Trader Joe's Organic Coconut Almond Chia Cereal
...realizing your bald spot is, in fact, pretty bald.
...waking up and being sore for no apparent reason.
...turning down the volume while blasting '90s music alone in your car because it's "too loud."
...realizing the only reason why you're listening to Pearl Jam is because only God knows what the kids are listening to these days but my goodness it sounds like garbage. Drake? Post Malone? Cardi B? Who are these people? Are they people? Or robots? Because robots make music these days. Crazy.
And most pertinent to this review: realizing that some cereal tastes much better without any added sugar.
Such is the case with Trader Joe's Organic Coconut Almond Chia Cereal.
Listen to me. Complaing about not enough chia seeds in my cereal. I do sound old.
It's tasty, tasty cereal for sure. And I'm not usually a cereal person. The flakes are solid and crunchy enough to be fully submerged in milk and still maintain a high factor of munchitude. Probably, if you're a yogurt and cereal person, this would work. And even adding some banana wouldn't be the worst idea.
All those grains...and proteins...and fiber...and calories...this is hearty, filling cereal for sure! A few small handfuls killed my hunger for quite some time.
Anyways I mentioned the "tastes worse when sugar added" thing to Sandy, and she gave me one of those "well duh" looks before stating many cereals taste that way. It's worth noting she's almost exactly two years older than me and females mature quicker than males and all that...so I'm catching up, love. But yeah, extra sugar kinda kills off half the good stuff about this cerea. Which is a shame because it's pretty darn good in fact. 4.5 from me, 3.5 from the older, maturer missus.
Bottom line: Trader Joe's Organic Coconut Almond Chia Cereal: 8 out of 10 Golden Spoons
