I was so excited when Quaker sent me a whole box of the new True Delights granola bars! Being a food blogger has it’s privileges. There are 3 different flavors: Honey Roasted Cashew Mixed Berry, Dark Chocolate Raspberry Almond, and Toasted Coconut Banana Macadamia Nut. I should preface this review by saying that I don’t normally purchase boxes of granola bars, but they are good in a pinch. Usually I wait until I have a snack emergency and then scramble to buy a bar.
I have now tried each of the 3 flavors, and the Macadamia Nut bar is definitely my favorite. The macadamia nuts are prominent and the bar has a strong coconut flavor. I did love the chocolate chunks in the Dark Chocolate Raspberry bar though. The Cashew Mixed Berry bar did not have any distinct flavors. Overall, the bars are quite sweet, even for someone like me with a pretty big sweet tooth. They definitely taste like a treat.
The major drawback is that they are not very filling for 140 calories. They are fairly small, and didn’t really satisfy my hunger. Based on this, I would use them as a complement to a meal rather than a standalone snack. Give them a try and let me know what you think!
