A Decadent Chocolately Granola
Love Crunch doesn’t quite have the ‘crunch’ I would expect from a quality granola, and the chocolate flavor is muted somehow. The small chunks of dark chocolate seem to be of good quality however. It is fairly healthy when limited to the 1/4 cup size, though it’s hard to stop munching after those significant 140 calories.
This is a satisfying cereal that I would consider more of a dessert than a breakfast food. See if you can purchase it locally to minimize the amount of crushing I experienced. 3.5 stars.

YUMMY … right out of the bag!!
My only problem is that the granola tastes so good that it is very easy to eat the more than the 1/4 cup (140 calories) serving size. The DARK CHOCOLATE & RED BERRIES granola MIX has all of my favorite ingredients … granola, cocoa, flax, and coconut. I especially like that there is NOT any high fructose corn syrup. I think I have found my new favorite granola mix. I’m looking forward to trying the other flavors also. 🙂
Good quality, tasty, but too sweet for breakfast
My primary criticism is that it is much too sweet to eat for breakfast: it even turns the milk sweet and gives it a slight chocolate flavor. This granola is much better eaten dry as a dessert. It would also be good as a topping for apple crisp.
The suggested serving size of 1/4 cup has 140 calories and I would think a normal serving would be much larger than that, possibly a full cup or 560 calories. About half the bag arrived in tiny pieces from shipping so even the suggested quarter cup would probably contain more calories and it is not low-fat, either. 3/4 cup has 27% of the suggested daily value for fat.
Note: “evaporated cane juice” is better known as “sugar”.
