Review: Kraft - Peanut Butter Milk Bite Milk & Granola Bar

Kraft's Peanut Butter Milk Bite milk and granola bars boast the same amount of calcium as an 8-ounce cup of milk in a granola bar.

A box of five 1.23-ounce bars cost me $3.49 which was the regular price.

I generally like peanut butter so peanut butter in a granola bar is pretty terrific in my book. There's a real peanut butter taste (and bits of peanuts) throughout the bar, though without the peanut butter texture.
Milk Bites lack any crunchiness that you may find in other granola bar though. Instead, there's a soft, creamy granola flavor but with a texture that I liken to a protein bar. If you've never tried a protein bar, I would say the feel is somewhat akin to half-frozen oatmeal cookie dough. It's soft but dense and chewy.

The peanut butter flavor fits the textures a bit better than the strawberry flavor I tried previously.
Nutritionally, Peanut Butter Milk Bites mostly give you calcium but not too much in the way of other nutrients. They do provide a decent amount of dietary fiber though (3g for 12% of the daily recommended amount).

These work out pretty well for a snack. They're not exactly crave-inducing but they're good and will stave off hunger for a bit. If you don't like drinking milk, Milk Bites could be a tastier alternative for getting your calcium.

  1. Cold cookie dough. Very good way to describe them. Not something I would want to eat again.  And they need to be stored in the fridge. Not always convenient.
