ALDI – Millville – Chewy Granola Trail Mix Bar – Dark Chocolate Cherry – Food Review

10/03/2017

ALDI, Millville, Trail Mix Chewy Granola Bars, snack, review, price, nutritionOctober 3, 2017

Oats, nuts, fruit loosely held together by a mildly sweet syrup. This is not a hard granola bar. In fact it will bend and start to break apart just getting it out of the package.  There’s just enough syrupy binder  to hold everything together. As a result, this is not a very sweet bar. If you’re looking to avoid something so sweet that your teeth start to hurt, you may like this. The other benefit is your fingers don’t feel like they’re covered with super glue. The mixture of ingredients in the bar should also help slowly feed energy to your body as the bar is digested. That will help to avoid an immediate sugar high. The fruit and nuts in the bar are more enjoyable than the oats in the bar. That’s to be expected. The chocolate was mostly hiding in my bars.

ALDI, Millville, Trail Mix Chewy Granola Bars, snack, review, price, nutritionOn the trail, the 140 calories in the bar should be good for about 1.5 to 2 miles down a relatively flat trail at a moderate pace. Off the trail, as a snack, that’s how far you’ll need to walk to burn off the calories. Did I just ruin your day?

ALDI – Roasted Nut Bar – Almond Crunch – Food Review

ALDI, Roasted Nut Bar, Nutrition, Review, Calories, Price, SnackMay 20, 2017

In a seemingly endless number of nutty snack bars, here’s one more.  To the possible delight of many readers, if this one becomes a permanent resident on the ALDI shelves, this bar seems to be a variation of the very popular but short-lived Simple Nut Bar.

Without having a Simple Nut Bar present for a side-by-side comparison, this Roasted Nut Bar seems very similar.  From memory, my preference would be the Simple Nut Bar.  But I could easily live with this one.  Like the Simple Nut Bar, this one is mostly nuts.  Comparing the back of the boxes (see Simple Nut Bar box here), the ingredients are very similar.  Both are products of Canada.  That leads me to believe these are produced by the same company and are just variations of the product formula.

ALDI, Roasted Nut Bar, Nutrition, Review, Calories, Price, SnackThere’s a minimal amount of sticky binder to hold all the nuts together (almonds, peanuts and sunflower seeds).   If you’re looking for sweet, or chocolate, this is not for you.  As the bar is mostly nuts, it is hard and crunchy.  For a snack food, this has a reasonably good nutrition mix.  Of course, being mostly nuts, a high percent of the calories come from fat (most likely the nut oils).  Carbohydrates are lower than many other snack bars.  While not a high power protein bar, these do have an okay 6 g of protein.  Calories  180 per bar    Price $2.79 per box (6 bars in a box)

ALDI – Millville Simple Nut Bar – Almond, Cashew & Sea Salt – Food Review

ALDI, Millville, Simple Nut Bar, price, calories, review, snackMarch 11, 2017

That’s exactly what this is, a simple nut bar. It’s almost nuttin’ but nuts held together with just enough gooey stuff to make a bar.  There’s a little bit of sea salt added in, but not enough to be very salty.  There’s no chocolate coating or drizzle.  Some dark chocolate would’ve been nice in my opinion.  But it’s still good without.

The nuts are large and identifiable by species, just in case you’re into matching up the ingredients to the label.  Oooh, there’s a cashew!
