My reviews: Nature Valley Peanut Butter and Chocolate Granola cups

And I have to say that while I liked it (and let’s face it, peanut butter and chocolate can NEVER go wrong in my books!), it was pricey for what it was- glorified granola bars in puck-form. A box is $3.99 at Save-On, and each pack has two granola pucks.

The peanuts on top were a nice addition but weirdly the only thing I could think about when I was eating it was that it needed to be more dense and like, filling? It’s ridiculously light, feels like air. Peanut butter is more substantial than that!! Also it could have a deeper well for the peanut butter, and the chocolate coating on the bottom was ‘eh’…could barely even taste it. For show, mostly. Would I buy again? Only if it was on sale. I liked it, but I also like eating peanut butter out of the jar for roughly the same price for a whole jar, soooooo yeah. Nice try though, Nature Valley, on keeping me separated from my money once again.

 

I gave one to Ian and he had 1 bite and said he didn’t like it, because- and I quote- “It was too much peanut butter.” ?????????? So that’s been a fun marriage.

 

I ate the rest of his. And the rest of the box, if we are being honest here.
