The Cereal Quest: Days 252 – 257 Kellogg’s Raisin Wheats

I had completely expected Kellogg’s Raisin Wheats to be very similar to last weeks Orchard Fruits, a smooth transition I had thought.  I was wrong.  These are not manufactured by the same company and as such the wheaty outer was different.  The Kellogg’s Raisin Wheats were stronger on the outside and the filling of course was different.  For those who have had gerbils as pets they may be familiar with the look of gerbil poop.  This is what the filling of Kellogg’s Raisin Wheats is like, it just looks like a parcel of poop, however taste wise they are excellent.  After the first day I was a bit down-heartened about the taste but after reading up suggestions I sprinkled a very thin layer of sugar on them and it absolutely transformed them, they were a much better cereal for the addition of a bit of sugar.  Like all heavily wheaty cereals they cause certain IBS issues, especially with raisins adding extra roughage but overall they were a good.  Good quantity of filling, strong against milk, thats two boxes ticked.
