There are plenty of good granolas out there, but sometimes it's hard to find the exact flavor combination you want. Now thanks to Bear Naked's new custom granola builder, you can order your perfect combination of fruit, nuts, and spices — all with just a few clicks.
You start by choosing one of three granola flavors, and then can opt to have Watson (IBM's cognitive platform) suggest mix ins or choose from the list yourself to design your own perfect flavor.
Bear Naked has also partnered with several chefs to come up with their own signature blends. Our Engagement Editor, Ariel, tried one of the chef-made blends. Here's what she had to say:
"I tried one of the premade blends from Bear Naked – chocolate strawberry jalapeño – and I'm totally obsessed. This particular granola includes chunks of chocolate, dried strawberries, and just a hint of jalapeño. It feels decadent without being heavy, and it has just the right amount of spice to wake me up in the morning. If you're feeling adventurous and have $10 to spare, ship one of these things to your office and make your coworkers jealous."
Once you've selected your ingredients, you can also design your packaging by choosing from one of four bears to go on the outside of your container. Finish everything off by naming your signature blend. Because the price point is so reasonable, we think this makes a great custom gift for bachelorette parties or vacation rentals. You can design a granola for the weekend, or a special blend for each guest.
