New Special K Granola Review and Giveaway

Just over a week ago I was very kindly sent some of the new Special K Granola to try.  I’ve never tried granola before and neither has dad of 3, however we are currently looking at ways to eat a bit more healthier and I need to shed the last of my pregnancy weight (yes I still have some two years on!).   We were sent some Raisins and Red Apples Special K Granola and some Cranberry, Pumpkin seeds and Almonds Special K Granola along with a limited edition tote bag and tea towel. 
When the granola first arrived my initial thoughts were that I liked the look of the Red Apple and Raisin granola and decided that would be the first one I would try.  While dad of 3 opted to try the Cranberry, Pumpkin Seeds and Almond granola first.  The next morning dad of 3 was up before me and was first to try a bowl of granola, he was very impressed.  He had thought it might be very chewy but wasn’t at all and he thoroughly enjoyed it.  When I was ready for breakfast I prepared myself a bowl of the Red Apple and Raisin granola with a splash of milk.  I don’t like milk on it’s own so only tend to have just enough to eat my cereal so applied the same to the granola.  The raisins were lovely and juicy and although the apple did get a bit soggy when it soaked up the milk it was quite enjoyable and I was impressed for my first taste of granola.  

The next day we swapped and I had the Pumpkin seed, Cranberry and Almond granola for breakfast.  It was packed with flavour and I enjoyed it although found a bit harder to chew the almonds and pumpkin seeds.  Dad of 3 found the red apple became too soggy for his liking and wasn’t as flavoursome as the other one.  We had a laugh about it being typical that we both liked the one the other person hadn’t but then it just shows not everyone has the same taste!  However we both agreed that it was not what we had expected from granola and it was actually quite enjoyable.  I don’t think I would eat it daily but would certainly look to have it two or three times a week to help vary my breakfasts and make it a bit more enjoyable.  Dad of 3 has finished the bag of the Cranberry, Pumpkins seeds and Almond granola and has requested I buy more so that’s got to be a good sign.  

Special K Granola is available from all major supermarkets from February 2014 and has a recommended retail price of Β£2.99 per 370g bag.  Special K Granola is made from Oats, Wheat, Barley, Spelt and Rye and is also fortified with 6 B vitamins and iron.  It also has 30% less fat than other granola cereal’s on sale in the UK and Republic of Ireland.  For more information please visit
The lovely people at Special K have also given me two cases, one of each variety – Red Apple and Raisin and Cranberry, Pumpkin Seed and Almond, to give away to one lucky person.  To be in with a chance of winning all you have to do is complete the rafflecopter form below.  
Good Luck
