Today is a dance-off between SnackWells Peanut Butter Bars and Annie’s Organic Peanutty Bars. Both are granola-based bars with whole peanuts. One happens to be filled with sugar while the other is purely organic. So… which one is going to win?

On taste, the SnackWells wins for me hands down. We’re comparing peanut butter products, and the SnackWells was finger-licking good. Peanut butter nirvana, if you will. Annie’s tasted like just a regular old granola bar with some peanuts thrown in. Didn’t even taste like it had a bunch of organic peanut butter mixed in. (Trust me, I’m from Vermont, I know what organic peanut butter tastes like.)

Nutrition information for the two bars is as follows:

Each contains 8 grams of whole grain per serving, and 5 whopping grams of fat. Peanut butter is a fatty yummy food, so it is what it is… but it’s good fat. But SnackWells has a bunch of fiber and a ton of protein in their bar, while Annie’s has (naturally) less of each. SnackWells adds vitamins and minerals that aren’t naturally found in the product, while Annie’s keeps it natural. Annie’s also keeps the ingredients list natural while there is a lot of processed sugar and preservatives found in the SnackWells list. Kudos to both for having whole peanuts in each bar. Pretty hard to fake a peanut.

Allergens for SnackWells: peanuts, soy, milk
Allergens for Annie’s: milk, peanuts, soy, tree nuts, and wheat.

    How dare they make a peanut butter product that doesn’t taste very peanutbuttery? I mean, there are things that are sacred. And at the same time unholy. Peanut butter is such a thing. It is the abyss between heaven, hell and earth. It is devil’s food fit for angels.
