Review of two premium breakfast cereals by Dorset Cereals

Dorset Cereals have had a re-design of their colourful packs of late. The company, and brand agency Big Fish had received awards for the packaging in the past, and so it was a challenge for Big Fish to improve on those original designs. Nevertheless, they have done, the logos and the recipe names are now clearer and messages on the packs have been simplified.

Dorset Cereal’s Strawberry & Redcurrant Granola – is new. Overall this recipe is not as sweet as ‘Honey Granola,’ the ‘Elderflower & Blackcurrant (limited edition) or the ‘Chocolate & Macadamia,’ as reviewed previously at TSS Reviews click here to see. This recipe has big, jumbo sized cereal flakes twinned with the nibbling qualities of sunflower seeds which altogether have mouth exercising, teeth grinding qualities that combines rather nicely with the burst of fruitiness from the freeze dried fruits. It is tangy on the taste buds. It is evident that the natural ingredients are energy giving and so ideal to be served at breakfast with milk, yoghurt or fruit juice, and, as with all Dorset Cereal Granolas, are also perfect for snacking, or as a dessert over fruit, together with thick double cream and/or ice-cream.

Strawberry & Redcurrant Granola is priced around £3.79 and is available from Tesco and Sainsbury’s. Is a 550 g sized pack which serves up to 12 small bowlfuls.

Dorest Cereal’s Gloriously Nutty – this premium muesli recipe, as the name suggests, contains lots of roasted almond, hazelnut and brazil nuts, but it is the combination of these nuts with a full on mix of multigrain flakes, dried fruits (apricots, chopped dates and golden raisins) and pumpkins seeds, that really makes this recipe a success – What is not to like! Nuts are rich in Omega 3 and a good source of fibre. Also available – ‘Fantastically Fruity’.

Gloriously Nutty is priced around £3.79 and is available from Waitrose, Sainsbury’s and Tesco. Is a 600 g sized pack which serves up to 13 small bowlfuls.
*****Five Stars awarded
