Disappointed

Something has changed drastically. These bars no longer have a chocolate taste at all, except for the occasional dark chocolate chip. Like they left the cocoa out of the recipe. I thought I had bought a regular box by mistake, and rebought them, but no. SO disappointed. Won’t be buying more.

Flavor of chocolate has decreased as well as color. Wondering if recipe has changed. Original version was better but will still buy to go in my yogurt unless I find another flavor I like better.

The recipe has changed. I wouldn't call this dark chocolate anymore, it tastes more like oats and honey with a hint of chocolate. Disappointing.

A Once Great Product Turned Mediocre

boli95 - 2 months ago

Used to be an awesome product. The quality has gone down. I have had several purchases now that have what I can only describe as old, stale tasting granola bars. There is also less chocolate inside the bar. Nothing good lasts forever I guess, and it's a shame, these used to be the best product in the market.

WHAT HAPPENED??

Not the same! What happened? No longer a dark chocolate color nor do they have much of a chocolate taste. And of course "shrinkflation" is evident in the size of the bars. 😞

What happened to the chocolate? These used to be the beat bars. Only ones my daughter and I eat. And I purchase 6 boxes a week! The dark chocolate is gone. They are plain granola with a couple chocolate chips. Bring back the good dark chocolate bars!!

What happened?

MyRealNameIsJoe - 3 months ago
originally posted on naturevalley.com
They used to be good, but now they are so bad and bland. No chocolate. Some bars are rock hard, others might as well be eaten like bagged granola. Sometimes the sweetness is just out of control, sometimes it tastes like cardboard. And where is the chocolate?? It's just oats and some noxious diluted chocolate syrup or something. Just gross. They are wildly inconsistent now, every box is a role of the dice and honestly after giving them a year to get back to old form, I can no longer continue to roll the dice. I guess thankfully the dark chocolate and peanut butter ones are usually reliable.

They used to be good! What happened to the chocolate? Seriously, change thecrecipe back to what it was before. Or, change the name to Crunchy Oats for Horses. I'm already eating a granola bar, why did you take the joy of chocolate out of these?

Chocolate crunchy granola bars bad now

The dark chocolate crunchy granola bars have changed. The dark chocolate bits are gone, the chocolate flavor on the oats is gone, they’re smaller and very crumbly. SOOO disappointing- our family used to love them- I don’t buy anything Nature Valley anymore.

The bars fell apart before I got the package opened. Lots of crunchy bits in the wrapper. It made a mess eating such a crimbly bar. A disappointment.

I love chocolate. I love the nature valley crunchy honey and oats granola bars. I cannot stand these. There’s not enough chocolate, and the chocolate that there is tastes awful. I forced myself to get through the two bars the first time I had it. Went to eat another serving at a later date, and I couldn’t even finish the first of the two bars, threw that package and the whole box out. I like the concept, but something is just wrong in the formula for the chocolate, and it just doesn’t pair well with the oat mixture used.

Sometimes stale

These are inconsistent--they often taste stale to me. It's not the packaging or sell-by date; those are fine. But the bars just don't taste right. When they do taste fresh, they're pretty good.

Nature Valley: Please listen to your customers

1 out of 5 stars
tl35 - 4 months ago
originally posted on naturevalley.com
For months, Nature Valley has responded to all the negative reviews with the same "We are sorry to hear you were disappointed with the taste. We'll share your feedback with the rest of our team." General Mills and its Nature Valley department are not credible anymore. The chocolate bars have almost no discernable chocolate and they are aware of this. The decision has been made to cheapen the bars (and the Peanut Butter Bars). General Mills doesn't care about its customers, or it would have reformulated the recipes. Perhaps a boycott might make an impact on this company. I've stopped buying these granola bars.

No longer worth buying

I used to eat these at work several times per week. They WERE really good. I bought a box recently, took a bite, and had to pull the box back out to see if I had bought the wrong kind. No chocolate taste and not appealing at all. Throwing out the rest of the box, and I am someone that hates to waste but hard pass. Unless the product is restored to the prior recipe, I won't be buying any more.
