Taste test: I'm kind of a sucker for anything that contains both chocolate and mint, as it's often formulated into the ideal combination of tastes.
So when I came upon this festive-looking package of Quaker Chewy Granola Bars, I made my buying decision in no time flat. That turned out to be unfortunate, as these bars were a similar disappointment to many of the recent Quaker bars, which rely far too much on Rice Krispies and oats. This bar had a dark cocoa color for most of the bar, with small, light green-colored chips embedded into the surface. The texture was the usual from Quaker, not very impressive, and the taste was only mildly chocolatey and too minty for the level of chocolate. One really strange thing was that the thickness of the bars varied a lot from one to the next.

Smell test: Nothing special, just a mediocre weak mint smell.
From the package: “made with real cocoa” ... “made with whole grain oats” ... “no high fructose corn syrup” ... “good source of calcium” ... “Throw a few in your bag before heading out to the sledding hill!”
