love crunch


You heard right.

Love Crunch.

From Costco.

Granola with dark chocolate chunks and berries. It reminds me of my long time favorite, Kashi's Cocoa Beach, which is also chocolate granola, but with coconut and almonds. Of course, I can't find Cocoa Beach anywhere around here, but I just this very minute discovered that I can order it from Amazon.

Seriously, is there anything you can't order from Amazon?

I just had to share, because anytime chocolate can be a legitimate part of breakfast, you need to tell your friends.

Happy Thursday!

  5. I've always wanted to visit a Costco (I think the nearest one is about 45 minutes away) but, I've always had trouble with the concept of PAYING to shop at a store.... Not sure I could get "on board" with that.

    1. I know this will sound like I'm a Costco employee, but I'm not. At first the concept of paying to shop bothered me too, but after shopping there for nearly twenty years, I'm over that! Costco offers a 100% guarantee on their membership fee if you feel like it's not worth it for you. They're the ONLY place we shop for appliances and electronics because of their no hassle return policies. Their products are high quality and often come with bonus items - like a mini-vac with a regular vacuum cleaner. You can check them out for free, too!

  6. Oh yeah I would love to eat this of course I would but I gave up grains in August 2010. Me thinks this has too much sugar content and that probably makes it really really good!! By the way I love your dreamy boat photos below!!

  10. Dang! NOW I need to go to Costco and look for this! Seriously. I don't even want to know the carbs in that thing. Don't. wanna. know.

  11. I am sitting here eating trail mix trying to convince myself that the M&M's in here are healthier than the ones straight out of the bag so you don't have to convince me that chocolate can be a legitimate breakfast food. It looks beautiful and yummy.

  19. Yummy! I think I might just make this myself, since we have fresh strawberries here in California. Small houses, small yards, but (local) strawberries in February. It might be love.

  24. You have got to be kidding...

    I'm going to amazon right now!

    ReplyDelete
  25. You even have pink silverware. very cool.

  26. Hilarious! And wonderfully/sadly, I don't think there is much you can't buy on Amazon.

  27. Love the chocolate-y goodness surrounded by pink! How fun is that! The pink paper straw is just icing on it all!

    And I agree, Amazon sells everything. I'm thinking this wedding might as well be an advertisement for Amazon since we've (well me actually) scored quite a bit of stuff from them (including the appropriate colored paper straws)... of course it does help that I can sit on the couch and buy everything with the touch of a button :)
