Review of Ultima Organic Blueberry Blue Corn Cereal

Food Review: Ultima Organic Blueberry Blue Corn Cereal

Being a big fan of blue corn chips (one of my weaknesses), you can imagine how psyched I was to see a cereal made with blue corn. Barbara's Bakery has a whole line of Ultima Organic cereals, and Blueberry & Blue Corn is the latest flavor.

Based on looks, the cereal appears rather ordinary, right? To find out if the cereal lived up to its bland looks and see how much fiber is in a serving, keep reading.

I was so surprised at the enormous flavor these flakes pack. Their flavor is extremely sweet with a strong blueberry essence; so sweet that I had to peek at the nutritional info to make sure it wasn't loaded with sugar. I was pleased to see only nine grams per one-cup serving — not too high at all. This cereal, however, is high in fiber and protein, while being fairly low in fat. The colorful flakes had a delightfully crispy texture, and stayed that way even after soaking for a while in milk. If you love flakes for breakfast and also adore the robust flavor of blueberries, I'd recommend trying this cereal. You can even add fresh fruit and sliced almonds, and it's sure to fill you up and satisfy your need for something sweet in the morning.
