In our household, we go through tons of granola! I'm totally not even exaggerating too! I normally go to Whole Foods and purchase our granola in bulk, pounds at a time. I also like variety so I usually buy 2 or 3 kinds every 2 weeks. I'm always looking for the healthiest but tastiest options since we eat so much of it. I put it in plain yogurt (hence why I want the tastiest option), eat it as cereal, and sometimes just eat it as a snack!
After looking at Twenty-4 Zen's ingredients and nutritional information, seeing that they are 100% vegan and gluten free, all natural, and preservative free, I was impressed and wanted to see how they would taste!

I liked that their sugars was listed at only 5g, which is much lower than many of the other granolas I have seen. They currently have 3 flavors, Lemon Ginger, Mild Chili Mango, and Salted Caramel Chocolate Chunk. I was sent some samples of all three Twenty-4 Zen granola flavors for review. I enlisted both Honey and Kiggster as my taste testers since we all eat granolas and Honey is a self-proclaimed Chili Mango addict so he had to get in on that taste test! The lemon ginger had really nice complex flavors, both lemon and the ginger flavors were apparent but not over-powering. It did carry a tiny bit of a salty tinge to it but it was quickly replaced with some ginger flavoring. As for the mango, it was really mild to me but that's because I love spicy so it didn't taste spicy at all. However, Kiggster absolutely loved the mango chunks in there and was picking them all out! By the time she was done with it, there was no mango really left for Honey! I did not let her try the chocolate flavor since I haven't really been giving her sweets but Honey and I tried it. It was really yummy, but for our household, since we don't eat as much sweets, it was a little too sweet for our morning granola routine. Just an observation, but doesn't change the taste, the salted caramel chocolate chunk granola was more clumpy than the others maybe because the caramel gels the granola together more. So our top choices, were the lemon ginger and then the mild chili mango!!! Our most eager taste tester award would probably go to Kiggster, who took her role very seriously and wouldn't let the lemon ginger granola go after she got a hold of it!
