Dilemma Dilemma Dilemma…
We reviewed the blueberry granola…well safe to say no one on our team really loved this product…Chewy yes … A bit too chewy.  For us, the taste seemed laden with salt, agave, lots of millet, buckwheat, flaxseed, sunflower, sesame, pecans, almonds, pepitas, apples, and somewhere in there, some blueberries.  There is of course a story on the rear insert that talks about how the idea of Two Moms in the Raw came about and it is a touching one.  Shari, founder and owner of Two Moms in the Raw, was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and found that a raw food diet worked the best to help her heal.  Now we are one of the few to commend the pluck of a determined and creative businesswoman.

We thought that we should search out reviews by raw blogs as this is a RAW product and we found that the reviews are superlative… The Raw community comments range from being appreciative to delighted that Starbucks is now a retailer of the product…  Yes, you can buy raw products in a national chain which is the good news… So what can we say but… There are two distinctly different interpretations of taste!!!  

If you are a raw food eater, then you will probably love this product.  If you aren’t, then this is probably won’t enjoy this product as much as Shari would like. 

Taste: We are not raw eaters so our tastes are different, but we thought that the granola was a little on the salty side and actually tasted more like apples than blueberry.  It was also very chewy, a little too chewy for our tastes. 

Labeling: The labeling on the package was very simple.  Raw…check…gluten-free…check… organic…check.  This product has all its healthy guidelines covered. 

Packaging: Non-recyclable resealable plastic packaging.  Some reviewers we found online liked the packaging because they reused them as reuseable sandwich bags, but we don’t think it’s too good of an idea unless you want whatever you put in it to smell like the granola bar. 

Reader’s Reviews: Please share with us your review of this company’s other products + where you purchased the product + how long you have been using this product. Please no review from the family + friends of the company producing the product..

Texture:                2                             
Taste:                    1             
Value:                    2
OVERALL:             1.6
