Quaker Oat Granola
Advantages: Tasty, healthy.
Disadvantages: A bit too crunchy for some.
Quaker Oat Granola is a tasty breakfast cereal which comes in a 600g box,
I think this is the only size it comes in as I have never seen it in a smaller or larger size before.
The box looks quite small for the weight and compared to say a box of cornflakes its about half the size but that's because the cereal itself is so compact and you do get your moneys worth.
The cereal itself consists of oat clusters and raisins and although there doesn't seem to be a lot of raisins you can taste them with every mouthful maybe because they are "jumbo Chilean raisins"' lol, anyway
the oat clusters are random sizes and can be pea size and smaller to about grape size and the only downside for me is that some of the larger oat clusters can be rock hard!
When I first tried this cereal I thought it was delicious but I nearly broke one of my back teeth too! but I still buy it because I really do like the taste and it fills me up and stops me snacking, but now when I'm having the odd bowl I leave it sitting and let the milk soak in and soften the harder bits
I use skimmed milk and I suppose which milk you use affects the taste but it tastes delicious to me, there's no need to add sugar as the raisins and the honey which binds the oat clusters adds enough sweetness but without it being too sweet,
It tastes lovely with ice cold milk or with warm milk, either way tastes good, its even nice to snack on straight from the box but beware of those jaw breakers and for this reason I wouldn't recommend it for really young children or for anyone with dental problems
I think this is a good cereal to start the day off, I enjoy most things made with oats as I know they are healthy and have a lot of benefits and this oaty cereal fills me up for longer and tastes healthy too.
This is an easy and delicious way of getting the goodness of oats with each 50g serving (without milk) containing only 205 calories and has...............
No added salt and no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives but may contain traces of nuts.
Quaker Oats Granola can be bought in most food shops for around £1.73 but Tesco have it on offer at the moment @ 2 for £3.00 valid from 17/09/2008 until 14/10/2008.
Quaker Oats have been milling oats since 1899 and their mill in Cupar, Scotland uses electricity from renewable energy sources.
Thank you for reading.............: )
Summary: A tasty healthy cereal and good value for money.
