I used to get on actually huge cereal kicks the place I might eat the stuff each morning for breakfast. I imply, generally for years on finish, I used to be simply into cereal. Then for some time I might transfer on to one thing else like donuts, or oatmeal, or yogurt. I’ve even been that man that may eat Doritos and Mountain Dew at seven o’clock within the morning now and again. And sure, if it was the weekend, or if I known as in sick to work, I might spend the morning taking part in video video games. There’s not a lot else you possibly can legitimately do in the event you select Mountain Dew and Doritos for breakfast.
I can not deal with the HFCS anymore, so I have never performed that shortly. But in addition, oddly, I have never been on any main cereal kicks these days. I really feel like ever since I have been married to Sonia, for some cause, each time I’ve felt like cereal, we both have none readily available, or we have no milk within the fridge. As soon as a month or so, all the celebs will align and I will truly really feel like consuming cereal and we’ll have all the required components to arrange a bowl. Such an alignment occurred simply yesterday.
Opening the bag of Dealer Joe’s Chocolate Almond Granola Cereal, there is a nice whiff of chocolatey goodness. It is harking back to Cocoa Pebbles, however not fairly as ricey or candy, and maybe a tad richer.
The granola chunks are the proper measurement for a cereal—not too huge, not too small. There is a truthful quantity of almond slivers, too, though I do not suppose a big enhance in that division would have been outrageous. Even doubling the presence of the almonds could not have damage in my humble opinion. Happily, the granola is fairly respectable by itself.
Just like the scent, the flavour is chocolatey and candy. It isn’t excessive sugary, although. The chocolate is satisfying and errs on the aspect of wealthy cocoa slightly than chocolate sweet. It is simply robust sufficient to style like a flavorful deal with with out fully overshadowing the nuttiness of the almonds. The granola and nuts are each crunchy, even after a chronic interval of submersion.
The granola dyes the milk good and brown by the top of the bowl and yields splendidly chuggable chocolate milk. In a method, I feel I benefit from the residual liquid within the bowl greater than the cereal itself, though I am pondering I will attain for this field once more tomorrow. If by some probability we wind up having these items readily available commonly, in addition to some chilly milk, I simply may wind again up on a prolonged cereal kick.
$3.49 for the field. 4 stars from Sonia. Three and a half from me.
Backside line: 7.5 out of 10.
