Nuts About Granola (College Staple) Product Review

Nuts About Granola (College Staple) Product Review Recipe

For this review I asked Emily, the newest addition to the Pham Fatale family, to test out the product. Emily is a college student who is currently finishing up her bachelor's degree, so I thought she was the perfect person to review a product called "College Staple"! Have a great Labor Day weekend.

As a frenzied college student juggling a heavy course load, two jobs, and a social life, food is almost always an afterthought for me. That doesn’t mean I don’t care about what I eat; on the contrary, I am constantly looking for simple yet tasty treats. My recent addiction has been frozen yogurt. It’s quick, easy, healthy, and now thanks to all of the shops popping up around campus, it’s social, too! However, like all addictions, it’s burned quite the hole in my wallet. Solution: buy your favorite tart yogurt at your grocery store, and instead of paying exorbitant prices by the ounce for toppings, get a bag of granola.

I’ve tried a lot of different granola brands in the past, and it’s been a challenge to find one that I really like. Many have the taste of unprepared oatmeal. So when Sarah from Nuts About Granola asked Jackie to review her product, I was only too happy to volunteer. I tried the College Staple variety, which is granola flavored with cinnamon, peanuts and dried cranberries.

The first thing that struck me about Nuts About Granola was that it reminded me of my favorite oatmeal cookie, broken down into pieces and splashed with cinnamon-y goodness. The granola has a taste of peanut butter and a burst of dried fruit mixed in. You’ll be confused: am I eating granola, a cookie, or a PB&J sandwich?

You could add it to milk in the morning for breakfast, grab a handful to snack on in class or before the gym, or share it with friends on a day out. That’s what’s so great about it – College Staple is a snack on its own and it’s great with almost anything else. But if you’re like me, you can’t go wrong with Nuts About Granola and fro-yo as a late-night snack.
