Review: Quaker Chewy Yogurt Blueberry Granola Bar

Sometimes I think I should re-name this site to Quaker Food Dude with the amount of Quaker products, including Chewy bars, that I have reviewed and also have stored up in unposted reviews.  When I really look at it, it is absurd.  But, if Quaker continues to churn out products that I am interested in, then I will continue to review them.  Since I had a coupon and was interested in another one of their new(ish) products, I picked up a box of five of these Chewy Yogurt Blueberry Granola bars on sale for $2.00 at Meijer.  Each bar is 1.23 ounces (nearly 50% bigger than a standard 0.84 ounce Chewy bar) and has 150 calories.

As you can see from the picture above, this bar consists of Quaker's standard granola mix with several blueberry pieces mix in piled on top of a vanilla yogurt base.  It's a bigger bar than the standard Chewy bar, but oddly, it feels less dense when you are holding it.  Not a good or bad thing either way, just an observation.

There's really not a lot to say about this one as it is pretty much what you'd expect from a Chewy bar, except that the additions are blueberry and yogurt.  The vanilla yogurt adds a cooling component to the relatively crunchy granola and the small blueberry bits add some slight, but not overpowering tang and sweetness.  Actually, yogurt tones the blueberry tang down quite a bit and this pretty much ends up being pretty standard.  Not a bad thing, but also not the greatest taste ever either.

Buy It or Fly By It?  This addition to the Quaker product line get a BUY IT rating.  It gets this rating not because it is awesome or so wonderfully tasting, but instead because it is a nice safe option for breakfast or a snack.  It's not going to repulse you and it's not going to make you think you are in heaven.  It will fill a craving though and for that reason, it's worth a purchase and a try.
