Quaker Chewy Granola Bars--Safe Versions
« on: July 16, 2012, 09:26:31 AM »
I just bought two boxes of safe Quaker Chewy Granola Bars.  There's an apple and a berry flavor.  They're made in Canada.  The box looks different than the normal granola bars; the packing has a lunchbox design on it and states that it follows school safe policies.  I found them at my local Target. 
 
DD has had both flavors and has not had a problem. 
 
Just thought I would share.

Thank you Maeve!

I bought 6 boxes yesterday at Target also (on sale for 2 for $4.00).  I wish they would do this with the other flavors too.

How can you be sure they are safe?   Did you call or is it the fact that they are made in Canada?

Didn't call.  Read the label and they are manufactured in Canada.  We've had the Canadian version of these and they match.

I just noticed them the other day in our Target. They say School something and are in a lunchbox type box. Really excited. But I think the box was labeled US not canada.

I bought the Quaker chewy granola bars. Best berry and amazing apple. Made in Canada. I haven't called. Wish they had the chocolate chip ones.
