About Me

Welcome to my blog - my ramblings about trying to find healthy, affordable gluten free food in St. John's, NL.
Despite being gluten free, I love to try new products and am always interested to hear about new places to eat.
I try to help the environment and purchase organic products where possible.

Enjoy :)

Kashi Indigo Morning Gluten Free Cereal Review

Kashi has 2 new gluten free (and organic) cereals now available in Canada :) Indigo Morning and Simply Maize are available just about anywhere in the city and I've spotted them at Sobeys, Dominion, and Target.

Also, as it is a new product, many places have had them on sale for $3.99 a box the last couple weeks. Regular price is between $4.99 and $5.99.

I was really excited when I spotted these cereal because they are also organic and the ingredient list didn't look too bad. The Indigo Morning has the following ingredients:  Organic whole grain corn, organic dried cane syrup, organic freeze dried blackberries, organic freeze dried blueberries, salt, organic molasses, natural flavour and organic vanilla extract. Each 3/4 cup serving comes in at 100 calories, 6 grams of sugar, and 2 grams of fiber.

The cereal has nice medium sized flakes of corn that are crunchier than a regular flake and the texture was like a really thick frosted flake that is air popped. The dried berries were a nice addition and tasted wonderful! With some help from the other family members, we decided it tasted very similar to Captain Crunch. I thought the cereal tasted great on its own, and of course with the milk (dairy or non dairy) of your choice! I let them soak a little, and they did soften up, but not to the mushy point which was nice!

Overall, I'd buy these again. The corn is whole grain, there is no Bht in the packaging, and it was a tasty treat!

I will update when I have tried the Simply Maize box!
