the best things in life are free

Posted Mar 09 2011 7:00pm

Another day, another dollar.

The apple never falls far from the tree.

As slow as molasses.

If the shoe fits.

When the tough gets going, the going gets tough.

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.

Question: What’s your favorite one line saying and/or cliche?
