Kashi® TLC® Peanutty Dark Chocolate Layered Granola Bars

Recently some friends and I had the opportunity with Green MomsMeet  to get a first hand taste of Kashi TLC's new Peanutty Dark Chocolate Bars. Almost all that sampled these bars loved the peanutty taste and layer of chocolate and the varied texture of these bars. Those few that could not try the bars due to peanut allergies, decided to donate their samples to be put into care packages for soldiers and servicemen and women..( and I am sure they are going to be very happy with these bars.) As with all sampling, I believe it is important that we share all peoples opinions from our group in honesty. All of those sampling the bars agreed the package is colorful and inviting,  and gives a clear description of product contents.  Several of the people trying these bars mentioned to me that they loved the taste of the bars, but some did find them much drier than most granola bars.  Because of the dryness, they felt these bars should be eaten with a glass of milk or cup of tea for moisture. For small children that love bars for their snack, it would be no problem as they usually have their milk or juice with their snack. They also said because they loved the taste, they would purchase them in the future to give them another try. All agreed these bars would be a good travel, office, school, or on-the-go granola snack.

Kashi TLC Peanutty Dark Chocolate Layered Granola Bars  retail normally for about $3.89 for package of 6. Each bar is individually packaged which makes it a great on-the-go snack bar.  These bars are:
  • Free of high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors, and unnatural preservatives
  • Full of real nutrition: 7 grams of whole grains, 4 grams of fiber, and 4 grams of protein from peanuts and soy crisps

 The following is taken from Kashi's own description of their bars.
  ..."Made with whole grain goodness and layers of tasty ingredients, our TLC® Layered Granola Bars are delicious indulgence you can feel good about.  Each bar starts with our signature blend of 7 whole grains for a hearty, natural wholesomeness. The chewy granola base is then topped with real fruit spread and hearty nuts. And with 4g of fiber, 4g of protein and real fruit, they're as nutritious as they are tasty.
Naturally, our TLC Layered Granola Bars are filled with so many good-for-you ingredients, you'll www.kashi.comnever miss what's missing - artificial flavors and preservatives. We promise.
Who doesn’t love savory peanuts and rich chocolate together in one? Our Peanutty Dark Chocolate Layered Bars are made with chewy granola, roasted peanuts and peanut butter, then layered with real fruit spread mixed with dark chocolate. A sprinkle of roasted peanuts and bits of chocolate tops them off. Each bar has 7 grams of fiber* and 4 grams of protein."

Kashi wants to help children eat better, and to enjoy it.They offer a wide variety of all natural foods- cereals, bars, waffles, frozen entrees, and crackers...all of which are nourishing and satisfying, while tasting good !

I also had the opportunity to sample and taste Kashi Cinnamon Harvest Cereal and Kashi TLC Soft-Baked Ripe Strawberry Cereal Bars.  The Strawberry bars are baked with real fruit and wildflower honey which makes them extra tasty.  The Strawberry cereal bars offer 3 grams of fiber and 11 grams of whole grains in each bar, which makes them ideal for morning or mid-morning snacks.  Both were enjoyed and will be on future shopping lists!
