Is your man sweet or salty? snacker, that is! Review & Giveaway

Is your man a sweet or salty snacker? (don't worry this can be you or your family in general) Three new General Mills snack products just came out and I was given the opportunity to try them out share them with my husband and kids! These great snacks are sold exclusively at convenience stores and the sizes are great for those long road trips, sharing, or just those with big appetites!


Here's a description of the three new snacks:
Cocoa Puffs Treats Triple Chocolate: An indulgent cereal bar that combines the great taste of Cocoa Puffs cereal and chocolate into one decadent treat, Cocoa Puffs Treats Triple Chocolate is perfect for satisfying any sweet tooth.

Bugles Hot Buffalo: Need something salty with a bit of a kick? Look no further than Bugles Hot Buffalo Crisp Corn Snacks, which blends the taste of hot buffalo sauce with crispy corn Bugles.

Nature Valley Oats ‘N Dark Chocolate Crunchy Granola Bars: If you want the best of both worlds, give Nature Valley Oats ‘N Dark Chocolate Crunchy Granola Bars a try. These bars mix dark chocolate pieces, oats and crisp rice nuggets for a classic crunch and burst of whole grain goodness, making them a perfect natural snack that's high in fiber and protein, but low in saturated fat.

Okay, so what did we think? We would definitely purchase the Bugles Hot Buffalo Crisp Corn Snacks! They were super yummy, left you with just a hint of burn, and had the perfect buffalo sauce flavor yet not overpowering! If you are a fan of Cocoa Puffs (my husband really is) then the Triple Chocolate Bar is for you! This thing is huge...we were able to split it in half and share a couple bites with the kids too! Everyone really like it! As for the Nature Valley Oats 'N Dark Chocolate Crunchy Granola Bar....well, I don't know that I would purchase it...don't get me wrong - I love dark chocolate...it's what I reach for if there's a choice, and I love the plain Nature Valley granola bars....BUT....this almost tasted like you were eating plain cocoa powder or at least that was the aftertaste. I really wanted to like it since I typically grab granola bars for breakfast and combining that with my love for dark chocolate would have been perfect...but I'll have to pass on this one for now!

I would look forward to the bugles the most! I used to eat the regular ones when I was little (after sticking them on my fingertips, of course).

I'd like to try Nature Valley Oats ‘N Dark Chocolate Crunchy Granola Bars. Because I like sweet bar, not salty.

We would like to try the granola bars. My husband is salty, I am sweet, and my kds have food allergies so they do not eat many prepackaged foods.

We like both, but I'd say we all lean towards sweet. I'd like to try the Cocoa Puffs treats.

I messed up first (mandatory) comments, so here it is again - We are split, sweet and salty. I would like to try the Nature's Valley Oats 'N Dark Chocolate Granola Bars

Susan Monday, May 24, 2010 at 3:09:00 AM CDT  

I want to try the Bugles to see if they taste as good as I remember. I was another one of the crowd who tried sticking them on all your fingers before you would start eating them.!!

Our family leans more toward salty snacks. I think that is because we hide the sweet snacks so they can't see them!!

Cocoa Puffs Treats Triple Chocolate--they sound the most appealing to have with my morning coffee! (which I am currently drinking) -- My family loves both sweet and salty snacks--just depends on what we're in the mood for!

My family likes both, but we lean towards the sweet. I think the Cocoa Puff Triple Chocolate could do the trick for us!
