Spotlight on “Mix My Granola” (Giveaway)
A LITTLE ABOUT MIX MY GRANOLA:
Andreas, Matt and Raoul founded MixMyGranola in 2008. The idea of MixMyGranola was born when the three of us were sitting together at breakfast one morning discussing what the perfect granola would be like. Each one of us had different ideas and none of the ready-made granolas that we could find in supermarkets and grocery stores really fulfilled all of our granola dreams.
So we started looking for the best granolas and the best ingredients and started creating our own granola mixes. While trying new combinations and new ingredients, we thought: hey- other people might want to do the same.
So we created MixMyGranola.com: The website where YOU can custom-make your own granola. The way YOU like it!
Each container holds 16 ounces of delicious granola and has an individual label on the back stating the exact nutrition facts of your custom-made granola mix and its ingredients. Each label also includes an individual Mix-ID that allows you (or anyone else) to re-order your favorite mix by entering the Mix-ID at MixMyGranola.com. The inside of the container is aluminum coated to keep your granola fresh and dry. It is sealed with a white plastic plug which is locked by “Freshness Guaranteed” stickers to maintain the highest quality that you can expect from MixMyGranola.
We treat the environment with respect and all of our packaging is 100% recyclable. A soy-based ink is used to print our labels, which means less chemicals are leaking into the environment.**
THE IE MOMMY SAYS:
My husband loves granola! I knew that I wanted to review this unique experience and create my own MixMyGranola version to present to my wonderful husband. I was thrilled to be offered the chance when Raoul offered me a gift certificate to try MixMyGranola.
Creating your very own masterpiece is as simple as one, two, three! With each step of the process clearly labeled…you have the ability to pick and choose the items you want to have in our own mix.
Do you like really healthy granola? You can mix it! Do you like granola with a lot of fruit or chocolate? You can mix it? Want to add organic ingredients or enhancing powders such as Organic Acai or even, Caffeine Powder? You can mix it!
The beauty of MixMyGranola is that you are in in charge…this is your production and you can have it anyway you want to mix it.
As I was creating my own MixMyGranola creation…I quickly realized that I had very different tastes then my husband. I waited till he came home and let him create his own mix. Check out my husband’s MixMyGranola creation:
- French Vanilla Granola
- Dried Strawberries
- Dried Bing Cherries
- Dried Apricots
- Organic Dried Apples
- Dried Pineapple
- Roasted Almonds
- Roasted Cashews
- Sunflower Seeds
- Chocolate Mini Morsels
- Peanut M&Ms
- Oat bran Flakes
- Fruity Loops
- Peanut butter Bites
Needless to say we went over the gift certificate amount a wee bit but it was worth it hear my husband say “oh, yeah add that!”. Once you mix your granola you can create your very own name for it. It arrived in a very cool 16 oz container complete with a label that carries the name of your mix. All the information that I need to reorder is on the label.
This is great idea for Father’s day. Use the electronic gift certificate and you have a quick, fun, healthy gift for dad.
I know my husband loved it….he took the container with him to work and I never saw it again…but I did get quite a few kisses and thanks for his gift. MixMyGranola…get one for someone you love…and get a few kisses in return.
