Something new

Pin It Now!

A few months ago Kellogg's contacted me to see if I was interested in trying out a new muesli that they are launching in April. Always up for trying new things of course I said yes. Then I forgot about it for a while and was completely stumped when I came home from work a good few week's later to be greeted by a huge box waiting for me outside the door of my flat.

I couldn't remember ordering anything on the internet and only when I opened the cardboard box to reveal another wooden box with the Kellogg's logo on it did start making sense. Inside the second box I found a wooden cereal bowl a spoon and four boxes of muesli.

The muesli is called Kellogg's Nature's Pleasure and comes in four flavours. Apple & Blackcurrant, Almond Pecan & Cashew, Almond Pecan & Raisin and Rasperry & Cherry.

Not being the most patient of all people, I tried the first flavour (Apple & Blackcurrant) straight away, and I have to say I liked what I tasted and tasting my way through the other boxes didn't disappoint either. The muesli is nice and crunchy because it is baked, full of grains, oates, nuts and/or dried fruit, it has no weird stuff added and because it is sweetened it does actually taste like a treat, unlike some of the other more 'worthy' type mueslis that don't contain sugar and sometimes taste a bit like cardboard.

I have to say that the Apple and Blackcurrant flavour is definitely my favourite, probably because of the hint of cinnamon and it generally just has a really good balance of flavours, but I wouldn't say no to a bowl of any of them to start the day.

I never really took a picture, so I've borrowed one from Kellog's.

I got sent these too Sylvie. Mine came when I was away in America and had Todd scratching his head wondering what in the heck I had ordered now! I loved the Almond, Pecan and Cashew one, but then again, I am nuts for nuts!!!
