What’s In It:
rustic rolled oat flapjack with berry-infused cranberries
I received these Flapjack snack bars in my February box from Graze.
Since these oat bars have a very ‘breakfast-y’ snack sort of taste to them, I went with a black tea, this Australian Daintree Black Tea from McIver’s. I love the way the rich, molasses-y sort of flavor melds with the flapjack snack!
What I Think:
I like the flapjack snacks from Graze. In my post about my February box, I mentioned that they’re kind of like granola bars … well, they are … and they aren’t. They have a granola bar look to them, and some similar ingredients to a granola bar, but the taste and texture reminds me more of a bowl of oatmeal that has been converted to convenient bar form.
The oats tastes sweet and nutty. It has a rustic, hearty taste and texture to it. I don’t eat oatmeal made from rolled oats often, because I prefer steel cut oats, but, I like the flavor of rolled oats in granola bars, oatmeal cookies and these.
And after mentioning oatmeal cookies … these not only remind me of a bowl of oatmeal, but a thick, soft oatmeal cookie but without the sweet dough. It’s like it has all the goodness of an oatmeal cookie without the stuff that you shouldn’t be eating.
The berries in this are cranberries that have been infused with other berry flavors. I definitely taste cranberry … do I taste the other berries? Yeah, I think I taste notes of strawberry, perhaps, and maybe blueberry.
My Final Thoughts:
I “liked” this snack. It’s really yummy and satisfying. Like I said previously, it’s a little bit like a bowl of berry studded oatmeal in bar form.
