Chai-Power Granola: Unique Flavour Becomes Crowd Pleaser
We are delighted to announce BEASTFAST’s Chai-Power Granola got a 1-star Great Taste Award this year!
Chai-Power Granola with Chai Spices, Coconut & Pecan nuts
The Chai-Power Granola was the third flavour we came up with - you might have guessed, it was inspired by my love for chai spiced lattes! This is my personal favourite flavour out of the three BEASTFAST granola flavours.
I love it for its uniquely strong mixture of spices. We use cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, nutmeg and cloves. It’s also a favourite because I’m a huge fan of coconut and pecan nuts.
Judges from Great Taste Award praised it for its originality, while also commenting that
“It has an excellent texture and it's not too sweet with a good balance between the sweet and the savoury”
What are the Great Taste Awards?
Great Taste is widely acknowledged as the most respected food accreditation scheme for artisan and speciality food producers, and receiving an award is a great honour for us — we’ve long strived to create original, all-natural, nutritious and excitingly flavourful foods that promote a sustainable and healthy lifestyle.
There were 12,772 entries into Great Taste this year and of those products, 3409 products were awarded with one star.
The panel of judges this year included; cook, writer and champion of sustainable food, Melissa Hemsley, Kenny Tutt, MasterChef 2018 champion, author, Olia Hercules, chef and food writer, Gill Meller, Kavi Thakar from Dishoom, food writer and stylist, Georgina Hayden and author and chef, Zoe Adjonyoh, as well as food buyers from Selfridges, Fortnum & Mason, Sourced Market and Partridges.
How to enjoy our Chai-Power Granola?
We always recommend to enjoy our granola three ways: with greek yogurt, milk or just as a snack!
I personally always have it with yogurt and whatever fruits I have in the pantry. Judges from Great Taste also said
“We found that milk brought out the chai spices well”
We couldn’t agree more! Don’t you love that leftover cereal milk flavour?
We’ll be showcasing our award-winning Chai-Power Granola (along with the others) at the London Brunch Fest on 31 Aug to 1 Sep. Will we see you there?
