Flax Plus, Less Flavour

Bran! Flax! Cardboard!Hey! It’s a cereal review!

Well I gave this breakfast cereal a try a little while back and no matter what I did to it, the result was disgusting. I added milk (duh!), strawberries, mango, and raisins on separate occasions. I even added a blueberry like on the box. I was thinking, “maybe this cereal is meant for blueberries only?” But no. No matter what I tried, the result was the same: bland, healthy, soggy-too-fast cereal.

Nature’s Path Organic Flax Plus Multibran Cereal is totally good for you. The ingredients are all-natural, non-chemical, and without pesticides. It’s just that the texture and taste is so…just so not there. I gave it a bunch of chances but only made it through half the box before giving up on it.

I really love cereal for breakfast in the morning. On some days, just the thought of a simple bowl of Special K could be enough to get me out of bed. The thought of Flax Plus however, makes me want to dump the contents of the box onto the balcony for my resident pigeons. I feel they deserve a treat for so lovingly repainting my balcony with their excrement. Hey you guys missed a spot!

I’m half tempted to set up a taste test: I’ll fill one bowl with Organic Flax Plus, and then fill a second bowl with shreds from the box itself.

“Can you tell the difference?”
“I can’t tell the difference.”

Well as they say, eating healthy doesn’t have to taste bad, but like I say, sometimes it does. For your information, here are the ingredients:

Organic Whole Wheat Flour, Organic Wheat Bran, Granulated Organic Sugar Cane Juice, Organic Flaxseed, Organic Oat Bran, Organic Barley Malt Extract, Rice Extract, Sea Salt, Tocopherols (Natural Vitamin E) Added to Enhance Freshness.
