One Saturday morning six years ago, Lucy forgot to bake a cake for the monthly library bake sale in her small town of East Blue Hill, Maine. Always thinking, Lucy took the big batch of granola she had just made, split it into mason jars and took it down to the bake sale. The granola sold out quickly and soon neighbors were coming to Lucy’s door requesting more. The rest, as they say, is history!
Every 1 lb bag of granola sold through this website will have a donation of 50c made by Lucy’s Granola to a chosen cause. From now until Christmas it will be a charity I often support, one that always makes me cry—Back Pack Program from Feeding America. I find it especially unbearable that for many children some of the only food they eat is at school. I hated school food! So we will donate to Feeding America’s weekend backpack program. Imagine dreading the end of school because you know you are going to be hungry. Too awful to think about. I like the attempt to normalize the help through innocuous backpacks filled with enough calories to get the children through the weekend.
“Her extra seedy variety is nutty, not too sweet and generally rather light for a granola. Sweetened with honey and maple syrup from a local farm it’s one of the better-balanced granolas you’ll find on any store shelf” — Joe Capuano from Zingerman’s
“Take it from me, when we tested these new trail mixes from Lucy’s not only did I go through the roof, pretty much everyone in our tasting did so too. I think it’s the simplicity of the mixes–and no added salt, plus the quality of the nuts and fruit. ”
–Patrick, CEO, Woodstock Farmers’ Market
Lucy’s Granola Toffee Crunch neither tastes too wholesome nor too indulgent; it packs in plenty of bittersweet chocolate flavor without too much sweetness. We’d eat it out of hand or as an ice cream topping. -PopSugar
