Dorset Cereals Really Nutty Muesli
Advantages: Packed with lovely ingredients
Disadvantages: A little pricey.
I don't know if it's just because we live in Dorset but we absolutely love Dorset cereals in our house.
This review is for the Simply Nutty Muesli but there are many other equally good products in this range, all well worth trying. They also seem to come out with new products on a fairly regular basis (muesli, granola, porridge, bars etc...)
We do get through an awful lot of cereals in our house. My 18 year old son seems to nibble on them all day long and thanks to him my kitchen floor seems to be permanently strewn with bits of cereals where he has been eating them straight out of the packet. Always helpful he usually tries to kick them under the fridge before I notice!
We also try to go for somewhat "healthy" cereals and try to avoid the over sweet variety.
The Simply Nutty Muesli is a favourite of ours because (and I apologize for stating the obvious!) it is really quite rich in nuts. It contains both Brazil nuts and whole almonds and even when my son has eaten all the nuts, I can still find 1 or 2 popping up in my breakfast bowl. I wish Dorset Cereals added even more nuts though and I would welcome the addition of a few hazelnuts or even a cashew nut or two.
Another huge selling point for me is that it contains no raisins. I absolutely hate raisins and it is a relief not to have to pick them out of my breakfast, especially when I'm not very awake yet. Of course you might well disagree with me on this one but other more raisin-friendly members of my family assure me they do not miss the raisins thanks to the generous amount of dates ( 22%!).
Other ingredients are barley flakes, malted oats, wheat flakes, oat flakes and sunflower seeds. Of course there is no added sugar or preservatives so I would say this is a healthy breakfast cereal.
It tastes great on its own but I often have mine sprinkled on top of Weetabix and that's one of my favourite breakfasts. My husband has it with yoghurt and even sprinkles it over ice-cream (not for breakfast though!)
I do think it is a much nicer alternative than Alpen. It is far less "dusty" than Alpen and the different varieties are far more exciting.
A 750 gr is about £2.87 if you're lucky but sometimes they are over £3.00.
This is a really good quality product so I do believe it's worth it, shame we eat it so quickly!
Summary: A raelly healthy and tasty breakfast.
