mmmmmm – Chewy Hemp Granola Bars

While visiting my local Big Lots store, a box of granola bars caught my eye. I picked up the box of Nature’s Path Sunny Hemp Chewy Granola Bars. Upon closer inspection, I noticed a very suspect leaf on the front of the box and the ingredients list includes hemp seeds. At that point, I thought WTF! Of course, I had to buy a box – $2.50 for a box of 6 bars – not bad.

Purina Hippie Chow?

The back of the box includes this serving suggestion -“Just the thing for when you’ve got the munchies.” But what about active ingredients? Do the bars contain any drugs? According to the Nature’s Path website – “Rest assured, eating our foods with hemp will not result in a positive drug test. We have our hemp products tested by two independent labs to determine the level of THC in the food. Both labs are able to test down to one part per million and report finding no detectable THC. ” What do you expect for $2.50?

A Very Non-Professional Taste Test

The bars appear to be standard chewy granola bars. I found the taste to be bland. Raisins were few and far between – one bar had none (see image below). Sunflower seeds can be tasted, but I am not a fan of sunflower seeds in a granola bar. The only pleasant flavor came from the molasses and cane syrup used to glue the granola together. Eating one bar did not produce any ‘side effects’. I will not buy another box.
