Live Active Nut Harvest Crunch Cereal Review

Reviewed by Tanya Jackson | Apr 9, 2008

Live Active Nut Harvest Crunch CerealPost describes their Live Active Nut Harvest Crunch Cereal as having "whole grain flakes with lightly sweetened crunchy clusters, almonds, pecans and walnuts." There is also 3 grams of prebiotic fiber per serving (8 grams of fiber total), and that prebiotic activity is at the heart of the Live Active line of foods which includes Breakstones Live Active Cottage Cheese (read our review) and Live Active Cheeses.

This cereal was crunchy with a heavy taste of cinnamon but it's not sweet and it seemed like something was lacking. Although the almonds and other nuts can clearly be seen, they didn't make the cereal any more tasty, in fact I didn't really 'taste' the nuts - since I hate walnuts and dislike pecans I would have noticed their presence. The prebiotic fiber is supposed to help with digestive health, which translates to increased bowel movements, but after a week of this cereal, I noticed no difference in the frequency of my bathroom visits.

One serving of Live Active Nut Harvest Crunch Cereal has (1 cup) has 220 calories, 6 grams of fat (9% of the RDA), 0.5 grams of saturated fat (3% of the RDA), 11% of the RDA for sodium, 5 grams of protein and 39 grams of total carbohydrate which includes 32% of the RDA for fiber (8 grams) and 8 grams of sugar.

One 13 ounce box cost $3.50 at the time of purchase (Post cereals regularly go on sale thought), but unfortunately for Live Active cereal, the taste is just so-so, there are many cereals with less calories, including our list of 10 low calorie cereals, and Fiber One Cereal with Honey Clusters has more than 50% of the daily value for fiber per serving and tastes better - so no, I won't be buying this again. I will instead get the prebiotics from Dannon Activia or YoPlait YoPlus.
