Review of Kashi Cranberry Walnut Fruit & Grain Bars

Food Review: Kashi Cranberry Walnut Fruit & Grain Bars

Is it odd to count a food brand as one of my best buds? Made with real ingredients, I find tasty Kashi products have become something I rely on, and I stash the company's bars in my purse, desk drawer, or gym bag — they make for great pre or postworkout snack to enjoy. If you're a fan of Kashi's TLC Fruit & Grain bars, check out this new flavor, Cranberry Walnut.

To find out what surprised me about this bar

.

Amazing! Four grams each of fiber and protein, and only 120 calories. It's also pretty low in sodium and sugars, but definitely not low in taste! The bold cranberry flavor is dessert-like, and seriously, I almost felt like I was enjoying a jam-covered cookie instead of a granola bar. I also love the contrast of the soft fruity jam topping with the crunchy chewiness of the granola bar. I am already a huge fan of this flavor, as they have become my new favorite go-to snack. The other flavors are equally as healthy, as you can see from the chart below. Which flavor appeals to you more?

I love the pumpkin ones, but I refuse to ever buy them again. They were so good that I ate three of them as soon as I opened the box. So much for portion control... ha

Oooh... I'm NOT a fan of the Kashi brand... They are owned by Kelloggs, and Kelloggs uses GMO's. Kashi states that while they TRY to use non-GMO sources for their grains, they cannot guarantee that their products are GMO-free. If they would go organic and certify GMO Free, I'd be all over them, as they do look yummy.

Dark Chocolate Coconut is my all time fave.

I have tried the dark chocolate/coconut bar. It's such a nice treat! I actually feel like I'm eating dessert minus the guilt. I agree, it is nice to have a brand you can count on =)

I gave these a try because they had $1 off coupons on them at Target and they were on sale, so I got a box for $2.15. The fruit sticks to the bag and they're really small, but they taste good and they're very healthy. Kashi is a great company. I want to try the other flavors soon, especially the Chocolate Raspberry and DCC.

I'm also a Kashi TLC convert. While I can find bars with less calories, these are so much healthier nutritionally--fiber, protein, and ingredients that you can pronounce! :-) I have the Dark Mocha Almond bars in my cupboard at the moment.

I just tried this bar this weekend and loved it! My favorite is the Dark Chocolate Coconut though.
