Boxes of cereal
I don’t know why I don’t spend more time in the breakfast cereal aisle of my local supermarkets. Every time I saunter down there, I seem to find a new-to-me cereal.
Just like this.
I’m not sure how long these have been around, but I was pleasantly surprised to find two varieties of the Sainsbury’s own label Balance cereal this week.
I don’t know what exactly is balanced about it but it is a handy and inexpensive cereal to have on hand in the kitchen. The fruit content doesn’t exactly deliver a knockout punch when it comes to taste, so I have found myself adding extra ingredients to make this a bit more special.
What do you think? Have you tried Balance by Sainsbury’s?
love that cereal! But had to stop buying it-because I was getting through a box a day/two days tops!!
I usually grab the plain Balance (as it’s a bigger box / cheaper) & add bits to it. Sainsbury’s do several nice cereals, though it’s a shame their Malties (like Shreddies) are no longer vegan.
Oh no! Are you sure the Malties are no longer vegan? The latest Sainsbury’s vegan product list says they’re okay: http://www.sainsburys-live-well-for-less.co.uk/recipes-inspiration/healthier-eating/health-advice/product-guidance-lists/ (scroll to the bottom)
Do you have some inside information?
Ooh, are they on the list again? They’d stopped labelling the boxes as vegan a while ago & I must admit I can’t recall the last time I checked to see if they were still the same. Sainsbury’s are pretty good: if it says on the box they are vegan, then they will be 😉
