I have two great products I wanted to share with you that I recently received. It was Cascadian Farms Granola and Granola Bars. I don't know if any of you have tried their products before but this was my first time and I was totally amazed at how great that they actually tasted. Not sure why I was surprised but for some reason, I wasn't expecting it to, but boy was I fooled!
Let's start with the Fruit and Nut Granola. I normally eat my granola mixed in with my Greek Yogurt but I ran out this week and haven't had a chance to get to the store, so I just opened up the box and ate the granola right out of the box! And there was my first surprise, it was really and truly very good! It has a nice texture and slightly crunchy, which is how I love my granola but it also filled me up pretty darn quick.
Here's what's in this awesome tasting granola: delicious whole grain oats, raisins, cranberries, sliced almonds, roasted pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds.
Now, do you see why I am so gung ho on this granola? It has a lot of good stuff in there and it really does taste good. I have tasted granola in the past that didn't meet the muster, so I was very happy to find one that I can latch onto and feel good about.
You will love these Chocolate Chip Granola Bars! They are quick and easy to grab for one the go people who don't have time for breakfast but need to eat something that is good for you. They also would be good for afternoon snacks for the kids while they wait for dinner to be served. They are made with less sugar, so you won't have a bunch of sugar crazed kids running around.
Each bar is just 140 calories, with zero cholesterol and zero trans fat and only 1 saturated fat! There are actually 10 different flavors and kinds of granola bars to choose from so I imagine you will definitely find at least one or two that everyone will love.
About Cascadian Farms:
You already know that Cascadian Farm® is one of the country's leading brands of organic foods. But Cascadian Farm is also a real place — a working, active, productive farm dedicated to bringing wholesome organic food to your table.
The story of Cascadian Farm begins with the story of our founder, Gene Kahn. 40 years ago, Gene was an idealistic 24-year old grad-school dropout from Chicago, who just wanted to make a difference in the world. He recognized the delicate balance between nature and humans. Inspired by reading “Silent Spring” and “Diet For A Small Planet”, Gene wanted to go back to the land and farm in a way that would not harm the natural beauty of the earth or her inhabitants. So he set out to farm organically on a little stretch of land next to the Skagit River in the Cascade Mountains of Washington.
