A cereal killer

Growing up we really did not do big fancy breakfasts very often. Mostly we had lots and lots of cereal for breakfast. I still prefer cereal as I am not much of a morning person. I like something that I can shove into my face with minimal forethought. I only ever make big breakfasts on nights that we have breakfast for dinner.

I have become a bit of a connoisseur of cereal so I was excited to review a new cereal called Fiber One Raisin Bran Clusters. I have been having a hard time coming up with the motivation to write this because the cereal was simply meh. The raisins were small, the oat clusters were minuscule and the flakes were overly sweet. It was edible and did not taste horrible, but it also did not taste good enough that I would rave about it. It does have more fiber I will give it that, but if you are looking to up your fiber intake there are other, more tasty, ways to do it.

A really fantastic raisin bran that I adore is Raisin Bran Crunch. This cereal has it all: big fat raisins, great tasting flakes and awesome oat clusters. If you are looking for a great raisin bran with extra fiber eat this and add some Fibersure.

My vote goes for Raisen Nut Bran. But I still get more fiber in my morning oatmeal. :-)

That's the cereal M has been begging me to find! (the fiber one one). His mom served it to him a few weeks ago and he loved it! Thank you!

It sounded rather meh to me too...but I'm not really a cereal person.

My husband loves to eat Raisin Bran, though he's never tried the crunch one. I call them shit flakes hehe. I eat cheerios but they are starting to bore me senseless.

When I was a child I was nicknamed 'freckly porridge' because I hated my freckles and loved my porridge! (oats)Happy Independence Day from Ireland!

Just got my review of Fiber One Raisin Bran Clusters done. I also give it a "meh" rating.

I'm a cereal chick, too. Fancy breakfast only on Sundays, and only because I love Hubbers and he's into bacon and eggs.

Haven't tried this stuff, will have too!
