Kellogg's Natures Pleasure...
I am not usually a Muesli eater or for that matter I am not much of a breakfast eater but seeing as how I caught this on special offer at £1.49p in Somerfield a few weeks back I couldn't resist picking up a box and giving it a try.
There were four different boxes of the Muesli to try from there was the Raspberry & Cherry, The Apple & Blackcurrant, The Almond, Pecan & Raisin or the Almond Pecan & Cashew one which is the one I opted for. The box is only small but heavy and still gives you 500 grams of the product inside.
The packaging is good as there is a small hole in the front of the box allowing you to see the cellophane wrapper inside and through that the pieces of Muesli. It shows the main ingredients with a picture on the front and a coloured band on the bottom telling you which type of the Muesli you have chosen and the colour band changes depending on which flavour you have opted for. The box gives all the relevant information on ingredients, nutritional information and all the other bits that I often don't bother to look at.
The main selling point of this new muesli is that it is baked meaning it gives it a nicer golden crunch and yes I do have to say that the product is very golden in colour and when eating does seem more crunchy than other muesli is that I have previously eaten. The muesli I feel is best eaten with full fat milk as this adds to the whole enjoyable experience of it. There are plenty of the nuts inside although I would have personally liked more cashews as the pecans and almonds seem to appear more than these.
The muesli is very filling and really you only need a small amount in a bowl to satisfy your hunger this means that the box does last a good amount of time. The calorie content of a 45 gram serving is not low and at 188 calories without any milk! But the fat content is of course pretty good and only has 0.9 grams of saturated fat but again if eaten with full fat milk this will go up quite considerably.
All in all I was rather pleased with the muesli and found it both tasty and filling. It is perhaps not something I would but at full price but I think if I saw it again on offer I might be tempted to get it. Not being a big breakfast or muesli eater the box seemed to last me ages but I found it was nice to have it in the cupboard to make a change from all the usual breakfast cereals we have.
I think for a regular muesli eater this would be very nice as it does have a far superior taste to any other muesli I have tried. Therefore I think a 4 out of 5 star rating is on order and a recommendation. A good way to start the day as it fills you up and can keep you going till lunch time.
Many thanks for taking the time to read.
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you.
Its not often I buy muesli, but recently I have been trying to eat more healthy foods, having eaten too much rubbish over the christmas and new year I thought it would be good to actually watch what I eat and its working. I eat more fruit and have cut out all the fatty foods, so when I went too the supermarket to buy my cereal. I spotted this Kelloggs Nature's pleasure raspberry and cherry muesli on offer for £1.25 which I thought was not a bad price to pay.
The muesli is made up of roasted oats, barley flakes, wheat flakes and dried pieces of fruit. As well as raw cane sugar, sunflower oil and honey and seeds, so its packed with calories.
A portion of this muesli has 245 calories per 100g which is quite a lot, but it will provide a slow release of energy though out the morning. After a bowl of this I wasn't hungry again until after one o'clock.
The packaging is pretty basic and its made from recycled cardboard, the box design is also basic, just a white box with cherries and raspberries on the front.
I would have thought that the basic packaging would keep the price low, but the price I paid was half price as they were on offer. To be honest I wouldn't pay full price for the muesli.
The muesli isn't that bad tasting although the fruit pieces are very bitter, I like to eat my muesli with yogurt instead of milk, I think milk always seems to make the muesli taste wishy washy.
I wasn't really impressed with the muesli and won't be buying it again, the packet was small and lasted less than a week, so economically wise its not worth the money. Also the raspberries and cherries were very bitter and dried, which is not really to my taste.
So for recommendations then sorry not from me this time.
Kelloggs Nature's pleasure - Raspberry & Cherry variety is a welcome addition to the Muesli market. Packaged in an attractive cardboard box your first impression is that Kelloggs are trying hard to tap into the organic and 'green' area of marketing.
The box deliberately appears to be made from recycled cardboard as it has a grainy texture and an off white/beige colour and reading the blurb on the side of the box thiis is confirmed:"This carton is made from recycled material" it tells you. The box is simply illustrated with pictures of cherries and raspberries and along with the Kellogs logo you are informed that this is "Deliciously different baked muesli" and that "Nature now comes in Delicious"
To have the word "Delicious" repeated twice just on the front of the box Kelloggs are confident in their claims and as you pour a bowlful you are met with a welcome sight of oats and wheat and large chunks of cherry and raspberry. It does indeed look delicious, but how does it taste?
Well, apologies for repeating myself but it is actually delicious. With cold milk the combination of the savoury grain with the sharpness of the cherry and raspberry really works well together. Chewing the muesli the flavours fill your mouth and you find yourself enjoying every mouthful. Each spoonful seems to have a generous amount of raspberry and cherry so you are not just eating the grains and it really is a well structured, balanced breakfast treat.
Reading the back of the box you are given the story of how the muesli was baked and what ingredients are used in the product and are informed what other flavours and varieties are available.
GDA information is listed as (based on a 45g serving)
So a quite healthy and balanced way to start the day. Allergy sufferers will know that this product is not suitable for them if they cant tolerate Wheat, Oats and Barley, because, after all, its Muesli.
Available from the usual supermarkets, found on the cereal aisle. Quite pricey at £2.50 per box (approx) for a 460g box giving 10 45g servings, but its a premium price for a premium brand.
In my opinion its a nice change from cereal or toast for breakfast and an excellent product from the Kelloggs brand. Ill finish this review with the best word to describe it and what could have saved me 400 odd words and that is "delicious"
Thanks for reading, 4/5 from me cant fault the taste but a bit on the expensive side.
I recently tried Nature's Pleasure by Kelloggs as I wanted to shake up breakfast and thought this would be a tasty alternative to Weetabix!
Kelloggs have made a good muesli in this range which consists of wholegrains, nuts, seeds and fruit then baked with raw cane sugar and honey. I tried the Almond, Pecan and Raisin version and enjoyed the mix of fruit and nuts. The muesli is quite sweet, and although it has good ingredients it is high in sugar - 408 calories for 100g of which 20g of sugar.
In order to carry on enjoying the 'healthy' muesli without having too much sugar, I decided to sprinkle a small helping on top of greek yoghurt. This is a tasty blend of creamy yoghurt with the crunchy muesli, and when I left overnight in the fridge, the muesli soaked up some of the yoghurt and becomes really thick but still has some nutty crunch.
I would buy the muesli again but I do think the amount of sugar is very high and it isn't really a healthy alternative despite the nuts and seeds, I think there are healthier versions out there. But I still enjoyed it and think that everything in moderation is fine!
In the range there is also Cherry and Raspberry, Apple and Blackcurrant and Almond, Pecan and Cashews.
It's taken us a while, but we think our new baked muesli is well worth the wait! We've taken nature's finest muesli ingredients and baked them with honey and raw cane sugar, to reveal a deliciously different taste and texture. The transformation is gorgeously simple but oh, so tasty.
