Taste Test of the Week: Kaia Foods Premium Raw Granola

8/25/2008 10:45:47 AM

Tags: food review, organic food, taste tests

We’re trying it before you buy it.

Company: Kaia Foods
Flavors tested: Dates & Spices, Raisin Cinnamon and Cocoa Bliss
Price: $6.99 for a 12 oz. bag
Editor’s score: 3.5/5

Why we liked it: Surprisingly yummy! (When choosing the right ones)

I don’t know about you, but when a package says things like “Buckwheat Crunchies” it doesn’t sound too appetizing. Fortunately for the raisin cinnamon and cocoa bliss flavors, these gluten-free granolas actually make tasty snacks. Raisin cinnamon wins in the flavor category. Its strong cinnamon flavor mixed with the sweetness of the raisins makes it worth another handful.

The Granola’s downfalls: Some flavors are better than others…

Although many of us in the office love healthy foods (these little breakfast foods are high in fiber, and are vegan AND raw), the Dates & Spices flavor failed to entice us for more. Its dry texture and lack of sweetness made it fall flat with taste testers.

I would have enjoyed these treats more if they had more flavor. They tasted rather dry, imo.

High in fiber, huh? Have you ever tried FiberOne? Man, don't do that unless you're planning to be alone for the next several hours!
