Kashi TLC Chewy Chocolate Granola Bars
Kashi TLC Chewy Chocolate Granola Bars
Offered by MYLE Network
Price: $17.15

5.0 out of 5 stars Yum!, August 1, 2015
A nutritionist recommended Kashi chocolate and almond granola bars to me. I used to think you shouldn't eat chocolate when you're dieting or trying to eat healthy. Not true! Research shows a bit of dark chocolate everyday is good for your heart. It's hard to believe these delicious bars are that good for you! They taste a tad sinful, but are only 140 calories. When you are craving chocolate or something sweet (like a dessert), these are a great alternative. You don't need to feel deprived when you are dieting with these bars. Desserts taste good, but often have you feeling like you ate something not good for you. You feel heavy afterwards. These bars won't leave your stomach feeling that way.

They have 6g of protein, 160mg ALA Omega-3, are 16% of your fiber, fairly low in sugar at 7g - the nutritionist said try to stay under 8g for cereal- and low in sodium at 5% of your DV, They are also low in fat at 6% DV. It's amazing something so tasty is this healthy. They are naturally sweetened with rich dark chocolate, wildflower honey with NO high fructose corn syrup. They have 7 whole grains and chia. The 6g of protein come from whole almonds and crispy soy grahams. They have a touch of sea salt.

These are my favorite kashi bars. I love to put a couple in my purse when running errands or going to a meeting. They are a healthy and surprising delicious snack during the day. You can really taste the big squares of dark chocolate, the almonds and the touch of sea salt - a mouth-watering mix. Congratulations to Kashi for creating something this delicious which is so healthy.

1.0 out of 5 stars Contain High Maltose Corn Syrup, August 1, 2015
These bars are tasty but include high maltose corn syrup - listed as their second ingredient. If I'd know that, wouldn't have eaten them. There are healthier bars out there like Kashi bars with almonds and dark chocolate and NO corn syrup. Would skip these until the company omits the corn syrup.

Ingredients
Whole Grain Oats, High Maltose Corn Syrup, Raisins, Almonds, Roasted Peanuts, Sugar, Rice Flour, Chicory Root Extract, Fructose, Cranberries, Canola Oil, Maltodextrin, Vegetable Glycerin, Soy Lecithin, Salt, Barley Malt Extract, Baking Soda, Natural Flavor, Mixed Tocopherols Added to Retain Freshness.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as Good as MEET THE PARENTS, But Still Fun, July 31, 2015
Great cast - not as good as Meet the Parents, but still quite funny. Liked seeing Barbara Streisand and Dustin Hoffman in their roles. Cast looks like they're having a good time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love These Non-Stick Silicone Baking Cups!, July 31, 2015
Used these tonight to make chocolate banana muffins with NO sugar. These silicone baking cups are fantastic. Once the muffins cooled, they popped out perfectly! Features to like about these baking cups:

* non-stick

* easy wash - handwash or put in top of dishwasher

* eco-conscious - never use paper liners again!

* BPA free

* gorgeous vivid colors - kids will like them

* use alone or pop in muffin tin

* multi-purpose - can use for other purposes, too as for example, melting butter in microwave, opening a bottle cap etc.

The sugar-free banana chocolate muffins turned out delicious! (recipe below) These would make a great gift for a baker of muffins and cupcakes.

Skinny Double Chocolate Banana Muffins

Ingredients:
3 bananas
¼ cup of honey
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
' cup of greek yogurt or lowfat plain yogur
' cup of coconut oil, melted or 1/3 cup apple sauce

2 tablespoons of cocoa powder
1' cup of white whole wheat flour
½ teaspoon of sea salt
1 teaspoon of baking soda
' cup of mini chocolate chips

Using a fork mix until combined.
Add in cocoa powder, white whole wheat flour, salt, and baking soda. Using a spatula, mix until wet and dry ingredients are completely combined!
Fold in the mini chocolate chips.
Line each muffin tin with a cupcake liner (or spray with pam so muffins don't stick to pan if not using liner).
Fill each muffin tin ¾ of the way full.
Bake for 15-17 minutes or until done. Cool a tad and serve.

4.0 out of 5 stars DeNiro's Facial Expressions Star in this Movie, July 29, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is worth watching just to view DeNiro's facial expressions. Ben Stiller is amusing as well. Fun plot, and cohesive story-line. Watched it again for the second time with my son and we laughed through it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Can You Eat One?, July 24, 2015
If you like crunchy, chocolate oat flavor, you might love these bars. I tried one tonight for the first time. These are good. They do tend to crumble when you bite into them. 2 bars have 12g of sugar. However, if you eat one bar, 6g of sugar isn't too bad. It's like a cup of Cheerios. And only 95 calories. A nutritionist said try to stay under 7-8g of sugar in a bowl of cereal. You can have 50 added grams of sugar a day says the World Health Organization.

Here's the ingredients in these bars:

Whole Grain Oats, Sugar, Canola Oil, Dark Chocolate Pieces (Chocolate Liquor, Sugar, Soy Lecithin, Natural Flavor), Honey, Yellow Corn Flour, Soy Flour, Brown Sugar Syrup, Cocoa, Salt, Natural Flavor, Soy Lecithin, Baking Soda. Contains Soy, Almond, Peanut And Pecan Ingredients.

These are low in sodium 6%DV and 3g of Fiber. Zero cholesterol, 10% Carbohydrate DV.

So, if you are watching your sugar and calorie count, these are fine as an occasional snack if you can eat just one.

Steady beat - solid but not exciting. Taylor has better songs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy Protective Sleeve for Students & Workers, July 23, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a remarkable protective sleeve for laptops and Chrome books. Belkin claims it's designed for school or "active learning environments. They constructed it so you could keep your laptop or chrome book IN the sleeve. What you will notice first is the stiff protective nylon exterior which looks almost waffle-like which minimizes damage. The dark black exterior appears that it will repel dirt and might be water resistant, too.

Other features the company describes to like about this sleeve:

* one-zip auto wake design that allows full access to laptop or chrome book when open
* full screen visibility with "stay put" features including micro-gel and corner screen mount clips
* slim profile - fits easily in backpacks
* full tilt-back design allows for all screen positioning angles
* comfortable carrying handle
* open access to all device ports, switches, and UIs

There aren't pockets to store cables etc,. but supposed company decided slim profile was more important. It's fairly light-weight for its sturdiness. If your device fits snugly into it, think you will like it.
