The other day a box showed up – you know the one, with the smile on it. Although I didn’t order anything. ?? Somebody did. Yes, my husband is an internet shopper. He also likes infomercials and ‘How’d They Do That’ shows. Turns out one evening he was watching a show about how this company makes cereals. He was intrigued and inspired by their commitment to their company and customers. Off to Google he went,….and he ordered a sample pack (of some sort) to see how it was. I’m glad he did.
I’ve eaten my share of health food cereals and much of it has been like the ‘Quarry’ from the SNL skit ! And how is it that it always seems to taste like the store? You know, that generic cinnamon/ginger/sage smell that hangs in the air of most every vitamin depot. This is different.
I like this stuff – the ‘O’s are really good, and just sweet enough. Wait, did it say ‘made with beans and brown rice’? Yes, yes it did. The Oat Granola’s are great too ! Yes, they’re fattening, ALL granola is (unless it’s laced with other crap to hold it together). There are actually different flavors – other than cinnamon. The apple has big pieces of apple in it and the coconut in one isn’t all dried super hard. It’s really good, and dare I say, fresh tasting. Any non-health-food cereal buff (um, my guys) would be all over these!
So, If you’re looking around the store shelves for an alternative to what ‘Big Corporate’ has to offer, check them out – and their smiles are on the box too. Those people in Colorado are just too healthy and happy. Maybe they eat a lot of this cereal.
