KRAFT MILKBITE MILK & GRANOLA BARS Introducing a snack like nothing else – Product Review

Recently I had the opportunity to try out the new MILKBITE’s Milk & Granola Bars from Kraft Foods. Best snack I’ve tried in a long time, that’s all I can say.

 

They are meant to be refrigerated because they contain real milk and calcium. It is the perfect snack for someone who is constantly on the go like me. Not only are they convenient and priced respectively but they are super yummy.

 

I was sent both the chocolate and the strawberry MILKBITES. The chocolate was very good and my hubby preferred that one over the strawberry since he’s a chocoholic.

 

 

I was completely obsessed with the strawberry. I prefer fruits over chocolate flavors. I can’t quite explain it but it reminded me of something from my childhood. It tasted a lot like strawberry shortcake but it was pint sized and perfect to travel with, plus no mess. I loved the strawberry so much that before I even finished the box I had it written down on my grocery list to purchase. I love them!!!

 

Here’s the deets on Kraft MILKBITES:

 

 

It’s a brand new, exciting product from Kraft Foods called KRAFT MILKBITE Milk & Granola Bars.

 

KRAFT MILKBITE Bars are a new, unique innovation in snacking made with real milk and calcium to provide the same calcium as an 8 oz glass of milk.  A wholesome alternative to existing bars, KRAFT MilkBite Bars are a deliciously different snacking experience the entire family can enjoy!

 

Found in the refrigerated dairy aisle, each KRAFT MILKBITE Milk & Granola Bar combines real milk with whole grain granola and other tasty and nutritious ingredients like fruit or roasted nuts, while offering 30% of your daily recommended value of calcium.
