Review & Giveaway : Cascadian Farms x Farmville Collaboration!


In celebration of Cascadian Farm's recent partnership with Zynga's Farmville, MyBlogSpark has invited me to sample an array of Cascadian Farm and Farmville goodies and also share the same goodies with you! My pack included:

Cascadian Farm Organic's Fruit and Nut Granola is a hearty and filling treat that is packed with flavor, sweetness and crunch. The granola itself has a fresh aroma and a wonderful crunch, while the combination of fruits and nuts (raisins, pumpkin seeds, almonds, sunflower seeds, cherry, cranberry) is appealing and tasty. It was also nice that, as a conventional product, the salt content of this particular product wasn't too alarming at 3% DV per 3/4 cup (according to the box's nutrition label). Munching on the product by itself, I found it a little too sweet for my taste, but some of the others in my household liked the sweetness as is. Personally, I found the product to be much better after the addition of some soymilk which seemed to cut down on the sweetness quite a bit. This granola would make a nice, quick breakfast item for one of those days when I'm craving something a little sweet!


Cascadian Farm Organic's Harvest Berry Chewy Granola Bars were exactly what you'd expect them to be: chewy, sticky and filled with yummy, chewy raisins, blueberries and cranberries. The flavor of the cranberries, raisins and blueberries is very apparent and each contributes distinctly to the overall flavor of the granola bar. Like the granola cereal, I found this product to be a bit more sweet than I would have liked but I can't say it isn't any sweeter than the standard fare. I think these would be great for those who'd like a high energy snack (13g of sugar per 35g bar according to the product label).

Oh- about the collaboration! If you play Farmville, you've probably already noticed Cascadian Farm's presence in the game. Cascadian Farm, via its "Farmer Joe Cascadian" Facebook account (click on the link to add him as a friend), will be tending to Cascadian Farm's virtual farm and also offering users product coupons and limited edition Cascadian Farm Organic Blueberry seeds to gamers. This collaboration will last until the 26th of this month so get on your virtual farming gloves and start planting!

  2. Sorry, this is my second post, since I'm a newbie and didn't realize that not everyone could find my e-mail in my Google profile. Okay, so I *do* play FarmVille (daily) but I have not yet tried the Cascadian Farms products you reviewed on your blog. Thanks! :D

    We grow our own veggies, and we eat locally to support out local farmers market.

  167. With an organic lifestyle, I believe our family consistently thinks about what we eat, and we eat more healthily.

  168. I do not play farmville. But the rest of my family is addicted to it. My two year old keeps wanting to see the goats on Daddy's computer. :)
