Kraft MilkBite Review

Once I find a brand that I like, I am loyal to that brand for years. I like to find new brand favorites of course, but there are certain products that I only buy from the brand I am loyal to. I've been a long-time fan of Kraft cheeses and snack products for years. They are one of the only cheese brands I will buy. I trust Kraft for quality, taste, and price. Kraft has stood the test of time and has been popular for many, many years. There's a reason why.

Kraft is a global snacks powerhouse with an unrivaled portfolio of brands people love. They market crackers, confectionery treats, beverages, cheeses, grocery products, and convenient meals in approxmiately 170 countries. Most people don't realize that Kraft makes more than just cheese and macaroni and cheese.

When I heard that Kraft had recently introduced a line of milk and granola bars, I knew I wanted to try them. Kraft MilkBite milk and granola bars are made with real milk and calcium, making them an excellent source of calcium with 30% of the daily recommended value. They are a great source of vitamin D and fiber, include 5g of protein, 7g of whole grains, and no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. They do need to be kept refrigerated though. The bars come in five delicious flavors-chocolate, strawberry, peanut butter, oatmeal raisin, and mixed berry. Each box contains five bars. A flavor everyone's taste buds!

I was sent two boxes of Kraft bars to review, chocolate and strawberry. The bars came in a cute Kraft lunchbag too! I'm a big fan of most granola bars, so I had a good feeling that I would like these.

The lunch bag is perfect for keeping my lunch cold at work. It's spacious inside as well.

I tried the chocolate one first, of course. :) The bar is a small rectangular sized treat. It has chocolate chips inside and on the top and was drizzled with beautiful chocolate on top. The bar was thicker and denser than most granola bars than I am used to, which I liked. The snack was chewy, fresh, and full of great granola and chocolate taste. The chocolate flavor was prevalent, but not overly sweet. I enjoyed that the bar was cold, it was refreshing. It would be the perfect cool treat on a hot summer's day too. The bar would also be a nice, healthy snack to throw in a lunchbox or for a mid-day pick-me-up. I like that it has whole grain and protein benefits. I'm all for anything that tastes great and has health benefits too.

The strawberry was very enjoyable as well. The size of the bar was the same size as the chocolate one. The bar had white icing drizzled generously on the top. There were chunks of strawberries on top and inside. The strawberry chunks were large and full of flavor. The flavor of strawberry was noticeable and the treat was very fresh. Each bite was packed with an equal amount of strawberry chunks and granola. In my opinion this bar was a little sweeter than the chocolate, but not so overly sweet. This would be a great snack to keep in your fridge at work if you need a sweet treat during the day. It's also equally as perfect to throw in a child's lunchbox for school. Keep an icepack in there to keep it cold though.

Each bar contains 140 calories which isn't terrible, but remember it's not an extremely low-calorie snack.

I've enjoyed the bars that I've tried so far and I look forward to trying the other MilkBite flavors!
