But let's be real, if they don’t taste good what's the point. That’s where I am at. So I had to know how does this stuff stack up? It's obviously not going to be a sugary as a typical sugar cereal. But could it offer some good flavor?
One particular company has been showing up in my feed a bit more the last several weeks. The Magic Spoon says that they differ from other cereals on the market for using a allulose which is a rare sugar that tastes great but has a zero glycemic impact and 0 calories. They also boost up the protein and fiber thereby lowering the carbs. Coming in at about 3 net carbs per serving. They offer four flavors today. So let's take a look at how they taste.
Before I get into the flavors, which really is the only thing that separates them here, I should talk about the consistency since that’s is uniform across the board. I found the Magic Spoon Cereal to have a slight airy consistency, which what I mean by that is that’s its very light and waffery. Don't interpret that as taste, just how it feels in your mouth. I actually found that the best way to eat my cereal was to add milk, in my case Unsweetened Vanilla Almond milk, and then let it sit in it for about 2 minutes before enjoying. Just to slightly soften them up. And it doesn’t soften much. But for me it helped give it a more normal crunch.
Overall, The Magic Spoon nails the flavor and is definitely a great option for adults looking for something a little healthier. The price point isn't too bad and is about the same as the other brands out there. I would say that the carbs are a bit lower but not by much. Overall I would easily recommend them to anyone looking for a cereal alternative. And what's great is that they offer a nice variety pack so you can try a little of each.
