KRAFT MILKBITE Milk & Granola Bars

Breakfast just got a whole lot easier.  

Kraft Foods has made the genius move to combine real milk and granola in one simple bar - making breakfast on-the-go that much easier. In flavors like Chocolate, Strawberry, Peanut Butter, Oatmeal Raisin and Mixed BerryKRAFT MILKBITE Milk & Granola Bars contain as much calcium as an 8 oz. glass of milk.

The folks at Laforce + Stevens were kind enough to send me their Chocolate and Strawberry bars to sample, free of charge. I have to admit, though, that while I was intrigued, I was also a little skeptical. How can these refrigerated, milk-filled bars not have an ingredient list three miles long that's 90% illegible?

After receiving the package and studying the ingredients, however, I was pleasantly surprised. While the ingredient list was a little long, the bars are made up of 99 percent legible and recognizable components (with the exception of "natural flavor" and "calcium phosphate"). To give you an example, here are the first five ingredients in each of the two flavors: Rolled oats, cream (from milk), sugar, skim milk, and inulin (chicory root fiber). The bars also claim to not include any artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. Not too shabby!

Both the Strawberry and Chocolate MILKBITE bars were also really tasty - not to mention satisfying. With 5 grams of protein each, they are a delicious snack that also has some staying power. While I couldn't eat one for breakfast by itself, the bars do make a nice mid-morning snack with my long-lasting morning iced coffee.

KRAFT MILKBITE Milk & Granola Bars can be found in the refrigerated dairy aisle for a suggested retail price of $3.49.

Have you tried KRAFT MILKBITE Bars yet? If not, will you?

Disclaimer: Although I received these MILKBITE Bars free of charge, the opinions expressed in this post are honest and 100 percent my own.


  1. I might try them as a to-go snack but I definitely couldn't just eat a granola bar for breakfast.

  2. Wow, Michelle, I must admit I was skeptical since Kraft products are almost always doped with huge amounts of poisonous high fructose corn syrup. But you've got me intrigued now! This could be something to keep in my desk at work for those rare days when I'm in a rush.
