Clif Sierra Trail Mix: $1/Kroger

I am in love. This Clif bar really is like a handful of trail mix, all held together in a tidy lump w/o having a loose ziploc of all of the ingredients bopping around. I … read on …


Larabar Cashew Cookie: $1/Kroger

2 ingredients is impressive. Taste, not so much. I’d rather eat a handful of cashews and dates trail-mix style than a mashed-up Larabar Cashew Cookie. And mine came out of the wrapper in the shape … read on …


Luna Nutz Over Chocolate: $1/Kroger

Why the “z” for plural. It’s like xTreme snacks! “Z” and “X” make everything out-of-this-world! I think, in the packaged food domain, those 2 letters belong on overly-sugary children’s cereal boxes, and maybe w/ other … read on …


Quest Chocolate Brownie: $2.50/Vitamin Shoppe

There are some flavors of Quest bars that are just stand-out rockstars. From everyone who I’ve talked to, Quest Chocolate Brownie is usually across the board a beloved flavor. But the game-changer for it is … read on …

Peeling away the wrapper from this gooey bar didn’t prepare me for how deliciously, sticky sweet it tasted. Ohhh the sticky coating! The plump raisins! The crunchy walnut pieces! I didn’t even consider warming it … read on …


Fiber d’Lish Peanut Chocolate Chip: $1.69/Vitamin Shoppe

I love soft-baked bars, and desperately miss Luna Soft-baked Fiber bars, especially the dark chocolate raspberry one. Fiber D’lish (also known as Fiber Love, Gnu, and I’m not sure what their 1st names were…) were … read on …


Clif Kid Zbar Iced Oatmeal Cookie: $0.69/Kroger

I don’t make any excuse to hide my adoration of Zbars. The size and macros and taste and cost? All outstanding. I couldn’t be happier that Costco now carries bulk boxes of this flavor, along … read on …


Clif Chocolate Brownie: $1/Kroger

Brownie, brownie, brownie, every bar brand has its version of you. The “kid” counterpart to this is the Zbar’s brownie which is WAY better in my opinion. This one just doesn’t taste nearly as good, … read on …
