Hmm, that's quite something to live up to. I reacted the same way that I did to So Delicious when I first heard of it:
So Delicious ended up living up to its promise, but what about gRAWnola? How good is it really?
While gRAWnola makes a variety of products, including gRAWnola nuggets and Ultimate Green Juice, I tried a few of their gRAWnola bars, sprouted almonds, and their Gluten-Free Bread Crumbs.
Though my attention naturally gravitated towards the gRAWnola bars (I love bars and I love granola!) I tried gluten-free bread crumbs first.
Raw gluten-free bread crumbs? What could that be?
Turns out that it's a mix of four seeds, all ground up! I didn't try them in the recipe suggested on the back (I'm vegetarian, so breaded chicken didn't exactly appeal to me) but I tried them on yogurt with dried fruits and can definitely recommend that!

I love how the flavored nuts are much healthier than other flavored nuts.
That's the ingredients list for the Cajun BBQ Almonds, which were super delicious (even though I'm not the biggest onion fan) and flavorful, even without the added oils and MSG that I've seen in some of the store brand mixed nuts at the Market Basket near my apartment, where I do most of my grocery shopping.

But now for the gRAWnola.
The taste didn't disappoint, either! Like other raw granola bars, the bar is nice and chewy, sweet, and nutty. I really liked the emphasis on pumpkin seeds (sprouted pumpkin seeds are amazing) and they have some fun flavors!

So the verdict on gRAWnola? They pass the test, they deserve their lofty tagline!
Though this last push (before Thanksgiving break, that is) means that I don't really have much time for imaginative stuff outside of class (I haven't worked on any of my WIPs since summer!) I do think that snacking on the gRAWnola bars made cranking that organismic and evolutionary biology research paper out a little easier.
