  5. Thank you so much for the idea. Me and my girlfriend are a big fan of the Minions. I even made her pic a photoshop and turn here face into a Gru Princess you know when he tried to cheer up the little girl on her birthday. I really chance Gru’s face to her face and tadaaa turns out to be a GruZilla. So funny and I felt very proud on what I did that I found her very happy. So know this Minion Granola Bar thing. I’m sure she will love this and I hope we can finally land our little Minions of our own. 🙂
