Sweet on Trader Joe's Saturday: Blueberry Cereal Bars

I'm thinking of this as our Trader Joe's back-to-school edition. I don't know about you, but when school rolls around, I like to hit up the bars. The cereal bars.

There's a basket in our pantry stocked with bars for those rushed mornings (aka when I'm too lazy to make breakfast), to toss in a lunchbox, for an after school snack, sporting events, etc. etc. Bars are my go-to. (Not like they were in college. *ahem*)

Trader Joe's This Blueberry Walks into a Bar Cereal Bars come in a box of 6 for $1.99.

A mom's (my) take: These bars were one of the first things I ever purchased at Trader Joe's and I keep coming back. Soft, fruity, whole-grain...I love having them on hand. I appreciate that they're not frosted or colored artificially; I can get that from cookies. They're a staple in our house.
Overall rating: 5 of 5 stars

A teenager's (Jack's) take: I love these, and have resorted to them for many a quick breakfast. The amount of fruit on the inside is a perfect amount to balance the grain part of the bar, and it's not too runny or jelly-like, either, making it easy to break in pieces or share with someone without a mess. I consider these to be a wonderful balance of fruity and grainy, sweet and savory, pliable and sturdy, etc... I could go on.
Overall rating: 5 out of 5 stars

  1. First comment! Woo hoo! You two are awesome. I agree on these bars - though my son gets hungry a half hour after eating these. Have you guys tried TJ's frozen chocolate croissants yet???
