Joy of joys, another variety of Jordans Country Crisp, the cereal that was the first in the quest to cause me to collapse soon after I had tried its raspberry variety. I think it is almost justifiable to enter in to this new cereal on tip toes. I studied the box in detail, not to take in any information but to procrastinate and delay the tasting of another oat based cereal on the cereal quest. I have learnt that oats will inevitably be my downfall and I put my body on the line each time I consume them (see Honey Monster Choco Wows for evidence) so I tried to shake off my fear and tucked in:
The box has lovely autumnal colours, perfect for this time of year…….autumn. It is Jordans ‘Super’ Berry Crunch, I was trying to get myself excited about how ‘super’ these berries might turn out to be, I looked through the ingredients list, cranberries (not a fan but will eat them if forced, and I am being forced) and blackcurrants, this was I think the first cereal to introduce blackcurrants and I was excited, I love the twang you get with blackcurrants, I was excited, this might well turn out to be ‘super’, or as super as an oat based cereal could be. I sat down to eat and couldn’t believe what was happening, I felt like a new man, a man that was enjoying a clustery oat based cereal, the cousin of the cereal that first took me off my feet, I had changed, I felt great, I was enjoying a healthy cereal, I was proud of myself, I had turned a corner. But pride comes before a fall, luckily this time not one from 6ft into a bathroom sink, but a fall nonetheless. My bowels hit the roof (not literal), my insides started strangling me (not literally) and my face resembled that of a wasps, that had been hit with an electrically charged plastic tennis racket shaped killing device (literal). This sadly was how this cereal progressed, by the end of the box I was frustrated, I wanted to like the cereal but unfortunately its key ingredient wasn’t interested in forging a friendship with me.
Here are my vital statistics for my Jordans Super Berry Country Crisp Review:
Cereal Cost: £2.69
Real Servings per Box: 7

Pros – The blackcurrants really bring something new to the fore, they are a great inclusion.
Cons – IBS sufferers beware, these WILL hurt you.
