Nature Valley Granola Nut Clusters Review and Giveaway - ENDED


This giveaway has ended. Thanks so much to all who participated!



MyBlogSpark recently gave me the opportunity to try the new Nature Valley Granola Nut Clusters. They sent me a sample of each of the four flavors: Roasted Cashew, Nut Lovers, Roasted Almond and Honey Roasted Peanut. I was really excited to try these because I love granola bars and all of the other Nature Valley products. They are my preferred brand for both chewy and crunchy granola bars. Eric and Ben, however, are not generally the biggest fans of granola.

I first opened the Honey Roasted Peanut flavor. Immediately Ben came over and said "What's that? Can I have some, Mommy?" Of course, I shared. After I tasted them, I reconsidered the whole sharing thing and decided that this bag was all for me. Yum! Who would want to share these things? There's a really yummy combination of sweet and salty. The peanuts were a little salty and the whole thing is lightly sweetened with honey. This is not an over the top "candy" sweet, it's a light, natural sweet that perfectly compliments the salty.

Since I decided that I was no longer willing to share (bad, Mommy!), Eric opened the Roasted Cashew and shared with Ben. They devoured the whole bag together. Hmmm....ok, so this is definitely healthier than eating a bag of potato chips or cheese puffs, but a whole bag in one sitting?! They must be pretty good!

I worked on the Peanut ones over the next couple of days. Instead of eating buttered popcorn or chips I opted for the Granola Nut Clusters. They're bite sized and make the perfect snack to munch on while watching tv (or even blogging).

So how were the other 2 flavors? I'd love to tell you but I don't really know. Eric decided to steal them and bring them to work with him to snack on during break. This is a guy who thinks spray cheese and Ritz crackers are a whole meal in and of themselves. I never even got a chance to try them because they were gone before I knew it! I think that says it all.

We will definitely be buying these often. I was also very happy to learn that BJ's sells these in a larger size bag so definitely check out your local club store if you have a membership.
