Snack Spotlight: Lizi’s Granola GoGo Original



I have been making Granola for nearly twenty years now, refining and adapting the recipe as I went along. This Granola is the latest version, and takes into account the many requests I received for a wheat free version. I’ve lost count of the number of cereals I’ve tried over the years and, for me, my granola is the only one that satisfies me so I’m not reaching for the biscuit barrel by mid-morning.

About Green's

1988 Derek Green had a problem. He had to avoid the gluten in barley and wheat, and at that time in the UK- indeed Europe- there was no gluten free beer available. A miserable life without beer lay ahead.

A natural entrepreneur though, he travelled across Europe at the start of the century getting brewery doors slammed in his face. The response was not good.

“Too complicated” and “Why bother?” were common refrains.

So began a long process of discussions, meetings, trials, false hopes, and dead end trails. Breweries did not want to know about production that did not exist and one that could not be quantified.

the breakthrough

The breakthrough came in 2003 when he met an eminent Belgian professor of brewing whom by coincidence had a daughter who also needed to avoid gluten, and there began a relationship with the mutual goal of brewing a beer made from alternative grains to barley, one that would be naturally gluten and wheat free. After numerous trials, in May 2004 Green’s launched the UK’s first ever Alternative Grain and naturally gluten free beer; named not surprisingly ‘Discovery’.

Pretty quickly, once the awards started rolling in, the range expanded and the beers started to be exported to more and more countries eager to try this new range of beers. Today Green’s still produce the original Discovery Ale, plus Dry Hopped Lager and India Pale Ale, all of which are produced with 100% gluten free raw materials.

About the company

Kernel Season’s was born, appropriately enough, at the home of the Maize and Blue. While a student at the University of Michigan, Brian Taylor was looking for ways to bring more flavor to his favorite snack, popcorn. He started to experiment with natural seasonings and ingredients, and shared his creations with friends in the dorm. From the responses he got he knew he had more than the perfect 3 a.m. snack.

Upon Brian’s graduation in 1999, Kernel Season’s got real. It became a real company that introduced itself in movie theaters by giving free samples to patrons looking for something more fun and adventurous than butter and salt. Soon people realized that the best popcorn, movie theater popcorn, was even better with Kernel Season’s. The company took off as the demand for more flavors made with real ingredients ignited across the United States.

Today, Kernel Season’s is America’s number one brand of popcorn seasoning. It is available in over 15,000 stores nationwide including Walmart, Kroger, Target and Safeway. And you can still find us at over 3,000 theaters coast to coast. Want to catch a double feature?
