Review: Kashi Hearttoheart Oat Flakes And Wild Blueberry Clusters

Published 21:42 pm

When it comes to breakfast, I am in the pour-and-eat camp, so I'm always on the lookout for good breakfast cereals.

Since I'm not a kid, I want cereals that are whole grain, low in sugar, and nutritious. You know, a grownup cereal. I've been a fan of Kashi for some time, and therefore I've been excited to try the rash of new products they've been putting out over the past year or so.

The one I was most excited to try is their Heart to Heart Oat Flakes and Blueberry Clusters cereal.

While some people have their preferences regarding flakes, squares, or granules (think Grape-Nuts), I like them all. What I like about this particular cereal is that the flakes are very light and a little bit crispy. I've had flake cereal where the flakes were thick and hard to chew, and that doesn't cut it in my book. I also have to admit that I don't mind if the flakes turn to mush - in fact, I prefer it. So yes, these flakes do turn to mush, but for me, that's plus. I realize this might not be the case for everyone.

What got me so eager to try this cereal was the blueberries. I heart blueberries. Heck, I heart all types of berries - raspberries, blackberries, boysenberries, strawberries - and I'll eat them every chance I get when they're in season. When not in season, I eat them frozen in my hot cereal.

These blueberries appear freeze-dried, and coated with small whole grains such as oats. Therefore, they're crunchy as opposed to chewy, and don't get stuck in your teeth like raisins sometimes do. They also actually taste like blueberries, instead of candy or some weird chemical.

Nutritionally, I'd give this cereal an "eh" due to the quantity of sugar. When cereals taste good, it is usually due to the obscene amount of sugar. In fact, most cereals aren't cereals - they're dessert. This cereal comes pretty close. The first two ingredients are oat bran and rice, which isn't too bad, and third ingredient is evaporated cane juice crystals, e.g., sugar.

The next two ingredients are whole grain rolled oats and the Kashi Seven Whole Grains and Sesame Blend. Again, pretty good. But the next ingredient is evaporated cane juice syrup (sugar), the one after that is brown rice syrup (more sugar), and the one after that is malt extract (even more sugar). If that wasn't enough, if you look a few ingredients down, you'll see honey. That's a lotta sugar. So yes, this cereal tastes good, but now we know why.

Does the amount of B vitamins (100%), folic acid (100%), and vitamin E (100%) offset the amount of sugar? I would say no, especially if you can get these nutrients elsewhere in other nutritious foods. Instead of eating this cereal in the morning with a bowl of milk, you might opt to sprinkle it on top of some yogurt to make it sweeter, especially if you are watching your sugar intake.

In short, it's a good tasting cereal with some nutritional value, but it skirts too close to the line separating breakfast from dessert.
