Episode 71: Granola Bars


When we were in grade school, bringing a granola bar in your lunch box was a key factor in the daily struggle to avoid ostracism. But you had to pledge to one of the rival gangs: the Crunchies, the Chewies, or the Kudos. Learn about our secret gang tattoos and…actually, we just eat a bunch of granola bars. http://www.spilledmilkpodcast.com

    Hey Molly and Matthew! Thanks for bringing back some great memories. My third grade teacher used to give us kudos bars when we did well on tests as if to say, you know, ‘kudos to you.’ Also I checked as you probably did later and ‘kudos’ is indeed a singular word in itself. Good thing nobody ever tried to pull any of that ‘kudo’ crap on this grammar psycho back in the third grade.

    Oh man. I used to have a peanut butter Kudos bar after school every day. I haven’t seen them at any grocery store in AGES.

    Kudos/kudo, pantyhose/pantyho……you guys always make me laugh! A funny blog about words to check out The Dictionary Eyes. Off to buy some granola bars…..

    Nature Valley does indeed make a chewy granola bar and it’s delicious– not too sweet and full of raisins, almonds, oats, and dried cranberries. We have a giant box of them from Costco.

    Ever try the Carnation Breakfast Bars? They were like a less chewy Kudos, totally coated in chocolate and marketed as breakfast food. I haven’t seen them in ages, but they were my breakfast for much of my childhood.

    As for the square Nature Valley Thins- they’re tasty but each is individually wrapped, with a paper insert too, so by the time you actually ate enough to dent your hunger you’d have a huge pile of garbage.
