Review: Glutenfreeda Granola

Glutenfreeda sent me free boxes of their new gluten-free granola to review. The granola is made with certified gluten-free oats, flax seeds, sunflower seeds, honey, and no artificial ingredients. There are three varieties - Apple Almond, Cranberry Cashew, and Raisin Almond.

Each box contains four individual packs, which makes it easy to eat on the go if you have a spoon and cup or bowl. However, individual isn’t exactly the right word for the packs as each pack contains 2.5 servings, so calculate the calories and fat before eating an entire pack.

The granola is good! The clusters are small and similar in size to the Enjoy Life granola, but it would be difficult to eat with your hands. It tastes like traditional granola - not sweet, except for the dried fruit. It is a little crunchy, but I would prefer a bit more crunch and more dried fruit. (The granola made by Enjoy Life is too sweet and crunchy for me.) My favorite Glutenfreeda granola flavor is the Cranberry Cashew, with large pieces of cashews, and I would buy it!

One box is $6.95 at the Gluten Free Mall, but is currently on sale for $5.56. Currently, eight boxes can be purchased on Amazon for $30.77, instead of the list price of $40.00, which is a great deal. The granola has a shelf life of approximately one year.

this granola gives me diarrhea, yet that doesn't happen when I eat any of the ingredients individually, not sure what's going on here
