Protein Cereal? What on EARTH is that? As much as it sounds like eating chicken or protein powder flavored cereal, it’s not. Read on, bloggies! 🙂
Kay’s Naturals is a brand that makes better alternatives to snacks, packed with nutritious protein and fiber for satiety. They make a whole assortment of snacks and cereals to please all, and they are mostly Gluten Free. They want you to “Build Muscle, Not Fat” with their nutritious and generally low calorie foods made with all natural ingredients.
I was sent the Protein Cereal in Apple Cinnamon and French Vanilla flavors to try. They also have honey almond, which if given the chance, i would definietely like to try. I looove honey! The cereals have no trans fats, are gluten free, and have 9 grams of protein per 100 calorie serving (1 oz of cereal). Each of the cereals are ring shapes and resemble cheerios. They are not as dense as cheerios, and have a light and crunchy texture.
Apple Cinnamon- These were very good. They tasted like a combination of Apple Cinnamon cheerios and Genisoy’s Apple Cinnamon soy crisps, but with a hint of a vanilla flavor as well. They had a good amount of sweetness too to accompany the cinnamon flavor, and I liked the little pieces of dehydrated apples on each piece. They were addicting and went nicely with my Starbucks Vanilla Skinny Latte I got today. It curbed my hunger until dinner time and powered my shopping at the mall too 🙂
French Vanilla– Yum! I liked these better than the apple cinnamon variety, but I enjoyed both for the most part. They were a little bit sweeter than the apple cinnamon, and had a light vanilla and cinnamon flavor. I also tasted just a touch of honey to these crispy O’s. They paired nicely with my Stonyfield Pumpkin Pie Yogurt 🙂
Overall, these deserve 4 stars. You get a nice portion of cereal to munch on for only 100 calories, and you get 9 grams of lean soy protein per serving to curb that hungry beast! I definietly want to try more of Kay’s products, they look delicious! Have you ever tried any? Which ones are your favorite?
1 bag (1 oz) is 100 calories, 1.5 grams of fat, 15 grams of carbohydrates, 3 grams of fiber and 9 grams of protein, with only 3 grams of sugar per serving. Nice!
