Nature Valley Dark Chocolate & Peanut Butter Granola Thins

Nature Valley Dark Chocolate & Peanut Butter Granola Thins

I just finished up a box of a new snack, and I liked it quite a bit. In general, I’m not a huge fan of Nature Valley products. The bars tend to be too hard and dry for my taste. However, I do like the granola thins. They’re a combination of peanut butter and granola, with a thin dark chocolate coating. They’re only 80 calories each and more filling than you would expect. I had no problem sticking to the proper serving size.

Each granola thin is about the size of half a graham cracker, so it’s not super huge, but it feels indulgent. They’re ten in a box, but I swear that it lasted forever. They’re individually wrapped, with some weird cardboard support in the package. It’s one of those slightly wasteful packaging designs that I don’t love, but I did like the snack enough not to mind. The second ingredient is sugar, unsurprisingly, so it’s not so good for you.

My only complaint is that the dark chocolate was awfully sweet. Someone who likes dark chocolate because it’s less sweet might be disappointed. I love dark chocolate, but this was not it. The combination of peanut butter and chocolate was still enjoyable, of course.

You should beware that it’s not the cheapest snack option.

    I love the dark chocolate with peanut butter, cant eat just one. And the cardboard in the wrapping package is so convinant to keep the chocolate together and not on the wrapper. Well Done, do not make any changes.

    Iwould have to argue that the cardboard is wasteful and doesn’t help when it’s hot out. Melty chocolate just sticks to it.
