My Review of Quaker Soft Baked Bars

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Quaker Oats for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I just wanted to write and let my readers know that I've tried the new Quaker Soft Baked Bars.Before I get too long winded, let me just start out by stating my conclusion and then backtracking to justify it. The bars are very good and a cut above most cereal bars. Here is my analysis.

First, here is a picture of me getting the boxes of cereal bars to try:


Nutrition: The bars are pretty good as far as their nutrition and a wholesome food goes. First off, they only have 140 calories per bar, which is much better than a candy bar or even a lot of other cereal bars I've seen out there. Also, they have a whopping 5 grams of fiber per bar.
For those of you who aren't as much of a fiber junky as I am, that's a huge number. For the average person, that's about 21% of their daiy requirement of fiber (which is probably about 20% more than many people get in a day ...). Not only is fiber good for your digestive health, but it also helps fill you up so that you eat less. So, the amount of fiber in the bar is a huge plus for me.
Here is a picture of me enjoying a delicious bar. (I hope that my readers don't mind my blacked face. I am a very private person).

Taste: The taste of the bars is quite good. Both of the types of bars (Banana Nut Bread and Cinnamon Pecan Bread) have a good flavor that is both sweet but not overstated. I think that, out of the two kinds, my favorite is the Cinnamon bar. I found the cinnamon to provide a nice after taste without overpowering the sweetness of the sugar in the bar. My sister claims that the cinnamon is overpowered and likes the Banana bar for that reason, but I disagree.
So, those are my thoughts on the two areas of primary concern: nutrition and taste. I have shared the bars with my family, and they agree that they're an excellent product. I think that, once the bars come on the market in stores close to me, I will probably buy a box to take to work with me so that I can eat them if I don't have time for breakfast as a breakfast snack.

Here is a photo of the boxes that Quaker sent me to review.
