Nuts About Granola – Plain Jane
Overall Score: 3/5
Nuts About Granola is a small, mother/daughter company, that makes simple, fresh, and delicious granola. They produce three flavors that are available year-round, which are all peanut butter based. There’s the Plain Jane – which is just plain peanut butter flavor, Lovers Combo – which is a combination of chocolate and peanut butter, and College Staple – which is a combination of peanut butter and dried cranberries to make it taste like a PB&J! They also make several other amazing sounding varieties, such as Carrot Cake and S’mores, but are only available at certain times of the year.
The flavor I was sent to review, Plain Jane, had a nice, nutty peanut butter flavor. It’s made from all fresh, healthy, and recognizable and pronouncable ingredients (oats, peanuts, brown sugar, honey, peanut butter, canola oil, wheat bran, cinnamon, salt), which combine perfectly giving it a slightly sweet, nutty, salty taste. I particularly enjoyed the smooth peanut butter flavor and the subtle touch of cinnamon that it contains as well. The texture of this granola however, is something to note. It’s very different from other granolas I’ve had. It’s very chewy, not crunchy; and just my personal taste, I tend to prefer crunchy, especially when mixing it with yogurt or milk. I did however, like it’s chewy texture when I was eating it by itself, but when I mixed it in with my yogurt, I really missed the crunch I’m used to. So, to sum it up, the flavor of this granola certainly did not disappoint, and it’s chewy texture makes it a great hand-to-mouth snacking granola!
