Giddy Up & Go Granola Review & Giveaway

I as recently sent a package of Giddy Up & Go Granola (HERE) from Thoughtful Food Inc (HERE).

Thoughtful Food, Inc., an organic and gluten-free heath food distribution and production company. Giddy Up & Go Granola is a delicious granola blend promoting healthy digestion, which offers the optimal daily requirement of Omegas needed for brain development. Starting with the finest ingredients available, Thoughtful Food created two granola blends so pure that they are one of the only brands on the market to be certified both organic and gluten-free. Products are made using only 100% organic agave nectar, and may be a safe choice for some diabetics as well.

Thoughtful Food Granolas are made in a dedicated certified gluten-free facility, guaranteed dairy-free, vegan and certified USDA organic products. GU&GG is currently available in two flavors – “Notoriously Nutty” and “Seriously Seedy.” Loaded with protein, “Notoriously Nutty” is made from only organic fruit and nuts to ensure only the best possible fuel for the body. Keeping in mind those with nut allergies, “Seriously Seedy” was created with organic pumpkin, sesame and sunflower seeds to add the textured crunch while the antioxidant rich dried fruit adds the full flavor. “The positive response to Giddy Up & Go Granola has been inspiring,” says Thoughtful Food Founder Jennifer Bielawski. “We strive to make sure our blends are as healthy and delicious as possible, and the consumer’s feedback is what makes us confident in the products we are creating.”


I love granola mixed with my plain, non-fat Dannon yogurt.  That, paired with a hot cup of my coffee, is my favorite way to start a morning at home.  I often eat it while I'm blogging on Friday mornings.  I was excited to try a new kind of granola, "Notoriously Nutty".  It was crunchy and chewy at the same time.  Also a good mixture of fruits and nuts.  I found it had more fruit than the other brands I frequently purchase.  A great way to off-set the tartness of my plain yogurt.  The 1.5 oz bag was filled with all kinds of wholesome goodness that kept me filled and satisfied.  At $8.97 for a bag, it was a bit more expensive than the brands I normally purchase at my grocery store.  I'd give it an A on the tasting scale and a B- on price.
