Kashi TLC Cereal Bars

Ah, how I love my bars. I think all foodie bloggers do. It's just a way of life for us. My only gripe with them is finding actually healthy ones. There are bars like Fiber One out there that claim to be good for you, but are filled with chemicals. Kashi, of course, is a great pick for a bar if you're looking for an alternative that's good for you.
So, what do these little thingies taste like? Heaven! No, I'm serious. :) I've tried all three flavors, which are, in order from most favorite to least favorite, Baked Apple Spice, Ripe Strawberry, and Blackberry Graham.
Baked Apple Spice: My absolute favorite of the three! It tastes so unlike that fake apple flavor that you often find in bars like this. It has a genuine... "apple-ness". The outside is so soft and chewy, but the inside has a great fruit filling.

Ripe Strawberry: I think that I like this one less than Baked Apple Spice because the strawberry flavor is kind of generic. Still good though, don't get me wrong! Just like preserves or jams.

Blackberry Graham: Definitely not one of my favorites... The flavor of the filling is a little bit bland. It doesn't really taste like any one fruit, it's sort of a "mixed berry".

All in all, I love these bars! I will continuously buy the Baked Apple Spice bars. It's perfectly chewy on the outside and jam-filled on the inside.

Each bar has 110 calories, no matter which flavor you get. They have 7 Whole Grains, 3g of fiber, and 2g of protein. The filling is made out of real fruit. There are only 9g of sugar, but there are 3g of fat. Still delicious and healthy, however!

Price: $2.88 on sale at Target
Calories: 110 per bar

Is it weird that the only giveaways I've ever won have been for Zevia? It's true. :D Maybe I'll win these ones too!
