Being a long-time consumer of granola bars in all forms, it is an understatement to say I was surprised to notice a new concept from Quaker. As I was walking through my local supermarket the other day, I was casually perusing the granola bars and noticed that they have recently debuted the Chewy Snackwich. Baffled at the notion of a granola bar sandwich, of course I immediately had to grab a couple of boxes and try them out, so I can let you fine folks know my thoughts.
Unless you live in a hole in the ground, you are probably aware of the Quaker Company. They’ve been spreading the good word of oatmeal since 1877, and in the past decade or so have been branching out considerably to compete with other snack giants such as Frito Lay. Since it’s that time of year when lots of folks are looking to be a little healthier, I wanted to explore a couple of their snack products and see what they had to offer those of us who don’t want the term “healthy snack” to be an oxymoron.
