New Quaker Crispy Oat Bars Review

Yesterday, I ventured into Target to buy...snacks of course! I was on the hunt for Hostess Chocolate Cake with Creamy Filling and Newton's Fruit Crisps (Apple Cinnamon), but sadly, they were out of the fruit crisps. So, this new Quaker Crispy Oat Bars (strawberry) caught my attention. Next best thing i thought and less expensive than Newton's Fruit Crisps. Only $2.04. 

When I bit into it, i was expecting -- "Crispy" as they advertised. Yes, it is slightly crunchy, but not that satisfying crispy crunch that I was looking for.  It tasted more like crumbly oat bars to me. The flavor was just okay. Thankfully, not too sweet as many of those other fruit bars on the market. At only 100 calories a pop with all that fiber, its ok...but not my ideal snack. Moving on....

I personally prefer the new Kellogg's Strawberry Fruit Crisps (reviewed).

Snack Rating: 2 stars
Would I buy it again?: No

When hiking with my family my sister provided us with the quaker oat snack. We found them to be satisfying and delicious. We've hunted for them for 2 months and finally discovered them at Target last week. We find them a deliciously satisfying healthy treat.

Thanks for the comment, even if its a different opinion than mine. I'm sure some people love these bars. :)
