While on the road I actually came across these in a travel rest area. I am always amazed when I come across new products in unlikely places. I sampled three products from Oskri: Raisin Granola, Cashew Granola, and their Coconut with Organic Dark Chocolate Bar from their Oskri Organics line.
First up was the Raisin Granola which came in a pretty decent-sized package that was easily a couple of good-sized servings. This mix was not only gluten-free but also dairy-free, vegan, Halal, and Kosher. It was an interesting mix of buckwheat, raisins, sunflower seeds, pecans, date syrup, and chicory root extract. It had a robust texture that packed a serious amount of crunch. Flavor-wise it had a deep roasted flavor that had a subtle sweetness to it. I could easily see the flavor not being everyone’s cup of tea because it was a bit on the over-roasted side and paired with the chicory undertones added a slight level of bitterness.
Next up was the Cashew Granola. This was more subtle in flavor than the raisin variety. This was pretty much the same base as the previous variety with the addition of cashews and cranberries. This variety was a bit more sweet and lacking the slight bitterness of the previous mix paired well with the subtle sweetness of the dried cranberries.
Last up was a Coconut with Dark Organic Dark Chocolate Bar from Oskri’s Organic line. This was my favorite of the trio because it was basically a decadent Mounds-like bar that was lacking of any mystery ingredients. In addition to being gluten-free it is also lactose-free and vegan. It had a great flavor with the subtle coconut paired with the rich, dark organic chocolate. The chocolate itself was mildly sweet and perfect balanced with the coconut.
So, on your next journey be sure to check out the airport kiosks or rest area shops as you never know what gluten-free treats await. Also, head on over to Oskri’s Web site to check out their complete product line and for more information on their products.
