A 2023 Good Food Award Winner!

Sometimes food not only tastes good, but it does good too. The Good Food Foundation's mission is to "celebrate, connect, empower, and leverage the passionate and engaged, yet often overlooked, players in the food system who are driving towards tasty, authentic and responsible food in order to humanize and reform our American Food culture." Cali Granola's original blend, the Maple Cranberry Pecan, that started it all, and the Chocolate Cherry Agave, which was created for the Los Angeles County Arboretum, were both chosen as finalists. The Chocolate Cherry Agave Granola was announced as a 2023 Good Foods Award winner, with the Good Foods website stating that "With over 2,000 entries each year, the competition is fierce for a Good Food Award. In each category, three food crafters from each region – North, South, East, West, and Central – receive the honor each year." It is an amazing validation of Cali Granola's goal that we make healthy taste so delicious that it is gift-worthy. Cali Granola strives to provide health-minded delicious baked goods that support a busy lifestyle. Embracing the philosophy of ‘you are what you eat,’ Cali Granola believes that good food choices lead to a healthy body and mind. All natural, no preservatives, no artificial colors, no artificial flavors, high in protein and whole grain fiber, but most importantly, oh so incredibly delicious. Something this wonderful is indeed gift-worthy to yourself and your loved ones. While we specialize in granola, Chef Sonia's inventive brain can't help but continually invent new products to share!
