Review: Kellogg's Special K Moments Dreamy Coconut Indulgent Snack Bites

I touched on these new Indulgent Snack Bites in a prior review and since I do everything in pairs, I figured today was as good of a day as any to knock out another Kellogg's Special K review by taking a look at this box of eight Kellogg's Special K Moments Dreamy Coconut Indulgent Snack Bites that I was able to pick up in the same sale as the previous box at Meijer for $2.50.  Each bite is 0.56 ounces and comes in a very belt friendly 70 calories per bite.  I won't even bother to touch on the protein total, because honestly, it's not really worth it with a product like this.

Being that these are part of the same Indulgent Snack Bites product line, it should come as no surprise that they contain the same basic composition as the last.  A "creamy" base layer, which in this case is chocolate that is then topped with that crisp rice mix that is intermixed with coconut shards.  That is then topped with more chocolate on top in a swirl-type of pattern.  It had a faint smell of both chocolate and coconut and in a weird, roundabout way reminded me a bit of an Almond Joy candy bar.

In terms of the flavor, it wasn't quite like the Almond Joy candy bar because the coconut flavor in this was pretty weak and wasn't particularly sweet.  It was certainly noticeable, but it didn't have the pop that I've come to expect and like out of coconut flavored products.  The rice crisp mix was soft and chewy as I'd expect and the chocolate provided a little bit of an "indulgent" quality in the fact that it melted over the mix.  Outside of that, this was a pretty basic combination.

Buy It or Fly By It?  It was a pretty basic combination and it was a pretty basic flavor too.  While it wasn't my favorite product I've ever eaten (perhaps my expectations were a bit too high) and definitely was not dreamy as the name would imply, it certainly was an edible one and did the job as a semi-indulgent snack.  Because it was able to do its job in an acceptable fashion, I'll give this a BUY IT rating.  The Caramel Pretzel Bliss version of these new snack bites was the better of the two, in my opinion, but this was was certainly no shrinking violet.
