I've been a fan of Bear Naked Granola for a long time. It's one of those okay-to-have treats that I don't feel guilty about having, with it's all natural, simple ingredients. Bear Naked has a new flavor of granola: Vanilla Almond Crunch.
With only three grams of sugar, and nothing artificial, I had to try it. The Vanilla Almond Crunch has 120 calories, 2.5 grams of fat, and 3 grams of protein.
I've been eating it straight out of the bag for a couple days, and while that's good enough for me, it's a bit messy. In fact, the letter "t" is sticking on my keyboard because I dropped a bit of granola in the keys just now.
The taste of this variety is slightly sweet, with a hint of vanilla flavor and whole almonds. I really do like it. I added it to a cup of sugar-free vanilla pudding for a snack tonight and it was absolutely perfect. You know I'm super-picky, so for me to really like something - it's got to be good.
