Grain Berry Bran Flakes®
|how I like to enjoy them|
I'd actually seen it in the cereal aisle a couple of times before Paul decided to go and buy it for us because he found it on sale one week. I was afraid it might taste like cardboard like so many other bran flakes tend to, but these are actually quite flavorful in a rich and hearty sort of way. They even have a delicate sweetness and just enough crunch.
The box boasts that it is full of antioxidants, having "oz. for oz. more antioxidants than blueberries, pomegranate juice, or red wine." As most of us know, antioxidants are very beneficial in a number of ways, including keeping the heart healthy, fighting cancer-causing free radicals and supporting the immune system. What makes this cereal particularly different from other bran flakes is that the flakes are made from grain berries, a plant which contains all the extra antioxidizing benefits. Read more about this incredible plant here.
The ultimate taste-test came when I offered Lily a bite. She didn't seem to be too thrilled at first, but then asked for seconds! She especially liked them when I added fresh berries to the mix. We enjoyed them with my favorite new milk, Blue Diamond Almond-Coconut Milk® (another review I should do!).
Since getting hooked on the Bran Flakes, we have also enjoyed the Grain Berry Toasted Oats® and Honey Nut® , respectively.
Some of the vitamins and minerals the Bran Flakes contain:
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin B6
Pick up a box today! They were recently on sale 2 for $5 at Shop Rite, so they can be found there for sure.
