Nature's Path Organic Love Crunch Cereal

I received a box of the limited edition Nature's Path Organic Love Crunch Cereal to review. The description on the front of the box read, dark chocolate chunks, raspberry, strawberry, coconut & flax granola. Now as tasty as that sounds, it also seems rather decadent and calorie laden, so I decided to scope out the nutrition facts first.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 3/4 cup (55 grams)
Calories: 260
Total Fat: 9 grams, 14%
Saturated Fat: 2 grams, 10%
Sodium: 25 mg, 1%
Carbohydrates: 38 grams
Fiber: 4 grams, 16%
Sugar: 10 grams
Protein: 5 grams

Each 55 gram (3/4 cup) serving of Nature's Path Organic Love Crunch Cereal provides 260 calories, 9 grams of total fat, 2 grams of which is saturated (14% and 10% of the daily value), 4 grams of fiber (16% of the DV), 10 grams of sugars and 5 grams of protein. Unfortunately, that calorie count is way higher than any cereal I would normally consume - give me some Nature's Path Organic Flax Plus Multi Bran Cereal at 110 calories per serving, or Nature's Path Optimum Organic Strawberry & Yogurt Cereal at 170 calories for a 1 cup serving - and I'm good.

But, the taste is phenomenal. The cereal is crunchy (but not as hard as Kashi GoLean Crunch) and the chocolate chunks are plentiful, so they provide a nice change in texture as well as a pop of sweetness. I wish there had been more berry pieces, because they provide a little tartness, but they were few and far between.

The ingredients list is of course, all natural & organic. Nature's Path Organic Love Crunch Cereal can be purchased at Whole Foods (not sure of the retail price but it's usually $4 - $5), but as mentioned before, there are other, less caloric, all natural cereal choices out there. I do love me some Nature's Path products, but this cereal would not be a regular everyday cereal for me.
