I received the opportunity to try two Kellogg’s cereals and in exchange all I have to do is write a review. Oh yea, I have definitely arrived. Wooo.
In today’s economy buying food is a constant struggle between buying store-brand and name-brand. The price of an item can definitely affect our choices. Do you sacrifice taste to save what could add up to a few dollars or do you buy what tastes good? When I am shopping, I check for what’s on sale before I make that decision; so I can’t express to you how excited I am to have this opportunity to try before I buy.
Cereal is an important part of my family’s life; we don’t just eat it in the mornings we sometimes eat it as a snack too. We have tried many different cereals including many Kellogg’s products. Both cereals got a 2-1 vote, 2 of us liked one cereal and 1 didn’t, then 2 of us didn’t like one cereal and 1 did. This is no surprise seeing as we all can’t agree on which % of milk to buy.
I will start with Kellog’s FiberPlus Cinnamon Oat Crunch.
My 13-year-old son seemed to be the only one who actually liked this cereal and wouldn’t mind eating it again. He described it as having a cinnamon flavor. He preferred this cereal to the other one which is funny to me because he does not like cinnamon cereals at all.
My 15-year-old daughter said it tastes like cinnamon but, has a weird aftertaste. She refused to finish the bowl, I felt bad for her because she looked ill. “It can’t be that bad, ” I told her. “It’s nasty!!!” she exclaimed. Needless to say, she won’t be the one finishing off the box.
When it came my time to try it though, I knew exactly what my daughter meant. It has an overwhelming cinnamon flavor and a lingering aftertaste. By lingering I mean you have to wash your mouth and throat out repeatedly and it takes a very long time to disappear. I don’t know if it is the oats or the fiber but, it isn’t appealing at all. I also noticed the circle shaped cereal gets soggy quickly, not something a cereal with the name crunch should be doing. I cannot recommend this cereal, it’s not worth the money you will pay for it. And quite frankly I too feel ill after eating it.
The second cereal was Kellogg’s FiberPlus Berry Yogurt Crunch.
This cereal gets rave reviews from me; it is everything its name says it is. It’s berrylicious!!!
The berry flavor takes over the flakes and there are little berries in it, the yogurt pieces also have a hint of berry flavor. This cereal having fiber in it and not tasting like most fiber cereals is a plus.The flakes stay crunchy until the very last bite and doesn’t taste like most flake cereals do; you know that cardboard-like texture that makes you want to pick out the flakes and eat what’s left. All in all I love this cereal.
My 15-year-old daughter says the berry flavor is too overwhelming, she thinks there is too many different types of berry flavors going on all at once. I guess she just isn’t a berry person.
My 13-year-old son enjoyed this cereal and especially liked the yogurt bits.
I absolutely recommend Kellogg’s FiberPlus Berry Yogurt Crunch cereal. I will definitely be buying this; two out of three in my family like it so I know it won’t go to waste. If you like berries and yogurt you need to run out and get you a box of this berry good cereal.
