Kashi TLC Honey Almond Flax Granola Bars Review

Kashi TLC Honey Almond Flax Granola BarsSince other reviewers have had so much success with Kashi products, I decided to try the Kashi TLC Honey Almond Flax Granola Bars, especially after reading previous reviews of the Cherry Dark Chocolate and Peanut Butter flavors. Unfortunately I was not as impressed with the taste of the Honey Almond Flax bars as I was with the other flavors. I had heard great things but I found them dry and tasteless. Perhaps I should blame my sweet tooth - I guess 5 grams of sugar just does not cut it for my taste buds. Since I paid nearly $5 for a box at my campus convenience store, I continued eating the bar to see if it grew on me. While I definitely did not hate the taste, I just could not detect much of a honey flavor ... or much flavor at all. They were extremely chewy, and I found them almost stale, despite not being past their expiration date.

I was, however, very impressed with the chunks of whole almonds in the bars. The ingredients confirm what you can tell just looking at these bars, which is that they are wholesome, all-natural, and made of quality ingredients. As with all Kashi products, these bars contain their Seven Whole Grains & Sesame Blend and lack the typical nutritional "bad guys" such as partially hydrogenated oils.

Their nutritional facts certainly fit my bar standards, with the bars having only 140 calories, 5 grams of total fat (8% of the daily value), 0.5 grams of which are saturated, 7 grams of protein and 19 grams of total carbohydrate which includes 4 grams of fiber (15% of the RDA) and a very low 5 grams of sugar. The higher fat count than some other similar bars is due to the healthy fats in the almonds, so I was not concerned.

If you do not mind a lack of sweetness in your bars, I would suggest giving these bars a try. Many people love them, but for me, despite their stellar nutrition, I just did not find anything outstanding about the taste, and I would choose another bar if I were looking for a better combination of taste and nutrition.
