Product Review: Enjoy Life Granola “New & Improved” – Cranapple Crunch, Very Berry Crunch, Cinnamon Crunch
Posted on | November 3, 2009 | 9 Comments
Enjoy Life gluten free granola . . . round two!
Enjoy Life reformulated their gluten and allergy free granola and asked me to give it a whirl, even though I didn’t like their old formula. They sent me three flavors to sample: Cranapple Crunch, Very Berry Crunch and Cinnamon Crunch.
The biggest difference I noticed was the large, awkward clumps of granola weren’t there anymore. Instead, their new granola seems much more separated with only a few bite size clusters and bits of freeze dried fruit. The brown rice flakes appeared cut and textured to look just like bits of oats- very clever!
The flavor of the granola is quite bold, especially the cranapple and very berry flavors. I liked that the granola wasn’t very sweet, so it made a great option for breakfast or sprinkling on yogurt for an extra crunch. Speaking of crunch, when I tried this gluten free granola for breakfast I was happy to discover that it stayed very crunchy in milk.
I didn’t care for this granola as a snack though. It was so separated that any attempt at eating a handful of this granola resulted in a shower of flakes and fruit bits all over the counter and my shirt. Not fun.
Way to go enjoy Life! This new granola is a huge step up from the prior formula.
