If you ever wondered, "why don't they combine the chocolate granola bar with the peanut butter goop that's on top of the peanut butter granola bars?" then do I have good news for you. There are no surprises here - it is really just the peanut butter goop from on top of the crunchy peanut butter granola bars, slathered on the fairly recently invented chocolate crunchy granola bars. Nature Valley crunchy bars don't seem like they could be controversial, but if you look at the ingredients, at least three of them are sugar. This bar isn't particularly good for you. Also, the peanut butter goop isn't really my favorite, it can get a little messy. But this is a great combination, completely unsurprising but reliable in its familiarity. If you like these, you like them; I do.
