**This giveaway is now closed. Sorry!!**
As Ellie correctly guessed, my first surprise package contained some Nature’s Path cereal! Nature’s Path is all about healthy eating and each product caters towards different needs including gluten free and low sodium diets, organic products, food for vegetarians, and products containing superfoods. Their compandy believes strongly in “doing good” for the planet, and they demonstrate that in their delicious wholesome products. Their vision, as states online is:
“To be a trusted name for quality organic foods in every home; socially responsible, environmentally sustainable and financially viable.”
– Arran Stephens, Founder
Now I’ve had the pleasure of trying Nature’s Path products in the past, and the three samples that were sent to me, and I love them. They kindly sent me Flax Plus Maple Pecan Crunch cereal, Optimum Strawberry & Yogurt cereal, and the Vanilla Almond Flax Plus granola.
The first thing I tried was the Flax Plus Maple Pecan Crunch Cereal on in my yogurt mess.
“Toasted crunchy flax flakes are combined with a granola made of golden-hued, real maple syrup and roasted pecans.”
I could smell the maple goodness right when I opened this box and it was in every bite!! I’ve tried their other “crunch” cereals such as Red Berry Crunch and Pumpkin Raisin Crunch, neither of which I was a huge fan of. But I couldn’t help but eat these right out of the box as I was bagging up my cereal to take to work 😉 Definitely, definitely a delicious cereal that I would pick up in the store.
Next, I dug into the Optimum Strawberry & Yogurt cereal for a little pre-run fuel.
And on my overnight muesli mix:
“Introducing Optimum Strawberry & Yogurt, a new cereal for people who want to have their “cake” – in the form of delicious, organics strawberries and yogurt covered crispies – and eat it too.”
Taste? Delicious!!! I seriously think this may be one of my new favorite cereals. While there was the strawberry flavor in every single bite, I was kind of disappointed by how little actualy dried strawberries there were in the box.
Those were seriously the only strawberries I saw in the whole bag! Other than that, this cereal was fabulous. And at 170 calories, 3 grams of fat, 5 grams protein & 7 grams fiber for 1 cup, I’m sold!
The last product was the Vanilla Almond Flax Plus granola. I just snacked on this straight from the box 😉 I love vanilla granola (especially the kind from Trader’s!) and this was sweet, vanilla-y, and delicious! One thing I also like about these cereals is the fact that they all contain flaxseed and therefore omega-3s!
Other than these 3 samples, I’ve also tried other products on my own, and my favorites include:
Pumpkin Flax Plus granola (my favorite granola ever)
Pomegran Plus granola (tasty, but I prefer the pumpkin)
Millet rice flakes (delicious flake cereal – one of the best)
- Peanut Butter Panda Puffs (little cereal balls of PB goodness!)
- Maple Cinn waffles (probably my favorite waffles ever – strong maple flavor!)
Now folks, it’s giveaway time!! And this giveaway is extra special because it’s my first one! The kind folks at Nature’s Path offerred to host a giveaway for my readers 🙂
