I was first introduced to Golden Girl Granola last February at the Boston Food and Wine Expo where they had a booth set up. I tried it and I loved it and then I never same them again; not at another event, not at the grocery store, and not at the health food stores. So when I was asked if I wanted to do a review on my site featuring Golden Girl Granola I was thrilled to try it again!
The mission at Golden Girl Granola is to provide a naturally healthful and deliciously crunchy product of the highest quality to their customers.
They promise to provide a granola that:

- Home Sweet Home
- Truly Tropical
- Pumpkin Harvest
- Forest Maple
- Creative Cranberry
- Chocolate Decadence
Although all granolas are wheat and gluten free only one flavor is made with certified gluten free oats: Truly Tropical. If you are like me and do not have a problem with oats then you can eat all 8 flavors. If you can’t handle oats then stick to the Truly Tropical.
So , lets start with the Truly Tropical. Made with certified gluten free oats, honey, cashews, dried mango, sugar, coconut, non-GMO canola oil, vanilla, and sea salt, this granola is sweet and crunchy. I like the combination of buttery cashews, sweet coconut and a little saltiness.
One serving— ¼ cup— has 150 calories, 8 grams of fat, 2 grams of fiber, 7 grams of sugar, and 3 grams of protein.
My favorite was the Pumpkin Harvest made with pumpkin seeds, raisins and pumpkin spices. I’m a sucker for anything pumpkin and this does not disappoint.
And now for the giveaway! One lucky reader is going to win 4 flavors of Golden Girl Granola!
This giveaway will end on January 27, 2015 at 11:59pm. Open to U.S. residents only.
