Nature Valley Granola Nut Clusters Review + Giveaway

by Lisa on October 14th, 2009

Thanks to MyBlogSpark, I had the opportunity to try out all four flavors of the new Nature Valley Granola Nut Clusters.  The four flavors are Roasted Cashew, Nut Lovers, Roasted Almond, and Honey Roasted Peanut.

From the marketing materials, here is a description of Nature Valley’s Granola Nut Clusters:

Nature Valley Granola Nut Clusters are a bite size blend of 100% natural ingredients that include select roasted nuts, whole grain oats and a touch of honey – a wholesome and delicious pick-me-up any time of the day. If you love nuts, you´ll enjoy this flavorful little snack featuring the perfect combination of sweet & salty flavors paired with a crunchy texture that you can see and taste.

Over the past few weeks I have seen these Granola Nut Clusters everywhere.  There are coupons galore and samples everywhere.  Yet I didn’t actually try them until I received my four packs in the mail. And to be perfectly honest with you – I am on the fence about these treats.

The crunchy texture reminds me of the original Nature Valley Crunchy Granola Bars, which I love.  If these Granola Nut Clusters were made in the flavors of those original granola bars I would be raving right now.  I loved the bite-size pieces, I loved the texture.  But what I didn’t LOVE was the taste.  I liked the taste, but I felt like the nuts dominated the flavor…which was probably the point, right?  :)

The only type of nut I really like are cashews, so I liked the Roasted Cashew flavor the best.  The other flavors were good, just not something I would buy regularly.  However, if you love nuts and products made with nuts, I’m pretty certain you will love these Granola Nut Clusters.

And if you are one of those nut-lovin’ people you are in luck because MyBlogSpark has given me an additional prize pack to give away to one of you lucky lucky readers!!!  Woot!

Not only will the winner of this giveaway receive a full-size bag of each of the 4 new flavors of Nature Valley’s Granola Nut Clusters, but the winner will also receive a sling backpack, stainless steel water bottle, flashlight, and binoculars.  (It’s a huge box of goodies, and I LOVE the water bottle.)
