I don't think I've had more polarizing responses to a particular manufacturer's products than I have to Kashi products. There are some products that I have genuinely despised, while there are others that I have loved. That typically hasn't happened with most manufacturers on this blog (that I can immediately recall), so it is worth noting that as I dive into another Kashi review after a long vacation from their reviews with this box of six Kashi Dark Chocolate Coconut Layered Granola Bars that I picked up on sale at Meijer for $3.00. Each bar comes in at 1.1 ounces and has 120 calories with four grams of protein.

In the history of this blog, I've touched on several veggie burgers but all of them up to this point have been MorningStar Farms products. Today will be my first "adventure" into Boca Burgers territory as I take a look at this Boca Bruschetta Tomato Basil Parmesan Veggie Patties that I picked up as a box of four veggie burgers at Kroger for $3.00. Each patty comes in at 71 grams and has 90 calories with a solid thirteen grams of protein. It's also only two Weight Watchers points per serving.

I, like most people, enjoy some nourishment from time-to-time so that makes the subject of today's review right up my alley. My gosh...I think my introductions are getting cheesier with each passing day, but sometimes it's tough to come up with something fresh for each individual post. So, I'll be adding to my Kellogg's Special K review catalog with today's review of this Kellogg's Special K Nourish Lemon Twist Bar. I picked this one up at Kroger for $1.33 and the bar itself is 1.58 ounces with 160 calories and eight grams of protein.

I've touched on a couple of belVita flavors previously and I've had a hit and a miss. So, my expectations going into trying out this package of four belVita Golden Oat Breakfast Biscuits that I picked up on sale at Marsh for $1.00. This specific package weighed in at 1.76 ounces and the four biscuits combined for 230 calories and four grams of protein. It was made of nineteen delicious (their words) grams of whole grain as well, if that is your cup of tea.

I can honestly say that I was stunned by what a positive experience my first Premier Protein bar review gave me. The bar itself was almost like an Andes candy and I enjoyed it quite a bit. So, with that positive experience on my mind, I dug into this Premier Protein Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Bar with hopes for more of the same. I picked this one up at Kroger on sale for $1.33 and it comes in at a bulky 2.5 ounces with a big load of 290 calories and a hulking thirty grams of protein.

So apparently spice is only allowed to be used as a flavor characteristic in the fall to warm people up. I don't necessarily agree, but whatever. It's another striving for a fall product that leads me to another review of the upcoming and coming Sunbelt Bakery products with this box of ten Sunbelt Bakery Harvest Spice Chewy Granola Bars that I picked up on sale at Marsh for $2.99. Each bar in the box is 0.952 ounces (how precise!) and is 110 calories with one gram of protein, which would ordinarily be laughable, but since this is just a tiny snack bar, it's really all that notable.

Cookies and cream. Yum. Great intro, eh? Seriously, I've hit on Promax bars here on the blog before, but it has been quite a while since I did so. One thing I've always loved about these bars is the tagline that they carry on the wrapper proclaiming them as a "Great Tasting Energy Bar." I think that there lack of hubris is beyond amusing, so I got a chuckle as I grabbed this Promax Cookies 'n Cream Energy Bar off the shelf at Kroger for $1.67. Each bar comes in at 2.64 ounces and is 270 calories with twenty grams of protein.
