Product Review: Nature’s Path Cereals

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.  😉

  1. I like the sound of the Mesa Sunrise cereal. It sounds like something a little different from the typical g-free cereals. The Whole O’s sound good too. We’ve tried the Panda Puffs before, but I’m up to trying them again!

  2. My 5-yr old son and I both went g-free about a month ago, and we eat the Corn Flakes every morning. I would love to try some of the EnviroKidz cereals, like the Leapin’ Lemurs or the Gorilla Crunch (which I’ve heard is quite good). Thanks for the review!

  3. i would love to try the animal cookies – I’ve never been able to find them! I love Nature’s path – I found out I had celiac about a year ago and Nature’s Path has the best g-free prodcuts I’ve found 🙂

    • I have only found the animal cookies at 1 store so far. I agree about Nature’s Path…..awesome stuff!!

      Thanks for entering!
