The pros: Trader Joe's Organic Chocolate Chip Granola Bars is an on the go snack bar that’s organic and full of fiber.
The cons: Texture. This bar wasn’t chewy at all. I found it to be quite hard and the bar was very tiny.
The verdict: For $2.49 this bar was a disappointment. It looks like another more famous granola bar, but it’s taste is completely different. This was crisp and hard to chew on. The taste was the expected granola with chocolate chips.
Not one flavor stood out or made me say "wow." I was hoping for a soft and chewy bar. The bars I tried were almost stale in terms of texture where I had to chew quite a bit. Worst of all, this was one of the smallest granola bars I’ve seen in a long time. If you are feeling like a snack, this probably isn’t the 100 calorie bar to reach for. It’s about half the size of a Bic pen in length.
There are better items to reach for in the snack aisle at Trader Joe’s. The fact that this product is organic seems to be the main selling point here. While it’s a new product and organic, there are better tasting ones out there. So while it's not inedible, it's not wonderful either and I won't be buying this again.
