Mumbai food: Sample granola bars with quirky flavours and offbeat packaging

Chocolate Almond and Sea Salt bar
While we often look the other way when we spot granola bars, this one enticed us with its cute packaging of an almond and a chocolate bar rowing a boat. Stacked on the shelves at Bombay Salad Co., the granola bars and jars are offerings by The Nuttyway, a venture started by fashion designer-cum-chef Minali Gaba last year. We spotted Mocha Hazelnut, Chocolate Peanut Butter and gluten-free Cinnamon Raisin bars along with Berry Blast Granola Jars.

Piqued by flavours we had only tried in calorie-laden cookies, we picked the gluten-free Chocolate Almond & Sea Salt. The chunky, preservative-free bar was a burst of sweet, nutty and salty flavour with a caramel-chocolate aftertaste. It helped us re-energise after a yoga session. This week, Gaba is also launching vegan bars with dairy-free chocolate, sugar-free cookies bound by almond butter and Goji Cacao Energy Bites for those on a paleo diet. Here’s to a guilt-free treat.
Available at: Bombay Salad Co. in Bandra (W) and NSCI, Worli.
Cost: Rs 85 (bar), Rs 220 (jar)
