A while ago (ok, a long freaking while ago), Foodbuzz offered its Featured Publishers a free sample of Quaker’s new True Delights granola bars to try. Hey, I’m all about trying new stuff, so I was game. The True Delights come in three flavors: Honey Roasted Cashew Mixed Berry, Dark Chocolate Raspberry Almond, and Toasted Coconut Banana Macadamia Nut. In general, all three had large pieces of nuts, which is a definite plus, and they all had a nice, chewy texture. Here are my thoughts on each one:
Honey Roasted Cashew Mixed Berry – It had large pieces of cashews and dried berries (cranberries and cherries) and had a mapley (Is that a word?) flavor. Overall, it was a pretty good bar.
Dark Chocolate Raspberry Almond – It had large pieces of almonds and chunks of dark chocolate. There were pieces of dried raspberry interspersed throughout the bar, but the bar itself didn’t really have much raspberry flavor. Not bad, but not my favorite.
Toasted Coconut Banana Macadamia Nut – It had large pieces of macadamia nuts and flakes of coconut. It also had a nice banana flavor, not fake tasting like some banana flavored products. This was my favorite bar of the three.
These bars were pretty good! They’d make a nice snack or dessert. Quaker is offering a free sample and a coupon for $1.00 off the purchase of a box of True Delights here: http://www.quakertruedelights.com/. So sign up today and get your own free sample to try!
