I’ve always loved common clichés and overly used phrases. It helps me… express myself and usually gives me a good laugh. Whatever your take may be on cheesy one liners being used in writing, there’s one thing I know about the granola I just sampled.
All things grow with love
I have been seeing Love Grown Granola around for the last few months, and I have been anxiously awaiting a chance to try it. Love Grown has recently gone nation-wide, but sadly none of the stores it is sold in is near my home. When Laura & the Love Grown team contacted me to ask if I wanted an opportunity to try their products (!!!!!), I jumped up and down like a five year old, regained my composure, and promptly replied with a YES!
There must have been love in the air that day because I was having a horrible day, and the email from Laura turned my mood around with her kind words and product opportunity. What can I say – I’m young and in love – with this granola.
Love Grown Granola is a Colorado based company that started small and is fast growing! They use all natural, gluten free ingredients – which makes me happy as a clam.
Love Grown has five different varieties, and I was sent three to try: Raisin Almond Crunch, Cocoa Goodness, and Sweet Cranberry Pecan.
I’m going to let the photo below speak for itself.
That would be Sweet Cranberry Pecan. Perfectly sweetened, clusters galore, with a copious amount of cranberries and coconut to round out this granola to make it my absolute favorite variety. There are two things I look for in a granola: one being clusters, the other being a lot of mix ins. This granola has it all. Chunks of lightly toasted pecans hiding in the midst of the other ingredients make for a decadent ending.
Some more food for thought – where else can you find whole almonds sticking to clusters in a bag of granola?
I’ll be waiting for you answer….
Nothing? I didn’t think so.
Raisin Almond Crunch doesn’t leave any room for guessing. It’s all there – raisins, almonds, and the clusters provide the crunch. The almonds are perfectly roasted and the flavors compliment each other perfectly. I cannot be trusted with this bag around. This stuff is going… going… gone.
After trying those two flavors, I thought to myself, “Okay Love Grown – can you top yourself?”
Meet Cocoa Goodness…
You’ll have to believe me when I tell you too much of a good thing – is a good thing. The clusters in this granola are out of control. This granola is lightly dusted with cocoa powder with mini chocolate chips hidden for a sweet surprise. It’s honest to goodness good stuff.
Check out these stats – you can’t go wrong.
You’re just going to have to act the fool when this package tells you a serving size is 1/4 cup though. It’s not going to happen. Just embrace this.
Would I buy this granola with my own hard earned money? You bet your life I would. This ain’t no puppy love folks – it’s the real deal.
When you go out and treat yourself to some Love Grown (and you should!), you’re not going to call my bluff.
