Odwalla Banana Nut BarThe Odwalla Berries GoMega, Super Protein and Chewy Nut Bars all received a 4 kiss rating here on Iateapie. However, I am not going to be quite as generous with the Odwalla Banana Nut Bar.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 bar (2.2 ounces)
Calories: 240
Total Fat: 6 grams, 10%
Saturated Fat: 1 gram, 5%
Sodium: 115 mg, 5%
Carbohydrates: 41 grams
Fiber: 5 gram, 19%
Sugars: 18 grams
Protein: 4 grams

I loved the dense and naturally sweet nature of the bar, and the "homemade" taste and feel of the bar. Furthermore, there were chunks of smooth walnuts, adding to the homemade feel and the banana flavor was thorough, but not overpowering. Where Odwalla went wrong is with the sprinkling of crisped rice that is dispersed throughout the batter. It is a random addition and tastes like stale crisped rice, obscuring the delicious potential of this bar. If they would leave out this random addition, this bar would completely jive with my taste buds. As a matter of fact, if Banana Bread is what you are going for, pick up a box of Back to Nature Banana Walnut Bakery Squares.

Each 2.2 ounce Odwalla Banana Nut Bar provides 240 calories, 10% of the daily value for total fat, 5% of the DV for saturated, 5 grams of fiber (19% of the DV), 18 grams of sugar and 4 grams of protein. The ingredient list looks like it's mostly populated with natural ingredients, but the first 3 out of 4 ingredients are some form of sugar.

Odwalla tends to shoulder a slightly higher price tag than a lot of the bars. I paid $2.29 for this Odwalla Banana Nut Bar but with a plethora of choices at my fingertips, I am not exactly running back for to get this particular bar quite yet.
