Sweet Home Farm French Vanilla Flavored Granola with Almonds, 20.5 OZ (Pack of 8)
Great as a snack. 3 g of fiber per serving. Made with whole grains 26 g per serving. Alluring Almonds: Botanically speaking, the almond is actually a fruit, belonging to the same family as other stone fruits including nectarines, peaches, plums and cherries. One of the earliest cultivated foods, almonds were spread by explorers traveling the Silk Road of Asia. Romans showered newlyweds with almonds as a fertility charm. The Swiss use them to this day as a New Year's good luck charm. Delicious Vanilla: Vanilla, considered by many to be the perfect flavor, is the only edible fruit of the orchid family. We've combined this luscious flavor with crunchy oat clusters and hearty almonds to create a purely magical - and nutritious - granola. This granola contains no preservatives, artificial flavors or colors, and the ingredients are grown and made without GMOs. So treat yourself to the exquisite vanilla and rich almonds in this perfectly delicious and nutritious melange. Bon appetit! Packaged and sold by weight. The Story of Granola: Fact is stranger than fiction! In the mid-1800's, Dr. Sylvester Graham, of Graham Cracker fame, promoted his wholegrain wheat flour bread for its high nutritional value. Shortly after, Dr. James Jackson created the world's first breakfast cereal by baking the graham flour into dense wholegrain nuggets - dubbed Granula - that had to be soaked overnight to be edible. Enter Dr. John Harvey Kellogg who, in 1876, created his own version of Granula, which he called Granola. The Charles W. Post got into the act with a similar formula known as Grape Nuts. The popularity of granola soon waned, to be revived nearly 100 years later along with a renewed interest in wholegrain food. That's when we dished out fifty bucks for baking equipment and a secret granola recipe. Today, Sweet Home Farm offers simple wholesome goodness in delicious traditional granola in a variety of flavors. Try them all!
