Sounds really good! But overall too high calorie for me. 3/4 cup doesn't go very far in my belly. :) I eat Kashi Go Lean most mornings for breakfast. 1 cup is 140 calories. I eat 1 1/2 cups, plus about a cup of almond milk for 40 calories, so I have quite a bit to eat for 250 calories. The same amount of this cereal would be 380 calories. But I bet it tastes better than mine. :)

I love Kashi too. I just wish it was a little lower carbs, particularly GoLean Crunch. Carbs are a real trigger for me, so a bowl of Kashi with a banana can be a bit dangerous for me.

I too thought it was high in calories. BUT for a treat and 1/4 cup in yogurt that would only be a less than 50 calorie addition. So that is doable. But a box would take me FOREVER. I wonder how it would freeze?

Sounds yummy!

I calorie-splurge on cereals. I just can't force myself to be hungry in the morning, so I have a hard time eating big breakfasts. I wouldn't eat a large amount of low-cal cereal. I can eat a small portion of higher-cal cereal. I eat around 300 cal for breakfasts, and that keeps me satisfied until lunch and keeps me from being overwhelmingly hungry at lunch time.

Another one I like is Post Honey Nut Shredded Wheat. It's fairly simple, 1 cup for 190 cal. But it's surprisingly sweet and yummy and has good crunch factor which is satisfying.
