“ Brand: Aldi / Type: Cereal „
I love cereal and usually have a real hearty breakfast which my Mum gets really cross about. I can easily get through half a box of cereal in one sitting before I head off to the gym so she occasionally dumps cheaper brands on me lol.
My Mum has recently started to do a little of what she calls top up shopping in Aldi. She's still doing the most of our shopping in Asda or Sainsbury's but has tried to economise a little by getting some bits and bobs from there. She knows that I love this type of cereal the best and voilà it arrived to be tested out by me!
500g Brown box with a picture of the cereal on the front and I'm told it is Harvest Moon Maple & Pecan Crunch 'Crunchy oat and rice crisp clusters with pecan nut pieces and maple syrup' and I'm told it is a good source of fibre and contains no added salt, there is an at a glance nutritional chart on there and the size is stated (as I've listed already). Other information on the box tells me a little about the cereal, a full nutritional chart is shown as are ingredients and allergy advice, I'm told it is suitable for Vegetarians, I'm given storage instructions (can last 2months from opening if sealed correctly!) and contact details for Aldi are given (Harvest Moon produce this exclusively for Aldi stores). The box is nice enough and it doesn't scream cheap and the cereal itself comes in a white plastic bag which is easy to open.
Light golden clusters is what I got met with when I poured some into a bowl. Really textured and rough looking with some long, whole pecan nuts. I tipped on some milk and got into eating them. Now on the whole this is a nice breakfast...providing you have strong teeth!
The clusters are really chunky and of all different shapes and sizes. They absorb some milk but not much and really do remain very crunchy indeed. They have a natural sugary taste to them which is really nice and are made up from oats, rice crisp and you can really taste that. They also possess a slight malty taste to them that isn't over powering. They don't scum the milk and I was really impressed with the pecans as they really did taste of what they are!
All In All:
A hard breakfast to eat but it is packed with natural flavours. You can taste all of the ingredients that are used in this and it is a nice and filling and what's more it's an economical breakfast. I like this and will look forward to consuming my next hearty bowl lol.
Contains: Pecan nuts, oats, wheat, barley and gluten.
