It was with great anticipation I looked forward to Kellogg's Fibre Plus cereal .....
Toasted Whole Grain, Crunchy granola clusters, 40% of recommended daily fibre.... Picked Summer Berry flavour.Only 130 calories per 32 g. 2 % fat. Low fat, trans fat free,low sodium,source of 7 essential vitamins.
Sounds so good. Sounds so healthy.
Ordinarily I eat Post Great Grains, Date, Raisin or Pecan , Kashi, old fashioned puffed wheat or oatmeal, which may colour the rest on my comments;
I opened the package, at a quick glance , looks like dry dog food..
On went the milk , with first bite thought ,
Looked at the ingredients list;
first on list , whole oat FLOUR!, next corn bran and third SUGAR!. Fourth mixed berry flavoured clusters( rolled oats, SUGAR, oat fibre, corn bran, CORN SYRUP, wheat starch, HONEY, corn flour, vegetable oil, and on and on ...
Yes they do claim to actually have real flavour with apple puree, strawberries and blueberries.
Certainly an eye opener when one reads the ingredients.
I was very surprised at the taste, it was not pleasant at all.
Over processed and chemical tasting .
This is a very disappointing cereal . Definitely would not recommend it.....
Kellogg's even sent a dollar off coupon which is a shame as I won't be using.
If anyone is interested in trying this cereal after my comments I will happily send along this coupon if you let me know so you can test this cereal yourself..
One tip I want to pass on is a web site I visit often Food Facts , a site dedicated to objective information about nutrition facts, ingredients and food products..I am trying to become an empowered consumer .
