We are a family that loves cereal. But I’m a mom that hates all the sugar and preservatives in cereal. Van’s Simply Delicious has come out with a solution. Cocoa Sensation and Blissfully Berry Gluten Free cereal. Besides being gluten free these cereal are also free of high fructose corn syrup and artificial flavors. So everything you taste is a natural flavor derived from nature.
My favorite part of the cereals is what IS in them. They are full of gluten free oats, brown rice, millet, quinoa and amaranth. All these are a great source of fiber and nutrients. And one serving is just 110 calories! You will be starting your morning out with a filling low call option. Now I’m sure you are curious about the taste. That was a big question for me. But they taste really good! Sometimes with healthier food options the taste seems to be what is sacrificed. But not with these. The cocoa sensation really did taste like chocolate.
I used traditional, 2% milk in my bowl of cocoa sensation and I thought it was tasty. Definitely a cereal my daughter would eat and that I would feel good giving to her. Another suggestion is using Almond Milk for those that are lactose intolerant. Or you can toss a handful in a baggie and eat it on the run. Sure to be a hit with the toddler crowd! And if you need a little chocolate or berry crunch in your yogurt add it as a topping. It helps give a little sweetness and crunch to your parfait.
I found the Van’s Simply Delicious Cocoa Sensation and Blissfully Berry to be a yummy alternative to the sugary cereals out there. My daughter enjoyed them and so did I. She enjoyed the taste and crunch of the cereal. I enjoyed knowing I was giving her something without all the high fructose corn syrup, is gluten free and full of fiber.
