Recently my family got to try out the Nature Valley Nut Crunch bars, both the almond and the peanut variety. I was surprised when I got a look at these bars. I expected them to be made like other granola-type bars, with oats or rice or other lower cost filler ingredients in them. But these truly are NUT bars, (plus enough sweetener to hold the nuts together, of course). The ingredients for the almond variety are almonds, peanuts, sunflower seeds, sugar, corn syrup, and salt. I prefer chewy granola bars more than crunchy ones– I actually handed mine off to a kid who I knew would enjoy it more. But for people who like their snack bars crunchy, I think these are great. We don’t buy snack bars very often– mostly just to eat in the car on trips — but I might snag a box or two of these for my ‘crunch’ lovers next time we go on a trip, because I think these are probably better for you than the average granola bar.
