Nature Valley Granola Thins: Review and Giveaway

Every night around 7:30pm, my oldest daughter starts begging for a snack before bedtime.  If she has eaten a good dinner, I generally comply.  She happily skips to the pantry and almost always comes out with gummy snacks or cookies and I always send her back to the pantry.  We struggle at night to find a snack that both her and I can agree upon.

My daughter is a granola fan and will reach for a granola bar at breakfast.  So, I was thrilled to see than Nature Valley came out with a granola snack that I think she will love.  The new Nature Valley Granola Thins are described as:

…delicate squares of granola with a unique, delightfully crispy texture. Each thin is paired with a delicious melt-in-your-mouth Dark Chocolate flavor.  Granola Thins are 100 percent natural, individually packaged and, at 80 calories per square, a perfect pick-me-up you can feel good about eating.

We received a pack of the dark chocolate as well as the peanut butter varieties to test.  Both my daughter and my husband couldn’t wait to snack!  And the consensus was good!  Both varieties were a hit in my home.  The crispiness of the granola combined with the sweetness of the chocolate or the creaminess of the peanut butter was the perfect match.  The size of the snack was perfect for my daughter, but my husband wanted more.

I am happy that we found a delicious snack that my whole family can agree upon.  I am much happier providing my daughter with a natural snack before bed that isn’t loaded with calories or fat.


Wanna snack?  Nature Valley has generously offered one lucky reader a prize pack including one pack of both the Dark Chocolate and Peanut Butter varieties!
