First up: Odwalla Banana Nut Bar
I had high hopes for this bar...the absence of an oven and fresh baked goods had me hoping that this would taste like a slice of homemade banana nut bread.
Overall, it tasted like a dense piece of banana bread with smooth, good-sized walnuts and a subtle, natural sweetness. HOWEVER, there is a sprinkling of crisped rice throughout the batter that I would really rather do without. It tastes like stale crisped rice and totally detracts from the dense and delicious nature of the bar... so much so, that I will not be buying this bar again in the very near future...
So here's the deal my foodie lovin' friends:
Thanksgiving, Christmas...the lovely holidays filled with Family and Friends are fast approaching (yay!).
