Kashi GoLean Crunch: Honey Almond Flax

My second Kashi item. Yay! There were many Kashi cereal varieties to choose from, but I finally settled for the GoLean Crunch in Honey Almond Flax. Looking at the nutritional label, it kind of scared me because a serving is 200 calories, but then I realized that it is for 1 cup, not the usual 3/4 of a cup. I figured the extra calories are worth it if I am feeding my body with something that has high nutritional value. On the box, the clusters looked like granola to me, but they are actually multigrain cluster. I love how they have some "corn puff" type mix to their texture and the natural sweetness of everything. With 500 mg of omega-3, 9 grams of protein, and 8 gram of fiber, this cereal is packed with a lot of goodies and is really filling. I like to eat my cereal dry because I don't like soggy cereal, so my only complaint about this is that sometimes the clusters are too hard so it I have to chew it really hard. Hurts my teeth sometimes. I might try this with milk tomorrow just to see if I like it better that way. Nothing like a good nutritional breakfast to start off a day. I think it's time for me to move on from my Cheerios and Special K days.

Retail: $3.39 at Super Walmart
My Cost: $2.39 with coupon
Calories: 200 calories per cup
WW: 4 points

Edit: I tried it out with milk this morning and the cereal did become softer to the chew, but not soggy like other cereals. I poured myself 1 cup of Kashi plus 1/4 cup milk and had a really hard time finishing it because it was so filling.
