Review: Yotta Bars

Yotta bars are a snack food in the new tradition of hiding-vegetables-so-you-don't-notice-them. Each is a combination of granola with fruit and six to nine different vegetables. There's a bit of irony in the marketing, as they stress that they both "eat like a fruit" and "nothing beats the taste of fresh vegetables."

But enough quibbling. The bars taste good, and are certainly better for you than a candy break. I don't think that all the versions equally mask the presence of the vegetables. For example, the orange tastes just like that, but the cherry has some aftertastes that don't taste like fruit. However, those secondary flavors are pleasant, even if a bit unusual in their juxtaposition. You can get them at Whole Foods stores and various places online. List price seems to be in the $1.60 each range, though they're available for less.
