#win this #giveaway for 2 bags of granola from Natures Hand ends 2/22/12

CLOSED!!!


NATURE’S HAND GRANOLA INTRODUCES
ENHANCED PRODUCT & NEW PACKAGING
Granola Veteran Offers New Great-Tasting, All Natural
Good-for-You Granola Your Whole Family Will Love
CHICAGO, IL  - For the first time in the Company’s 40-year history, Nature’s American Co. is bringing something new to the table.  While many granolas are loaded with preservatives, sugar, sodium or trans fats, Nature’s Hand granola was created for health-conscious consumers who still love the taste of authentic granola, and uses only the world’s finest ingredients.
The new product, which features an improved texture and more clustered blend, is made with roasted oats and wheat, tasty nuts and seeds and delicately sweetened with caramelized brown sugar and honey.  Nature’s Hand uses only premium all-natural ingredients like soy oil, which is full of fiber, protein and antioxidants.  The brand is low in sugar and contains no artificial colors or flavors, preservatives, cholesterol, trans fats or sodium.
“The granola category grew +5.6 percent in 2010 as busy consumers search for convenient, healthy food choices,” says Kevin Hannan, president of Nature’s American Co.  “Nature’s Hand offers women and their families a healthy, convenient and affordable breakfast and snack option to suit their lifestyles.”
The new premium packaging is bright and colorful and features a new resealable top and literally gives consumers a preview window to the 100% natural goodness inside.  The bold colors used to identify each of the six unique granola blends -- French Vanilla Almond, Cranberry Delight, Wild Blueberry, Raisin Hazelnut, Cinnamon Apple, Maple Pecan – means the brand will assume a place of prominence on the shelf for an affordable suggested retail price of $4.99.
Nature’s Hand provides a delicious and nutritious breakfast, especially served with yogurt; is convenient for on-the-go snacking; and serves as an ideal baking ingredient in your favorite recipes, including cookies, pie crusts and more.


Outward Bound
Nature’s Hand is proud to be the official granola of Outward Bound U.S.A., www.outwardbound.org.  In addition, Nature’s Hand gladly donates more than 10,000 lbs of granola annually to local shelters.

The Three Flavors we tried:














Raisin Hazelnut, Apple Cinnamon, & Wild Blueberry
They were all so good! We liked the Raisin Hazelnut best, but all of them were good. they tasted so fresh and crunchy. Even the baby (who does not yet have all her teeth) was shoveling them in at an alarming rate! The granola is extremely good for you! We tried it on fresh yogurt and it's great for snacking to tide you over! This product contains so artificial colors, sodium, trans fat, or preservatives. Giana likes to pack little Tupperware containers of it with her school lunch! The only thing is, it gets everywhere, because my kids are so messy! You can use it in cookies, baking recipes, add it to your Corn Flakes or Wheaties, or anything you can think of. The possibilities are endless. I like to mix plain nuts, (such as pecans, and almonds) in a Ziplock baggie. It makes a perfect take along to the beach or for outdoorsy type activities. I personally, was extremely interested in the coconut flavored granola, but it is only available in bulk sizes. Their prices are extremely reasonable, considering the large bags sold. The single pouch is $4.99 a case of 6 pouches cost is $29.94 and you can also order a case of mixed pouches.
