Free Granola Bar

Free Granola Bar

Free granola bar? No, thank you, I will pass on a free granola bar, but you can get yours right here, if you want to. What is wrong with me? How can I possibly not be interested in a free granola bar? Well, you see, if it is a free granola bar, it cannot possibly be good. Why can’t a free granola bar be good?

Ah, you probably think that a free granola bar cannot be any good because it is, well, free. But that is not the case. In fact, I like a free granola bar, the free part of it, that is, but I am not a big fan of granola, and I am certainly not a fan of granola bars.

This free granola bar (from Quaker) is loaded with sugar. It contains 23 g carbohydrates, only 3 g fiber and even less protein, only 2 g. According to its ingredients list, the second most abundant ingredient is corn syrup. In addition to corn syrup, it contains regular sugar, brown sugar, honey, invert sugar, corn syrup solids, fructose – you get the idea.

Why on God’s green earth does a simple granola bar need so much sugar in so many different forms? What is the point of this bar? Do I really need seven different sugars to send my blood sugar levels to the stratosphere? I do not think so.
