Who would have known that there would be a particular granola that would make me become a lover of cereal and granolas? I’ve never been fond of them because of their high-carb and high-sugar qualities; healthier granola alternatives tasted like shredded cardboard with flavors that gave me the impression of chewing on a tree. Laughing Giraffe Organics has thoroughly disabused me of this basic concept of granola. I not only love this granola for breakfast, I find it’s a perfect “pick-me-up” snack throughout my day. With names like Cranberry Orange Cacao, how can one go wrong?
My favorite of the three granolas ? Don’t ask me to choose! I guess this is why Whole Foods chose to support this company’s three granolas and “vanilla almond snackaroons,” lending money to the owners to ensure this venture would succeed, which it no doubt has.
Justin Baumgartner, Phoenix, Arizona native, and his brother, Josh Daniels, stay on top of the daily production of their four popular products, ensuring no bag goes out violating their strict standards of organic, raw, vegan, and free of wheat, dairy, soy, and peanut. The facility adheres to these standards, too.
Justin is a self-taught chef and certified holistic health counselor and studied in New York under some of the most notable stars in the New York vegan and raw food community before returning to Phoenix to launch Laughing Giraffe Organics at only 31 years of age. It is now a thriving company with in-demand products from the finest retailers in the U.S.
The Pineapple Macadamia Coconut Cacao is loaded with large hunks of macadamia nuts with a hint of the tropics and just the slightest aroma of cacao dancing in your mouth. Being a ginger lover, I adore the Walnut Pecan Cherry Ginger Granola with its large hunks to grab as a snack or break up into smaller bites to dance in my bowl with rice milk as I dive in with my spoon, one bite at a time. The flavor is outrageous. No other word can describe it.Justin lives his motto, “Made for people by people,” and his products very much exemplify this.
This food company is given a thumbs up and
is HIGHLY recommended by me.
