Harvest Spice blends the flavors of real apples and cinnamon while Pumpkin Spice features real pumpkin and seasonal spices. 

As with all products from Sunbelt Bakery, the Harvest Spice and Pumpkin Spice Chewy Granola Bars are made with whole grains and other high-quality ingredients and contain no preservatives or high fructose corn syrup, meaning they have the same delicious, bakery-fresh taste that people have come to expect and enjoy from Sunbelt Bakery, officials said.

The Harvest Spice Chewy Granola Bars feature a blend of apples, cinnamon and other seasonal spices and come in a Family Pack box containing 10 bars.  In addition, each bar provides nine grams of whole grains and has 110 calories per serving.  Consumer can purchase the Harvest Spice Chewy Granola Bars today at retailers nationwide, and the bars will remain available in stores for approximately eight weeks. 

The Pumpkin Spice Chewy Granola Bars are made with real pumpkin and seasonal spices to give consumers a unique, sweet taste in a granola bar that also provides nine grams of whole grains and has 110 calories per serving.  The Pumpkin Spice Chewy Granola Bars also come in a Family Pack box containing 10 bars and will become available at retailers nationwide in early October for approximately eight weeks.
