Naturepeanut.jpgSince I've been down here, my aunt has been buying these Sweet & Salty Nut Granola Bars, by Nature Valley. Pictured is the peanut variety... you can get a closer look by clicking on the pic. Peanuts and granola dipped in a peanut butter coating. It says right there in the banner on the front of the box. These things rock... and there are four different varieties.

My favorite has been the cashew bars. Cashews just plain ol' fashioned kick ass, and mixed with granola and dipped in cashew butter (yes, cashew butter), you can't find much better. There's also an almond bar, dipped in, you guessed it, almond butter. I've had all four types of bars, and they were good, but the fourth type... well, I haven't bought them anymore. I can't bring myself to do it, after reading the box. Who the hell is going to intentionally purchase food that's been dipped in nut butter... mixed nut butter? Probably the sicko that sent me (click at your own risk) this video.

Anyway, despite having a decent product, I'm thinking that Nature Valley needs to do a bit of rewording...

That video was, well, disturbing, yet hilarious.

Oh heck, I like'm anyway...go good at the end of a long hike.

Video was great too, but I don't think you'll see that on TV!

Dude, I saw those things today while wandering the local Publix on my lunch hour. I bought the almond ones, though. No nut butter for me.

Maybe you could offer your services and rewrite it for them!

Yummy nut bars for life!

The only completely ON topic comment here.

Yes, the peanut variety Sweet & Salty Nut Granola Bars ARE very good.

Just tried my first one this morning, coincidentally.
