I received a few different types of Kashi Heart to Heart Cereal to consider for review here. Since, I love adding cinnamon to EVERYTHING (including coffee), I started with Kashi Heart to Heart Warm Cinnamon Oat Cereal. On Kashi's website, it mentions that, "Heart to Heart cereal was created with more heart healthy ingredients to make taking care of your heart enjoyable." And indeed the packaging is rife with details on how this cereal may be beneficial to your health.
Oh I really like this variety. The flavor is not complex, but is simply cinnamony, lightly sweet and crunchy. Not only is it good as a cereal eaten in the traditional way with milk (or almond milk in my case), but it's also pretty good as a stand-alone snack. I actually prefer this to the Kashi Heart to Heart Honey Oat Waffles (which is also pretty good too).
Each 33 gram serving (3/4 cup) provides 120 calories, only 1.5 grams of total fat, 5 grams of fiber (19% of the daily value), 5 grams of sugars and 4 grams of protein. There is also 100% of the daily value for vitamin E, folic acid, vitamins B6 and B12. So there's more fiber and less sugar in Kashi Heart to Heart Warm Cinnamon Oat Cereal, than in Honey Nut Cheerios.
The ingredients list while a little lengthy, has nothing to be alarmed about, and starts with whole oat flour, oat bran, evaporated cane juice, yellow corn meal and corn flour. I love the simplicity of this cereal. The flavor is on point, nothing too complex and it's simply nutritious.
As previously mentioned, I received Kashi Heart to Heart Warm Cinnamon Oat Cereal from the company, but this retails for $3.99 at my local grocery store. I typically wait until it's on sale to buy Kahi cereals, since they are a bit pricey, and I'll be keeping an eye out to actually buy this.
