Enjoy Life Cranapple Crunch Granola

Recommended Posts

I spent good money on this product, only to find it has the taste and texture of Milkbone dog biscuits (sad to say I know what dog treats taste like...tried them once when I was a kid! :lol: ) This granola was rock hard and awful tasting. I can't understand how Enjoy Life could pass this off as food! Maybe it helps with keeping teeth clean and healthy like Milkbones do. :rolleyes:

I know exactly what you mean, I bought this same product a few months ago, I could not even swallow it....it tasted like cardboard. I believe it was about $5-$6.

My family doesn't mind it but I think the cinnamon crunch is the better of the three.

Enterolab positive results only June 06:
Me HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0301; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2, 7)
Husband HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0302; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2,8)



The whole family has been soy free since February, gluten free since June 2006.

The whole family went back to a gluten diet October 2011.  We never had official testing done and I decided to give gluten a go again.  At this point I've decided to work on making some gluten free things again, though healthwise everyone seems to be fine.  The decision to add gluten back in was also made based on other things I'd read about the 2nd sequence of genes.  It is my belief that we had a gluten intolerance, but thanks to things I've learned here, I know more what to keep an eye on.  If you have a confirmed case of celiac, please don't go back to gluten, it's a lifelong lifestyle change.

I'm with you! I bought this product about 2 weeks ago and returned it! I was afraid I'd break a tooth and the granola did not look as yummy as the picture on the box!!! YUCK!!!

Maybe it needs a new name: Crapapple Crunch :lol:

I think that is a good idea, that is about what it tasted like. Milk did not do it any justice either.

Hillarious. :lol: I'm sitting here eating a bowl of it for the first time while I browse this site. I'm thinking the same thing...I'm going to break a tooth! I thought it would get softer after it soaks in milk, but it really holds up! I'm not going to buy it again.

If you scrutinize, you won't be glutenized.

It makes a far better dessert topping than an actual cereal.

I love Enjoy Life's cookies (except the No Oats <_< ), and thought about trying this. Now, I think not.... Thanks for saving me the money!

This was the reason I bought the cereal, the cookies were very good. Talk about being totally the opposite!

It does seem as if the products vary greatly doesn't it. We don't like the no oats cookies either.

On the cereal, we've had some that were softer and some that were harder. I still like the cinnamon crunch the best. My kids eat all the flavors and like it. The last boxes I've bought have been softer.
