No groovy prize inside

No decoder ring or spinning top but still very yummy.


I got a sample of Kay's Naturals Better Balance Honey Almond Protein Cereal in the mail the other day. I tossed it in my bag and when I was hanging out at the beach I munched away. This stuff is great. Sweet and nutty, super crunchy. It looks sort of like Honey Nut Cheerios but tastes soooo much better. Don't be frightened off by the Protein Cereal name... you don't taste protein at all.

I can see myself sprinkling it on some yogurt or with a splash of soy milk when I need my bowl of cereal and milk fix but I especially like having another protein snack/small meal I can toss in my bag when I'm on the go and want a little crunchy treat.

They come in convenient 1 oz. bags which doesn't sound like a lot but really it was a pretty big portion (a lot of little O's in an ounce.) I ate about 1/3 of the bag (dry) and was full. So be sure to bring along a Ziploc or little Tupperware container for the leftovers or you'll have little flipping O's swimming around your purse.

Kay's Naturals Better Balance Honey Almond Protein Cereal
Serving size - 1oz bag

Ingredients: Soy protein isolate, yellow corn flour, rice natural honey, tapioca flour, inulin, pea fiber, evaporated cane juice, partially defated almond meal, canola oil, cinnamon powder, vanilla extract, natural flavorings, baking powder, double-acting leavening agents, salt.

Also in: French Vanilla, Apple Cinnamon flavors (I'm going to try Apple Cinnamon next)

Verdict: I loved them and ordered a case of 12 packets. I heart the little packet size. Big boxes of cereal stink... by the time I want some again it's stale. These are individual portions so I'll get a crispy one when next I have a hankering for some crunch.

Did I just use hankering in a sentence?

My favorite is Apple Cinnamon. Reminds me of Honey Nut Cheerios. These are great in Kroger Carbmaster vanilla yogurt, and also great in Fage or Greekstyle yogurts with one packet splenda.
