Kellogg's Crunchy Nut Cornflakes
Advantages: Tasty cereal with extra Folic acid.
Disadvantages: Contains nuts
I always call this product Crunchy nut cornflakes just as the Dooyoo heading but actually they are called Crunchy Nut - no cornflakes!
Bright yellow/orange colour with the name Kellogg's in red and large black letters saying Crunchy Nut. There is a stripy bowl full of the flakes and the milk is spilling out and a few nuts at the bottom of the box and some honey dribbled off the wooden honey twirler.
On the back of the box is some advertising about other products by Kellogg's and a large piece of information on the ingredients, nutritional information, guidelines and Kellogg's guarantee.
Maize is the largest ingredient and then brown sugar. There are 7% peanuts and 2% of honey. Other ingredients include barley malt flavouring, salt, niacin, iron and vitamins. There is a warning that it does include Peanuts and Barley in case of allergies.
I have weighed my bowl of crunchy nut so I know what 30grams looks like, it isn't a great big bowl, and so if you are calorie counting, it is worth weighing to get the right amount! A 30 gram bowl with 125ml of semi skimmed milk is 180cals, there is 6grams of protein and 3.5grams of fat, 0.4grams of salt. The vitamins may be important to people and some are better than others, Thiamin is 29% of RDA (recommended daily allowance), Riboflavin 44%, Niacin 26%, Vitamin B629%, Folic Acid 54%, Vitamin B12 76% and Iron 17%.
It is important for people on Folic Acid tablets, so they don't take too much and a badge on the top states that they contain extra Folic acid.
You can't get too much folic acid from foods that naturally contain it. But unless your doctor tells you otherwise, do not consume more than 1,000 mcg of folic acid a day. Consuming too much folic acid can hide signs that a person is lacking vitamin B12, which can cause nerve damage.
They are suitable for vegetarians, and the best before date on my packet is March 2013, so a good shelf life.
Taste and Smell
Once you've opened the sealed packet inside the box the lovely sweet honey smell wafts up to stimulate your sense of smell. The flakes are still quite crisp even when in a bowl of milk and certainly don't need extra sugar as they are quite sweet and nutty. I personally prefer these to Cornflakes, they are full of flavour, providing you like honey and nuts.
Currently half price in Tesco a 375 gram box costs just £1, instead of £1.99. The 750gram box costs £2.49 and is better value than the 1Kg box.
Definitely. A bowl of Crunchy nut and milk and some fresh fruit on top fills me up for breakfast and is better for me than toast and marmalade. I'm too old for having children but it is good for women who want to get pregnant and need extra Folic acid.
The box can be recycled but not everywhere can recycle the inner bag yet.
Summary: Breakfast cereal.
