I think I’m having one of those weeks. One where in a battle between funk and fun are in a battle, funk does a TKO to fun. Yep, that’s what’s going on with me. Last week was all business and excitement and this week is just blah with a capital B. Anyone else feelin’ this way?
What helped boost the mood last week was another awesome surprise in the mail! Annelies from Attune Foods informed me that she was sending me new Uncle Sam cereal flavors. And what do you know, a few hours after receiving the email, these were on my doorstep:
That trio of happy is Honey Almond, Strawberry, and Mulitgrain. Cereal, like PB, is a potential fat kid moment so I have to admit, I have hidden 2 of these 3 boxes so that my grubby mitts won’t go at all of ‘em at once! What did I dig into first?
A nice big bowl so I can properly taste test
What can I say? I’m enticed by pretty pink and promises of fruit =) My take? Well, I’ll hit you with a negative first…it’s 240 cals for 3/4 cup. That seems like a lot to a girl who isn’t able to control herself around cereal. However, 3/4 cup of this cereal is FILLING! That’s what I’m talking about! Like the original Uncle Sam, it’s not overly sweet, but packs a nutritious punch and left me pleasantly full. The strawberries held their own in the milk pool and kept their firmness and, of course, flava!
I can’t wait to try the Honey Almond next I’m envisioning some baking opportunities with all 3. Score!
How do you benefit from my windfall of cereal???
You get a box too! And because I was remiss in stating this last time: this is for US bloggies only. I’m sorry Canada blog friends…you know who you are
(Thanks Annelies )
