Thanks to the generous folks at Mix My Granola, the So Good World Headquarters recently received an offer to try a food item I love, namely granola.Â I eat this stuff all the time, and consider myself quite a connoisseur â€“ so I jumped at the chance.Â I was not let down.
As the company name implies, you are able to design a custom combination of ingredients to satisfy whatever tastes you want to put together.
My choices: Organic Granola base, Organic Raisins, Cranberries, Pecans, Walnuts, Organic Flax Seeds and Organic Coconut Shreds.
Now I went relatively healthy, but they have a ton of options â€“ everything from candy corn and gummy bears to dried melon and macadamia nuts.Â They also have pre-made combos, but those arenâ€™t nearly as fun.Â The order came loose in a tube, with the nutrition info for the specific contents detailed on the label.Â (I would have preferred a bag inside the cylinder to keep the contents a little less shaken, but that was not the biggest deal.)
Here is what my mix looked like:
Pure and simple.Â And it was good too â€“ I had it with skim milk, and it had a subtle amount of sweetness that was just right for me. Not nearly enough pecans and walnuts for my liking, but overall quite tasty.
Now the price tag on my custom job was not cheap â€“ around $14 with shipping.Â But where else can you get this kind of personalized granola?Â Not at Whole Foods, I can tell you that.
But donâ€™t take it from me, you can make your own combination with a free $20 gift card for whatever mix strikes your fancy.
All you have to do is comment on this post, and, if possible, link back to this post via tweet or on your blog and/or put So Good in your blogroll.Â We will choose the most enthusiastic reader over the next few days.
