Nuts About Granola

Ironically enough, Nuts About Granola was found by the gift bag organizers after they did an Internet search and discovered we were featured as the Snack of the Day on the Rachael Show almost a year to the date we went to the Emmy Awards. Sarah sent the “Snack of the Day” segment producer Nuts About Granola samples, along with information on the company. She received a call the day the package arrived (thank you package tracking) and was told Nuts About Granola was selected for the show. They were nuts about granola. . .  click here to read more about Nuts About Granola story!

I was really excited when I had gotten this Nuts About Granola/Peanut Butter. I absolutely am a huge fan of anything that is peanut butter related. Although I only got a 2oz. bag of granola I wish they would of gave me a much bigger bag to review. I love how the granola taste although it doesn't have much of a peanut butter taste to it, but it's really good otherwise. I wanted to spare some, so I took a little bit of the granola & put it in some yogurt.. Delicious!! I even added some cinnamon for a little bit more flavor.
