Enjoy Life cranapple crunch granola – vegan, parve CRC

I am convinced that there is only one factory making healthy granolas and breakfast cereals in all of North America. I am exaggerating, of course, but after trying many brands from both health food stores and supermarkets, I have come to a few conclusions.

In general, healthy cereals are

  • very poor value, a lot of box with less inside that you think
  • mostly mixtures of flakes, granola clusters and grains that appear in other cereal boxes and bulk bins
  • do not taste so good
  • are mostly not wheat and wheat gluten free.

I decided to give up wheat and dairy this past week and I think I see an improvement in my health, so I am looking for wheat free foods. It’s tough after a lifetime of stuffing my face with bread, cake and pasta to go cold turkey, but if it helps, it’s worth it. I will be focusing on wheat free and gluten free for a while in my reviews.

This product really does seem to be home made! Uneven chunks of reasonably good tasting chewy, but not crunchy cereal. I can almost believe the story on the box about someone’s mother inspiring the line of wheat free cereals and baked goods. Expensive, a bit to chewy for my taste, I prefer dry and crunchy, but good. I rate this 3.5 out of 5. (My first half point)
