Nature Valley Granola Nut Clusters... Oh, My, My...

Okay, so let me just tell you that I will not even hesitate to say that I love these little things (well, except for the cashew variety. Hubby ate those- I don't like cashews). I make my own granola- vanilla/cinnamon, peanut butter, and chocolate/almond- and I start out just about every morning with a half-cup of the stuff. I love it! The truth of the matter, though, is that I sometimes run out before I manage to make up a new batch. I found these Nature Valley Nut Clusters to be a fantastic substitute when that happened. They were also much easier to eat on the road one day when I found myself rushing out the door!

The lovely people at My BlogSpark sent me that whole nifty set you see pictured above-- four (yep, FOUR) bags of Nature Valley Nut Clusters, binoculars, a stainless steel water bottle, a hiking pack, and a super-cool flashlight that you can manually power- my preschoolers thought that flashlight was about the niftiest thing ever and they took turns carting it to school for show and tell. We haven't taken the whole set on a hiking test-run just yet but I'll tell you this- when we do? We'll have to buy some more Nature Valley Granola Nut Clusters because the ones we received are long gone!

I like that Nature Valley Granola Nut Clusters are made with 100% natural ingredients and include nuts for protein. I'm a sweet/salty snacker myself (I love chocolate covered pretzels too!) and this snack fits the bill perfectly. Nature Valley Granola Nut Clusters come in four yummy flavors: Nut Lovers, Roasted Almond (my personal fave), Roasted Cashew, and Honey Roasted Peanut. The pouch reseals easily but, to be perfectly honest, we usually didn't need to utilize that feature. Ahem.
