Birthday Giveaway #7 - Nature Valley Nut Clusters Review and Giveway {Ends 10/23}




All right, it's true, I'm in love!  Nature Valley has come out with their new Nut Clusters and I am in love.  Like most new foods that I try, I was skeptical about whether I would like them or not.  Granola bars are okay, not my favorite but okay.  I was pretty sure that it would be the same with Nature Valley's Granola Nut Clusters that MyBlogSpark and Nature Valley sent me to try. 

I started with the Honey Roasted version and after the first bite, I was in love.  I finished the bag off in just half an hour.  Yes, I know it says so many servings but I hadn't eaten breakfast yet so I counted it as my breakfast and morning snack.  I do not normally have a morning snack but I did that morning. 

Every time I sat down to work on the blog, I brought along my new friends.  These have a hint of honey and are just so yummy.  I had jaw surgery several years ago now but it still hurts to eat crunchy things like this so if you have jaw issues, this is one you will not want to try.  They are not super crunchy but they just the right amount of crunch to it.

The Nut Clusters come in four yummy flavors - Roasted Cashew (yum!), Nut Lovers (delicious!), Roasted Almond (not my favorite but still good!), and Honey Roasted (my favorite and the love of my taste buds!)  You can find these at your local grocery store for around $2.00 a bag.




MyBlogSpark and Nature Valley sent me a great gift package and they want to do the same for one of my readers!  You will receive all four flavors of Nature Valley Nut Clusters, a sling backpack, binoculars, stainless steel water bottle, and flashlight.

My favorite thing about fall is seeing all the colors of the beautiful leaves on trees.

Kimberly said...

I love the fall leaves (the color not the raking) the temps, not to hot not to cold. Pumpkins and mums. Good bonfire weather. The sound of football in the background. What's not to love about fall? :-)
