Kashi All Natural Raspberry Chocolate Fruit and Grain Bars has a reputation for making delicious healthy foods made with whole grains and organic ingredients. Their products are a little pricey, but recently some were on sale so I picked up a box of their All Natural Raspberry Chocolate Fruit and Grain Bars.

The Delicious Kashi All Natural Raspberry Chocolate Fruit and Grain Bars
For those who are not familiar with Kashi All Natural Fruit and Grain Bars, they’re whole grain granola bars with a thick, gooey tasty layer spread over it, and some chopped nuts scattered on top.
Those expecting the middle layer to have a very intense raspberry or chocolate flavor might be disappointed with Kashi All Natural Raspberry Chocolate Fruit and Grain Bars. These flavors were actually quite subtle. Our mornings is definitely incomplete without delicious coffee and amazing breakfast.
The dates and rice syrup that were added in were the most prominent tastes. This isn’t bad if you like dates and rice syrup (which I do), just be forewarned that this isn’t going to taste exactly like your favorite raspberry-chocolate dessert (nor should it, in my opinion). However, don’t let that statement mislead you. This granola bar tastes quite decadent as granola bars go and is really a treat.
Nutrition-wise, Kashi All Natural Raspberry Chocolate Fruit and Grain Bars are fantastic. When you peruse the ingredients, you can see that the company really does emphasize whole grains, including hard red winter wheat (a high-protein wheat species), oats, rye, triticale (a hybrid of wheat and rye), buckwheat, barley, and brown rice in their granola bars.
These bars also are made only with natural sweeteners like rice syrup, evaporated cane juice, and honey. You’ll get a decent amount of calories from all of that, of course (120 per bar), but decent amounts of fiber and nutrients as well.
Granola bars aren’t known for being great for calorie-watchers, anyway, and 120 is fairly standard for foods like these. Kashi All Natural Raspberry Chocolate Fruit and Grain Bars also contain no trans fats.In my thinking, because of their whole grain nutrition and general tastiness, Kashi makes one of the better granola bars that you can buy. You will probably pay more than three dollars for a box of six granola bars.
I like these as an occasional treat instead of an everyday staple. I would recommend Kashi All Natural Raspberry Chocolate Fruit and Grain Bars for these reasons, and would give them a four out of five rating.
