I received 20 bars of Lola Granola Bars for review purposes. All opinions about this product remain my own!
Yes, I received all the bars you see up in the picture above (which was taken from the site) but without being in individual boxes. Not that I cared--less to recycle! And at the end of this review 1 lucky reader will be able to enter to win on the rafflecopter form exactly what I did. The prize will be shipped direct from Lola Granola Bar in Croton Falls, NY (they are practically my neighbors)
This is their story in their words:
"A few years ago our family hit hard times and we struggled to provide food for our four young children, so we sought help from public assistance and food banks. My husband Ernie was eating junk food to save money so I made him natural granola bars, making sure they were gluten and soy free due to my children's allergies. The kids loved the bars, so did Ernie, and so did his coworkers, who asked to buy some. Lola Granola Bar was born. Named for my 4 awesome children; Ruby, Lola, Ellie, Enzo, and my nephew, Nathan, each of our 5 flavors contain 8 core, all natural, non GMO ingredients.
Because we care, we share Lola Granola Bars with anti-hunger children's back pack programs.

So, how did I like them? I tried and liked them all. I was left with a slight after taste but no worse then any other bar I have tried. I especially loved and appreciated that these are soft chewy bars filled with non GMO ingredients sourced near where they are made. My apartment is pretty hot this year so I refrigerated them immediately--they stayed soft!! There really were not many nuts to be found-maybe they are ground up? There is a video in the site where you can see how these are made.
My favorite? Hands down The Ruby. I am not a fan of whole nuts in bars-I am not allergic to them-just prefer them all crushed up!
I could taste the sweet cranberries and the honey in each bite I took. I will definitely be stopping by one of the stores that carry it in my area and picking up more. I think I finally found something that will get me to eat in the morning!
So what will you receive if you are the 1 lucky winner?
4 bars of The Lola (with almonds and cranberries)

4 bars of The Ellie (with cashews and dates)
