Chocolatey Strawberry Cereal

Words can’t really explain how disappointed I am in this cereal. I like chocolate. I like strawberries. I love cereal. How could this go wrong? But wrong it went. I even bought it on the recommendation of a friends, but I just couldn’t  dig it.

Things are weird even when you first pour the cereal into the bowl. You get some regular flakes, some dehydrated strawberry pieces and chocolate. They’re literally small pieces of chocolate that remind me of tiny bars of gold. It’s kind of weird to have them in your cereal. They don’t melt or change shape, and there’s not so many of them. The product image shows  much larger pieces of chocolate and many more of them. There’s not enough balance between chocolate and strawberry. While they’re sweet and tasty, it’s just an odd texture.

The same goes for the berries, which you have to let soak in melt to soften up. Either way, they’re incredibly tart. It makes the overall flavor too bitter. I’ve been cutting this by mixing it with Chocolate Frosted flakes, but I’ll be out soon, and then the Special K just won’t cut it. I suppose that I like something sweeter.

The result, though, is a serving that’s barely over 100 calories. It’s certainly more healthy than the options, but it’s not personally worth the sacrifice to me.
