Last week, Post held a Facebook live video chat with Curtis Stone from NBC’s “America’s Next Great Restaurant” and host of Bravo’s “Top Chef Masters,”on the Post Great Grains Facebook Page. The conversation was about how Curtis believes in a whole-food philosophy and the importance of eating less-processed foods, like Post’s Great Grains Cereal, for better nutrition. Curtis said, “The best approach to food is to keep it whole. That’s what they do with Great Grains.” You can learn more from Curtis by watching the video over on the Post Great Grains Facebook Page.
I actually had no idea that Great Grains is a name of a type of cereal that Post makes. Great Grains uses more simple ingredients; more "whole food" ingredients like whole grain flakes from the actual wheat berry, as well as real fruit and nuts. Rather than grinding our wheat into flour and then stamping it into uniform flakes, Great Grains Cranberry Almond Crunch carefully cracks the whole wheat berry, and adds a mix of grains to provide a flake that helps lock in the full flavor and nutrients. The Great Grains cereals come in three different varieties, Cranberry Almond Crunch, Crunchy Pecan (which I really want to try) and Raisins, Dates, & Pecans.
We received Post’s Honey Bunches of Oats newest variety, Raisin Medley. With Three kinds of Raisins you’re sure to find raisins in every bowl of cereal. My husband and kids both really enjoyed eating it. There’s only one cereal with THREE different kinds of raisins and multi-grain flakes – New Honey Bunches of Oats Raisin Medley! Enjoy the crunchy oat clusters, crispy flakes and delicious raisins for the perfect balance of taste, texture and nutrition. I’m not a big raisin fan, so I didn’t care for the cereal, but my opinion doesn’t really count. I don’t like any cereal that gets soggy. You may be thinking, how do I eat cereal, I actually try not too. Or I eat it dry. I do love cereal dry.
Honey Bunches of Oats vanilla bunches is actually one of my favorites when eaten dry. I love that slight hint of vanilla on my cereal. While I was writing this review, I found that Post also makes a cereal called Just Bunches. Now Just Bunches looks like a cereal up my alley because they removed the part that gets soggy, the flakes. I’m going to have to try a box of Honey Roasted Just Bunches the next time I find it in the grocery store.
