Mix My Granola

I got an email from someone at Mix My Granola asking me if I had tried their product yet.  Truth is, I had read about this company when they first launched and I ordered some immediately.  Wasn't thrilled with it but I said I would try again.

We generally keep on hand the granola from 'Wichcraft which is insanely delicious, toasty and rich.  It is probably not that healthy and loaded with calories as most granola is.  It is also not cheap.

I got a box in the mail yesterday marked "gotham gal's yummy granola mix".  The mixture is oats, dried blueberries, dried cranberries, dried raspberries, roasted almonds, hazelnuts and oatbran flakes…and lots of love.  The love part is clever.

Inside granola
I opened it to taste the minute I got it.  I had one handful, then another, and then another.  Josh joined me, so did Emily.  We got half way through to the bottom and decided maybe we should save some for breakfast.

We all agreed, delicious.  Particularly loved the oatbran flakes.  Took on a totally different texture.

Go online, check them out, try a few different combos, everyone in the family could have their own separate mix.  Clever…and delicious.

Thanks for the product….the second time is obviously a charm.

    Back in July, Melissa Clark wrote about an organic granola she tasted at a neighborhood gourmet shop. It was made by Early Bird Foods and she was hooked. I have ordered it online and while it is expensive, it is off the charts delicious! They make it with olive oil and salt! The sweet/salt ratio is perfect. She came up with a recipe to recreate it and we have made it many times – it’s excellent, and healthy! Here is a link to the recipe:http://www.nytimes.com/2009

    I saw a company at a pitch event doing something very similar: http://www.meandgoji.com/I guess it’s a hot new trend…To be honest, I’d rather have someone else choose the best granola ingredients for me. I think I’m likely to choose items that I like which wouldn’t mix together well. This happens to me all the time at salad bars.
