Kashi Pumpkin Spice Flax granola bars are another fan request! Somehow these have been sitting on the cereal shelf for a very long time, but when we went through the Cereal Wednesday comments over at YouTube (always an adventure) we found this request and were happy to oblige.

Kashi Pumpkin Spice Flax granola bars are part of the TLC line of products. These Tasty Little Crunchies are very tasty. They taste like the spices of a pumpkin pie. Oddly, they don’t really actually taste like pumpkin at all. Also, they’re extremely dry. I adore dry foods, for some strange reason, but this one was so dry that I almost had to pour myself a glass of water to get it down my gullet. Also, the box shows lots of luscious looking pumpkin seeds, but I couldn’t really find any, except a halved seed embedded deep into the layers of the bars. I found the flax seeds right away! Thanks, Kashi! Love my flax!

Nutritionwise, Kashi Pumpkin Spice Flax doesn’t have added vitamins or minerals and is high on fat content at 6 grams per 2 bars (one foil package), but the protein and fiber contents are also high, as is the whole grain carb count, so that’s pretty fantastic news. The first ingredient listed:

Whole grain oats! And then the grain blend that Kashi is known for shows up in the list as well.

Overall, a tasty product that forgets to deliver on the pumpkin, is a bit too dry, and isn’t high on vitamins and minerals but is high on protein, whole grains, and fiber. Solid.

    This certainly was an entertaining installment! I’m a little surprised that you still rated this one so highly. I thought that the lack of pumpkinship and the plywood-like structure would be more of an issue. I guess it’s just that tasty!

  2. It was very tasty. And I do like dry things, oddly enough. I wonder if I got a bad bar? I can’t believe everyone has to bite those with their molars.
