Hey, it’s me again with another update on a recall that is going on that I needed to tell you about. There are a couple of varieties of Nature Valley bars that are currently being recalled due to possible Listeria being contained within them. This is a type of recall where the manufacturers are doing everything possible to fill in the public on this so that we can all be safe. I have been a big fan of the Nature Valley bars for quite some time and know that these recalls aren’t the best thing but they do happen. Don’t give up on the company itself because of something that was most likely out of their control. As far as I know, this recall is only affecting certain flavors of the Simply Nut and Protein chewy line.
Don’t Let a recall sour you, try these other flavors
If I hear any additional information about other kinds of bars being recalled, I will post it here for you. After all of the recall speculation dies down, I wanted to present some information about the bar flavors that I like, as you might end up enjoying them too! I will often grab some of the oat and honey variety of these bars, as you can get a variety pack for pretty cheap and they taste awesome. Nature Valley even offers a sweet and spicy chili bar, I am not quite adventurous enough to give those a shot. If you have had the chance to try the sweet and spicy chili granola bar, let me know how that tastes.
I know that a recent trend of chocolate being added to peppers has become popular but I don’t have the guts to combine sweet and hot, it’s just not a taste that I would be into. Adding to that, they are loaded with fiber and protein, which are two essential ingredients that anyone who cares about nutrition should be getting enough of throughout the day. Don’t let one story like this one, sour you from trying anything from this company. I have been purchasing these nutrition bars from the store, since around ten years ago and have never had so much as a single problem after I have eaten them. I also know that any company who puts the recall information out there, to be on the safe side, that this is a company that you can trust and stand behind.
I have heard it mentioned that the Clif bars have also been under a similar type of recall. I would have to say that the same is true of the Clif bars, as well as the Nature Valley bars, both companies make delicious and healthy options for those of us who need that on the go type of nutrition. I have seen some people go about making their own granola bars at home but this seems too tricky for me to attempt, I am just not that good of a cook.
I had actually tried making these bars in the past and I failed miserably at it. It was funny because the final results of my homemade granola bars looked like something out of a science fiction film, like an alien! Let’s all put the pitchforks down and let these companies get this recall resolved and we can all go back to enjoying those delicious and nutritious treats before we know it!
