Fabulously Fruity
‘Attractive looking, golden baked granola with a good balance of fruit and seeds. Very good flavours, not too sweet, and an enjoyable crunchy texture.’

Nourishingly Nutty
‘A very good mixture, both in terms of flavours and appearance. Very good flavour overall, the sweetness is very well judged, a small amount of well judged cinnamon adds the depth. The flavours of all the nuts and seeds come through excellently.

If you like a finely textured granola this is fine indeed.’
