t's a close call, but if you're someone who eats breakfast in transit, Kashi Granola Bars have an edge over both the Nutrigrain too-sweet entries and the crumbly Nature Valley competitors. Neither a treat nor a treatment, Kashi Granola bars are light and just right--a way to get started without either residual guilt over a 7 A.M. candy bar or aversion to grandma's recommended fiber remedy. One warning: they go down easy, so don't take more than a single one with you in the car (or you could wind up scarfing down all six bars between traffic lights). Also, Amazon ships these three-buck packages in a generous-sized box, which may strike some consumers as ecologically irresponsible (wish I'd saved these boxes for a recent move of my mother-in-law. I think I ended up paying more for comparable new ones than the cost of the granola bars).

I have searched high and low for anything that would satisfy my sweet tooth and chocolate cravings without a ton of fat and sugar. Well I am now addicted to these. I LOVE THEM. I have two a day at least - bad days 3 - very satisfying - feel full afterwards. With a glass of skim milk is a great snack. Dropped all candy snacks and other bars - having just these for my snacks - and I've lost 22 lbs - and I do not exercise. I couldn't be happier. If you have chocolate cravings or crave snacks - even late at night - you have got to try these. This is my only review ever - only time I felt so strong about something that I took the time to do it. Hope you all enjoy as much as I do. I have them delivered monthly from Amazon automatically for a better price - with free shipping.

Flavor Name: Dark Mocha AlmondSize Name: 6-Count Bars (Pack of 6)
Pros:
Great mocha taste that doesn't overpower other flavors.
Lots of dark chocolate chips to satisfy chocolate cravings.
One bar is very filling and satisfying.
Lots of protein and fiber.
Made with whole grains.
Contains no high fructose corn syrup, or artificial ingredients.
Very little sugar.
Contains whole or nearly whole almonds versus little pieces.

Cons:
More expensive than some other granola bars, but very much worth it.

Overall:
I'd recommend these bars to anyone who enjoys the flavor of mocha. I love these, they taste oh so good.

These are my new favorite. I have always liked Kashi's Crunchy granola bars but had never been a fan of their chewy varieties until now. It is in general a very satisfying bar. Just a hint of coffee, not too sweet and of course dark chocolate. I love them for breakfast or a light snack.

At 130 calories, 6 grams of protein and 3.5 grams of fat, this is a guilt-free treat. This is not your usual soft, chewy, sugary granola bar; this is for the dark chocolate lover, the cocoa flavor intensified by the addition of coffee, a trick that every gourmet cook knows. Kashi's "Seven Whole Grains" which include "hard red wheat"--not gluten free, sorry!) add 4 grams of fiber and a satisfying chewy crunchiness. This particular flavor is hard to find. Often I am greeted by empty shelves, so I am glad that I could find them here and set up a regular shipment! And by the way, these were part of my recent 28 pound weight loss. They certainly helped fight the cravings for the dark-chocolate and almond confections that are my downfall!

These granola bars are pretty good and healthy for you, but they are personally my least favorite out of the three granola bars that Kashi makes. I would recommend the Trail Mix or the Honey Flax Almond ones over these, but these are still an excellent choice.

Flavor Name: Dark Mocha AlmondSize Name: 6-Count Bars (Pack of 6)
The first thing that drew me to these was the terrific combination of dark chocolate, a coffee element, and almonds. I realize that not all tastes and/or ingredients one might like independently would necessarily taste great together, but I knew that the combination of these 3 ingredients could 'make magic happen'. :)

An ingredient profile is a great start, and includes the fact that for this product, the '3 stars of our show' :) were not accompanied by crap (which is very important to me, especially given 'how' I intended to use this product), but the nutrition profile would 'make or break' whether, and if so how much, I might end up eating these granola bars.

The most surprising things (and positively so) about this product's nutrition profile, in my opinion, are as follows --

* Each bar is only 130 calories (and while that might be 'too' low for anyone intending to use this product as a meal replacement, one could eat two of them and still be below what so many other snack bars and 'healthy snacks' come in at, calorie-wise) (besides, one can always eat more of something that is low in calories, versus more readily 'cutting back' on something that is high in calories [and especially if the higher calorie item does not involve much volume, or an otherwise satisfyingly 'full' feeling after eating a 'cut back' version of such]).

* Calories are one thing, but it's the breakdown of what those calories are comprised of, that makes 'the' difference, for me -- and each of these granola bars has 6g of protein, 4g of fiber (3g of which are insoluble), 1.5g of monounsaturated fat, only 0.5g of saturated fat, only 90mg of sodium, and what positively stunned me was that each bar has only 6g of sugar -- THAT is remarkable, and is of benefit not only in and of itself, but is so important to those who must pay special attention to their blood sugar, including those who contend with insulin resistance.

Ingredients and nutrition are important, but taste ends up being a kind of 'trump card' -- and, thankfully, these taste good!

They have a texture that is kind of 'in between' that of a thicker-textured 'rice cake' (sort of), and a rice krispie treat (albeit with noticeably less of the 'tack-like' aspect found with [marshmallow 'glue' -rendered] rice krispie treats).

These granola bars don't 'feel' 'heavy' in the stomach (and yet can satisfy hunger) -- and what this 'lighter in the stomach' aspect allows for, importantly, for my needs, is that these are one of the only 'foods' that I can eat during a workout (sometimes, if I haven't eaten enough before a workout, or otherwise 'push' past what I'd originally intended, activity-wise, and find that I need a few more calories, these fit the bill [and sometimes it's just a bite or two, taken while mid-workout, but given the nutrient profile, it makes a difference (and keeps me from getting lightheaded, or otherwise not having enough energy to engage in physical activity)]).

This product has now replaced what previously used to be the only granola bar I would eat (Nature Valley Oats 'n Honey Granola Bars). Additionally, a 'bonus', when compared to the Nature Valley granola bars, is that these Kashi bars don't 'crumble' -- not only when eating them, but also with respect to their 'survivability' when in a purse or gym bag -- the Kashi bars stay intact (whereas the Nature Valley granola bars would tend to get broken, and/or crumble [and could make for an annoying mess]).

I now keep a few of these with me practically at all times, and eat them while 'on the go', when running errands, or when running late and needing something to 'bridge the gap' until my next meal.

All in all, I am so glad that the folks at Kashi came out with this product.

I've decided to try and be as natural as I can be. That of course means eating lots of fruits and veggies, but I still love to snack. These are very good, nothing artificial and a good peanut buttery taste, not too sweet. I would recommend these definitely.

I find other cereal/granola bars way too sweet, especially if they use artificial sweeteners. These bars are exactly what I like. A good amount of fiber, just enough sweetness, and not overloaded with fat and calories. I was buying the "fiber one" bars but they were still too sweet. I hope Amazon finds a way to replenish stock before my 10 boxes run out. I keep sharing them to let other folks give them a try.

The Kashi Granola Bars that I purchased recently are a wonderful product. They are satisfying as a snack or breakfast, when you are on the run. They also come in handy as part of a daily lunch. They are chewy and full of peanuts and very filling. Great way to start a day!!
