A few weeks ago, a case of Snacklemouth granola snacks arrived on my doorstep. When I opened the carton, I was greeted with 5 boxes of the most colorful and interestingly-designed packaging I’ve seen in a while. The boxes resemble something you might find on a totem pole.
If you look at each box, you’ll find clues to what flavors you’ll be tasting; I can only imagine how much fun the designer who created these crazy graphics must have had. I received 5 different flavors of granola nut clusters, all jam-packed with simple, natural, organic ingredients:
Almond Berry: Contains a combination of almonds, blueberries and toasted oats with blue agave and brown rice syrup for sweetening. This one is my favorite; I’m going to be adding it to my bread and muffin recipes, as well as my morning yogurt and cereal.
Salty Chocolate: A combination of almonds, blue agave, chocolate, oats, oat bran, cashews, brown rice syrup, canola oil and sea salt. This is a great snack when you can’t decide between salty or sweet.
Bacon Maple: Pieces of real bacon combined in the nut clusters; a strange and interesting combination. The jury is still out regarding this flavor; you can definitely smell the maple and the bacon, but don’t get a strong taste of either one.
Almond Pecan Maple: Toasty oats, pecans and almonds; a delicious combination to add to your morning yogurt!
Peanut Cranberry: A combination of peanuts, cranberries and toasted oats. This one is also a favorite; great for snacking, but I can’t wait to try it out in recipes. I’m considering a cookie recipe using this one…..
Where can you find some of your own Snacklemouth?
If you want to try Snacklemouth yourself, its available online; but if you’re in Southern California (like me), you can find it at some Whole Foods markets. Let me know what you think of it when you try it; and if you have some recipes that you’re using it in, I’d love to see them!
