While browsing the Target Grocery Markdowns section, I ran across EnviroKidz Chocolate Organic Crispy Rice Bar. The only other "kids nutrition bar" I've previously experienced is the Clif Kid Organic Chocolate Chip Z Bars, and it was really good. What was $2.44, now only cost $1.70 and since I am a sucker for a bargain, I eagerly added a box of EnviroKidz Chocolate Organic Crispy Rice Bars to my overflowing stash of quick and portable snacks.
The first pleasant aspect to tempt your tastes buds is the smell, which is very similar to Cocoa Krispies cereal. Moving onward, the bar has a nice and chewy texture to it while still retaining the delightful crispiness of the puffed rice, which is smaller in size than you might imagine, so more of it can be packed into each bar. Therefore, each mouthful begins with a boost of crunch and eventually melds together into a smooth, chewy, chocolate-y delight. There is just enough gooiness to hold the rice puffs together, but not so much that you need to bring anti-bacterial wipes with you (like with Cascadian Farm Harvest Berry Bars).
EnviroKidz Organic Peanut Butter Panda Puffs may be geared towrads children, but with no preservatives or additives, low sodium, and no gluten, these sounded pretty good to me too - decidedly an adult in age. I love peanut butter, so I was excited to try these. I also liked that they're just peanut butter, without chocolate - sometimes I like them individually!
I opened the box, poured myself a bowl, and started munching. Yum! The peanut butter flavor is subtle, sweet (but not too sweet), and rich - just delicious. This is good both with and without milk - as a snack.
