So, I tried a new cereal this morning that I just have to share with you. I am a big-time lover of Kashi products, and this granola just made me even more excited about the company’s seven-grain goodness:
Now, I have not yet tried the Summer Berry, but if it is anywhere near as good as the Cocoa Beach, than I am excited! And the nutrition facts are even better — especially for granola! What I mean is that I love the oats and crunchiness of most granolas, but the calories and fat are often a bit overwhelming.
But check out the stats for these ones:
A 1/2 cup serving of the Cocoa Beach granola is 230 calories, 9 grams of fat (1.5 g saturated fat), 6 grams of dietary fiber and 11 grams of sugar. A 1/2 cup of the Summer Berry contains 210 calories, 6 grams of fat (1 gram saturated), 6 grams of dietary fiber and 9 grams of sugar.
I know the Cocoa Beach has a little more fat, but the saturated fat remains low, and the chocolate flavor makes this an ideal snack when compared to the typical brownie!
