People are raving about Ola! “Love this no oil granola! We eat it with soy milk, straight or as a mix in for trail mix. It is very tasty with excellent ingredients. So happy to have found this product!”- Ann, Amazon reviewer. “This is the best granola I have found out there. Great taste. Low sugar. Gluten free. Simple goodness. Good stuff!!”- Sarah, Amazon reviewer. “This granola is absolutely amazing. The ingredients are simple, it's delicious, and though I'm not sensitive to gluten, this would be great for those who are. It's got this hint of cinnamon, the perfect amount of crunch, and it's slightly (and I mean slightly) sweet. It's really wonderful with yogurt. It's awesome. Good for kids, good for adults who sometimes eat like kids. Just good stuff. Try it!”- Mik, Amazon reviewer. “The gluten free granola from Ola! is simply perfect. Simple ingredients that are non-GMO and no other crazy additives put together in unique ways that are worth savoring! The fact that they are also low fat, low sodium and have zero trans fats is just the icing on the proverbial cake for me! Now I have a healthy snack and breakfast option that is not only tasty, but also good for me!”- Krista, Gloriously Green Gal blogger. “Love this granola with yogurt and fresh blueberries! It's low in sugar, gluten-free, and packed with whole grain. Love it!”- Susan, Amazon reviewer. “I never write companies, but I am so happy to have discovered Ola. As a newish vegan I have been struggling to find a granola that doesn't use honey or milk solids but still tastes good and isn't like eating sand. Ola has exciting flavors and ingredients I can actually pronounce and feel good about. Plus the charity aspect makes it even more compelling since each dollar I sped is a vote and I am clearly backing a winner.” - Mac, Ola! customer.
