Custom Choice Cereal Review and Giveaway

I eat cereal for breakfast a few times a week. I love the crunchy cereals that are filled with nuts and granola and raisins, those are by far my favorites. I see cereals in the grocery store that have items in it that I like, and items that I don't like. It's not always easy picking out what you don't want when you have a bowl of cereal in the mornings though. I never thought that I could make a cereal that had only my favorite ingredients in it, until now!



Custom Choice Cereal lets you create your personal gluten-free cereal with exactly the ingredients you love! Choose only your favorite dried fruits, nuts & seeds for the perfect mix. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and we want to make sure you start your days on the right foot!

I chose a base of cinnamon granola, added banana chips, walnuts, raisins and almonds. I was allowed to create the title of my cereal too which I thought was really fun. Finally, Breakfast of Champions was born!

(Sorry the picture is so blurry.)

This cereal was so fun to make and it was shipped very fast too! I chowed down on it the next morning, and I can say that I absolutely loved it. All of the ingredients were very fresh and provided a great crunch! The cinnamon granola and the banana chips had a great true flavor which when combined with the walnuts, raisins, and almonds was fantastic! It was like having my own personal trail mix, but in a cereal. I would love to play around with different combinations of the cereal to find new favorites. The bag is big enough to last for a few bowls of cereal, whih is nice. I think this would be a fun gift for a cereal lover. Who wouldn't love creating their own mix?
