We commend Quaker for venturing further into the healthy snacks category with another addition to their Stila line. However, the amount of preservatives and artificial flavors found in these products leaves them far from hitting the mark of an actual healthy product. The balls themselves do not resemble the beautiful pictures on the box and individual bags. You could tell these snacks were built to last since they were very hard and had very little taste. Mass producing snacks that are meant to last months if not years on the shelves makes for a very poor snack. While the idea of chewy ball of oats, cranberries, peanuts and amaranth sounds great. the execution of the product could be improved upon.
