The kind folks at Cascadian Farms sent me a whole bunch of their products to review for the blog through My Blog Spark late last week. Check out the goods!
The package contained two boxes of cereal (Fruitful O’s and Cinnamon Crunch), two boxes of granola (dark chocolate almond and oats and honey) and two packages of granola bars (Fiber Right dark chocolate almond and Chocolate Chip). Normally I don’t turn product reviews around so quickly, but we’ve already tried four of these products we were so excited to get them!
The first thing I sampled was the Cinnamon Crunch cereal. I had this for breakfast Saturday and Sunday mornings and have been digging handfuls out of the box (shameful, I know) here and there. It’s so good!
On Sunday, before my run, Tim and I both snacked on a chocolate chip chewy granola bar. We both liked these quite a bit as well (though we both had the genius idea to put a little peanut butter on top to bulk it up a little—amazing!). They are chocolate chip, yes, but not too sweet, and somewhat coconutty, which I love.
I also tried a sprinkle of the dark chocolate almond granola in my yogurt both days. This is good, but I think I generally prefer fruity/nutty granola to chocolate in yogurt!
We also played around with our bread maker on Sunday. Tim saw a recipe for “Granola Bread” and we used the oats and honey in it! I haven’t tried it yet, but I tried a little bit of the granola out of the box and it was a really awesome basic granola that I think would go well in yogurt or plain with milk. Nom.
I like these products because there’s no high fructose corn syrup to be found, the calorie counts are reasonable, and, well, they taste good!
