Influenster Summer VoxBox Quaker Soft Baked Bar

Review of Quaker Soft Baked Bar in Banana Nut Bread

     Oh wow! Talk about yummy treats!  Have you tried the new Soft Baked Bars by Quaker?  If not, you should!!  I received one as part of my Influenster Summer VoxBox in the Banana Nut Bread flavor, and it was truly delicious!  The best part of all? They are actually a pretty healthy treat as far as a snack food goes!

    These bars come in two flavors, Banana Nut Bread and Cinnamon Pecan Bread, and are made with plenty of tasty ingredients and key nutrients to provide you the needed fuel to start your day.  The Cinnamon Pecan Bread Bars are made with real pecans, cinnamon, raisins and whole grain Quaker oats.  They contain 5 grams of fiber, 20 percent daily value of 5 different B vitamins, 6 grams of protein, 4 grams of total fat and 140 calories.  I tried the Banana Nut Bread flavor which are made with real bananas and almonds and whole grain Quaker oats.  They have 5 grams of fiber, 20 percent daily value of 5 different B vitamins, 6 grams of protein, 3.5 grams of total fat and 140 calories.  Not too bad for a breakfast bar or a quick snack, especially when compared to a lot of other snack bars.

    I was really impressed when I first tried the bar and discovered it really did taste like fresh baked banana nut bread.  It was soft and chewy, and had just the right amount of crunch added by the slices of almonds sprinkled across the top.  I liked it so well that my husband and I bought a box to have on hand at home.  These bars are the perfect size for a light morning breakfast or for a quick snack, and are tasty and filling!  I even tried one warmed in the microwave as the package suggested and it was wonderful, even more soft and fresh-baked tasting!

     Five (5) bars come in each box and, according to my card from Influenster, have a suggested retail price of around $3.29;  however, we bought ours at Walmart Super Center for around $2.85. There are coupons available at the moment on the Quaker site (here) through RedPlum. I do not know how long they will be available so if you think you want to try them, get your coupon now!



     When I first saw the Quaker Soft Baked Bar in my VoxBox, I was hesitant to try it for a couple of reasons.  First of all, I am not a huge fan of banana nut bread, especially if it is not home made from a recipe.  Secondly, every time I have tried a banana nut bread flavored snack, whether it be a bar or a muffin or whatever, the taste has been very off-putting and not at all reminiscent of true banana nut bread.  I decided to take a chance and try it, and now I am so glad that I did!  You should too!
