Trader Joe's Raises the Bar Chewy Granola Bar: Oats mixed with grains and seeds like quinoa and amaranth, bound together with a maple-syrup flavored glaze, produce a varied textural experience that's more familiar than interesting, especially if you've ever eaten one of many like it that now saturate the healthy-snack food aisle. These chewy granola bars are clearly Trader Joe's response to Kind bars, in which the company succeeds through sheer mimicry and value pricing. Nonetheless, they are tasty enough and filling, making them a sol... (read more) 3.0/5.0

Naturebox Aplpe CInnamon Yogurt Bar: Another complimentary snack on Delta, this dense granola bar has a layer of yogurt icing on the bottom. Its flavor is exactly the same as the Quaker apple cinnamon microwavable hot cereal packs, and the yogurt has the same waxy texture as yogurt-covered pretzels. It's really sweet. 2.5/5.0

Clif Bar Kid Iced Lemon Cookie Z Bar: There are very few times in life where free samples influenced me to support a brand. Back in 2011, I was manning a booth at Maker Faire Bay Area, and after hours of demoing, I was exhausted and extremely hungry. Making my way to the fast food trucks, I came across a Clif Bar tent providing free samples of their line of children's energy snacks. They were both tasty and filling, and I found myself forgoing garlic fries in favor of a healthier alternative. When I saw the bars on sale at B... (read more) 4.0/5.0

Perfect Bar Almond Butter Bar: Dense, nutrient rich snack with just about every ingredient you might find in a health food store, including flax seed oil, kale, rose hip, celery, kelp, and of course, almonds. Not a flavor combination I would ever crave. Texturally, it reminds me of a Power Bar without the glazed coating and with a more dry mouthfeel. Extremely filing, but you would hope so at over 300 calories per bar and 13g of protein. 2.5/5.0

Shribark Original Cranberry Spice bar: This square-shaped snack bar contains a hearty amount of oats and nuts. It's sweeter than I personally would prefer, with whole dried cranberries, but nonetheless has a healthy-snack vibe. Purchased from the Leanbox. 3.0/5.0

Kind Maple Glazed Pecan and Sea Salt Nut Bar: A granola bar with a variety of textures: there are crunchy nuts and crispy grains, but they're bound together with a sweet and chewy maple glaze. The maple was very sweet, though the bar clearly marks that there is only 5g of sugar (it's not a very big bar, though). The sweetness is also offset by the sea salt, which has a prominent flavor. 3.0/5.0
