Cereal Anyone? [me] & goji Giveaway
Do you like cereal? Well, I LOVE cereal and quite honestly, breakfast in general. And during the week the best thing for me to have in the morning is a bowl of cereal because it's easy, tasty and fast.
Unfortunately many of the cereals that are offered at the grocery store (even the "health" food stores) aren't very good for us. There's A LOT of sugar and of course plenty of preservatives.
That's why I was most excited to have an email in my inbox recently from Adam with [me] & goji, a company that makes custom cereal with all natural and organic ingredients. And the coolest part? YOU can choose exactly what you want to go in your cereal including 60 or so different ingredients. We're talking anything from almonds to golden raisins to gluten-free flakes.
I had so much fun going to their site, choosing my ingredients and even giving the cereal a unique name - Gavin's Granola! You can also put a photo on the container if you wish, although I didn't do that (SO wishing I had!) I started with the "golden granola" and then added some barely flakes, cinnamon, cashews, cranberries and walnuts and even pumpkin seeds. And I really LIKE "Gavin's" Granola (that's actually been MINE!) so much. And, re-ordering is a snap since each custom cereal comes with a recipe id that can be typed in on the site and instantly recreated. How sweet is that?
Also, the cereal comes in this wonderful round container that I plan to recycle, perhaps for toys or a even gift. There was on idea on the [me] & goji blog to put wrapping paper around it and then use it to store cookies inside and give as a gift. Love that!
The cereal starts at $4.90 and comes pretty well "equipped" for about $11.00. You may think that sounds pricey but the container holds 2-3 times more than your regular cereal box. Not to mention you get all natural, organic, healthy and delicious cereal. And just in case you are not keen on creating your own cereal, the site has many pre-mixed recipes as well, including some geared towards kids.
I've chatted with both Adam and Alexander personally on email and they are really nice guys, running a great company that even contributes to charity. And even Oprah thinks so! ;)
So, I'm quite thrilled to share this product with you all and am so grateful that they are offering a FREE container of cereal that includes a unique name and a personalized photo for one of you lucky ducks!
