Kashi Almond Snickerdoodle Chewy Nut Butter Bars: Here, Kashi continues its quest to introduce candy-like flavors to their otherwise health-centric line. Oats and chopped almonds are held together with an almond butter paste. A spiced cinnamon flavor not unlike cinnamon toast crunch dominates the taste. Seems sweeter than its nutrition facts reveal, with 6g of sugar a bar. Like the coconut macaroon bar I previously reviewed, it's not particularly filling but tasty while it lasts. 3.5/5.0

Kashi Coconut Cashew Macaroon Chewy Nut Butter Bars: Kashi has not fared well on Tasty Snacking, averaging a score of 2.6 for products that fall too far on the "health food" spectrum of healthy snacks. With this new line of Chewy Nut Butter Bars, Kashi seems to have realized the limited marketing appeal of wholesome and nourishing ingredients, instead capitalizing on America's love of junk food, all while maintaining a consistent brand strategy. Take a look at the packaging: If you strip away the Kashi logo and minimalist typography, you're ... (read more) 3.5/5.0

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

Kashi Chocolate Almond Sea Salt with Chia Chewy Granola Bars: Slightly better than the previously reviewed mocha almond bar flavor, this Kashi bar is similarly textured but has a more distinct salted flavor and larger chunks of chocolate. Falls safely in granola bar territory (as opposed to candy bar, which these snacks sometimes wander into). Oats, chia seeds, and nuts offer varied crunchy and chewy textures. 3.0/5.0

Kashi Dark Mocha Almond Chewy Granola Bars: Leaning towards the crunchier side of the chewy granola bar spectrum, Kashi's whole grain granola bars contain barley, rye, and oats, as well as roasted almonds and sizable dark chocolate chips. Very lightly sweetened with a mild mocha flavor. I was hoping it would be more filling, but the bar alone would not be enough for the afternoon, and having two granola bars just feels like too much. Overall, it's decent, but not a product I'd likely purchase again. 3.0/5.0

Trader Joe's sweet, savory, and tart trail mix granola bars: A tangy, nutty, chewy combo with ingredients such as cranberries, chocolate chips, and peanuts. I like that the nuts are chopped and incorporated into the snack, so the texture is chewy rather than crunchy. A good mid-day snack. 3.5/5.0
