New Year, New Look. Introducing Our New Sustainable Food Packaging

Happy New Year! We’re starting 2021 with a new look and we have new sustainable food packaging and recyclable bags that should start making their way to you in the next month.  If you’ve been indulging in our delicious granolas for a while now, our current packaging is probably familiar to you. The kraft tin-tie bags with our iconic red wagon stickers carried us from our farmer’s market days to our expanding Little Red Wagon Granola family. We knew we wanted to have a new look but wanted to be true to our roots: classic, simple, and fun. 

Introducing our new sustainable food packaging

The new fully sealed bags will ensure that the granola you love will taste as fresh as the day we made it.  In turn, this can help reduce food waste and prevent food safety issues before they happen.  They are also recyclable and on the back of every bag, you’ll find the “Store Drop Off” label.  Please bring your bags to local retail stores where they collect plastic grocery bags for recycling.  

Part of our sustainability mission 

The bags are also sustainably made which is a win-win-win for the environment, our customers, and our company.  We strive, in all areas, to do things that are good for our customers, our employees, and for the environment. We believe that every product can positively impact the earth through the choices we make as a company. We’ve partnered with vendors that use industry best practices and leading technology to ensure that the bags are manufactured in a way that minimizes greenhouse gas emissions and VOCs.

Packing a punch with flavors and color 

Our granola flavors have always been special and now our bags pack a punch too with their vibrant colors that highlight our great recipes.  We hope you enjoy the new look. Please keep your eyes peeled for the new designs at your favorite community grocery store.  

Grab your new bag!

Whether you’re a long-time fan or just stumbled upon our granola, now’s the time to try a bag!  With our fresh look and new sustainable food packaging, we’re ready to start the new year on a positive note. We are looking forward to all the good (and snackable moments) to come and hope you are too!


The Difference Sustainably Sourced Oats Make in Our Whole Grain Granolas

At Little Red Wagon Granola, our mission has always been to source the best ingredients. So that you can taste the difference in every bite. And the basis of any great granola is high-quality oats. We use sustainably sourced oats as the key ingredient in each of our whole grain granolas. Which gives you all of the quality and none of the fluff. 

Where We Get Our Oats 

To make the freshest, most flavorful granola we needed quality oats that were delicious solo but could hold their own against our flavor profiles. Every perfect cluster of Little Red Wagon features Northerly Oats. These minimally-processed oats come from a sustainable agriculture farm in Canada that cares as much about their products as the people who consume them. 

Benefits of Using Sustainably Sourced Oats

Part of our mission is to use sustainably grown ingredients in line with our healthy food, healthy people, healthy food mindset. For our oats, sustainable growth means they use modern technology and traditional methods “to meet today’s food needs, without starving the future.” Other benefits of these oats include:


The lack of preservatives or additives in our oats makes them naturally sweet, nutty, and creamy. But they’re also subtle enough to let flavors like Chunky Monkey and Cosmopolitan be the stars in our whole-grain granola.


Check out the bottom of the bag on competitor granolas and you’ll see mostly powder––something that comes from using lower quality oats that break and crumble during the production process. At Little Red Wagon Granola, we call these lower quality oats “fluffy” oats. Our minimally processed, hearty, consistently sourced oats result in the clusters that we all love and enjoy. When baked to perfection, our granola becomes crisp, crunchy, and delicately nutty clusters of goodness and joy.  


Because of supplier consistency, every grain in every bag is the same high quality. Even more impressive, the folks over at Northerly can tell us exactly how, where, and when each individual grain was grown. So each batch of our granola is also consistently flavorful and delicious.

Taste the Difference in Our Whole Grain Granolas 

We’re all about balance at Little Red Wagon Granola. And whole-grain granola that’s balanced for the good of our customers and our planet starts with sustainably sourced oats. Taste the difference today by trying one, or preferably all, of our unique flavors.
