Review: Carnation Breakfast Essentials Chocolate Nutrition Bar

Free samples, free samples free samples...I LOVE them and you know that.  Today's review is another free sample that I honestly don't even remember how I signed up for.  I don't know if it was Facebook, a mailing list or what, but my mailbox was blessed with this Carnation Breakfast Essentials Chocolate Nutrition Bar.  This one clocks in at 1.76 ounces with 200 calories and ten grams and as a major tagline, Carnation has tagged with one as having twice the calcium of regular six ounce serving of yogurt.  Woo-hoo...I guess.

Upon looking at the wrapper, I knew that there wouldn't be a lot to look at here.  It's a soy crisp interior that is coated in chocolate.  Pretty basic.  I will admit that there was one thing that creeped up on me with no warning though...this was bound together by peanut butter!  I had no inclination, based on the product name, that would be happening and once I found out that was the case, the prospect of this bar started to excite me which was good since I fully expected to be bored by how basic this bar seemed like it would be.

As I bit excitedly into this (knowing there was peanut butter in here), I was met with a mildly sweet and dense flavor of peanut butter that was then coated with some additional sweetness and decadence of melting chocolate.  The bar itself was kind of crunchy like these rice crisp bars tend to be, but the combination of sticky peanut butter and melting chocolate made it kind of a gummy chew that was fun to go through.  I say it was fun because that peanut butter and chocolate flavor combination made if fun because it was perfectly balanced and worked completely in unison with each other.

Buy It or Fly By It?  I fully expected this to be a blah review, but after eating this and subsequently typing this review, I am absolutely craving another one of these right now.  If typing about something makes you crave it, it's glaringly apparent that product should get a BUY IT rating.  Carnations new foray with these Breakfast Essentials is a positive one in this respect and if you see this laying around in your store, definitely grab it off the shelf.
