Archer Farms Banana Split Indulgent Granola Bites
4 out of 10 Snackbacks

The Archer Farms Banana Split Indulgent Granola Bites are really strange. They aren’t quite candy bars, and they really aren’t a granola bar either. These snacks are about the same size as a fun size candy bar and consist of a hyper sweet chocolate covered granola square filled with white chocolate chips, strawberry flavored cranberries, and dried bananas.

I purchased the Banana Split Granola Bites from Target. Most of the time I really like Archer Farms products, but these little guys were just okay. There are two things that keep these bites from being great:

1.     They are too sweet and the artificial strawberry taste is overpowering. 

2.     They are tiny, so even though I didn’t like them very much I still ate three… I was hungry.

Next time I'm at Target, maybe I'll try a different flavor.

When I first purchased the Fit & Active Protein Meal Bar at Aldi, I didn’t really know what I was getting. I was in a hurry and thought that I was grabbing some kind of chocolate covered granola bar. I was pleasantly surprise to find that I had stumbled upon a new type of snack bar that was delicious and surprisingly not completely unnutriscious (if that’s even a word).

If I was to bite into one of these chocolaty bars and was asked to guess what I was eating, I would have guessed either a Little Debbie Nutty Bar or one of those Reese’s Crispy Crunchy Bars. In other words, it tastes just like a candy bar!

What differentiates the Fit and Active Chocolate and Peanut Butter Protein Meal Bars from other candy bars is the nutritional properties of these bad boys. In the chart below you can see that both of the other peanut butter snacks have more calories, more fat, more sugar, less protein, and less fiber. 

To sum this review up, a Fit and Active Chocolate and Peanut Butter Protein Meal Bar gives you a satisfying chocolate and peanut butter snack without as much of the stuff that makes you fat.
