Best Bites: Nature Valley XL Bar, Sweet & Salty: Chocolate Nut and Seed

Into the crowded marketplace of granola bars comes the latest from Nature Valley, an extra-large bar (1.87 ounces) that is bigger than the others and better tasting than most. That may have something to do with the layer of chocolate on the bottom, though the seed and nutty granola part is also good. At 250 calories (more than a Snickers bar) it is not exactly a healthy choice, but it is a nice treat if you think of it as dessert. Then again, it's also big enough to share.

Size: 14.97 ounces (8 bars)

Price: $5.99

Available: Grocery stores
