“ Type: Oats „
This is I think the newer version of the original which is the almond one and I think their is a raisin version too. This cereal is made by Nestle and has been around for about a year now I think. I quite often see the adverts for this where the dad tries to persuade his son that it tastes horribly and he wouldn't want to eat it thereby ensuring he gets the whole box to himself. Basically this cereal is toasted oat and wheat flakes with oat pices which is all covered with honey.
The box is 400g. I have yet to see any big sizes yet. It is mostly white with the title written in huge letters on the front. Then underneath the title there are loads of words like 'crispy', 'delcicious' and so on as if they had a brainstorming session and just decided to put any words associate with the product on the box. It's a technique I quite like actually. They have also done all the writing on the front of the bx in yellows and browns probably to emphasise and reinforce the honey and oat aspect. There is also the traditional picture of cereal with milk splashing around on the front. A 30g portion contains 114 calories but once you add milk it'll probably go up a bit. The back of the pack reminds us that Nestle make all theeir cereals with wholegrain and there are a number of pictures showing the other cereals that they produce. Also, on the side of the box there is a picture of some Oats and more cereal bars that are coming soon apparently. I don't why every cereal has to be made into a bar. I find it an odd concept.
The flakes themselves vary in size. They are light brown in colour, a bit paler than say bran flakes and you can also see the honey on them as they have a glaze coating. The pices of oat are really tiny and mostly they are just stuck on to the flakes. From time to time you do see an oat cluster but there aren't as many as I would have expected or would have liked. When you do find one they are nice though and taste very authentic. The flakes themselves I was not so keen on as the honey coating I just found to be too much, too sickly sweet. I would have preferred it had they use a little less.
So overall it's a nice cereal. It tries to be healty by having oats and wheat but the over generosity with the honey detracts from that and I just find it a bit to sweet for me to be eating first thing. I would eat it again but prefer Clusters, also made by Nestlé, which I find similar but not so sweet.
Waw, it was so cold the other week and there still is in the very morning, so, the first think that I do when I get to the office is to prepare in just 2-3 minutes my favorite oats, Nestle Honey Oats and More. I never thought I could have cereals as breakfast or cereals as a healthy and tasty meal. Its easy to prepare it, you put it in a bowl for maximum 3 minutes, pour 100ml milk and give it the heating in the microwave. To be honest with you, there is enough honey inside the packet, so it would not be necessary to add anything, but I do prefer it with another spoon. If your honey is natural, you could do the same, is healthy and yammy.
Milk, honey and oats together is your recipe to prevent the cold this winter, to keep the viruses and the flu away, so, instead to have a vaccination in the beginning of November, keep yourself warm with a big, healthy, tasty portion of oats and honey.
The price is £2.50 and you can have it for about 2 weeks if you serve it every day in a medium portion and not like me in a double one:)
Taste it! You'll be content!
It's always said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day because you're breaking your fast after sleeping and need to fuel your body to start up again. For that reason, it's important to choose something that you actually want to wake up to and look forward to eating, whilst making a healthy choice. I came across Honey, Oats & More and thought they'd be a good choice.
Nestle has recently expanded its range of breakfast cereals to bring a bit more flavour & texture whilst keeping it healthy. Nestle are a very popular brand and so I knew that with their nutritional knowledge I'd be getting a quality product. I gave these a try when they were on offer in Tesco as otherwise they're rather expencive when you compare them to similar cheaper brands that give you more servings for your money. For £2.42 you get a 375g box. The suggested serving size is 30g, but typically when I fill my small bowl it's more like 40-45g. With that in mind, the box wont last for too long, especially if it's eaten as a daily breakfast cereal. Per 30g the cereal contains 114 calories, 1.8g fibre and 1.6g fat (not including milk). They're also packed with vitamins and minerals so it's a great addition to a healthy diet. The issue of sugar has been debated more recently because it counteracts the health benefits in cereals, and these contain 10% of your RDA of sugar. I tend to ignore this though, because I was a huge fan of this cereal when I first started eating it.
They're described as 'crispy delicious flakes' and 'baby oats' that are 'drizzled in honey'. They're brown in colour and you can see the light coloured oats that are stuck to the flakes. The flakes themselves are quite crisp and fairly thick as they've got a thin coating of honey. I don't tend to use much milk on my cereal anyway, so they're very crunchy and satisfying. The taste is fairly sweet and they've got a strong flavour so they're far from your boring breakfast flakes. I loved these when I first started eating them, I couldn't get enough of them. I'm not sure if it's because I'd eaten so many of them, or because they introduced more 'clusters' (lots of little balls of oats which are hard and I used to pick as many out before eating as possible), but I've gone off these slightly. They tend to make me feel slightly sick these days, so perhaps a smaller portion would be good as they've got enough flavour and a smaller amount would still be equally satisfying.
Overall, you wont know if you like them until you try them but I'd definitely recommend you give them a go if you're looking for a crunchy, healthy and tasty cereal for breakfast/lunch/snack.
