A Nutty Review! All New Nature Valley Granola Nut Clusters - A Five Star Snack!

I am a lover of all kinds of nuts - yeah, nutty fun people for sure - but I'm talking about honey roasted peanuts, pecans, cashews, almonds, and peanuts here! So I was more than super excited when the good folks over at MyBlogSpark recently asked me if I'd like to review a new snack product by Nature Valley - their new Granola Nut Clusters snack line. Stayed tuned and I'll even tell you where to get a great coupon to try your first bag!

Nature Valley introduced their delicious granola bars back in 1975, but I'm here to tell ya, this takes your old granola bar to a whole new level.

Yummy, salty nuts are rolled in Nature Valley Granola, and made into little bite-sized, super-crunchy clusters that are just slightly sweetened with a touch of honey. The result is that perfectly contrasting sweet & salty taste that we all love so much, in an easy pop-in-your-mouth super-crunchy snack.

There are four varieties available, each one 100% natural, so it's a wholesome treat that you can confidently give to your children, your spouse, or just enjoy yourself at any time. Each variety was so delicious that my biggest problem was deciding which I liked the best! You are gonna love the texture and crunch of these, and the packages are resealable so you can tote them with you when you're on the run, at the park, or even on the commute back and forth to work.

If you love that contrast of sweet and salty that comes with honey roasted peanuts then you are gonna love the 'Honey Roasted Peanut Nut Clusters.' These are definitely going to be a favorite!

Or, if you're like me at a buffet and you like a little taste of everything, then you're gonna love the 'Nut Lovers' blend. It's really the best of all nut-worlds because it's a mix of cashews, pecans and peanuts - all together for a super nutty flavor burst! If you love nuts, you'll really love this blend.
