Nature Valley Granola Nut Clusters {Review&Giveaway}

Today, I had the chance to try Nature Valley Granola Nut Clusters.
When I opened our front door this morning, we had a package from MyBlogSpark waiting on the step. The box contained a Nature Valley Granola Nut Clusters "Snack Pack". We
immediately opened our box, tore into our packages of Nut Clusters and sampled away. Of course, my son was amazed with all of the goodies!

What surprised me was how much my son, {T}, loved them. I have seen Nut Clusters in the store and they appeared delicious, but I did not purchased any beca
use I was afraid the clusters would be too hard and too large for {T} to eat, since he is two years old with a small mouth and sensitive (almost brand new) teeth. Boy was I wrong! His hand has been back into each bag countless times and he says, "Mmmmmm, eat, yum!" Eventually, I had to put all the bags away so he wouldn't over-stuff himself. Points are scored for keeping {T} happy. Happy boy=happy momma. Now, I think all parents worry about what their child consumes, so I read the label and realized I can love them for more than just their great taste!

Here is what I appreciate the most about Nature Valley Granola Nut Clusters:
>Great taste!
>100% Natural!
>No High Fructose Corn Syrup!
>No Food Coloring!
>Snackable, bite-size clusters that were easy to break in half for {T}.
>Not too hard, just crisp and delicious.

I have been on a mission to make our family's eating and snacking habits more healthful. Nature Valley Granola Nut Clusters will most definitely be a snack of choice for our home and a staple in our pantry from now on.

There are four flavors of Nut Clusters available to choose from:

>Nut Lovers~Cashews, pecans, peanuts, granola & a touch of honey
>Roasted Cashew~Roasted cashews, granola & a touch of honey
>Roasted Almond~Roasted almonds, granola & a touch of honey
>Honey Roasted Peanut~Honey roasted peanuts, granola & a touch of honey

My favorite flavor is the Nut Lovers. {T} seemed to love them all equally. I couldn't keep his little hand out of the bags. I think he did enjoy the Honey Roasted Peanut the most, though.

Another note: These Nut Clusters are delicious crumbled into a cup of your favorite yogurt. This combination would be a delicious and healthful 'breakfast on the go'.

it seems like you can't lose, but I'd have to go with honey roasted peanut...they'd fit perfectly in my son's lunchbox. He'd be the envy of the entire third grade...maybe even his school. (not a peanut allergy within miles)

Already tried the cashew clusters and I assure you they are very good. My teenage son ate 3/4 the bag in 5 minutes. I suspect if we win he will enjoy them the most. His appetite is in overdrive. I think our next favorite will be the roasted peanut clusters.
