I mentioned in another review that I did some grocery shopping the other day and, because I needed breakfast cereal, purchased three boxes for me, my wife and my daughters.
One of the boxes of cereal purchased was Our Family Oats & More Cereal. Much like the other variety I purchased from this brand, my interest in this cereal was based almost solely on price (it was about $1 less than the other brands). But, at the same time, it also looked very appetizing.
Even though I purchased this cereal for my wife (it even came in a pink box), I did decide to give some of it a try this morning. And, it turned out to be pretty decent.
When I purchased this cereal, I noticed it had things in it like oat clusters and strawberries (which I honestly didn’t notice too much of). But, for some reason, I was thinking this cereal would be one of those healthy cereals that don’t offer much in terms of taste. And, believe me, I have had way too many of those cereals; most of which eventually ended up in the garbage simply because I found excuses not to eat them.
I discovered I was wrong about that before I even poured a bowl of it. Out of curiosity, I took a couple of the flakes out of the box and tried them only to discover they had a sweet taste to them. Yet, unlike many other cereals, they weren’t covered in a heavy layer of sugar; it was more of a natural sweetness. In other words, it is a cereal that I would have no problem purchasing just because I enjoyed the taste. The fact it is probably better for me than some of the sugary cereals I would normally purchase is a bonus.
Another thing I liked about this cereal was it was very filling. Normally, I need to either eat two bowls of cereal or I need to find something else to eat with it or later in the day. I only had the one bowl of this cereal and it kept me full all morning. I didn’t even need to have my mid-morning snack.
If you are looking for a more adult breakfast cereal that offers both health benefits and a great taste, I would recommend this one; especially if you are looking for a brand that is also very affordable.
