After some rather pathetically expensive muesli I was looking forward to something new, something that sounded like it would taste good so off to the shops I popped and bought Kellogg’s Crunchy Nut Clusters with Honey and Nuts, sounded good, Crunchy Nut Cornflakes are essentially corn flakes with honey and nuts so for clusters of them to be put with more honey and nuts sounded like a taste explosion. I enjoyed my first bowl and then read the box, in hindsight it was the wrong way round to do things, on the box, the main ingredient was…….oats. This was the first of what was to be 5 bowls in 5 days. This cereal was the first cereal that made my wife ask me to stop eating them, she really didn’t want me to complete the box, I really was unwell with these, my body was unstable and my body movements were agonising. I actually didn’t mind the taste of them, the oats (although the primary ingredient) were hidden well by the honey and nuts. It was like I was a poorly cat and they had slipped the oats in with other food to trick me in to eating them. The week felt long and tough, I couldn’t eat them twice a day because they were making me really ill and I will have to be really careful with similar cereals too. It has also been incredibly hot this week, talks a of ‘heat wave’ in England are a rare thing so what better way to celebrate than run the skittles stall at the local church fete for the day, outside, in the wave of heat, this I did, this I found particularly warm and on the day I was going to risk a 2nd bowl simply didn’t feel like eating. In a honey and nut-shell, these taste just about average but are terrible for ones body.
Here is my review for Kellogg’s Crunchy Nut Clusters with Honey and Nut:
Cereal Cost: £2.69
Real Servings per Box: 5
Cost per Serving: 53.8p
Pros – Actually tastes quite nice.
Cons – Yet more for the avoid if you have IBS club. Also may make your wife want to ban cereal consumption.
