Nature’s Path Love Crunch Premium Granola Prize Package {Rafflecopter Giveaway}

Granolas with heart and soul
It began with a wedding and has turned into a movement, one spoonful of delicious granola at a time. Nature’s Path Organic Foods is continuing their Love Crunch story (read more about the story here), with new Love Crunch Premium Granolas offered in four unique flavors, just in time for Valentine’s Day.

There’s granola that’s good for you.  There’s granola that tastes good.  And then there’s Nature’s Path Love Crunch Premium Granolas!!  They are not only good for you and taste wickedly awesome, they give back.  They are a granola with heart and soul!  I was Blessed to receive one of each variety of Love Crunch Premium Granolas for review.  Yes, I tried the Dark Chocolate & Red Berries first.  ;)

Premium Granolas that Give Back

  • Dark Chocolate & Red Berries is the original flavor.  When I think of Valentine’s Day the image of chocolate covered berries always pops into my head.  I made a promise to myself that this year Hubby and I will eat breakfast together on February 14th (not just a cuppa coffee) even though Valentine’s Day is on a Tuesday.  You can’t get more romantic than Dark Chocolate and Red Berries Granola!  This cereal is the perfect combination of flax, strawberries, raspberries, coconut and dark chocolate chunks!  But don’t be fooled!  This granola contains a heart healthy 14 grams of whole grains per serving, no cholesterol, low sodium, no trans fat and is an excellent source of ALA Omega-3.
  • Apple Crumb – I’m not an apple pie lover, but I love apples.  It’s a texture thing. Oh yeah!  Nature’s Path got it right!  That sweet apple cinnamon taste just makes me happy!  They’ve combined tart green apples with just the right amount of sweet cinnamon and tossed in a generous scoop of roasted organic pecans for added flavor and crunch!  For added nutrition Love Crunch added fiber-rich chia seeds!  Each serving packs a nutritional wallop and the taste is absolutely dessert-like
  • Carrot Cake – At last a no-guilt version of one of my favorite desserts!  This combination of carrots, raisins, yogurt, pecans and pineapple is a sweet way to start the day!  It’s cholesterol free, low in sodium and trans fat free.  I love the 15 grams of whole grains in each serving too.  Carrot Cake never had it so good!
  • Aloha Blend – I may not be taking a tropical vacation any time soon, but I’m loving my tropical inspired Aloha Blend Granola!  Crunchy granola is combined with toasted coconut, juicy pineapple and white chocolate chunks in this whole grain breakfast treat!

For each 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 what Nature’s Path calls “love miracles” by helping to ease hunger for those who need it most.

Here’s a decadent cheesecake recipe that’s ideal for Valentine’s Day!  Who doesn’t love cheesecake!?
