My wife and I continually like to try different brands of food, flavors, etc...Granola bars are no exception. Our favorite so far has been the Nature Valley "Sweet & Salty Nut" granola bars w/ Almonds. They are head and shoulders above the competition. And at 160-calories per bar, they aren't overly poor in nutrition.
But what I have failed to realize until the point of typing this review, is that they have other Sweet & Salty combinations. I didn't realize this until I was searching Google for a picture to attach to this review. I came across their "Peanut" and "Cashew" version. I am really looking forward to trying the Cashew style.
I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking for a great tasting granola bar. It combines both the salty flavor of the nuts, and the sweet taste of almond butter. It's a perfect balance for the taste buds.
I don't usually buy fruit flavored cereal because of the artificial taste, but when I was picking up my Chocolate Cheerios at the store, I noticed the bright yellow boxes of Banana Nut Cheerios. I wasn't tempted to try it until I saw that the box said "Flavored with Real Bananas and Natural Banana Flavor". So I looked at the ingredients and sure enough, banana puree was listed, along with natural almond flavor. I was sold. Well, at least I was willing to give it a try.
When I opened the box, I immediately noticed the pleasant smell, not artificial at all, so that was a good start. When I tasted it, the first thing that came to mind was banana nut bread. I continued to eat the cereal right out of the box until I realized half of it was already gone! I then poured some in a bowl and added milk. I enjoyed it that way, too. Then I got the idea to add some chocolate Cheerios, and that made it even better! Either way, Banana Nut Cheerios is a winner if you like banana flavor without an artificial taste.
This cereal has 100 calories per 3/4 cup serving, with 9 grams of sugar and 1g total fat. I will continue to buy this mostly for snacking. It is definitely sweet enough to satisfy a sweet tooth while still being low in calories, fat and sugar.
I hope you'll try Banana Nut Cheerios and enjoy it as much as I did.
I opened a new box of Fiber One, the plastic pouch was air tight, I poured the cereal, added milk, sat down to eat and watch TV, it tasted funny so I looked closer. There were hundreds of little brown bugs floating and swimming in the milk!! I had eaten 3 bites, this pissed me off and I threw it out. If I don't get sick, I'll be more observant before eating! If I do, General Mills will hear from my lawyer! Quality control is not what it used to be.
MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA -- I love the rolls made by General Mills listed under Pillsbury. Both the Orange Sweet rolls and the Cinnamon rolls are a favorite of my family. I buy them regularity. Today I went to bake some orange sweet rolls and upon opening the container it blew up. The dough was gooey and the icing was running over the dough. I checked the date because I would expect to see that if the product was out dated. The date was October 24, 2009.
I'm enclosing the code msg23 23:254. I hope no one else has this problem.
NEWBURY PARK, CALIFORNIA -- The coupon say only good in American but then half of it is printed in Spanish. This is America and I am tired of hearing broadcasting in stores in Spanish and then this, I will no longer buy your products and will also encourage others to do the same. All you want is the almighty dollar so maybe American citizens can hit you in the wallet
