REVIEW: Quaker Cinnamon Oatmeal Squares Cereal

Hey, hey, hey, ladies and gents! Are you struggled with a terribly tough choice at breakfast every morning? A choice of "Cereal, or Oatmeal?" A choice that leaves you banging your head against the kitchen stove with your hands tugging on your hair, shouting, "I DON'T KNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW!"
Well, don't have a mental breakdown just yet, ladies and gents. Trust me, a breakfast is not worth the mental examinations. BUT, I'll agree: It IS a tough choice. That's why Quaker has released a breakfast product that gives you the best of both worlds!!! Oatmeal Cinnamon Squares Cereal is THIS product's name, and serving you both oatmeal and cereal is its game.
Although, to be completely honest, I don't really think that was Quaker's intention when marketing this product. They kinda brand it as more of a "Low Cholesterol!" and "Heart Healthy!" and "Diabetes Slayer!" type of cereal. Which was why I wasn't really even looking into trying this cereal until my dad bought it. I mean, come on- a kid like me don't got to eat this for breakfast- a foodstuff that can only be described as "That cereal found in Grandma's cupboards." But since my dad bought this stuff, and since we were all out of my preferred cereals, it was like, "Eh! Why not." So then I gots to reviewing.
A 14.5 oz. box costs around $3.04.

REVIEW: Kashi Chocolate Almond & Sea Salt with Chia Chewy Granola Bars

So, Kashi's had these new Chocolate Almond & Sea Salt granola bars around for awhile (I know, that sentence kinda contradicts itself there), and it seems to have "Made For RiRi" written all over it (Not technically, but still). Sea Salt? I love salty foods! Almonds? They're my favorite nut! Chocolate? I love chocolate!!! (It's not DARK chocolate, but it works). Except for the chia, everything Kashi has put into this bar is making it sound faaaantastic. So I kinda have high hopes for this review! Let's see how it goes.
A 7.4 oz. box with six 1.2 oz. bars costs around $4.09.

REVIEW: Quaker Banana Nut Bread Soft Baked Bars

I like a nice hunk of banana bread every now and again, so it'd make sense for me to buy these Banana Nut Bread Bars from Quaker, right? That's what I thought, but it really was more of an impulsive buy. I mean, I like banana bread, but I like the homemade stuff, not some manufactured junk. Homemade banana bread tastes better and is real easy to make. So I guess I wasn't really thinking. But then again, if you asked me if I felt like making banana bread RIGHT NOW, I'd probably respond with a, "Gee.... I'd LOVE to, butttttt..... I kinda have stuff to do. Like watching videos. About video games. On Youtube."
So as you can see, I have a lot on my plate, and I suppose in the end, it WOULD make sense for me to buy manufactured banana bread!!!
...Ohhhhhh, who am I kidding? I'm just trying to reassure myself...
A 7.4 oz. box with five 1.48 bars costs around $2.69.

REVIEW: Nature Valley Oats 'n Dark Chocolate Protein Crunchy Granola

My previous taste-test of Nature Valley's new protein granola left me and my tummy full of tasty granola deliciousness, so of course I HAD to try another flavor on their line- Oats 'n Honey sounds good and all, but of course my heart belongs to a little ditty titled Oats 'n Dark Chocolate. Not only is it CHOCOLATE, but it's DARK CHOCOLATE! Annnnnd it's full of protein! It's like this granola was made for me!
An 11 oz. bag of granola costs around $3.98.

REVIEW: Frito-Lay's Baked! Flamin' Hot Cheetos

Welcome again to another installment of Sweet and SavoRi's "Chip Kick!" Yaaaaaay! ...You know, have you ever really thought of Cheetos as chips? Honestly now. I mean, despite the fact they're crunchy and greasy, they are FAR from chips. They AREN'T made with potatoes, they AREN'T cut into thin, little slices like potato chips- in fact, they look more like little cheesy clubs. See, seeeee?! Even on the bag in the picture right above, that bag of Cheetos is official labeled as "Cheese Flavored Snacks." NOT. CHIPS. So I guess... Cheetos are just Cheetos... Right?
Well, while you all are off cracking the code on what makes Cheetos part of the "chip" food group, I'll be here reviewing this lightened-up, lower-fat version of the popular snack. I was in line at my school cafeteria hoping to get some flavored Baked Lays or something, but all they really had was these Baked! Flamin' Hot Cheetos or the Original Baked! Lays (yawn), so I went with the former. Besides, it had been FOREVER since I had a bag of Cheetos... even baked ones!  
An 11 oz. bag of chips costs around $3.89.

Review: Kashi Crunchy Granola & Seed Honey Oat Flax Bars

Recently, Kashi's released a whole new line of granola bars with the addition of seeds in them. Well, if you call two flavors a "line", that is. I reviewed one of the flavors so far- the Chocolate Chip Chia. They were a bit seed-like in taste to being with (well, dur-hur... they ARE seed bars), but all in all the taste was yummy and hearty enough to bring me back to try the other kind of new granola bar Kashi has released- their Honey Oat Flax Bars. Whereas the Chocolate Chip Chia Bars were made with... chia (dur), these Honey Oat Flax Bars are made with... flax. Hopefully you all deduced that for yourselves before I had to spell it out!
A 7 oz. box with five, two-bar, 1.4 oz packages costs around $4.09.

REVIEW; Edy's/Dreyer's Slow Churned Mint Cookie Crunch Ice Cream

Well, it's the middle of winter everyone, and you know what that means... ICE CREAM! Yes, ice cream! Freezing cold ice cream for allllllll! I like to eat mine outside in the middle of the night, while the snow is coming down in plumes and I'm in nothing but my pajamas. Just pure fun. Super. But it's even BETTER when you have an icy slushie to accompany you instead. Oh well. I guess this Slow Churned Mint Cookie Crunch ice cream from Edy's/Dreyer's will have to do.
A 1.5 qt.  container of ice cream costs around $3.89.

REVIEW: Kellogg's Special K Sour Cream & Onion Cracker Chips

Next product I'll be reviewing on my newfound chip kick is these Sour Cream & Onion Cracker Chips from Special K. Why Sour Cream & Onion, you may ask? Well, unlike the Honey Barbecue review I posted a little while ago, I did NOT pick this flavor because it had "NEW!" in the title. In fact, I think it's a pretty safe bet to say this is one of the oldest available flavors of the Cracker Chips. I only picked this flavor because sour cream and onion is my downfall potato chip flavor. I can turn up my nose to regular potato chips, or cheddar, or salt & vinegar, but sour cream and onion seems to trip me up more than the rest. So I guess you could say it's my favorite potato chip flavor...? Anyway, a 4 oz. box costs around $2.88.

REVIEW: Subway's New Jalapeno Cheese Bread

Walking into Subway recently, I couldn't help but wondering, "Gee, what will I review now? If only they had a new bread out or something..." And lo and behold, there it was! Subway's Jalapeno Cheese Bread! I couldn't help but pump my fists with joy. Talk about good timing, right? I hadn't even realized Subway had a new bread out already. It seems like just yesterday since I reviewed their Garlic Bread. Gee... does that mean that one's been revoked already? Bye-bye Garlic Bread? Awwwwww.... I really liked their Garlic Bread! This Jalapeno Cheese stuff had better be a suitable replacement, or I'll be maaad...
You can get the Jalapeno Cheese Bread for your Subway sandwich at no additional price.

REVIEW: Kellogg's NutriGrain Chocolatey Crunch Chocolatey Chip Granola Bars

You remember those commercials Kellogg's released for their Fruit Crunch Bars awhile back? You know- the ones with the vampires? Oh yeah, they totally dug those NutriGrain bars. Cuz' that makes sense. Vampires LOVE eating herbivorous foods like fruits and oats. I guess in all seriousness it'd make sense for them to enjoy the Strawberry Parfait flavor, since vampires eat shades of red, but still. That strawberry bar is more of a pinkish hue. AT BEST. So why would vampires be so into these NutriGrain Bars? What is Kellogg's insinuating? Is there some secret ingredient in these that we are unaware of? 
Blood, maybe...?
No, no, that couldn't be- I mean, blood, come on. How could Kellogg's obtain such a thing as blood? It's not like there's gallons upon gallons to be found in every living thing on Earth or anything like that. Yeah, blood, haha- there's no way! That... couldn' Buuuuuuuut...
It does seem a little odd for Kellogg's to just pull the idea of a commercial about vampires out of their heads like that... I mean, the commercial obviously wasn't meant to be FUNNY... So where did the idea for vampires come up from...? Maybe, just maybe...
No, nevermind. There's NO BLOOD in these things. There's not, there's not, there's not.
But just to be on the safe side, I'll try Kellogg's NutriGrain Chocolately Crunch Bars first- you know, the bars NOT advertised in the hidden-message vamp ads.
A 7.4 oz. box with five 1.48 oz. pouches costs around $2.58.

REVIEW: Kashi GoLean Vanilla Graham Clusters Cereal

Kashi GoLean Original is a stand-by cereal in my pantry, on account of the huge amount of protein found in one serving of the stuff.
...Well, admittely, 13g isn't THAT much- but for cereal, that's about as good as it gets.
With 13g of protein, and an admittedly mild enough flavor that you can't accuse any aspect of it to be all that wrong, Kashi Original is a solid cereal. But, but, butttttt... And I mean  DO mean but- sometimes it just gets a little boring. Anything can after awhile, you know. But when you get bored of Kashi's GoLean Original, what other cereal can you turn to for a huge amount of protein and a decent taste? Tell me! What? WHAT???!!! Why, Kashi's GoLean Vanilla Graham Clusters, of course! Just LIKE Kashi's GoLean Original, except with two less grams of protein. And the added taste of vanilla. And graham. And clusters. And the box is blue. And yeah.
A 13.2 oz. box costs around $3.99.

REVIEW: Kellogg's NutriGrain Fruit & Oat Harvest Country Strawberry Bars

Well, looks like I'm on an official quest to review each and every NutriGrain Fruit & Oat Harvest Bar!!! ...Which really isn't hard at all, considering there's only two of them...
So far.
Kellogg's more than likely'll make new Fruit & Oat Harvest Bar flavors, I'm hoping- Maybe a ...Radical Raspberry, or a Grape Goodness? And if you use these names, Kellogg's, I better get a slice of the pie, if you get my drift.
First I tried Kellogg's Blueberry Bliss flavor, and now I'm moving on towards the Country Strawberry. Why did I the blueberry first, may you ask? Well, I like blueberry better than strawberry, plain and simple. The slight tangy, sour undertones of the blueberry just bring more depth to the flavor than the sometimes overly-sweet strawberry can provide. But I don't harbor some strawberry prejudice either, so time to review this Fruit & Oat Harvest Bar's take on the berry.
An 8.8 oz. box with five 1.76 oz. bars costs around $2.50.

REVIEW: Kashi Crunchy Granola & Seed Chocolate Chip Chia Bars

Time for another Kashi review! Feel's like awhile since we've done one on here! (Took me FOREVER to stomach that box of Cherry Dark Chocolate bars... Blargh. I actually had to get my stepsister to eat a couple FOR me).
But, as the seasons change, Kashi consistently and steadily generates a slow stream of new product after new product, resulting in, I'm sure- new profit. Kashi's made crunchy granola bars before- akin to the ones by Nature Valley and such -but these new ones are different on account of them being Granola & Seed. See, even Kashi underlined it, right in the picture of the box up over yonder! And what seed shall you find in the bars I will be reviewing today? CHIA! C-C-C-Chia! I wonder if little sprouts will shoot out of these things if I sprinkle over them with water...
Anyway, a 7 oz. box with five 1.4 oz. bars costs around $4.09.

REVIEW: Kellogg's Special K Honey Barbecue Cracker Chips

For a long while I wasn't very much into chips- it was all about the sweets. I didn't have time for chips- I was too busy reviewing cereal and granola bars and... more cereal. But I've been on a chip kick lately and have been taste-testing a few different varieties of this salty snack. First up for reviewin' is Special K's Honey Barbecue Cracker Chips. They're new, but just became old by food industry standards. I'm serious. One day I'm in the store buying a box of this stuff with "NEW!" plastered all over it and the next I go back into that same snack aisle and all the Honey Barbecue boxes have that NEW taken off. I guess the food world moves much too fast for an average Joe like I...
So then, a 4 oz. box costs around $2.88.

REVIEW: Kellogg's Special K Cookies & Creme Pastry Crisps

My friend was egging me on about how good these Special K Pastry Chips were one time at lunch a few days ago. I wanted to try them, but I knew how small they were, so I thought they wouldn't be worth the cash. But then again, I've been buying up those 90 Calorie Fiber One Brownies all the time lately, and those are exactly the same size as these Pastry Crisps, so I eventually conceded and bought up a box of the flavor that caught my eye the most: Cookies & Creme. I LOVE cookies and cream, in case you didn't know, so I figured this review was gonna be fun. Anyway, a 4.4 oz. box with five 0.88 oz. bars costs around $2.78.

REVIEW: Kellogg's NutriGrain Fruit & Oat Harvest Blueberry Bliss Bar

Sooo... Is it me, or has Kellogg's been releasing an unusual amount of new NutriGrain products lately? For years NutriGrain has been nothing more than a line of commonplace cereal bars- but now they've got these NutriGrain Crunch thingies, and even these super-new Fruit & Oat Harvest Bars as of late. ...Oh yeah, and I guess they had to have released these NutriGrain Waffles sometime in between as well. What's up Kellogg's? NutriGrain not doing so well in the sales market lately? Or is it that they're doing SO well that you wanted to make more varieties to keep things interesting? I'm just curious. I'm also curious to see how these Fruit & Oat Harvest Bars taste, so I'll be trying the Blueberry Bliss flavor today. An 8.8 oz. box with five 1.76 oz. bars costs around $2.78.

REVIEW: Fiber One 90 Calorie Brownies Chocolate Chip Cookie

Last review I talked about purchasing two different types of Fiber One "brownies" for taste-testing. That review was all about Cinnamon Coffee Cake- Now we move on to Chocolate Chip Cookie! By the way, I wonder if Fiber One ought to change the name of this product line to something other than 90 Calorie BROWNIES. Because if they keep going in the direction they're heading, we're going to have a lot of non-brownie treats under a brownie label, you know what I'm saying? Lemon Bar? Coffee Cake? Chocolate Chip Cookie? I'm no patisserie, but those are NOT brownie names, people.
Anyway, a 5.34 oz. box with six 0.89 brownies costs around $2.98.

REVIEW: Fiber One 90 Calorie Brownies Cinnamon Coffee Cake

I've reviewed two of Fiber One's 90 calorie "brownies" so far- their Chocolate Fudge and their Lemon Bar. And I've been impressed enough by these two little treats that I decided to swoop up two MORE flavors while on a recent trip to the grocery store. One of those flavors- Cinnamon Coffee Cake -I shall be reviewing today. One 5.34 oz. box with six 0.89 oz. bars costs around $2.98.

REVIEW: Kashi GoLean Crisp! Toasted Berry Crumble Cereal

Sometimes, I'm nervous to try new Kashi cereals. Why? Well, let's be honest- plenty of Kashi products are healthy, but not all of them are very tasty. Kashi GoLean Original and Heart to Heart Warm Cinnamon are two decently healthy cereals, but just aren't all that mindblowing when it comes to taste. They're good, just not good enough to buy again. I mean, I only keep purchasing the GoLean just because it has so much protein to it. If it didn't, then nope- out from my pantry with youuuu!!!
And Kashi's GoLean Crunch!, a cereal much akin to their Toasted Berry Crumble, had a great crunchy texture, but was- like the two other aforementioned Kashi cereals -pretty mild in flavor. Another Kashi cereal I tried? Their GoLean Crisp! Cinnamon Crumble, which I don't have a review on but DID eat. THAT cereal was mild as well, and even shares the same title with Toasted Berry Crumble (You know, the GoLean Crisp! part anyway).
So I think it only made sense for me to be a bit on the wary side when purchasing Kashi's Toasted Berry Crumble. I only did so just because I HAD heard such good things about the cereal already. But I still had my doubts. Hopefully a taste-test would change that. A 14 oz. box costs around $3.99.

REVIEW: General Mills Chocolate Toast Crunch Cereal

I don't know what is IS about chocolate-flavored cereals, but they seem to be are just cause for celebration! A long-time example: Cocoa Krispies. I've ALWAYS preferred those over regular Rice Krispies- since as long as I can remember. A more recent example? Released just last year was Chocolate Frosted Flakes. ...Otherwise known as Choco Zucaritas, whatever the heck that means. Whatever- they were chocolate covered Frosted Flakes, and I was freaking out about them!
And then along came Chocolate Toast Crunch... Now, if I was jumping up and down eagerly telling all my friends about Chocolate Frosted Flakes like a geekwad, just imagine how I felt when I heard about Chocolate Toast Crunch, a chocolate version of Cinnamon Toast Crunch, aka THE BEST cereal in the world?!?!
Well, actually, I was a bit skeptical. I was excited, sure, but I'm sure you can see how there might be room for doubt. Let me explain: There has been Frosted Toast Crunch: Toast Crunch with a vanilla icing flavor; there has been Peanut Butter Toast Crunch: Toast Crunch with a peanut butter flavor. I can see both vanilla icing and PB working well with cinnamon. Plus, those two flavors are pretty unique. But chocolate flavor is such a far cry from cinnamon flavor, and is so overly used in today's cereal market. Cinnamon Toast Crunch is a FANTASTIC cinnamon cereal, but could it be a fantastic chocolate cereal as well, or would it only be as good as standard chocolate cereals like Cocoa Puffs? Chocolate is an easy flavor to make a GOOD cereal out of, but what about a great cereal? This is what I set about to find out today with this review. A 12.7 oz. box costs around $2.98.

Friday, January 10, 2014

REVIEW: belVita Oats & Chocolate Soft Baked Breakfast Biscuit

belVita's Mixed Berry Soft Baked Bar was pretty delicious by my verdict, so I'm back for more to try their new Oats & Chocolate Bar! I honestly always tend to think at first glance that chocolate-flavored products will most likely beat out berry-flavored ones by taste (except gum. Chocolate gum sounds gross), but I guess we'll see. An 8.8 oz. box with five 1.76 oz. bars costs around $2.98.

REVIEW: NuGo Free Dark Chocolate Crunch Bar

Today's review is brought to you by NuGo Free: Gluten Free, Kosher Free, Soy Free, Low Fat, High Protein, Vegan NuGo Free. Yup, pr-eee-tty healthy. And you know where I got this bar from? Not a vitamin shoppe, nor an organic supermarket, nor a nutrition center... believe it or not, I purchased this Dark Chocolate Crunch bar from a gluten-free stand at a basketball stadium. Yeah, whatever. I could've gotten something really tasty like soft serve or a warm pretzel- and all for the same price -but I guess this was what I went with. 
Sometimes I wonder if I even think. But in my defense, I hadn't heard of NuGo before so I was somewhat intrigued by the protein bar gazing down at me from the display of the gluten-free stand. So, here we go: NuGo's Gluten Free Dark Chocolate Crunch Bar. Since I was at a sports game, mine was purchased for the cutthroat price of $5.00, but you can most likely buy one 1.59 oz. bar for around $1.49 at more reasonable retailers.

REVIEW: Wildwood PastaSlim Spaghetti Shirataki

Once, long ago, I tried out Wildwood's Spinach Fettucini Shirataki Noodles, and from what I could remember, I was quite impressed by them. Now I set out to try their more traditional Spaghetti variety of shirataki noodles. A 7 oz. bad costs around $2.33.

REVIEW: Fiber One Chocolate Peanut Butter Meal Bar

It's interesting to see what brand names are hopping on the meal bar bandwagon nowadays, but I'd NEVER think to see Fiber One producing them. Sure, Fiber One has made protein bars in the past, and I see nothing weird about that, but meal bars? Like the ones you find near the medicine aisle? Not Fiber One! Fiber One just seems so... commercial, I guess. I don't know. I mean, I'm sure CLIF and Atkins and PowerBar are all plenty commercial too, but at least they were FOUNDED as meal/protein/energy bar companies to begin with. Fiber One just didn't strike me as the kind of brand that would really be serious about making nutritious products like meal bars. Does that make sense? Fiber One cereals and granola bars are nutritious too, but in a different way. In a way that people who aren't TOO serious about nutrition would buy into. Maybe this all sounds just gobbley-gook, so I'll just shut up now.
But anyway, I'm totally glad Fiber One is making meal bars now- don't get me wrong. They make yummy chewy bars, so I'm sure their meal bars have some degree of potential to them as well. The flavors they've released so far are Strawberry Greek Yogurt, Dark Chocolate Almond, and Chocolate Peanut Butter- the last of which I will be reviewing today. A 7.95 oz. box with five 1.59 oz. bars costs around $5.49.

REVIEW: Nature Valley Oats 'n Honey Protein Crunchy Granola

I like granola bars a TON, but I've never really had any actual, good ol' granola granola. Like, you know, the kind you have in a bowl of milk or as a topping on yogurt. I think this party has to due with the fact that, for all the calories granola has, most of them are pretty empty. There were always plenty of other higher-fiber, higher-protein cereal choices, with less sugar and fat not to mention, so I always avoided purchasing granola, even though I really, really wanted to. Another reason I never bought it was that I was never really sure WHICH granola brand to start off with. A lot of them- especially the "better for you" ones -are made by kinda obscure brand names, leaving me to wonder if they're any good or not. But now, Nature Valley has released a new protein granola cereal, which a decent 10 grams of the stuff per serving. Nice! And come on, Nature Valley hasn't let me down before, so why would they start now? I doubt they- the granola bar pantheon of the WORLD -would be unsuccessful in their endeavors of creating something as simple as a granola cereal. But I guess we shall find out! An 11 oz. bag costs around $3.98.

REVIEW: Fiber One Oats & Caramel Chewy Bar

Fiber One's Oats & Chocolate Chewy Bar is pretty mainstream: I've seen them available by the bar at gas stations, high school concession stands, standing at the grocery line while waiting to check out- you get the picture. Fiber One's Oats & Chocolate is a fairly popular snack bar, I guess. And for fair enough reason- I mean, I liked it. I'm sure most others do too.
But what about the other chewy bars Fiber One has released? Yes, there ARE others. They just have to be bought by the box. One of the different flavors happens to be this Oats & Caramel Bar. I wonder if it deserves to be the poster child of Fiber One's Chewy Bar line instead of the Oats & Chocolate? I guess we'll find out, huh? A 7 oz. box containing five 1.4 oz. bars costs around $2.98.

REVIEW: Kashi Cherry Vanilla Soft-Baked Cereal Bars

I've had good luck and bad luck with Kashi products. Their Banana Chocolate Chip Bar? Goood. Their Cherry Dark Chocolate Bar? Baaad. And these two snack bars are just an example of the black or white gradings Kashi tends to receive from me. What can I say? Their products are either hits or misses most of the time. Now I go on to try Kashi's Cherry Vanilla Soft-Baked Cereal Bar to see if its worthy of a goood grade or a baaad grade. One 7.2 oz. box containing six 1.2 oz. bars costs around $4.09.

An 8.8 oz. box containing five 1.76 oz. biscuits costs around $2.98.

REVIEW: Fiber One 90 Calorie Chocolate Fudge Brownie

Happy 2014, everyone! How many of you are looking to lose weight as your New Years' resolution? Well, let me be one of the first to say, "You can do it!" Don't listen to those berating statistics that say most people give up on their weight loss resolutions by the end of the first couple weeks or whatever. MY New Years' resolution a couple years ago was to lose weight, and I got down twenty-five pounds. It just takes a little determination not to be deterred by others. What you eat is YOUR choice, not anybody elses, no matter how it seems. Just remember that, and you'll do fine.
Anyway, one easy way to kick start that weight loss is to replace your calorie-laden sweets with something healthier and more portion-controlled. Lo and behold, Fiber One has created a variety of 90 calorie treats so you can indulge without breaking the caloric bank. I've already tried their 90 Calorie Lemon Bar, and today I'll be taste-testing their Chocolate Fudge Brownie flavor. A 5.34 oz. box containing six small 0.89 oz. brownies costs around $2.98.
