Cereal Killer, Part I
A Product Review
I've been eating a lot of cereal lately. All summer, actually. I think cereal makes a great meal for someone with my digestive issues, so I've been dining on cereal with unsweetened almond milk at least one meal a day.
There's nothing like a good bowl of crunchy gluten-free cereal, sweetened (artifically, sadly) and topped with icy cold almond milk.
Ay, as Hamlet said, there's the rub. Is there such a thing as a GOOD bowl of gluten-free cereal?
Yes. Yes. Remarkably, yes. Several of them from a company called Erewhon, part of U.S. Mills
What you see above is Erewhon's newest product, Strawberry Crisp. I won a box at Grandma's Gluten Free Twitter Party, and the nice folks at Erewhon also sent me Corn Flakes and Crispy Brown Rice to try.
I tried. I liked. A lot.
So here's the bottom line: If you miss Special K being gluten free, try the Erewhon Strawberry Crisp. It tastes like I remember Special K tasting. The brown rice cereal makes a great pan of Crispy Brown Rice Treats (seriously, no one could tell the difference) and the corn flakes were just....delicious. With a banana, of course.
Plus, check out this nutritional data! For those of us who are being calorie-conscious, this is a good deal.
So here's what you're looking for on your grocery shelves. Don't take my word for it. Try it. It will brighten up your mornings, or your midnight snack, or your lunch....
Much love, and stay tuned for part II later this week!
