Sad news, friends. My favorite type of granola bars – Sunbelt – have made some changes. For the worse. They’ve made them quite a bit smaller. This was one of the reasons that they were better than some other brands (i.e. Quaker); they were substantially larger which made them a sufficient snack.
If you look at Sunbelt’s Facebook page, you will find a wealth of individiuals who appear to be very displeased about the changes made to the size of the individual bars. Sunbelt responded to almost every single complaint that I saw, though they had only a “canned” response that they stuck with for nearly every response:
Sunbelt Bakery We really appreciate your valuable feedback, Dean. You’re correct – the size change in our bars was based on consumer feedback saying that our bars were too high in calories. We chose to reduce the calorie count of our bars to between 110-150. Since our bars changed size, we added two additional bars per multi-pack to remain a good value.
We hope our same great bakery-fresh taste and the fact that we are delivered to your community weekly continues to set us apart. We try to maintain the best value on the market by providing our loyal customers with a no-preservative snack for any time of the day.
