Aaron and I were both intrigued by the popular Magic Spoon Cereal as advertised by various YouTubers. It claims to be a healthier alternative to the store-bought cereals that we’ve grown up loving but later realizing that it it is full of sugar and other things that are probably bad for us. We decided to purchase the variety pack with 4 flavours: Fruity, Cocoa, Peanut Butter, and Frosted. Aaron also decided to add on the Honey. These flavours are basically attempted replicas of the Classic cereal favourites: Fruit Loops, Cocoa Puffs, Reese’s Puffs, Frosted Flakes and Honey Nut Cheerios. They even put a nutritional comparison table on their website so there’s no hiding this fact. (Although I thought they can’t do that, which is why commercials always say “as compared to other competing brands” instead of naming the exact brands.) Shipping was fast. It came in very whimsical and colourful packaging. Each box is a lot smaller than your usual cereal box so each box was only good for around 5 servings. Looking at the ingredients list, it was nice to see that all those listed were generally recognizable words without chemical names. Overall, we were pleasantly surprised by the taste of these “healthier” cereal options. They tasted not bad but did they taste like the real thing? For the most part, no. All except for my favourite flavour – Fruity. Our friends also recommended we try to mix the Cocoa and Peanut Butter and it was a delicious combo as well. Since our purchase, it looks like they axe’d the Honey flavour, which doesn’t surprise me because the taste was not particularly remarkable.
Was it worth the splurge?
I think it was good to try it out and I may want to get some more of the Fruity cereal in the future if I’m ever craving Fruit Loops, which I haven’t had for years. We’re not on any strict diet but this cereal is a great option for those on keto or gluten-free diets.
