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

Trader Joe's Ancient grains and nuts granola: Crunchy granola clusters with whole roasted oats, chia seeds, walnuts, and coconut oil. Clusters are good for snacking out of the bag - mash them up to use as a topping for yogurt. Coconut flavor elevates it from your ordinary granola product, but it's also neutral enough to pair with many fruits and flavored yogurt. 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

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

Creative Snack Co. Vanilla Almond Granola: Offered as a complimentary snack on my Delta flight. Better-than-average granola, with decently-sized clusters and a naturally honey sweetness. A welcome snack when you have few other options thousands of feet in the air, but I wouldn't purchase it on the ground. 3.0/5.0
