Check out these granola bar boxes from Gånola by Jeremy Slagle. We love the idea of using icons as the second indicater of ingredients other the list presented right at the front of the pack.
Gånola claims "If we can't spell it, we don't use it" Peanut Butter, Honey, Oats, Coconut, Almonds, Whole Bran, Cranberries, Sunflower Seeds, Blueberries, Green Tea, Coffee Beans, Bacon, Apples, Real Maple Syrup, Whole Oats, And Cinnamon. That's it.

"Gånola is a new bar that will be sold in a box instead of a wrapper. Two individually wrapped half-bars are inside so you can eat some now and keep the rest for later. The die cut window on the front allows people to see all the good stuff that's inside.
Our story began in Columbus, Ohio one winter day when, during a lull in triathalon season, we really REALLY wanted a granola bar, but couldn’t find one that was: a. Satisfying b. Scrumptious c. Simple
Once we’d created our natural, chunky chewy, completely delicious bars, we realized that we needed to name them. While randomly browsing through a Swedish dictionary (you know how you do) we stumbled on the word “gå,” which is Swedish for “tread.” Since, as active outdoors people and amateur environmentalists, we firmly believe in utilizing the world as our playground while treading lightly on the earth and leaving as little footprint as possible, it seemed like a sign. What, we mused, if instead of calling our creations granola bars we called them “gånola bars?” Genius? You tell us."
