Ola Granola Gluten Free Granola Review

We are always looking for good tasting gluten free food to eat.  Ola! Foods is providing a wonderful granola for us.  They offered to send me four bags of their granola to review.  I couldn't wait to rip into the bags and taste them all.  We tried the Chocolate Banana Chip, Cranberry Orange Pecan, Vanilla Almond and No Nut Vanilla.  I have to say that the Chocolate Banana Chip was my favorite.  I really enjoyed each of these and we ate them for breakfast with milk, as a topping for ice cream, and a mix in for yogurt.  I am so happy that we found a gluten free granola that we love.  Ola! Foods has some other products that you may enjoy also.  They offer grab and go bars for a great tasting snack when you are on the go.

You can also purchase the granola in bulk 3 lb bags so you don't have to reorder as often.  Make sure you go like them on facebook here and enter their sweepstakes for your chance to win some granola!  You can also follow them on twitter here to stay up to date with their information.

The Ola! Granola Story

It was a "Family Favorite" even before she had a family of her own.  Growing up in a family of eight, Dina Houser enjoyed her mom's healthy, homemade, great-tasting granola - the same satisfying recipe she recreated as a working mother of three young boys.  Carefully fine-tuning her family's recipe - using whole grains, nuts and pure maple syrup - Dina's hand-baked granola quickly became everyone's favorite ready to go breakfast, snack and topping. 

Running a design business with her husband, Dina would bake special blends to gift, "sharing the love" with their clients and friends.  After years of being urged to make her granola avaiable to food lovers everywhere, her son's second grade teacher asked Dina where he could purchase it.  It was then she decided to fulfill her dream of making it for the world to enjoy.  Ola! was born.

With the help and support of family, friends, neighbors and the community, Ola! Foods was launched on Earth Day in 2009.  Soon, the entire household got involved, from packing boxes to attending local events and farmers markets.  Dina's boys even helped come up with the name Ola!  around their kitchen table, eager to say hello to everyone who likes healthy and yummy.

Dina's passion for quality and taste shines through in all aspects of Ola's business.  Since it's inception, the company has achieved significant milestones and praise and now has an extended family of bakers in its state-of-the-art Connecticut kitchens.

Today, families everywhere are saying "Ola!" to our Happy Good for You Energy Food!
