Happy weekend! 8)
We’re already a third of the way through September! Where has the time gone?
This morning I woke up and was overjoyed to see that it was time to open a new cereal box! As a cereal lover, it is a requirement that I impose cereal regulations on my box-opening so that I don’t end up with shelves full of open cereals that all just happen to go bad at once (and possibly even become infested with bugs.)
It was only a week ago that the generous folks at Attune Foods sent me two boxes of their Gluten-free Erewhon cereal to try, and I’ve been practically counting down the days until it was time to open the mixed berry flavor.
Well, today was that day 8)
I will admit, I’ve never been the biggest fan of fruity cereals. Maybe it’s partly due to a childhood full of sugar-coated Fruit Loops and Fruity Pebbles, but I’ve never been one to pick a fruit flavor over a plain one.
This Erewhon Mixed Berry Brown Rice cereal was a completely different ball game. Not only is this baby low fat, organic and gluten free, but Attune Foods prides themselves on their use of pure, non-GMO ingredients, no artificial sweeteners and no refined flours or sugars. Plus, check out this baller ingredient list!
I was immediately impressed by the fact that the dried fruit actually looked like REAL fruit and not some fake outline of an apple or bushel of grapes.
I poured 1 cup of the cereal into a bowl and also took note of how gracious Attune Foods was with the amount of berries that they loaded into the box! Lots of real fruit? Count me in
I topped the cereal with a 1/2 of a sliced banana, added some almond milk, and prepared to dig in.
The verdict? I just may have converted to the fruity side! I couldn’t get over the fact that I was actually looking forward to the spoonfuls with the dried pieces of fruit! Yet again, great job Attune Foods
**Note: Although Attune Foods did provide me with a sample of the product to review, the thoughts & opinions expressed in this post are completely my own.**
Do you even have to ask? Of course I had some turkey bacon on the side
A bit to think about: Are you a fruity cereal fan?
Did you ever eat Fruit Loops or Fruity Pebbles as a kid?
