Review:
Cascadian Farm was kind enough to send me the prize pack depicted above.  I was so excited to find out that MyBlogSpark and Cascadian Farm were teaming up to sponsor this giveaway on my blog!!!  I LOVE Cascadian Farm!!! Love their granola bars, love their cereals, love their fruits & veggies.  Love it all.  I am really LOVING the granola.  I am enjoying a bowl of the Oats & honey right now and am quite tempted to go back for another bowl of it. 

The Oats & Honey Granola stays crunchy in milk for quite a while and even though mine has currently been sitting in the milk about 10 minutes it still has a similar crunch factor to roasted peanuts.  It has such a great flavor to it and a wonderful texture/level of crunch.  I love granola anyway so this one is a winner in my book!

The Dark Chocolate Almond Granola is also quite tasty and has the same crunch factor as the Oats & Honey.  It has a terrific flavor.  I had a bowl of that last night at midnight.  (Why yes, I am gaining weight ;) Thanks for noticing!)  One bowl of this was VERY filling and it squashed my desire to go back and find something else to snack on  That was great!

The Cinnamon Crunch Cereal pieces are little crunchy squares with cinnamon and sugar on them.  These stayed crunchy in my milk for a long time.  My kids loved them.  This was their side item for lunch today to go with their chicken sandwich.  I felt great about that since they are organic and not full of sugar and chemicals. 

The Fruitful O's Cereal were my very FAVORITE! I may hide these from everyone else! As you might imagine these are little cereal bits shaped like the letter "O" with fruit flavors.  Taste wise these actually reminded me of a cereal from my childhood that isn't made anymore!  If you are my age or slightly older then you might remember the old cereal from the early 80's -  "Donkey Kong Jr"? These tasted quite similar to me.  Your experience might differ.  These will definitely go on my list of "Products I love and will buy whenever I have a coupon!"

Chewy Chocolate Chip Granola Bars...I'll let my daughter review that for you.  Rather her behavior....My daughter is a picky eater who actually sat down last night and ate an entire chewy chocolate chip granola bar.  Normally new food receives the obligatory bite then she throws the rest of the food from her high chair as far as she can.   No matter what I do to curb it, that is her reaction to new items and she's 2 so I kind of expect it.  Then she will say "I don't yike it. It Gwoss mommy!"   She took one bite of her granola bar last night and said "Yummy mommy.  I yike it, I yike it! Happy! Happy!" When she finished it she wanted another one.  I was floored.  They are very tasty and chewy and it is a food I enjoyed eating very much.

Dark Chocolate Almond Granola Bars - I think this was my least favorite item that was sent to me.  It's not that I didn't like them.  These are actually quite good.  They are high in fiber which is a healthy way to go but high fiber food always seems to have a different texture to me and I am a very picky eater when it comes to texture.  Like I said, I still liked these but I probably won't buy this particular flavor in the store.  The rest of these items I will totally be on the lookout for!
