Started off Day 1 of the weight-loss challenge with a delicious breakfast. NOT!
The problem with this cereal is the "strawberries". I guess that's what they're calling them. From the first spoonful, I realized that they tasted eerily familiar to me. They very much reminded me of those laboratory-orchestrated "marshmallows" from the cereal LUCKY CHARMS. My old childhood nemesis, I've always hated Lucky Charms. And much like the "pink hearts-yellow moons-orange stars-green clovers-and-blue diamonds" -shaped puffs of air that is LUCKY CHARMS.....these so-called "strawberries" are not so much magically delicious either. Resembling tiny tongues (ewww!) floating amongst "crunchy rice & wheat flakes", these oddly-shaped things refuse to be reconstituted with milk.
While the Great Value Strawberry Awake cereal IS considerably cheaper than its Special K counterpart, it IN NO WAY compares in TASTE. (sorry Walmart) Sometimes a value is just a value. Doesn't mean it's great.
