Special K’s Low Fat Granola

Low-fat Granola. New but not improved.

Granola is very calorie dense but it’s lightweight and great for outdoorsy people. It contains rolled oats, honey, nuts, and dried fruits, so it’s super tasty and healthy. Use it as a topping, in desserts, or as a cereal!

When I saw this new low fat granola on the shelves, I was ecstatic! Not because it was on sale (two for $8.00), but the fact that it was Special K. I’ve been satisfied with most Special K products, so I did not hesitate to give it a try.

Sadly, this low fat Granola did not cut it for me. It was dry and rather tasteless. Although it was slightly sweetened, my taste buds were a bit confused. I wasn’t sure what I was eating, which is strange since granola is distinctly delicious. I guess granola is one of those foods whose fat and sugar content should not be tampered with.

Generally, this option would be a healthier alternative than most leading granola since it’s made with 50% less fat. According to the nutrition facts, Special K’s low fat granola contains a lot of vitamins and nutrients. It’s still a bit high in calories carrying 210 calories for every ½ cup (54g).

I would prefer the leading granola. If you ever try it, let me know! Maybe it was just me (:
