Healthy Snack: Granola Nut Clusters



I happen to be a huge fan of snacks. My snack of choice is potato chips, which isn't exactly the healthiest thing in the world. Lately I've been hearing about how eating nuts as a snack is not only good for you, but they fill you up faster and so you don't need to eat very many. The thought of eating straight nuts from the can however, just wasn't appealing to me - until My Blog Spark clued me into Granola Nut Clusters by Nature Valley.

Nature Valley granola bars were always my favorite as a kid, and so I expected great things with the granola nut clusters. They come in four yummy varieties: Nut Lovers, Honey Roasted Peanuts, Roasted Almonds and Roasted Cashews. I've got a weak spot for honey roasted peanuts, which I dove right into upon receiving these in the mail. They are indeed, delicious! These are literally a "cluster" of peanuts, granola and a touch of honey. And the thing about not needing to eat too many at a time? So true. Just writing about them made me want some so I ate some just now...I only needed a few to feel fully satisfied. Okay, maybe I could use one more. Granola Nut Clusters make a great on-the-go snack and you can literally eat them anywhere! The best part is they make you feel good and they are good.

WANT TO WIN? One winner will receive a Snack Pack prize pack. It includes all four varieties of the Granola Nut Clusters along with a sling backpack, stainless steel water bottle, flashlight and binoculars. To enter, leave a comment on this post prior to Monday, October 12th at Midnight and tell me what your favorite snack is. Please include your email address with your comment. Winner must provide a US mailing address.
