Kashi Review and Giveaway!!

I was was recently asked by Moms Meet to review the new Chocolate Soft baked Squares from Kashi. Kashi is already a brand we enjoy and I was excited to try a new product and learn more about the company. 

What I like about Kashi is that they they use whole grains and healthier ingredients than you typically find in similar products.The Chocolate Squares are made with 7 whole grains, sweet potatoes and beans!!  They also do not use high fructose corn syrup but instead use agave to add sweetness. To learn more about how Kashi chooses the ingredients for their products head on over to their website you can also find great recipes their too!

Now, I won't lie to you, my daughter was not a fan of these bars :( I think the main issue for her was that they  look like a brownie but they aren't of course! She just couldn't get past that and was expecting a really sweet chocolaty taste which these bars do not have. I shared them with a friends children and they gobbled them up. So it really depends on your child. I thought they were okay. I enjoyed them most when I topped them with some vanilla fro-yo for a "healthier" dessert option. My husband said they were okay. 

We are however fans of lots of other Kashi products. Some of our faves are the banana chocolate chip bars, the cinnamon harvest cereal and ALL the cookies,lol. Kashi is easily found in almost every grocery store so no need to go to a specialty store to try and find their products.

Kashi wants one lucky winner to try some products for free and they are even throwing in a Kashi lunch tote as well!! Contest ends Nov 12th. Open to US residents only please!
