TJ Faves: Whole Grain Strawberry-Filled Cereal Bites October 29, 2008Posted by smooregasbord in Food, General.
I love Trader Joe’s, but there have been times when I’ve purchased cereal that just isn’t sweet enough. It’s like eating cardboard. Puffins are a good example. While not an exclusive TJ’s product, I bought some cinnamon Puffins a while back. The outside was delicious, but the cinnamon flavor wasn’t baked all the way through leaving a bland taste at the end. Dixie, on the other hand, thought they were delish! Since then, I’ve been wary about some healthier cereal options.
The fact that the shelf for these whole grain strawberry-filled cereal bites seemed to have been ravaged was a good indication that they were probably tasty!! Of course, I bought the last box on the shelf and my observations proved to be true…YUM! It’s like taking strawberry poptarts and miniaturizing them into cereal form. They are so good! On the flip side, they can be a bit too sweet (as evidenced by the high sugar count). If I’m eating a bowl of cereal, then I usually mix this with granola or rice chex. Otherwise, they are perfect to eat right out of the box as a snack. If you’re not a strawberry person, they also offer a chocolate variety.
