Trader Joe's Five Seed Almond Bars Review

Trader Joe's Five Seed Almond Bars

Today we're reviewing Trader Joe's Five Seed Almond Bars. These unassuming bars can be eaten for a quick breakfast, an afternoon snack, or something a little sweet for dessert. 

What are the 5 seeds, you ask? Well, the seeds are flax, sesame, poppy, sunflower, and pumpkin. I'll tell you a little secret: the second ingredient listed for these bars is RAISIN PASTE. That's the key to the sweetness and the soft-chewy texture of these bars.

She says (Bridget): These bars are one of my favorite Trader Joe's buys. The texture of these is spot on, soft yet chewy, with a little crunch from the seeds and almonds. These are chock-full of seeds: poppy, flax, sunflower, sesame, and pumpkin, but the bar eats more like a cookie than a granola bar. They're very lightly spiced and not too sweet. I love these for breakfast or for a snack. They feel substantial for just 110 calories.
Overall rating: 5 of 5 stars

He says (Jack): I love these primarily because they're not too nutty. Sometimes you'll find those bars that are composed entirely of nuts... well, I'm not a huge fan of those. The base dough of the bar itself is sweet and reminds me somewhat of pumpkin. The variety of seeds is very noticeable but doesn't hold an absolute dictatorship over your taste buds like some of those bars I mentioned earlier. The only thing I could possibly think to critique is that the bars sometimes tend to break up a bit if you're handling them a lot... but hey, it's food!
Overall rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Would we buy these again? We have many times over!
