Nashville Made: Nola Granola

Have you tried Nola Granola yet? If not, you're missing out on something scrumptious. 

Local snack foods maker, Nola Snacks produces uniquely flavored artisan granola from all natural ingredients right here in Nashville, TN.  Choose from Chocolate Almond, Bourbon Pecan, or our personal favorite, Salted Caramel.  In fact, it's so good that you'll find it now in our Large Nashville Gift Crate and soon to appear in our upcoming Southern Breakfast Collection.  Nothing but the very best will do for our gift options. 

Since we first discovered this sweet and flavorful snack, we've been dreaming up new ways to sneak it into our breakfast, snack time, and desserts.   Here's a few of our favorites:

  • Straight out of the bag by the handful
  • With milk for a sweet cereal breakfast
  • As a topping to frozen yogurt or ice cream
  • Sprinkled on peanut butter spread over apple slices
  • Sprinkled over a banana dipped in honey
  • Over yogurt with fresh fruit

Nashville Made: Soberdough Brew Bread

Nashville Made Soberdough

If you ever wanted to be Martha Stewart or Betty Crocker, but you don’t actually know how to cook, or if you’re a bachelor trying to impress the ladies, Soberdough is going to make all of your dreams come true!  Okay….maybe not all of them, but you’re going to love how easy and fun they’ve made homemade bread. 

In our search for great Nashville made gifts, we recently came across Soberdough bread mixes and knew we just had to try it for ourselves.  After all, we wouldn’t want you to get or give a gift that has sub-par products.  We’re committed to bringing you only the very best!  Seriously.  No “filler” products.  Just genuinely awesome stuff.

Soberdough carries a host of different flavors like Roasted Garlic, Cinnful Raisin, and Buffalovin Wing, but we were dying to try the Green Chile Cheddar mix.  So we procured a bag, checked the fridge for beer, and got started right away!           

Nashville Made Soberdough In The Making

Step 1:  Procure Soberdough bread mix and pour into a large bowl.

Step 2: Pull out a bottle of beer (or carbonated water) from your refrigerator & pour it into the same large bowl.

Step 3: Pour 1 cup of cheddar cheese into your bowl and mix everything together! 

Step 4: Bake in a 9x5 bread pan at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. 

Step 5: Let cool, slice & enjoy! 

Nashville Made Soberdough

It’s really that simple and it turned out to be delicious!  Moist, flavorful, and downright yummy!  We paired ours with a bowl of hot chili while watching some SEC football.  Fall just doesn’t get much better than this!  

Soberdough is not just easy and delicious, but it’s made right here in Nashville with all natural ingredients.  Created by a mother-son team, Soberdough is everything we love about the creative community in Nashville.  Find out more about their story here. 

If you’ve tried Soberdough too, tell us which flavor is your favorite. 

As for us, we’ll be keeping a bag or two in our own pantry and keeping the shelves of High Note filled with Soberdough so we can bring it to you via our Nashville gift collection!
