Nature’s Path Love Crunch Granolas, The Lovin’ Cereal
Nature’s Path Granolas Help Little Love Miracles Happen Everywhere, One Crunch at a Time
Nature’s Path is one of my favorite sustainable green organic non-gmo privately owned food companies – and come to think of it, one of only a few such companies in existence.
So, when Nature’s Path offered samples of their new love crunch granolas, I said yes, and agreed to spread the word about their “Bite4Bite” initiative.
For every bag of Love Crunch sold, Nature’s Path will donate the equivalent in cereal or cash (up to $1 million) to food banks. This “Bite4Bite” initiative bundles the goodwill of all the consumers buying Love Crunch into “love miracles” by helping to ease hunger for those who need it most.
I had the granola samples sent to my daughters and grandchildren, as I knew they’d be enthusiastic tasters. And I was right.
Here are some of their comments:
“Very decadent”; “More like dessert”; “Very Tasty”; “Not overly sweet”; “Spiced just perfectly”; “Satisfying”; “The awesome thing is that the chunks of fruit and nuts are BIG!”; “Carrot Cake was really good”; “I’d eat that for breakfast, snack or anytime!”; “Tasted sweet, loved the sweetness”; “I’d eat it if Mom bought it”.
Aloha Blend and Dark Chocolate were their favorite Love Crunch granolas.
Like good health conscious consumers, my daughters read the nutrition data. For example, in a 1/4 cup serving, the Apple Crumble Love Crunch had 3g protein, 6g sugars, 22g carbs, 4g fat and 140 calories. My daughter Char had a serving of each kind of Love Crunch, so that was lunch for her. With some plain soy yogurt or almond milk, one serving of Love Crunch would be a great breakfast or snack.
About Love Crunch:
To celebrate Valentine’s Day 2011, Nature’s Path introduced the original Love Crunch – called Dark Chocolate & Red Berries – which was the perfect marriage of flax granola, strawberries, raspberries, coconut and dark chocolate chunks.
Inspired by a true-life love story and philanthropy, it was created by Arjan Stephens, son of Nature’s Path’s founder Arran Stephens, to celebrate his marriage. At their wedding, in lieu of gifts, the newlyweds asked guests to take action and give back to their communities.
Nature’s Path captured this giving spirit by creating Love Crunch – a limited edition granola with a portion of proceeds benefiting those in need.
The hopeless romantics at Nature’s Path continue to spread even more love, with three deliciously indulgent new Love Crunch Granolas, which will be available on shelf in early 2012.
• Apple Crumble – a deliciously sweet blend of green apples, pecans and cinnamon, with omega-3 and fiber-rich chia seeds that has 15 grams of Whole Grains per serving, no cholesterol, low sodium, no trans fat and is a good source of ALA Omega-3.
• Carrot Cake – a melt-in-your-mouth combination of carrots, raisins, yogurt, pecans and pineapple with 15 grams of Whole Grains per serving, no cholesterol, low sodium and no trans fat.
• Aloha Blend – a tropical treat filled with pineapple, coconut and white chocolate chunks with 14 grams of Whole Grains per serving, no cholesterol, low sodium and no trans fat.
Spreading the Love…
The new Love Crunch Granolas are not only delicious, but socially and environmentally responsible. The cereals will come not in the traditional box, but in a bag, to forgo excess cardboard.
Like all Nature’s Path products, Love Crunch Granolas are USDA certified organic, which means they do not contain artificial preservatives, additives or synthetic pesticides. Love Crunch Granolas also bear the new Non-GMO Project Verified Seal, which helps shoppers recognize products that meet rigorous genetically modified organism (GMO) avoidance practices.
