Traded in my 5-year-old 31 bag for a new bag. I use this for work. I work an hour from my home and my typical day  including my commute is a 12 hour day away from home, 5 days a week  so I keep lots of things on hand with me..I am a prepper. So this bag had to be big and easy to carry, and obviously appealing. Kinda feel like I outgrew my other bag and I now use it in my car for storage. Win, Win. I am in love with this bag.

Thank you my old friend.  I will now use you for keeping my car in order and tidy.

Van’s Granola

On-the-run snacking has never been so sensible!

  Van’s Soft-Baked Whole Grain Granola Clusters in Blueberry Walnut and Cranberry Almond are made from wholesome, gluten-free, whole grain oats and are a tasty complement to Greek yogurt or ice cream, or on their own right out of the bag as a midday snack. These clusters are so wonderful, the texture was comparable to Soft Baked Cookie Granola Dough with Dried fruit and Nuts. My husband really loved the Blueberry Walnut. I hoarded most of the Cranberry Almond for my mid-day snack at work.
