Kellogg's Nutri-Grain Banana Muffin Bars.... Have they dropped off the face of the earth ? I'm totally addicted to the things and suddenly I can't find them anywhere. Can anyone help ?

    Check out the Kashi bars. They have several different kinds and they're a ton healthier for you.

      I love those Kashi bars. Great stuff, but I love anything by Kashi. I was SO disappointed when they discontinued the Kashi pillows cereal. We would snack on those like crazy! Loved the apple flavor!

        I find kashi to be a bit too sweet for my taste--What about the bars, are they on the sweeter side?

          Some of the bars are sweeter than others. The Go Lean bars have chocolate so they are quite sweet. The TLC bars have more variety, Dark Cherry Chocolate is sweeter than the others, but the Trail Mix bars aren't too sweet. And the crunchy ones are great too.

          The great thing about them is the sweet flavor comes from natural ingredients, not the added sugar, so eat up!

            They are a little sweet, but the banana flavor is
            out-of-this-world ! They are super-moist and quite filling.
            I don't have any weight issues at all so I'm not adverse to something that may or may not have sugar in it. To be honest I don't read labels, if it tastes good, I'm there !

            I bought some of the Kashi Granola bars and found them totally lacking flvor - very bland, and I'm a granola fan. Is there another flavor you might recommend ? Thank you,

              Yeah, I know what you mean, a couple of them are more bland, but I guess some people prefer them that way. To me, their crunchy bars are a bit less tasty. I think the cherry/chocolate ones have really good flavor as do the trail mix bars. Their GoLean crunchy bars (which are more crispy than crunchy) are really good, get the dipped in chocolate ones.

          They're still listed on the Kellogg's site. Maybe you could email them and ask for local stores?

            I've E-mailed the web site twice and got no response. I used
            to get them at Smith's Food Store and Walmart. I've checked with both, and they indicate they don't appear on their order forms anymore.

              How annoying -- on both fronts. I hope you're able to find them!

                FWIW, the bars aren't on the discontinued list on their Web site, though they are on the hard-to-locate list. Did you try searching for them on that? They appear to be at several stores in my area (at least according to their results.) http://www.kelloggs.com/us/products/l...

                  Thank you so much. I'll give it a try and see what happens.

              Agree with the other posters, go with the Kashi products. Just take a look at the nutrition information panel on any Kellogs, General Mills or Post cereal box, then read the panel on any Kashi product - Kashi, unlike the big three, actually has significat amounts of protein and fiber in their products.

              I am hooked on the Kashi Go Lean Crunch cereal.

                I've had their new frozen meals too. They are also significantly better than the other options when you compare the nutritian facts. I don't normally eat frozen dinners, but sometimes it's nice to have one on hand just in case. These ones are actually good for you.

                Wow, come on guys, she didn't ask you to comment on her taste in cereal bars, she asked if anyone knew where to find them. Sheesh! For what it's worth, I second the e-mail suggestion. You might also stop by the customer service desk of your grocery store and ask. Likely they can tell you if Kellogg stopped distributing them or if your store just decided to stop carrying them.
