Brownfield, Maine (August 2005) – The crisp, fresh air and brilliant foliage of the autumn season is just around the corner. It’s a favorite time of year for the friendly folks at GrandyOats in Maine, where apple harvest season will soon be in full swing. To celebrate the season, GrandyOats has announced a new Cinnamon Apple Crisp Granola that features crunchy hazelnuts and warm cinnamon that will remind you of Grandma’s homemade apple crisp.
Sales of GrandyOats’ organic granola are soaring now that the low-carb diet fad has crashed and burned and government guidelines are advising Americans to eat more healthy whole grains. GrandyOats is proud to be a leader of “the grainaissance.” Since 1979, they have micro-baked their traditional granola cereals in small batches using only the finest ingredients. Their commitment to sustainable agriculture is evident since they have emerged as the nation’s only maker of a complete line of all-organic granolas that are available nationwide.
In April, the USDA unveiled MyPyramid, a new food guidance system that recommends that people should consume 3 or more ounce-equivalents of whole-grain products daily. GrandyOats Cinnamon Apple Crisp Granola is a delicious and convenient way to meet daily whole grain needs. Medical research links diets rich in whole grains to reduced risk of heart disease, diabetes, cancer and help with weight management.
Cinnamon Apple Crisp Granola is sold in a convenient 10 oz. re-sealable bag for a suggested retail price of $4.49. Perfect as a healthy snack or as a crunchy breakfast cereal, Cinnamon Apple Crisp is also recommended as a crunchy topping for yogurt, ice cream and fruit. In addition to organic dried apple chunks and organic cinnamon, kosher and wheat-free Cinnamon Apple Crisp contains a delicious blend of hazelnuts, oats, maple syrup, oat flour, crisped rice, brown rice syrup, sunflower seeds, expeller pressed sunflower oil, vanilla and sea salt.
Nestled at the foot of New England’s White Mountains, GrandyOats is housed in a newly restored turn-of-the-century barn surrounded by forests, swift running rivers and breath taking hikes. This is the perfect setting to create healthy, homemade granola. Since 1979, GrandyOats has proudly made traditional granola cereals by hand in small batches, using only the highest quality organic ingredients. GrandyOats is a true “crunchy” company that “walks the talk” one organic step at a time. A portion of profits and time is donated to help maintain the nation’s trails for hikers, bikers and paddlers.
GrandyOats’ granola line now consists of seven unique varieties: Classic, Consciousness Raisin, Low Fat Cranberry Chew, Berries Jubilee, Mainely Maple, Chocolate Peanut Crisp and the new Cinnamon Apple Crisp. GrandyOats also offers a line of Organic Trails snack mixes and bulk roasted nuts. Products are available in hundreds of stores from coast-to-coast including Whole Foods and Wild Oats.
