I've really been getting into natural foods, so I'm very excited to hear that Kellogg's is jumping on the wagon, and I can't wait to try this new cereal! My friend Maria over at Adventures of the Mommy Homemaker got to try the new Origins cereal, and she really liked it. See what she has to say below!
I was definitely curious to give the Muesli a try. I have heard that my aunts and cousins in Italy love it and have eaten it since they were children, so it only made sense that I would give it a try. I tried it and loved it. If I could describe it, I'd say it would be like eating oatmeal. The only difference is that it's delicious both cold or hot - and my is it filling!
As you can see, Maria is very happy with the Muesli cereal. However, we don't just want you to take Maria's word for it. Kellogg's is giving one lucky reader a chance to win a Kellogg's Origin Gift Basket, which will include a 3 pack of Kellogg's Origins, an adorably decorated mason jar - good for taking your Origins granola, cereal, or muesli with you while you're on the go - and a $50 Amazon Gift Card!
If you don't want to wait around to find out if you're a winner to try the cereal, you can pick up Kellogg's Origins at Kroger, Meijer, Safeway, Hannaford and select Walmart locations. They retail for $4.59 or 2 for $6! That a total save of $3.18! Woohoo!
Like I said earlier, I've been getting into natural foods. Not only is it healthier, but it's also more satisfying! Our bodies are meant to be fueled by the basic food groups, not by sugar-filled bits and pieces passed off as food by so many companies. I'm very excited to find out that Kellogg's, one of the biggest brand names, is finally getting on board and producing more natural foods. I can't wait to see what they come up with next!
Here's what Maria had to say about this change:
Here's what Maria had to say about this change:
When it comes to Kellogg's we think of Special K, Corn Flakes, Frosted Flakes, and many other delicious and good for you cereals. Well, Kellogg's either stepped into a time machine and went back to Ancient Times, or they just decided to bring the ancient grains back into the 21st Century. It's definitely the latter, since I don't think anyone has created the time machine yet.
You're probably wondering what in the world am I talking about right? Well, I'm talking about Kellogg's Origins available in Cereal, Granola, and Muesli. If you're a health nut, or trying to become healthy, then you probably already know what muesli is. If you don't allow me to explain what all three are. The following information below was provided by Kellogg's.
