My New Snack Option: Special K Chewy Snack Bars

I have talked about this a ton on here, I am a very picky eater. I would love to be one of those people who has beautiful food pictures, but sadly I am not. I try really hard to have healthy snack options in the house, but with a cinnamon allergy, a lot of things come in my way. There is only so much plain cereal one person can take!

I was super excited when I saw Kellogg's Special K Chewy Snack Bars! I love Special K products for the variety they offer and that they are a tasty healthier option to what I usually reach for!

Thank you so much Special K for the goodies!!

The Special K Chewy Snack Bars are made with wholesome ingredients that you can see! In each bar you can see the real fruit pieces, oats, chocolate chunks and even pretzel pieces! There are a perfect go-to snack for someone who is always on the go.

The best part about it, each bar is only 100 delicious calories per bar!!

I have been on a cranberry kick recently, so when I saw the berry medley bar, I had to have it! As soon as I opened the wrapper you can smell the fruit! It was a fresh smell, not one like fruit snacks. I was very surprised at the pieces of dry fruit. There was no skimping going on! I may have eaten the entire thing in two bites, it was delicious!!

Do you see all the fruit pieces!!

I think the ultimate seal of approval came when I found a bite taken out of one of the salted caramel chocolate bars, courtesy of my husband! We have been trying to find him a snack that he can enjoy, and he has taken my entire box of blueberry bliss!

Here are some of the other things I really like about the Special K Chewy Snack Bars:

- The box has a perforate lip. It was so easy to open! I know this doesn't seems like much, but if you have kids and they can easily open something, you know they will eat it!

So easy to open! It's the little details!

- They are the perfect size for traveling. I was hoping to get to run outside during my test of the Special K Chewy Snack Bars, but Mother Nature had some other ideas. I did make sure that the bars fit in my handheld water bottle! I know what will be traveling with my for my marathon later this month!

Perfect fit!

- The flavor combinations are really great! I am all for mixing chocolate and salty in the same bite, especially while training for a race. The salted pretzel chocolate Special K Chewy Snack Bar has been my go to while training.

My treadmill partner!

You guys really need to give these a try! I saw them while shopping the other day and may have grabbed every box off the shelf! I know while I am marathon training I eat everything in sight, these Special K Chewy Snack Bars make me feel like I'm getting away with something!

Make sure you check out Special K on Facebook and Twitter! They always are releasing new products that are not only tasty, but a healthier option!

What flavor Special K Chewy Snack Bar are you most excited to try?
