Product Review - Special K Bars

I bought these Special K bars the other day to have around the house for snacks. I let Lucas gnaw on one during church on Sunday and I could smell it from a couple feet away... smelled like some sort of sweet candy/poison. But he chewed on it for a while.
Today I actually took a bite of one that was left out on the counter (I assumed from one I gave Lucas yesterday). You wouldn't believe it, but these peach and berry bars actually don't taste a thing like peaches or berries, but they do taste remarkably like poison.
Poor Lucas was probably confused that I kept giving him poison for snack because he's usually not allowed to play in the poison cupboard.
It turns out the one I took a bite of today was one that Ben tried this morning and couldn't stomach. We decided that the nasty flavor is probably from aspartame, which is basically like poison. Great. Now we're all going to get brain tumors.
If you want to try an absolutely fantastic granola bar, try Kashi's Cherry Dark Chocolate bars. I love them AND they're good for you - no poison .

Thanks for the warning. I'm all for trying new things, but that sounds aweful! My new favorite granola bars are the Quaker Simple Harvest Dark Chocolate Chunk. And you can get a free sample in the mail here: http://www.startsampling.com/sm/100462

Are you kidding me?! I LOVE those things! I get the strawberry ones though, and one bar is only 90 calories! Addie likes them also! And doesn't everything give you cancer or some kind of tumor these days! Come on, you gotta live a little! :)
