Cascadian Farm Organic Clifford Crunch Cereal Review

Cascadian Farms Clifford Crunch CerealWhen I was younger, my parents never bought sweetened cereals for the household. Instead, I ate breakfast staples like Kix, Cheerios, and Crispix (all of which I have since grown to love). However, when we went on vacation, I could indulge in sugar-laden cereals like Froot Loops, Count Chocula, and Lucky Charms. The last of these was my favorite, and I would always eat it the same way - I would eat the grainy cereal first, saving the marshmallows for last. Looking back on those days, I think about how much I enjoyed those cereals, probably in large part because it was such a rare treat. When I recently poured myself a bowl of Lucky Charms, I found that the cereal held little of the appeal that it did when I was 7. In fact, I realized that the slightly sweetened grains were much better than the oh-so-stale marshmallows!

I saw Cascadian Farms Clifford Crunch Cereal at the grocery store for $3.99 a box, and decided to see what a "nutritious" cereal for kids would taste like. Let me tell you - this was oh so yummy yummy. This cereal is aimed at kids, but the nutrition and taste appeal to everyone. It tastes exactly like the non-marshmallow part of Lucky Charms - crunchy, lightly sweetened with whole grain shapes.

Each 1 cup serving of Cascadian Farms Clifford Crunch Cereal provides only 100 calories, 1 gram of total fat, no saturated or trans fats, 6% of the daily value of sodium (160 mg), 2 grams of protein and 20 grams of carbohydrates which includes 5 grams of fiber (20% of the DV) and 6 grams of sugar. Additionally, each serving is fortified with 10% of the recommended daily amounts of calcium, vitamins A & C as well as 25% for iron). The ingredients start with organic whole grain oat flour, organic whole grain barley flour, naturally milled organic sugar and oat fiber (more details at their website).

Kids cereal or not, I'll be adding this to my breakfast rotation
