Archer Farms Cocoa Vanilla Granola

The name of this product says it all: it's granola, and it has big chunks of cocoa...stuff. I'm not sure what the cocoa stuff is made of, other than cocoa, but I must admit, it's fairly tasty.

The granola worked well as a breakfast cereal, but I was happy to eat it dry, right out of the box, too. In the grand scheme of things, this is one of the better cereals I've tried from Archer Farms, even though some sound a lot fancier than this one.
It's sweet, but not excessively so, and the cocoa and vanilla are well-balanced. The base is a vanilla granola-type flavor, with little bursts of rich cocoa in every other bite. The cocoa flavors are in the direction of Cocoa Pebbles cereal, but maybe not quite so sugary. This cereal, like most granolas, doesn't get super soggy even after several minutes in milk, but it remains crunchy to the last bite.

If you're interested in seeing a close-up photo of the product, there are some pics of it here, as we used it as the base for a certain fictitious dog food fit for human consumption on another blog. Be mindful, there are other foods mixed in with it in these pics. This cereal is just the tan granola and small dark brown chunks.

All in all, I give this product 8 out of 10 stars.
