Nature Valley-General Mills Informative - Nature Valley Roasted Nut Crunch Bars

Review by Alain on 2011-10-17
MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA -- Last night I wanted something for a snack that was sweet, but reasonably healthy, as well. The Nature Valley Almond Crunch bar was satisfying, just a bit sweet and not as high in calories and sugar as something like a slice of cake or a regular candy bar. They aren't perfect (nothing that taste good is, in my opinion), but they are better than some of the things I used to indulge in, like cheesecake or sugar coated almonds. The almond crunch I had was about 190 calories, 180 mg. sodium (recommended daily allowance for me is around 1,500 mg daily), 0 mg. cholesterol, 6 grams sugar and 13 grams of fat. It's a tasty snack and one that I can have with a minimum of guilt. If you like nuts and want something that's a bit more healthy for a snack, you'll like these!

That sounds like an excellent snack! There are a lot of healthy alternatives out there now, and they are tastier than they used to be. I sometimes snack on cereal like chocolate Frosted Mini Wheats right out of the box. It's not as good as cookies but there's less guilt.

Nature Valley has a Sweet & Salty bar that is delicious as well. Good review!

Thanks for sharing, I'll try those out! Cinnamon Cheerios are my go-to snack.

Cinnamon Cheerios are great for snacking, too!

Nature Valley has been around a long time. I think they made the first granola cereal and bars. Other companies eventually jumped on board. Bars are now extremely popular, with lots of varieties to choose from.
