTV Or Your Ashlee Simpson CD.

  6. I have yet to find a cerel bar that I like. I guess I will have to try this one. I have to eat breakfast other wise my whole day is ruined and it is hard to find something quick and convenient that is also good. Pop Tarts I still rule!!! Yahtzee!

  7. I bought those a few weeks ago to review but I tried them and thought they were just alright and got lazy about reviewing them. I’m not a big fan of dried out bananas. Not really into cereal bars or Honey Bunches of Oats. At least someone enjoys them I guess.

  8. Megan – Just when you think the world is done talking about something…I rehash it and make people sick of it.

    SEV – I could blame it on the bananas or I could blame it on the crack. Blaming it on the bananas won’t get me arrested.

    Aymie’s Mom – I’m glad you two are enjoying it.

    kt – Aaah, America’s Funniest Home Videos, or as I like to call it, the old folks version of Jackass.

    Chuck – Hey I live nearby two natural health food stores, don’t make me buy even healthier organic stuff.

  9. Damon – You make detox sound like it’s a bad thing. No underwear, no PAX TV, and no Ashlee Simpson, I’d go detox for that.

    Becky – You should stick with the Pop-Tarts. Nothing is more convenient, quick, and better tasting. You’ve got a dozen flavors to choose from. Plus, they’re cheaper than cereal bars.

    TheInfamousJ – If you fill out the website field in the comment form your name will be blue and will link to your site.

    Archebaldo – Yeah, I got lazy with the Hershey’s SnackBarz review. Actually there’s a lot of stuff I’ve been too lazy to review.

  10. But they are probably way healthier for you in terms of saturated fat and calories than the Hershey’s bars. 🙂

    Sorry, I’m a nutrition major and my roommate has to put up with me saying stuff like that all the time. 😉

  11. Toaster Strudels were’nt half bad either. Still not as good as Pop Tarts though.

    I never knew they made Cereal Bars. Why would you go to a Cereal Bar? The only chick you could pick up would be 6 years old, and that’s just sick. Plus, I heard cereal killers go there.

  12. Lorien – That’s okay, I know you’re just practicing, because you’re probably going to have to say stuff like that a lot, if you become a nutritionist.

    kaos – So Michael Jackson and priests would hang out there too? Anyway, here a REAL cereal bar.

  13. Damon – I wish we had a Cereality here. I also wish we had a Hardee’s, an Olive Garden, and an In-N-Out Burger.

  14. And don’t forget White Castle! Biggest penis in the fast food world!

    Holy shit I said it as a joke. I had no idea such a place existed. I am speechless.

    No I’m not. ROCK! That rules!

  15. Jay Nickola – SNL is 50 percent funny.

    kaos – Oops, forgot about White Castle. On second though, maybe not White Castle. I’d be afraid of stepping on his huge penis.

  16. I heard these milk and cereal bars have lots of sugar or fat or something. Maybe that’s only some of them though.
    And I saw Cereality on the Food Network!!

  17. lightpinksheep – The Honey Bunches of Oats Cereal Bars aren’t that bad when it comes to sugar and fat. Also, I learned about Cereality on the Food Network too. Oh, I wish someone would open one here.
