Nature Valley Granola Thins

Nature Valley Granola Thins.  Have you seen these in the store?  Have you tried them?   What did you think?

My daughter brought them home about 2 weeks ago.  She said she loved them.  In fact, I never even got to try them because she kept "taking the last one".

She brought the Dark Chocolate ones, but they also have a Peanut Butter one as well, although they are 90 calories per square.   As much as she kept saying she loved them, I thought well if SHE likes them .... So I bought a box for me.

I have to say that, for me, they were OK.  In our house (specifically with Jenn) its Dark Chocolate or it doesn't exist.  These are definitely made with a thin layer of Dark Chocolate, but I have to say the "granola" part just didn't really do it for me.  It was almost like it was "missing something".  The granola layer was very dry and bland - maybe if it had some fruit or nuts or mini chocolate chips or even some "whole" oats  - something. 

I know one of the reasons she likes these (aside from the dark chocolate) is that they are packaged in a compact little square that can easily fit in her pocket or computer bag and give her something when she is needing just a little "something" to tide her over between classes.

I guess I will continue to look for my "little something".
