Hi it’s Natalie from the Costco food and product review fan blog Costcuisine! If you like my reviews for Costco food products the greatest thing you can do is follow me on Instagram or Facebook and also tell your friends about my blog Costcuisine where I review tons of Costco food products each week! In the last week, I reviewed the Costco Kirkland Signature Tuxedo Cake, Costco Terra Delyssa Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Costco PopCorners Snack Bags, Costco innofoods Keto Crackers and Costco Nonni’s Limoncello Biscotti Bites.
If you read my reviews you probably already know I love to buy granola at Costco. Recently I saw this Nature’s Path Love Crunch Granola at my local Costco and I decided I had to try it and review it! This was found with the other granolas in the cereal section and item number is 870940.
I bought this 750 gram bag for $7.99 Canadian which isn’t that expensive.
The bag is resealable which is great because it helps keep the granola fresh. The best before date is about ten months from the date we purchased the granola.
This granola is not all that healthy. The first ingredient is whole grain rolled oats which is good but the second ingredient is cane sugar and the third is soy oil. 1/2 cup serving is 250 calories, nine grams of fat, 37 grams of carbohydrates, 105 mg of sodium, three grams of fibre, 12 grams of sugar and five grams of protein. It’s really easy to eat much more than 1/2 cup.
The granola itself doesn’t have a ton of flavor, it basically just tastes very sweet with a tiny hint of cocoa. The freeze dried strawberries and raspberries are very sweet and the texture is a bit spongey. The chocolate is decent quality chocolate! When I tried this granola it reminded me of a chocolate covered strawberry. I would say this is more like a treat granola or a dessert granola, when you’re craving a granola that’s a little more sweet and indulgent this is a go-to.
I personally don’t love chocolate as a part of my breakfast so I probably won’t buy this again. It’s just too sweet and not the healthiest granola.
What’s your favorite breakfast item to purchase from Costco?
