Now that I have a temporary camera to photograph with I feel like I can do a proper review of the New Quaker True Delight Bars I received as part of the FoodBuzz Tastemaker Program.
I’m sure you have seen these bars popping up all over the blogosphere this week, but here’s a quick run through, as quoted from Quaker.
You’re invited to be delighted with the new Quaker True Delights Granola Bars.
Made with only premium, delicious ingredients, these granola bars are an indulgent combination of real fruit, whole nuts and dark chocolate, mixed into wholesome honey-drizzled Quaker oats.
Enticing pieces of fruit, such as gently dried bananas and sweet raspberries, are nestled together with large macadamia nuts, cashews or toasted almonds and chunks of 45 percent cacao premium dark chocolate.
At 140 calories, True Delights are a wholesome granola bar that can be enjoyed everyday.
Well, with a product description like that why wouldn’t I want to dive right in?
The bars come in three different flavors
- Dark Chocolate Raspberry Almond
- Honey Roasted Cashew Mixed Berry
- Toasted Coconut Banana Macadamia Nut
I am very disappointed the Toasted Coconut Macadamia Nut version contains banana, otherwise it would have been my favorite to try.
So instead I had the Honey Roasted Cashew Mixed Berry as my snack this morning.
At first taste this bar was very sweet, but the second bite did not seem as sweet as the first. As promised there were whole cashew halves and bits of dried fruit integrated in the bar, which I enjoyed.
All in all it was not a bad bar and I would probably purchase again if it wasn’t for my overflowing inventory of Kashi Bars at the moment. I can’t wait to try the Dark Chocolate Raspberry Almond version tomorrow. 🙂
Today’s lunch was quick and easy thanks to my well stocked freezer of leftovers. 🙂
I had some defrosted Chickpea Noodle Soup, which was still delish almost a month later.
On the side I dipped some Stacey’s Multigrain Pita Chips in the Lemon Curd Heather sent me.
At first the Lemon Curd was a bit strong to me but with the tiniest of dips with the chips, this stuff rocks. It was perfect on the pitas and I can’t wait to experiment with it further. This would actually be a great addition to cookies. Heather, you baking genius, I challenge you to make a recipe for cookies involving this Lemon Curd and I promise to make and devour it all on my own. 🙂
So, How is your day going? Just think in a couple of hours it will be FRIDAY and then the weekend.. woo hoo!!
