Sorry for the lack of reviews recently folks – it has certainly been a busy time with Christmas coming up, but do not fear there is another new review today of a delicious granola from Mornflake.
Although I flit to and fro trying various different types of granola, this one is always a staple in our house, one of my family members absolutely adores it- she eats it hot, she eats it cold with milk or smothered in yoghurt in a delicious parfait..and I can certainly see why she loves it so much as it is absolutely delicious!
The granola holds a wonderful light apple flavour, whilst including some freeze dried apple pieces and a good amount of juicy moist sultanas that add a tad extra sweetness to the overall cereal. However it is the texture that I find to be the most pleasing; to me there is a very fine line between too crunchy and too soft – too crunchy and I feel like I’m going to crack my teeth, yet too soft and it just dissipates instantly in milk. Mornflake, well done, as you’ve definitely got it right on this one – although the granola clusters aren’t huge and there are quite a few “tiddly” ones the texture is ideal; it holds its shape well in milk for a considerable amount of time yet still has that gorgeously chewy flavour we all desire when tucking into a bowlful of granola.
Of course; however; with any granola, this doesn’t come lightly on the calorie scale and you can soon find yourself pouring a huge bowl that seems a lot less than it actually is in terms of weight – so maybe not one to buy if you’re trying to lose some weight (after Christmas of course, when all the New Year’s resolutions begin). Nevertheless if you don’t really care and just wish to tuck into a good bowl of tasty cereal then I can’t recommend this more…and the best way to eat it? In my opinion has definitely got to be parfait style…sorry milk!
