Dorset Cereals Chocolate Granola & Macadamia Nuts

Is this the adult Coco Pops many of who can remember when ET first came out actually craves? Every morning I suffer a variety of low sugar cereals with low fat natural yoghurt in a bid to keep the love handles at bay. Perhaps I should just circumb to a bowl of this every morning and get a slight chocolate fix at the same time?

Dorset Cereals Chocolate Granola & Macadamia Nuts Poured Out

For those of you who are interested, this granola cereal is made with 70% Fairtade dark chocolate as well as oats, sunflower seeds and barley flakes – so perhaps you’ll have this before your Munch Seeds elevenses?

Dorset Cereals Chocolate Granola & Macadamia Nuts With Milk

It’s not usual that I step in to the £3.99 range for breakfast cereal as I’m generally drawn into the less expensive, but less imaginative part of the aisle. After munching on half a bowl of this I think I’m going to have to part with a few more of those gold coins in my shop as I’ve started to realise that it’s worth it.

Even though you can see the contents of the box through the barley ear-shaped windows, I didn’t actually expect there to be this much chocolate in it. In actual fact its 10% dark chocolate and 38% oats – which is more than fair and when you compare it against the own-brand cereals which generally have only a smidgen of fruit then its pretty generous.

I just love the balance of the chocolate against the mild oats and the very sweet sugar syrup – well I did at first. That’s the only downside, perhaps now that I’ve consumed nearly 100g of it, is that it is incredibly sweet. I don’t see this feature as being anything negative on the scale of the rubbish most kids consume in their breakfast cereals, but perhaps I just need to pour myself less of it or in the future just have it every other day? After a while you do feel satiated, which is unusual for me with 100g of any food!

If you wanted your children to at least try a breakfast cereal with a bit more wholesomeness and to learn more about the ingredients then perhaps get them to try this and then compare against Coco Pops? Overall it was nice as an irregular breakfast treat (perhaps on Sunday mornings), but I don’t think I’d have it every day!
