Name Brand vs. Store Brand: Putting them to the Test

Name Brand vs. Store Brand: Granola Bars

I compared 3 different brands of granola bars: Kroger, Nature Valley, and Great Value. 

Here is the price breakdown: 

Kroger: $2.90

Nature Valley: $2.99

Great Value: $2.00 

The tastiest granola bar was definitely Nature Valley. You could tell it had more oats just from looking at it. The Kroger and Great Value brand were comparable, but had a little bit of a weird after taste that wasn't in the Nature Valley bars. Overall, I didn't think it warranted only buying NV. But, if you have a coupon for Nature Valley, it makes it about the cost of the Great Value brand. In that case, I would definitely buy them. 

One thing I like about Nature Valley granola bars is the variety. None of the other brands have nearly as many different varieties. I particularly love the trail mix bars and the chocolate granola thins. So, the 'best deal' is the Great Value, and the 'best tasting' is definitely Nature Valley. 

But, if you don't want to buy granola bars, try making them! This is the best recipe I've found, and has  extremely flexible list of ingredients.
