Nature Valley[R] Brings Naturally Irresistible Snack to Granola Aisle.

New Nature Valley([R]) Granola Thins in Stores Now

MINNEAPOLIS -- Nature Valley([R]) is squarely hitting the granola bar aisle this summer with a brand-new, 100 percent natural treat. Nature Valley([R]) Granola Thins are delicate granola squares, available in Dark Chocolate and Peanut Butter flavors, with a crispy, melt-in-your-mouth texture. Individually packaged, Granola Thins are perfect for a quick afternoon snack or a leisurely evening indulgence.

Ingredients such as whole grain rolled oats, roasted peanuts and honey deliver a taste that's wonderfully delicious, with a toasted texture. With crispy granola on one side, and creamy peanut butter or dark chocolate flavor on the other, Granola Thins are ideal for satisfying mid-afternoon cravings. And, at 80 or 90 calories per square, you can feel good about eating them. From busy moms to overbooked professionals, Granola Thins provide a sweet escape when you need it most.

"People are looking for smart snack options that still satisfy those sweet cravings they might otherwise find in something heavier and less wholesome," said David Wilson, associate marketing manager for Nature Valley. "New Nature Valley Granola Thins are the perfect 100 percent natural afternoon pick-me-up. Granola Thins are a uniquely sweet, yet wholesome snack with a texture like nothing else in the granola aisle."

Nature Valley Granola Thins are sold in 6-ounce boxes, containing 10 individually wrapped Thins, at a suggested retail price of $3.59. The product can be found in the granola aisle alongside other Nature Valley products in select markets. It will be available nationwide beginning in June.
