La Molienda Antojos Big Mixnut Bar (Barra Mixta Grande)

La Molienda Antojos Big Mixnut Bar (Barra Mixta Grande)

Taste: This huge granola bar (7 inches long, just under 2 inches wide and almost an inch thick) had a clear wrapper that put all of the contents on display, and it looked really nice. I was able to identify most of the ingredients — peanuts, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds and raisins — without even looking at the label on the back. In fact, I got a solid 80% of the list, as the only thing I missed was glucose, which seemed to be the shiny substance holding it all together. I opened the wrapper and tried to dive right in, but quickly found that this was one very solid bar, not at all easy to bite into. I very carefully bit in using my molars rather than incisors (for fear of losing them) and found it still took a lot of effort but could be done. The taste was very nice, a sweet mix of the nuts, seeds and raisins, but I took bites with constant fear of tooth damage. I tried breaking the bar into pieces, which took considerable muscle (good thing I work out!) but was still met with very limited success. And it was messy. Pieces were stuck to my lips and teeth after eating, plus bits flew everywhere when I managed to break it. Even if it weren't so hard to eat, I probably couldn't have eaten the whole bar in one sitting because of the sheer size; it took so much effort that I ate just a small fraction. I wanted to eat more, but there so much risk and work involved. This could be workable approach to portion control!

Aroma: Pretty good. Peanuts and sesame seeds seemed tone the dominate smells.
