I had a few extra minutes before work yesterday so I ended up stopping off at one of our grocery stores to stock up on some things I knew we were running low on. One of those things was breakfast cereal.
When I went to that particular aisle, I was looking for three boxes; one for my daughter, one for my wife and one for me. The one I ended up buying for me was a box of Our Family Blueberry Swirl Bites Cereal that I happened to notice while grabbing a box of a different brand.
There were two things that attracted me to this cereal. The first was the price, which was about $1 less than the better known cereals that were on the shelf. But, the other thing that attracted me was the fact this cereal looked like something I had never tried before. The Our Family brand usually tries to rip off some of the more popular brands when it comes to the products they offer. But, I couldn’t think of a single cereal that compared to something like this so I was definitely interested.
Well, actually, to be fair, the cereal did remind me a bit of Cinnamon Toast Crunch. It looked the same and there was a lot of cinnamon and sugar on it. The only difference was this cereal had little bits of blueberry in it.
When I first tried this cereal (I opened the box and swiped a couple pieces from it), I honestly didn’t notice much of a difference between it and the Cinnamon Toast Crunch. However, when I ate more than a piece or two at a time (in other words, a spoonful); I could taste the blueberry too. At first, I didn’t really know what to think of it because blueberry and cinnamon make a somewhat strange combination. But, after a few bites, I came to the conclusion it wasn’t too bad. If nothing else, it offered something a bit different than the other cereals we usually buy.
After trying the Our Family Blueberry Swirl Bites Cereal, I do think it is a product I would purchase again. In fact, I would recommend it to just about anyone; whether you are buying it for yourself or are looking for a sweeter tasting cereal your kids will enjoy. The fact you can save some money over the other guys and get a great tasting product is more than enough incentive.
