Quaker Soft Baked Banana Nut Bar Review

Hello!  So for the past month I have been raving about this product and I wanted to rave some more about it.  I first received a full sized sample of this in my Influenster Summer Beauty Voxbox (which was sent to me for testing and review) and I instantly loved it!

What Quaker promises:
Made with real bananas and almonds, Quaker Soft Baked Bars Banana Nut Bread flavor has tasty ingredients and key nutrients to help provide fuel to start your day.

-5g Fiber*
-20% daily value of 5 B Vitamins
-6g of Protein
*Contains 3.5g of total fat per serving

Where to buy:
You can find Quaker Soft Baked Bars at most major retailers.
Suggested retail price: $3.29 for a box of 5 bars

A picture is worth a thousand words so need I say more?  Does that not looking super freaking delicious?  Well if you don't believe the photo...take my word for it (apparently I think my word is worth a lot, meh haha) 

Quick Take:  I literally thought "ooh Quaker, I love you and your oats!"  I'm one of those people who enjoy oatmeal and love eating it prepared in many different ways.  

Usage Tips:  Just eat it and savor every morsel because before you know it, it's gone!  

The Verdict:  Delicious and nutritious (for the most part).  These bars have a really nice texture and the banana flavor is very prominent.  This is definitely banana nut bread in every way.  There is a high sugar content, but it's low compared to other breakfast bars and even low compared to some protein bars.  Keep in mind, it is also made with real sugar, not sugar substitute so it is also healthier in that regard.  I also love that the first two ingredients listed (whole grain rolled oats, soy crisp rice) is actual food and not a filler ingredient (which is common in many breakfast bars and proteins bars).  I could actually taste the first two ingredients and I was really happy about that.  I am definitely giving this a two thumbs up!  

See...11 grams of sugar.  Yikes!  I see worse breakfast bars out there though.
The ingredient list...pretty wholesome for the most part.
I enjoyed Quaker's product so much that I bought a box for myself.  
I also bought other items introduced to me by Influenster!
