450961450961B001OCKIBYAIBRTGBN07D6AScott0031245888000Taste pretty good, but more like a candy bar than a granola barThese are referred to as "granola bars" on the box, however they don't taste anything like a granola bar. They are very sweet, likely due to the honey and salt. "Granola" is one of the very last ingredients listed, which means there is very little of it in each bar, possibly just enough so they can use the term "granola bar" in their labeling. But if you like "corn syrup," you are in for a treat because it is the second ingredient on the list.

Now, I don't want to state these are unhealthy. They do have 12g of fat (18% of your DRV), but only 1.5g of that is saturated. The rest are polyunsaturated and monounsaturated, which are healthy fats that comes from the almonds and nuts. Although at 220 calories apiece, and 13g of sugar, I would not advise anyone to eat several of these a day, thinking they are getting a healthy snack.

The box refers to these as "big" nut bars. They try to back up this claim by stating they are "30% bigger than the leading nut & granola bar." I do not know what the leading bar is that they're referring to, so this claim has no merit to me. Also, the words "30% bigger" is in a huge font, while the rest is in tiny type that is almost invisible. I think this is fairly deceptive, considering that this bar is filled with a lot of air and water vapor, and is designed to be very easy to chew and swallow. Sure the bar might be 30% bigger in size, but the nuts aren't packed as closely together and air takes up a lot of space. Not to mention that a large portion of the bar is syrup, compared to the leading bar, which is likely more nuts. And the bar is probably 30% smaller than the leading candy bar, which is what it should be measured up against.

This isn't a bad product as long as you know what you're eating and realize that it's not really a granola bar. It does taste pretty good in my opinion, and if I had to compare it to anything, I would say it tastes a lot like Fiber One Bars Oats & Chocolate, 5-Count Boxes (Pack of 12). When I'm eating a "peanut" or "granola" bar, I don't want to sea corn syrup, salt, and sugar at the top of the ingredients list. I want to see nuts, nuts, and more nuts.

450962450962B001OCKIBYACQYIC13JXAOITooncesmom0041245888000A pleasant alternative to plain granolaThey're 30% larger than leading nut and granola bars with an advertised 7 grams of protein, but I'm not sure how to describe them. They don't seem like a granola bar; in fact oats is well down the rather long list of ingredients and granola is in the "less than 1.5%" category. That said, they also don't resemble a candy bar except in the loosest sense. Having never eaten a Payday bar, I cannot attest to what others have said about this comparison. Here's what's important: 5 - 46 gram bars are in each box, each containing 220 calories, 12 grams of total fat, 23 grams of carbohydrate and 230 milligrams of sodium. The main ingredients in order are: peanuts, corn syrup, crisped rice, peanut butter and sugar with lesser amounts of rolled oats, almonds and cashews.

I found the flavor quite good, peanuts being the overall flavor. However, I feel there are better tasting granola bars, and I am not a huge peanut fan. Still, this bar is pleasant-tasting and a satisfying snack, if sugar (13 grams) and carbs are not a problem. So, with those caveats noted, I can recommend the Planter's Big Triple Nut Bar.
450963450963B001OCKIBYA1484U2Y4YFX2RScott Richardson0041245888000Big, nutty, and filling!Normal granola bar-type snacks quash my hunger for half an hour or so, but then it gradually comes crawling back. However, I found Planters Big Nut Bars to be far more filling (they're bigger, so they're more filling). Also, they have large chunks of almonds, peanuts, and cashews, which provide a nice crunch amid the chewy bar. They're a bit sticky, but if you hold the wrapper while you eat them, you're set. Recommended.
450964450964B001OCKIBYA14DNCG5WHM86ZJennifer0041245888000Nutty, chewy, sweet - what more do you want?Our first impression of these was: Chewy! You see, they were delivered on a 90+ degree day, so they were really warm and chewy...which led to our second impression: Yum!

You could actually see the nuts in the bars (see my photos), although it was mostly peanuts and some almonds--no cashews in sight. They tasted mostly of peanuts, though. The bars were sweet, but not overly sweet. It was a bit more satisfying than your typical run-of-the-mill granola bar because it was bigger (see my photo, compared to a dollar bill) and just felt heftier.

Is this a truly healthy snack? Of course not. Is it better than a candy bar? Well, that depends what you mean by better, LOL.

This is a tasty little morsel that is easy to throw in a bag for eating on-the-run (although I agree with another reviewer that they tend to be on the sticky side, so beware).
450965450965B001OCKIBYA7T1NIWZHTC4PSeven Kitties "7kitties"0041245801600Yummy but....The packaging on the box compares this to a traditional granola bar, boasting that these are '30% bigger' than your average granola bar. Yes, that's true. But I took the liberty of comparing the bars with an actual trail mix bar (the kind with nuts so it's a fair comparison), and here's what you get in that '30% more': 220 calories (as opposed to 140 in the comparison bar), more than TWICE as many fat calories, three times the saturated fat, almost three times the sodium.

They're about equal in sugars and total carbs.

On the winner side, this bar has more protein (7g as opposed to 3g) and three times the dietary fiber.

It's also undeniably delicious. Seriously, this is a yummmmmmmmmy bar.

However, if you think that it's really a good replacement for a granola or health bar, think again. It's a candybar minus the chocolate. It's salty and sweet in just the right proportions to be delectable, yes. But it's not a 'granola bar'.

Another irk: again, with the five bars per box. This is a rip-off, and a waste of packaging. There is no way to pack five bars in your standard bar-box and not have some rattling around. It's obviously a scam, and it really irritates me. Charge me for the extra bar, for heaven's sake! I'd rather pay and eat than feel gypped.

I could definitely see myself buying these bars again, but cutting them in half, and using them as a lunchtime treat. Super yummy, but don't be fooled by the 'granola' hype.
450966450966B001OCKIBYA25C2M3QF9G7OQComdet0041245801600Very enjoyable, but a wee bit too stickyI really enjoyed these bars - lots of nuts, held together in a soft, chewy formulation -- a nice change from the customary granola bar. Big pieces of nuts, which also is a nice change from the "nut dust" that you sometimes find in snack bars.

The only negative, and the reason for the one star drop, is that it is really sticky. I tend to eat these types of bars on the run, and often don't have easy access to a wet nap to clean up. You have to be really careful to not get your hands on the bar, or you'll have very sticky fingers!

Otherwise, great product. Hope they come out with one that has chunks of chocolate in it as well!
450967450967B001OCKIBYA8WXLST0944GZJ. Powell0041245801600A little "syrupy" and hi calories but good tasteMaybe it's because I've become accustomed to my Fiber One Fiber bars, which are a little more bland, and about half the calories, that these seem very sweet to my taste.

I enjoyed them, and they filled me up as a mid afternoon snack, but I probably wouldn't eat these every day.
The bars are about 220 calories per bar, and are sticky sweet, almost like cracker jack.

Maybe a once a month treat.
450968450968B001OCKIBYA1E7BYP6JGDUHDAnonymous0041245801600like trail mix in a bar!When I saw 'BIG' on the box, my first thought was the the nuts in the bar would be big and the product definitely delivers on that end. It was almost more like a trail mix held together with peatnut butter, and not so much granola-y, with surprisingly large pieces of nuts. As far as the bar being so much bigger than other granola bars, I wouldn't say that I particularly noticed it being huge, only that that it wasn't super tiny like bars seem to be getting these days, which I think is a good thing. I hate opening up a little package to find it half filled with air and a tiny snack inside! I liked the flavor, not too sweet, and would purchase them again if I saw them at the store.
450969450969B001OCKIBYA1B6O7SAIYG2N0Jacx "J.C."0031245801600Nutty chewy goodPeanuts, almonds, and cashews, tasty trio. Corn syrup is the second listed ingredient. Nice nutty odor and flavor, a little sticky. Reminds me of a Nut Roll without the white chewy sugar center. Only 5 in a box that could easily held 6 if not 8. I give it a 3; if they took out the corn syrup I would give it a 4.
450970450970B001OCKIBYA1FXY0GUFHEI59reg0031245801600They are nutty - peanuttyI just tried the Planters Big Nut Bar. It does have a very nutty flavor, as you would expect. It didn't taste stale to me, just not like nuts fresh out of the shell. The bar was very chewy and there is some crisp rice in it to add to the crunch. It says the bar is 30% bigger than the leading nut and granola bar, but since I don't know which one that would be, I have to say I don't think these are particularly large. I'm glad they aren't any bigger because each one is 220 calories.

I like nuts and do like the taste of these, but I think I will probably stick to my plain almonds.
450971450971B001OCKIBYA1UQBFCERIP7VJMargaret Picky0011245801600Mr. Peanut, shame on you!I was all excited to get these Planters Big Triple Nut Bars because the photo on the box looks like crispy peanut brittle studded with giant almonds and cashews. Even better, there's my good friend Mr. Peanut tipping his top hat with one white-gloved hand, holding his cane at a jaunty angle in the other. He's got such a big grin on his face, I know he's winking at me from behind that monocle! Yes, the box says "chewy granola bars", but I thought that would mean that they are both delicious AND healthy.

Wrong! Mr. Peanut, how could you do this to me?

First of all, the packaging is very deceptive. The box could hold 10 or 11 bars instead of 5. Yes, it's more than twice the volume of the product it holds and that is deceptive. The photo of the bar itself is enlarged approximately 100% so maybe that was the excuse. In reality, the bars are very small, weighing a tad over 1 1/2 ounces each and measuring about 1 1/4 inches wide by 4 3/4 inches long by 5/8 of an inch thick.

The smell is okay, like roasted peanuts, pretty much what you would expect.

But what about the taste?

The flavor is pretty much one note, peanuts. That's the only thing I could taste. Normally, that would be a good thing because I love peanuts! Unfortunately, the peanuts taste stale and have an unpleasant aftertaste. The bars are also way too sweet and much too salty. (I had to brush my teeth and use mouthwash both to get rid of the taste.)

I couldn't see any cashews or almonds in the bar at all. I did finally find one and a half very small almonds buried inside as I broke off each bite looking for the nuts. I couldn't identify any cashews by sight or by taste and I could identify the almonds only by sight and by the slight crunch, no almond flavor either.

The texture (other than the tiny crunch from the almonds) is like soft peanuts mixed with cornmeal and coated in sticky soft goo. I really didn't enjoy the texture at all, it just didn't feel good on my teeth when biting down.

I'm not surprised I couldn't tell the cashews from the peanuts but I couldn't even tell the oats from the peanuts by texture or taste and barely by sight because of the sticky goo.

Honestly, I don't know what was worse, the soft sticky texture or the cheap bitter peanut taste or the overwhelming sweetness or the heavy saltiness.

Actually, I do know what is worse than all of that: the ingredient list and nutrition information. The box touts the 7 grams of protein but neglects to highlight the 12 grams of fat and 23 grams of carbohydrates. (An ounce is a little over 28 grams so that's quite a bit of fat and sugar.)

The one good thing I see is a lot of vitamin E because of the tocopherols added as a flavor preservative.

Other things that bother me are that the crisped rice is rice flour, sweeteners are listed eight times, and almonds and cashews are listed just before the under-1.5% ingredients. Since peanuts aren't really nuts (they're legumes), I think putting "Big Nut Bars" and "Triple Nut" on the package is very deceptive given the scarcity of the cashews and almonds and calling them granola bars is a bit of a stretch as well.

It may seem silly to give such a long review of these candy bars but I really felt let down by Planters, Kraft, and especially Mr. Peanut. I know these aren't gourmet brands but my experience is that they have consistently decent quality. It really seems like this product was just an excuse to use up low-quality and leftover ingredients by creating a sweet, salty snack food to make people fat and give them diabetes and cavities. Offhand, I can't think of a less enjoyable way to eat 220 calories especially when almost half of them are from fat.

I'm sorry, Mr. Peanut, but I think it is kinder to be honest with you because we've been friends for such a long time. I would want you to tell me if I didn't taste good to you, either!
450972450972B001OCKIBYA1TRAEV7QWA5DXB. Webster0041245801600Good but not a health barThis is a nice size bar at a nice size calorie count too - 220 calories.

It is tasty, sweet and savory at the same time. It is larger than a comparable bar like Fiber One.

Here is my comparison between Fiber One and Planters. Obviously there is a little difference since the Planters Bar is larger:

Planters-Honey Roasted Peanuts, almonds and cashews:

46 grams in weight-1 bar

Fat Calories 100
Total Fat 12 grams

Total Fat 3.5 grams

Don't get me wrong, I liked the Planters Bar, but if you are trying to cut down on calories and fat and get some daily fiber, I would go with the Fiber One.

I gave this product a 4 star rating in that it is not in my opinion a true Granola Bar. I like it. I think it tastes good, but probably it is not the healthiest choice.
450973450973B001OCKIBYA18GJ9MYYO6GCQJust ask me! "bronxgal"0031245801600Could be nuttierOur old friend Mr. Peanut is now in the granola bar business.
These bars contain peanuts, almonds and cashews, but since they're "honey roasted" and contain corn syrup, sugar, evaporated cane juice, and sugar, they are sweeter than this consumer would want, and the flavor of the nuts doesn't come through. That said, they are only 220 calories, so could be a good quick snack with seven grams of protein (albeit 12 grams of fat, which one would expect from nuts). If I were a suspicious sort, I'd wonder if the various sugars added so that the manufacturer can say that less than half the calories come from fat.
450974450974B001OCKIBYA3V1AHX8P4R839Forrest Wildwood "Phil"0051245801600Nice snack barPlanters big nut bar has just the right mixture of sweet and salty flavoring. Neither overpowers the other and makes for a pleasant tasting treat. Each bar has seven grams of protein with 230mg of sodium and 13g of sugar. These chewy granola style bars would make an excellent addition to any outdoor adventure or after school snack. If you like nuts, this peanut almond cashew bar is well worth having on hand.
450975450975B001OCKIBYAM8W6Y3HVXLZTD. P. Schroeder "Paukenwirbel"0051245801600DELICIOUS and well-sized.These nut bars truly taste great, and the "30% bigger" size is just the right size for me for a snack. They also strike the perfect balance between chewy and crunchy -- there's no gooey-ness, and they aren't too sticky. A well conceived bar.

I'd be happy with their taste even if they had a slightly lower salt content, but the sodium levels don't really raise any eyebrows.

What I found interesting is that they use "mixed tocopherols" as flavor preservatives, which makes good chemical sense, as tocopherols are natural antioxidants, and this preservative (essentially Vitamin E) makes for a good nutritional supplement as well. All I'd warn against is that since you can ingest too much Vit E, and these bars contain 110% of the USRDA (roughly 33IU) of Vit E, and many multivitamins have as much as 500% of the USRDA, it might not be wise to sit around and eat several boxes of these per day....

....Even though they taste good enough to! I'll be watching for these to come onto the snack market. Great product!
450976450976B001OCKIBYA2K21ZQVNBVUDIL. Kornblum0041245715200Great tasting candy barIf you love candy bars like Payday or Pearson's Salted Nut Roll, then you'll want to try this one, too. It's more like a granola bar than a nut roll. Instead of nuts rolled around a nougat or caramel center, this bar has peanuts (and far fewer almonds and cashews) mixed in with rice and oats. Don't buy it if you're looking for a healthy snack; just try hard not to think about all the sugar (in 6 forms), salt, and fat (including cottonseed and coconut oils) the bar is loaded with as you enjoy this tasty treat.
450977450977B001OCKIBYA32N4PP4MQHVUOmom23boys "mom23boys"0051245715200Excellent! 7 grams potein - and great salty sweet taste!I have to say I was very surprised when I tried these bars! I LOVED them! They have a great salty sweet taste with a chewy texture and crunchy nuts. I really liked the 7 grams of protein and the larger size of the bars (length wise they are much bigger than a regular granola bar). Even my picky-eater 3-year-old asked for a second bar! That's impressive! :)

If I had to come up with a complaint it would be that I wish they could be lower in fat. Each bar has 12 grams of fat -- however being packed full of nuts the fat content is to be be expected.

Overall these bars are excellent! A great alternative instead of having the same ol' granola bar every day. :)
450978450978B001OCKIBYA2KFWHHUFVKFXZLaura B0041245715200a good snack for energyI'm a big fan of granola bars, cereal bars, and the like. I'm also a fan of peanuts.
They are a good snack when in need of an energy boost. Plenty of protein and fiber.
I wouldn't call them healthy, though. They have plenty of sugar in them and are pretty sticky. I found there was more crisped rice than I was expecting. And although this is called "triple nut," the almonds and cashews seemed like an afterthought--they are pretty far down on the list of ingredients.
This would be a good snack for hiking or exercising when you are in need of some replenishing. It satisfied my after-work hunger, too, but I don't think I will indulge myself too often, especially if I've had a big lunch. The 220 calories is a lot for one granola bar--it is 30% larger than most granola bars, but it also has all the extra calories.
Both my husband and I liked these bars and would buy more for the occasional snack. Good, nutty taste. Less sugary than a candy bar (like a Baby Ruth) and more nutty than other granola bars (like the Nature Valley nut bars).
450979450979B001OCKIBYA18S2A07LBNVNFBucky0051245715200Sweet, Savory, Delicious! I Loooved These Bars!I loved these nut bars! They have lots of honey roasted peanuts, almonds, and cashews mixed into a granola base of oats, wheat, crisped rice and coconut. But I couldn't really taste the coconut so that came as a surprise to me when I read the ingredients. They are sweet and savory, perfect for a snack when a quick pick-me-up is needed. They have just the right amount of chewiness, not too tough, but not so soft that the bar falls apart.

The bars are larger than regular granola bars, and each one has 220 calories, 12g of fat, 23g of carbs and 7g of protein. Sodium is 230mg per bar and fiber is 3g.

The mouth feel was just right, and the taste was neither overwhelmingly sweet or salty, just a bit of both. I will definitely pick these bars up when I see them at the grocery store.
450980450980B001OCKIBYAMRMK86X3PKXDR. Thomasson0051245715200Great for what it is.Make no mistake, this is a candy bar. It is not a "health" bar, "energy" bar or other pseudo-healthy chunk of hemp and flax seed. That being said the Planters Big Nut Bars are good candy. They have a nice balance of sweet and salty, with a very nice texture, somewhere between soft and crunchy. There are plenty of nuts, and the bar is filling and satisfying, at 220 calories it had better be.
450981450981B001OCKIBYA13MKSASQ6YWL7Brad Willis0041245715200Tasty but too high in caloriesTo begin, I definitely think that the taste of Planters Big Nut Triple Nut Bars is very good. I like roasted nuts and these are very nutty. The dominant taste is that of peanuts, but as we know, Planters is known for their nuts.

The label states that these "big bars" are 30% larger and therein lies the problem, from my perspective. They are also 30% higher in calories. Also, because of the larger size, there are only 5 bars per box versus the usual 5.

I would much prefer that they reduce the size by 30% and give me 6 nut bars per box. This would cut the caloric content from 220 down to about 150 calories per bar, lessening the guilt factor and giving one an extra bar to enjoy.

So the product itself is pretty good, but I think that the portion is too large.
450982450982B001OCKIBYA109L3WXD1SJFUCookbook Gal "Cookbook Gal"0031245715200OK, not peanutty enough for meThis bar is OK - calorie laden at 220 calories. It's chewy, not crispy, and while the peanut flavor predominates, I was hoping it would pack more of a peanut whallop, because I love that. If you are looking for a mildly peanutty, chewy bar, this one is for you. It just seemed a bit bland to me.
450983450983B001OCKIBYAN81JUYW2SL24Charlie0051245715200WOW - THIS IS REALLY GOOD!I've always enjoyed a granola bar or cereal bar as part of my lunch. So I was anxious to open the box to the Planters "Big Nut Bars." I noticed that it was advertised as being 30% bigger than the leading nut and granola bar, possibly to sway the customer in perceiving the value of the Planter's product. The 7 grams of protein was expected due to the protein-rich nuts used in the bar, but what surprised me the most was the 110% Vitamin E per serving. Unfortunately, each box only contains 5 of these delicious bars.

The taste of peanuts is overwhelming in a good way. I could taste a hint of the cashews and almonds, but the honey roasted peanuts were like a taste of ambrosia. It was the dominant taste, followed by the crunchy puffed rice and oats. The bottom line is these bars are absolutely delicious! The bar is very soft and chewy, and it won't stick to your teeth like hard caramel or molasses.

Pros: Great peanut taste, 110% Vitamin E, good source of protein.

Cons: Only 5 per box, would it really hurt to pack 6 or 8 bars per box?
450984450984B001OCKIBYA9GPCR9WJQCCJJim "gearhead4"0041245715200A satifying snack barOften, snack bars are loaded with grains and some artificial sweetener that leaves you wanting something else. The triple nut content of these Planters nut bars hits the spot for me. I enjoy the balance of protein, fat and carbs that are offered by this nutty snack.
It's not a diet bar or a meal bar. It instead offers a nutty alternative.
450985450985B001OCKIBYA18LBGL7L9FEZVLarry0051245715200Likeable nutty barIf you like nuts; peanuts, almonds and cashews, with crisped rice glued together with sugar and corn syrup, then this bar is for you! The peanuts and cashews are in pieces and the almonds tend to be whole. Other ingredients include oats, wheat and coconut.

The bar actually tastes good and is satisfying for a mid-morning or late afternoon snack. It mainly tastes like peanuts. Honey roasted peanuts. It does contain 220 calories and 13g of sugars in a 46 g bar. The bar is not hard like Nature Valleys but a softer chewy bar.
450986450986B001OCKIBYA353U0L2HAMSHVCricket "Living life and loving it!"0051245715200Nutty, sweet and a little bit saltyOkay these are good and I mean eat the whole box in a day good! I'm always buying and trying the newest granola or snack bar that shows up on my grocers shelf, but I hadn't seen these yet.

Each bar is packed FULL of nuts, the amount of "filler" is very small compared to most bars. It has a great nutty taste and although I'd say it's close to being too sweet, I think the saltiness helps balance it out. I do wish that the box came with more than five. In my household we have two kids which means two lunches and given the odd number....well I guess I'll just have to eat one myself to even it out.

These bars are by no means a "health food". Beyond the nuts, which are better eaten raw, this has a good amount of sugar, fat and calories. I'd say they're best for a snack on the go or a treat in your lunch. Planters has brought definite competition to some of our favorite snacks.
450987450987B001OCKIBYA28RSMADFCBJDTPete Chen0031245715200O.K. snack bars with a big boxThis snack bar has peanuts (most of the nuts in this bar are peanuts), almonds, and cashews, rice crispy sticked together with honey and sugar among others. It is a little bit sweet and salty to my liking. If you don't care about the nutritional contents, it is quite tasty and filling. The box has only five bars in it, but it is big enough to hold ten bars in it. It is kind of deceiving to have a big box with only half of it filled. This is not a snack bar for weight conscious people. It has 220 calories with 12 grams of fat and 23 grams of carbohydrates. So have it when you really need those calories or simply are craving for the taste.
450988450988B001OCKIBYA3TNM3C9ENUCFWA.M.Boughey "Poetmaster"0051245715200Great on the trails or hiking - power foodI like snacks that are portable, don't require refrigerating and give you energy, curb your hunger and above all taste good. These bars do that all the way! Now, a lot of so called "health" bars are granola based with some kind of soy or Omega 3, flax seed, corn husks, protein curd, magic ingredient, and a ton of promises. Very few live up to them. However, most aforementioned bars are between 120-170 calories with a lot of fiber, and often little fat. With 220 calories, 13g of sugar ( that's nearly three teaspoons folks) and 12g of fat, you know why they taste so good. Like most things they're also fine in moderation. Where they really score is camping, hiking or just doing outdoors stuff. There are no chocolate chips or peanut butter stuff to melt and turn the bar to smush on a hot day, they're light and easy to pack in your day pack or rucksack, and boy do they fill you up quickly. Not recommended for coach potatoes due to the high calorie and fat content, but excellent if you want a tasty treat on the move.

I'm not a big fan of almonds or cashews, so I wasn't sure how I would feel about this product. Thankfully there's enough of what I love (peanuts), that it overwhelms the taste of the other nuts. If you really enjoy almonds and cashews, this might not make you happy, but I enjoyed it.

Planters makes other chewy bars, some of which are quite tasty. But the combination of the three nuts and the larger bar size create a truly excellent blend of flavors and textures: sweet, salty, crunchy, and chewy. With a combination like that, you can't go wrong.

The only down side to this product is the fact that there are only 5 bars per package, whereas 8 is more normal. However each bar is larger than other bars. While eating this, one should be aware that the larger size means that there are 220 calories in each bar, more than a smaller bar.

But the taste is worth the cost (in money and calories)!
