Trader Joe's These Peanuts Go On A Date Bars

Go to most grocery shops and have a look at the snack bar aisle. Ay yi yi. Granola bars so far as the attention can see, in all types of variants. That is all I remeber from rising up. Lately, although…Clif Bars, Luna Bars, Larabars, fruit/nut/seed “protein” bars, heck even Gatorade bars. It is obvious we love these lil useful snack buggers.

So after all, this is one other entry into healthyish snack bars, and as an added bonus, it is one other TJ’s fashion try at copying off a extra well-known model with solely delicate variations. This time, it is Dealer Joe’s These Peanuts Go On A Date Bars.

Let me get this out of the best way: the title bugs me, and I am unable to determine why. It is cutesy with the tacky pun (we count on nothing much less, Massive Joe) that makes for a simple illustration, and so far as I do know it is grammatical, however…I do not know. It would not sound correct. Perhaps they might have been referred to as Nutty Date bars, and for an image, have my highschool girlfriend on there…however I digress.

The closest mainstream snack bar to those TJ’s nutty daters could be, after all, Larabars. Dates and nuts as the bottom for a on-the-go grubber is fairly customary and shared between the 2. However there are, after all, variations. I’ve had Larabars with dates and peanuts in them, however to my information, none with “peanut butter” additionally listed. There’s not an enormous distinction tastewise, besides perhaps the TJ’s bars being barely much less datey and barely extra nutty, however man, the texture is totally different. TJ’s are a lot softer, virtually limp, comnpared to the usal firmness of a Larabar. I can sense it being a textural problem for some, for certain.

However yeah, apart from that: Dates. Peanuts. Flax seeds and sea salt, which do not do a lot in my view. Whoomp there it’s. Nothing thrilling.

They’re a good worth in comparison with Larabars, which I am accustomed to seeing at roughly a buck a pop. TJ’s field o’ 5 is $2.99, so not unhealthy, and simpler than making your personal – I do know, I’ve tried, and I’ve the burned out blender to show it. They’re value a attempt if Larabars are your bag, if not you would be happier skipping. Kinda meh all the best way round – not nice, not terrible, which is alright with me.
