|Product review by Lisa VanWilliams|
Upfront Foods Granola is made from 7 simple ingredients from trusted suppliers, and non-GMO 100% whole grain certified organic oats. The oats are from a 5th generation family farm in North Dakota, and the 100% pure maple syrup is from a 7th generation family farm in Vermont. They are packaged in small handy packs that can easily fit into pockets, backpacks, and purses for that perfect "take me anywhere" healthy snack. The bars are also Certified Vegan. We took some out on the trail with us and it was perfect.
Gigi Twist is a mom and former teacher and she started Upfront Granola up when she was looking for quick and easy breakfast options that weren't filled with artificial ingredients and preservatives. She named it Upfront because they decided to put the ingredients right on the front of the package so you know easily what's in there.
They offer three different flavors of granola and a variety pack. The flavors are Original Crunch, Pecan Almond Crisp, and Cranberry Zest. A sustainability packaged 12 count goes for $17.99 and comes in a recycled box.
Upfront works with Chef Victoria Allman, so if straight up granola it not your thing, she has some incredible recipes to incorporate the granola into like this one for Pumpkin Cheesecake Tartlet With Upfront Granola Crust:
