In a taste test conducted by the editors of renowned food site Epicurious, Metropolitan Bakery’s Original Granola beat out 17 others to win the title of best granola in the entire country.

The granola received a winning rating of four forks, with one tester declaring, “It’s just perfect on absolutely everything!” According to the site, “The judges were blown away by all the qualities this Philadelphia-based brand has to offer.”

We have to agree: Metro’s granola, made with oats, honey, maple syrup, sunflower and pumpkin seeds, almonds, pecans, dried cranberries, blueberries, cherries and strawberries, is 100% addictive. 260 calories and 15 grams of fat per 1/4 cup serving be damned.

In celebration of the honor, the bakery is offering a 20% discount on their granola trio (original, coffee chocolate chip, and nut-free cinnamon pomegranate), now through September 8.
