Kashi Heart to Heart Honey Toasted Oat Cereal Review

Kashi Heart to Heart Honey Toasted OatKashi GoLean Cereal is one of my favorites - it's chock full of protein and fiber, and it tastes pretty good too. However, it's not really conducive to throwing in a bag to snack on, because the fiber twigs, soy protein grahams, and honey-toasted puffs are a little too small to be easily picked up. Kashi Heart to Heart Honey Toasted Oat Cereal, on the other hand, is the perfect finger food (and it tastes pretty darn good too).

How can I begin to describe this?! It's like Cheerios, sweetened and on steroids - the rings are really big and crunchy, and there are cute, oaty hearts interspersed with the O's. I found the crunch to be very nice, especially since it meant that the cereal didn't get soggy quickly in milk, but I know some people may find it to be overwhelming. This cereal is sweetened with evaporated cane juice and honey for a pleasing but not overwhelming sweetness,

Kashi thought about nutrition when they were making this cereal, and included ingredients to promote health: 1 gram of soluble fiber from oats to help reduce cholesterol, 6 natural antioxidants, including green tea and grape seed extracts along with 100% daily value of 3 B vitamins to helps support healthy arteries, and low sodium to help promote healthy blood pressure.

Even if you eat a more realistic one cup serving (I definitely did!) you're taking in only 140 calories, high fiber and a generous amount of protein. I bought a 12.4 ounce box of this cereal from FreshDirect.com for $3.79, which is not bad compared to other cereals of this caliber.

For me, the price was well worth it; I may even go to Amazon.com to stock up (cheaper with their free shipping). I love this stuff!
