A few weeks back I was contacted by Nature’s Path and asked if I would like to sample some of their gluten-free cereals/products. Of course I said that I was interested. I love cereal and feel like I could eat it for every single meal. Not only that, but Nature’s Path is going to be giving away a fun gift to one of my lucky readers!! How fun is that? Details on how to enter & win will be explained below.
My package arrived on my doorstep & I was eager to dive right in. I had 4 different cereals to sample:
- Nature’s Path Honey’d Cornflakes
- EnviroKidz Peanut Butter Panda Puffs
- Nature’s Path Mesa Sunrise
- Nature’s Path Whole O’s
Normally I like to mix my cereals together, at least 3 different kinds at a time. I have an entire selection of at least 6 cereals at any given time. This doesn’t really make my husband happy, in fact, it may even drive him a little crazy. Anyway, I digress. I took a break from my craziness to get a good taste of these individually. My thoughts are below:
Nature’s Path Honey’d Cornflakes
I really enjoyed these cornflakes. They had a great crisp & light sweetness to them, but nothing over the top. Great alone or mixed with other cereals. Also would be great to cook with. I used them as topping on a hash brown casserole and they worked wonderfully! Another nice thing about this cereal is that there are only 4 ingredients! 2 thumbs up!
EnviroKidz Peanut Butter Panda Puffs
We all know that I am a kid at heart, right? Well, this cereal is great for kids & adults. These little cereal balls, which look a lot like Kix, are bursting with peanut butter flavor. Great alone, or mixed with another cereal or topped with some banana slices. I also loved these topped with Almond Breeze or Greek yogurt. Another great cereal with only 6 ingredients. A much welcomed change from those mainstream cereals with lists longer than Rapunzel’s hair. 2 thumbs up!
Nature’s Path Mesa Sunrise
This is one of my favorite gluten-free cereals. This cereal was recommended to me by a friend who had been diagnosed with Celiac before I was and I was looking for a way to fill my cereal void. I love to eat this with fresh fruit cut up on top. This cereal is a blend of corn, flax, buckwheat, quinoa & amaranth. Nice crunch to the flakes & great texture & flavor. 2 thumbs up!
Nature’s Path Organic Whole O’s
I was so excited when I saw this product on the market! I was never a huge fan of Cheerios, but I did like to eat them occasionally. Now, tell a girl she can’t have something and she wants it even more. I had tried other gluten-free Cheerios in the past and had been very disappointed. This cereal did not disappoint. The Whole O’s were crispy & had a great crunch, but were not overly crunchy like some of the others I had tried. They were the closest thing to Cheerios that I have tried since embarking on the gluten-free diet. And, once again, only 5 ingredients in this cereal. Well done, Nature’s Path! 2 thumbs up!
If you asked me to pick my favorite out of the 4 cereals here, I couldn’t do it. I like them all for different reasons. I like to combine flavors, as I said above, so would eat them all at different times for different reasons. I know, I am weird. ;)
