Kelloggs – Not so ‘Glorious Oat Granola’

Yes it’s a review blog post.

It’s an unhappy review blog post.

Wife purchased some Kellog’s Crunchy Nut ‘Glorious Oat Granola’ yesterday, it was on offer in Asda.

“Baked to perfection, with a sumptuous blend of mixed fruits, hazelnuts and almonds” That’s what the description says on the bag.

Yes it has all that, it also seems to be bulked out with what can only be described as ‘rice crispies’ I don’t remember those being part of a standard granola recipe.

Of course being made by Kellogg’s it’s more sugary than usual.

The packaging is misleading as well, the bag is full of mostly air, once you open it you realise it’s only half full (that’s not one of those glass half full sayings either).

So let’s recap.

Taste wise – More sugary than usual granola,

Packaging – Misleading, not as full as you’d think the bag is.

Rice Crispie to fruit ratio – High In fact I’d go so far to say they outweigh the actual number of ‘baked oats’
