I want to tell you that I immediately photographed and documented the contents of the box like a good little blogger would. However I did not. I was in a rush that day and instead I stashed my LOVE supply in the back of my cupboard and went about my day. You see I had big plans to try them all out one by one. Starting with the Cocoa Goodness (obviously).
Much to my dismay, when I finally reached back for the bag of Cocoa Goodness this is what I found
Highway Robbery! Not cool.
Thankfully Maddie had accounted for the scavenger in my household and sent me a bunch of single serving bags in addition to the full size. Cocoa Crisis averted.
But a single serving is NOT ENOUGH! For real … Love Grown’s Cocoa Goodness is life changing. Its that good. Gluten Free, honey and agave sweetened, rich with antioxidants of 100% pure cocoa and dark chocolate chips. Oh its heavenly. Just heavenly. (I quickly ordered more on Amazon)
I liken myself a Granola Connoisseur. Which is really a fancy title for granola addict. I love it, I fuel with granola before a long run or a race, I always have multiple varieties in my pantry and usually a ziplock with some kind of granola content in my purse. I have trouble leaving a grocery store without a bag and those bulk bins (where you can fill a bag with small bits of different kinds of granola) are a little slice of heaven.
But not all granola is created equal. In fact many varieties are high in fat, loaded with sugar and filled with ingredients that you cannot pronounce.
There was a time when I would try to control the ingredients in my granola by baking my own. Oh how those days have gone … Thankfully Love Grown has gone and made the BEST darn granola ever and I could never do better so the pressure to bake is off and I can enjoy my oat clusters without guilt! Sidebar … frozen grapes+Oat Cluster = refreshing sweet treat!
These Oat Clusters of LOVE have only pure ingredients, they are low in sugar and sodium. No hydrogenated oils or preservatives. Just all-natural, nutritious goodness. There are 5 Varieties. Simply Oats, Apple Walnut Delight, Raisin Walnut Crunch, Sweet Cranberry Pecan and Cocoa Goodness. My favs are the Cocoa and Simply Oats but they are all divine.
Thank you Love Grown for feeding this mama’s granola addiction and giving me a product that I happily share with the G’s. Now if I could just find a hiding place for my Cocoa Goodness!
