Kashi Peanutty Dark Chocolate Layered Granola bars review

School started about a month back in our neck of the woods and this year was a little different for us,because my elder son, who turned 5 in July , started kindergarten. With all the excitement that that entailed,came the task of coming up with creative snacks that are appealing to a 5 year old as well as nutritious.
So when , I got the opportunity of sampling Kashi's Peanutty Dark Chocolate Layered granola bars with my Mom's Group,I jumped at it and was really glad that we got selected. All the moms in my group have school going children between the ages of 4 - 6, so I knew that they all would welcome the opportunity too.

When the samples came in , my son was the most excited !! He wanted to take it to school in his snack box everyday and I didnt have to think twice about it either !
We got sent a huge bag of samples so there were plenty to share with the moms in my group.

A few things that I liked about these bars :
* Each granola bar has 7 grams of fiber and 4 grams of protein, which is good for a snack.
* The Kashi brand is known for the quality of the ingredients used in their products.
* The ingredient list is not too long and has mostly identifiable things in it !
* The bars are readily available in all major grocery stores.( These bars usually retail for $3.89)
* These bars are pretty portable, of course if left out in heat, the chocolate layer can melt slightly making for a messy snack, but nothing that a wipe wont take care of :-)

Obviously my son liked the chocolate covered granola bar, but when I gave it a taste test, it more than passed muster. The granola bar is slightly chewy, not overly sweet. The chocolate layer is pretty thick too,giving the whole bar a taste similar to a chocolate bar. It is pretty satisfying too.
Its a great snack to have in your bag while on the move or at home when the kids are hungry and the next meal is still some time away.
