"Knowing that so many people of all ages love the combination of peanut butter and chocolate, we made a new snack bar with these familiar flavors that's a sweet treat with all natural ingredients and our 7 Whole Grains," says Keegan Sheridan, natural food and lifestyle expert at Kashi.  "This new bar is sweetened with the natural goodness of dark chocolate and real fruit, so people can satisfy their sweet cravings with a nutritious treat that's ideal for positive snacking, lunchboxes and more."

Kashi's all natural TLC Peanutty Dark Chocolate Layered Granola Bars start with a chewy granola base made with peanut butter and peanut chunks for a nutty flavor.  A thick layer of real soft fruit mixed with rich, dark chocolate tops the granola along with roasted runner peanuts – a special variety from the Southeastern U.S. – and dark chocolate pieces for hearty, natural goodness you can see and taste.  In addition, these bars are free of high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors and preservatives.  Each provides real nutrition from 7 grams of whole grains, 4 grams of fiber* and 4 grams of protein from peanuts and soy crisps.

Kashi's TLC Peanutty Dark Chocolate Layered Granola Bars are now available at grocers and natural food retailers nationwide for a suggested retail price of $3.89.  For more information please visit www.kashi.com.
