Who cares if sugar is the main ingredient in Entenmann’s Multi-Grain Chocolate Chip Cereal Bars. It’s also made with natural stuff like whole grains, cocoa, vanilla, water, and eggs, so it’s gotta be good for you, right? I can either savor the indulgence of grazing on this soft & chewy cereal bar with its chocolate chips and cakey cookie texture, or I can freak out over the sugar situation and eat an apple
But wait! I already ate an apple today….and a fruit-packed smoothie before that….and it’s chicken breast with brown rice & veggies for dinner, so it’s okay if I break for this 130 calorie sweet & tasty treat. You can do the same, but if your calorie consumption is through the roof just stop right here and go for a power walk. Okay?
There are obviously better, more nutritiously-packed cereal bars I could be toting to work or feeding my greedy kids, and I actually do. Quaker Chewy, Fiber One, and Nature Valley Granola Bars all keep permanent residence in my cupboard, but I was enticed by Entenmann’s multi-grain claim and I’m loving sweet taste, moist & chewy bite, plus all the chocolate chips. They’re a great, once in awhile snack to satisfy your sweet tooth without the threat of sabotaging all your hard work at the gym.
Warning! Only take one cereal bar and put the box away. These are very addictive and will train wreck your healthy efforts if you can’t eat just one.

Reactions from the Taste Test Crew
Health-hater Husband: “Why would I want that crap. Get it away from me.”
Four Greedy Kids: No official comments, but they held a wrestling match for the last cereal bar. Enough said.
Yum Up! to: Sugary cereal bars disguised as healthy food.
Yuck Down! to: The temptation to eat more than one. If you’re still developing your discipline, don’t even buy it.
