You know what they say- breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Unfortunately, while browsing the breakfast isle at the grocery store, I am usually distraught. I can't stand sugar cereal. I never had it growing up, and my daughter doesn't even know it exists. Don't get me wrong, we don't eat perfectly. If I lived in a perfect world, I would have a four course breakfast meal every morning. Yet life gets in the way sometimes, and with school season coming up, we have to have quick and easy solutions for those short on time mornings. Me & Goji has created a wonderful solution for everyone- custom artisanal cereal.
Me & Goji has an awesome idea- you visit their website, and create your ultimate cereal. You can add practically anything you can imagine! As an added bonus, everything is all natural and healthy!
To start, you create your base- choose from 9 different basics. From granola, oats, flakes and more. If you are uncertain about an item, you can read the information about an item. You can decide what you like from taste, texture or nutritional needs.
Next, you enhance your base. Most people choose 1-2 options in this area. You can add in raw ingredients such as cinnamon or nutmeg. There are options such as granola, oats, wheat germ and so much more.
Step 2- add in dried fruits. My favorite part! Most people add in 2-3 dried fruits. I love dried fruits in my cereal, and Me& Goji will not let you down- they have a huge selection! Apples, cranberries, strawberries, bananas, blueberries and goji are just a few of the options.
Next up, add in nuts and seeds. Most people pick 2-3 options here as well. Almonds, walnuts, pistachios.. and more, YUM! That added crunch is perfect to me!
After that, you are all done with your cereal, but the customizable part is SO not done yet! You get to name your cereal! I know when you hear this, it sounds like you are only naming your cereal so that if you place an order again it is ready. That is true, but at Me & Goji, they actually print your name on your cereal container! You can even add a picture! Cute! How cool is that?
Obviously, I had the opportunity to review a cereal made by ME! I chose artisanal cereal added in choco granola. Next, I picked cranberry, banana, blueberry and apples as my fruits. Then walnuts! YUMMY!
I had no idea that the container would be so big! There is actually 15 servings of cereal in this tube! All of my ingredients are listed on the back, along with the nutritional facts. One the bottom, there is a hand signed signature, by the person that made my cereal!
Simply put, the cereal was awesome. I got exactly what I wanted.
Great, healthy cereal that taste amazing. My mix had a wonderful crunch of cereal, granola and walnuts, with a sweet taste of fruits.
Like sugar cereals, there was also a prize inside! We found a small bag, and inside there was some information about golden berries- an ingredient inside my cereal- very cool! We love to read a little something while we grub down on our cereal!
The entire idea behind Me & Goji is awesome- you can now have exactly what you want!!
Everything offered is wholesome, nutritious and oh-so-yummy!
If you don't like having this many options, you can browse their recipes that are already made up.
Plenty of health options as well- such as gluten free cereals.
The price for my cereal was almost $16 - a bit steep for a cereal, but there is a ton of stuff in there!
One reader will win their own custom cereal from Me & Goji!!
