I received a box of Kellogg’s Crunchy Nut Golden Honey Nut cereal from BzzAgent to review. I admit I was intrigued because I go through phases with cereals – there are staples that I always buy once the box is emptied and then there are other times where I am looking for something new to jazz up my cereal bowl (or even my yogurt cup). I admit I do not eat cereal all the time, but I enjoy having it as a back-up or even having phases where cereal is a meal for a week or two.
I admit when I saw the name “Crunchy Nut” and “Golden Honey Nut” I instantly thought – unhealthy. I chalked it up to possibly being a sugar ridden cereal that was going to be more calories than necessary. I admit when I saw the caloric states I was quite surprised. 120 calories for a ¾ cup serving? Not bad at all! I converted the stats into Weight Watchers Points Plus values and it was 3 PPV’s per serving. Certainly not bad! One of my staple cereals is higher in calories and WW PPV’s than that.
I’ve eaten the cereal by itself (with no milk) and I’ve also enjoyed it with almond milk and a sliced banana. Both ways are equally delicious. Without milk it’ll give you that subtle sweet-crunchy that you may be looking for. With milk it kind of reminds me of a less sweet frosted flakes that are crunchier and that don’t sog out so quickly.
I find eating this with a banana and almond milk it is decently filling. I can eat it for breakfast (or as another meal during the day) and I’m not poking around the kitchen seeing what else there may be to eat.
Overall I can say I’ve really been enjoying this cereal and have been eating it at least once a day since receiving. Two thumbs up, Kelloggs!
Have you tried any of the Kellogg’s Crunchy Nut cereals?
