Larabar introduces granola line
MINNEAPOLIS — The makers of Larabar have announced the debut of Renola, a new type of granola made with nuts, fruits, seeds and spices, which the brand is billing as an alternative to classic granola.
"People love snacking, and we want them to feel good about their choices," said Julia Wing-Larson, marketing manager for Larabar. "Larabar has always been a great, gluten-free food, and we saw an opportunity in the marketplace to deliver a grain-free granola to consumers that is not only delicious, but full of whole and simple ingredients."
Renola is available in three flavors: Cinnamon Nut, Cocoa Coconut and Berry. Consumers can purchase Larabar Renola at select Target stores, as well as a variety of grocery stores, for a suggested retail price of $1.79.
