Gingerbread man-shaped granola bars would’ve been cool, Sunbelt Bakery. And also probably very expensive since that would involve developing a new processes and machinery to create said gingerbread man-shaped granola bars. (Spotted by Kelly at Walmart.)

  1. Does the “natural and other flavors” on the gingerbread bars mean anything other than “natural and artificial flavors”? Or is there something that is not natural but also not artificial?

    Snickerdoodle milk sounds great, but is it much different than just putting cinnamon in normal milk?

    1. there’s a term used in flavors called “WONF – with other natural flavors”

      My guess is that it is natural ginger flavor WITH other natural flavors that help it taste like gingerbread and not straight ginger. But the packaging is not very clear on that so this is my guess.

  2. Big fan of Sunbelt Granola Bars and hoping to get more gingerbread flavored items, so when I saw these at HyVee, I had to pick them up. They are good, but no gingerbread flavor. To me they taste like a sugar cookie, good, but not gingerbread.
