My newest cereal is another version of Kellogg’s Krave cereal. This time Krave Chocolate Hazelnut. Little ricey parcels encasing a joyful dollop of what is essentially Nutella Chocolate spread, something of which I am currently very familiar with because at work we have no glasses for drinking cold drinks from, so we are buying jar and jars of Nutella and cleaning them out after and using them as glasses, they work surprisingly well, as does this cereal. They have given me a real break from wheat and for that I am eternally grateful. The cereal itself is very crunchy and I had mine in milk for quite a while this morning as I was eating them slowly due to a mixture of tiredness and admiration of a rug we bought in Ikea yesterday with big buttons on. If it wouldn’t count as being terribly wasteful I would try smashing some up and speading them on toast but my quest will not allow that. They have so far made me manly, very manly as today I put up a shelf (admittedly to replace the one that fell dramatically in the night a few weeks back obliterating toys, books and a ukulele in my daughters room) the shelf looks good and feels sturdy…..so far. Lets hope all this positivity continues as tomorrow at work I have to start dealing with the French. Ou la la.
The convenience of cereal as a meal is one of it’s best features and on a day like today was perfect. Monday is always the busiest day of the week and today we were 2 staff down, coupled with that the whole network suddenly went down and I was the only one who might have known how to fix it, luckily I did. Heroic I know. That meant that after a bowl of Krave for breakfast I soon followed it up with another for lunch, it has been a while since I had 3 bowls of cereal in one day, mainly because of having heavily wheat based cereals so I seized the opportunity today and had a 3rd bowl for dinner before football. I was hoping it would give me burst upon burst of energy, which it did for 5 minutes of the game. After that I was walking round clutching my abdomen, I was getting really tight clenching pain in my middle, I have no idea what the pain was but I thought I was going to collapse at one point, that or vomit. When I got home I made something savoury, I attempted a spanish omelette which turned in to a eggy version of an Eton Mess and that seems to have sorted it. I’ll have to see how it progresses overnight.
Sadly the 3rd bowl today and 4th overall for Krave Chocolate Hazelnut saw the end of the box, despite Kellogg’s claims of 12 servings, here is my brief review of Krave Chocolate Hazelnut:
Cereal Cost: £2.79
Real Servings per Box: 4
Cost per Serving: 69.7p
Pros – Tastes great, could easily eat a whole box in a day and nearly did.
Cons – Cramping pains and outrageous lies about the amount of servings in the box.
