Taste test: These thick granola bars consisted mostly of oats and Rice Krispies inside, with a sprinkling of white frosting on top and a coating of caramel on the bottom.
The coating wasn't the typical melty-type caramel, nor the caramel corn shell-like coating of caramel, but more like a chocolate bar, except caramel instead of chocolate. The top of the bar was kind of airy, with many gaps between the various bits of granola. The taste was pretty good, with a mild hit of coffee flavor mixed in with sweet caramel. The overall flavor was sweet but not too sweet, though having this bar with a glass of cold milk would make it that much better.
