I’ve been wanting to write about the one on the left for a while now. Sadly, school starting has made me crazy and barely able to keep up with anything. And since I wanted to take my time on this post, I figured it was better to wait until I had a chance to actually sit down and write it.
We ate the cereal in several ways. One way was the obvious, in a bowl of cereal:
I also had it mixed with Greek yogurt on my first day back to work:
And this morning I had it in my overnight oats:
So, what do I think about the cereal? I love it. It’s just sweet enough that you can totally snack on it, but not so sweet that you feel like you’re eating a sugar bomb for breakfast. It’s really only two ingredients: toasted whole wheat flakes and whole flaxseeds. It’s light, crunchy, and is a perfect texture for all three of the ways I ate it.
If it’s milk, it gets a little softer but not soggy and retains the natural sweetness, and in the Greek yogurt it added an excellent crunch that I honestly might like better than granola. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE granola, but Uncle Sam cereal is lighter. I still get the sweetness without the “thicker” granola texture. Does that make sense? It’s the only way I can describe it.
I can definitely see myself buying this cereal for myself more often. I love a good healthy cereal that doesn’t taste like cardboard, and this definitely fits the bill!
