The chocolate chip chewy granola bar has a sweet and slightly oat-like scent when you peel back the wrapper. The bar is appealing to look at with whole pieces of oats, crisped rice and miniature chocolate chips. Unlike many other chewy bar brands, the Cascadian Farms Organic chewy bar does not have a drizzle of frosting across the top of the bar. Instead, the bar looks the same on top and bottom with a nice toasted coloring.
The first bite into the Cascadian Farm Organic granola bar was a mouthful of complimentary flavors. I could taste sweetness and a hint of chocolate from the semi-sweet chips as well as a nutty flavor from the rolled oats. This chewy granola bar is not sticky to the touch like others and is much firmer than the Quaker Oats chocolate chip chewy bar. It manages to be moist and chewy while retaining a bit of crunch.
