* I used to love this granola until they changed the formula for it. I thought that I had gotten a bad batch and reoredered it. It was terrible. Please change it back to the way it used to be!
This review is specific to Carb Counters Granola, Cinnamon Apple
The texture of this can only be described as sand. The tiny specs are rock hard and almost painful to chew, even when soaked in milk to soften. The flavor tastes like chemical artificial sweetener. I tried using this product up by mixing it in with other granolas/cereals to "hide" it, but it ruined everything I tried to make with it. I ended up throwing most of it away.
I have no idea how this product has so many positive reviews. I eat a lot of low carb products and have found plenty of cereals and granolas that are muchhhhhhhh better than this. Don't buy this!

* Most of the negative reviews I read complained that the product had changed from one they really liked. I should have looked at the dates of the favorable reviews to see that they are all more than 3 years old! I am a fan of Flax-Z-Snax granola which is chunky and moderately crunchy. Since it is no longer being sold by Netrition, I bought one of each flavor of the Dixie Diner based on the majority of 5 star reviews and was disappointed in them all. It is a very loose granola and extremely crunchy, so much so that it hurt my teeth after chewing a full serving. I think it is also too artificially sweet tasting. I'll finish eating what I bought in small servings, but I won't buy it again. If you liked Flax-Z-Snax, the Sensato is a comparable product. I like that one a lot.
