Taste Test!

I was excited when I got a text from Andy today saying that a package from foodbuzz came in the mail! I was sitting in my advanced creative writing class wondering what they could have possibly sent me. I tend to be forgetful when I'm sick (yeah sinus pressure what? I can hear my voice echoing in my head whenever I talk!!!) anyway I completely forgot that earlier this month, I signed up to taste test these new bars from Quaker. What a nice surprise! They sent us 6 bars. 2 of each flavor.

Quaker True Delights come in
Honey Roasted Cashew Mixed Berry (Which I sampled tonight)
Toasted Coconut Banana Macadamia Nut (Andy’s sample)
Dark Chocolate Raspberry Almond
These bars are 140 calories and 3 grams of fiber! Great for a quick snack. I think they are perfect for me to eat in my car on the way to school.

Here is my bar. Tastes amazing…every bite has honey roasted cashews, berries and granola. What more could I want?

See how it’s loaded with goodness? YUM. Dried cranberries perhaps? I didn’t notice any other berries but it’s possible that I’m completely crazy! I will eat these again and again. I bet a granola bar would taste like heaven with some non-fat vanilla yogurt. Or crumbled over oatmeal? The possibilities are truly endless.

I will give Andy the laptop now so he can tell you about his bar experience.

Hello! Welcome to part 2 of the Quaker True Delights sample. I am Andy. As Amanda mentioned I tried the Toasted Coconut Banana Macadamia Nut bar.
So, as you can see there is dried, shaved coconut on top. I am not a huge fan of coconut, but this was good. I would prefer smaller pieces of the actually coconut, but it goes well with the flavor of banana. Speaking of which, you know what artificial banana flavor tastes like? Awful. It tastes like awful. This, however, had dried banana pieces and was subtle and delicious. The bar was not overly sweet or overly chewy. It was moist and tasty.
Notice how I have not mentioned the Mac Nut yet? Well, that is because there was all of 1 on my bar. That makes me sad. After vacationing in Hawaii the past 2 summers, I have grown fond of the mac nut. Why advertise it being a Macadamia Nut bar if you only get one. I am sure the next bar will have 43 nuts and make me look silly. There is a great scene in Casino with Robert Deniro where he rips a pastry chef a new one because one blueberry muffin is chock full of blueberry goodness and another has a scant few. I feel like this. Where are my mac nuts?
That is the only real complaint. Like I said, coconut is not my favorite and I would probably prefer the other flavors of this product over this one, I am sure there are a great many people who love banana and coconut and I do suggest you try it. If you find more nuts, send them my way. Please?

I just got my bars in the mail today. My daughter really liked the choc/raspberry one. I have my eye on the coconut one because I love anything with coconut. Love those freebies.
