The Cereal School Reviews: Version 3.0

the-cereal-school-peanut-butter-cereal- The Cereal School Healthy Breakfast Review - MealFinds

The Cereal School has created a healthy breakfast cereal that you can feel good about eating.  And because it is free of gluten, grain, soy, GMO’s, and sugar, with only 100 calories and 1 Weight Watcher point per serving almost anyone, on any diet, can enjoy these bags of crunchy sweetness!

The natural sweeteners used are allulose and monk fruit.  Allulose is a low-calorie sweetener found in figs and raisins that tastes like real sugar but doesn’t affect blood sugar levels in the same way.  Monk fruit is a natural plant-based sweetener that has zero sugar and no calories.  This means no sugar crash (zero glycemic impact) after eating a bowl.

Compare this to the average cereal that is packed with 10g of sugar or more and the difference is clear! Shop now >>

The Cereal School Ingredients and Nutrition Facts

There are 5 The Cereal School flavors including Peanut Butter, Cookies and Cream, Cocoa, Fruity, and Cinnamon Bun you are sure to find a flavor, or two, that you can’t live without.

We tried version 3.0 of The Cereal School cereal and were excited to see how the taste compared to version 2.0 (review below) which left an aftertaste.  We tasted Cocoa and Peanut Butter.  Cocoa was new to us and Peanut Butter we tasted version 2.0 and were hoping for improvements in this latest recipe upgrade.

Best Cereal School Flavors:  Peanut Butter and Cinnamon Bun

We loved the new peanut butter taste!  It tastes better than the previous version with NO after taste and is still packed with protein with no sugar crash.  We highly recommend it.  The cocoa was a deep dark chocolate taste that was good, but not amazing.

We added some of the chocolate to a bowl of the peanut butter cereal to create the ultimate protein-packed peanut butter cup breakfast.  You should absolutely try it!

 

How much does The Cereal School low-carb cereal cost?

You have the option to buy 12 or 24 bags of each flavor.  The cost for 12 bags of keto cereal is $26.99 and $80.97 for 48 bags if you subscribe.  This works out to $2.25 and $1.69 per bag.  As they say, you get what you pay for!

This cereal is packed with better ingredients and more protein than your average cereal and therefore costs more.  Free Shipping & 14 Day Satisfaction Guarantee >>

The Cereal School Reviews: Bottom Line

the-cereal-school-schoolyard-snack-boxes- The Cereal School Healthy Breakfast Review - MealFinds

The Cereal School, aka Schoolyard Snacks, has reinvented the sugary cereals and high-carb snacks we love by replacing the not-so-good stuff with high-quality protein and natural sweeteners.

We give The Cereal School healthy breakfast cereal version 3.0 two thumbs up.  This product would be good for anyone looking to eat better, from kids to teens to adults, those on Weight Watchers or a Keto or gluten-free diet, or anyone looking for a healthy breakfast (or in my case dinner).  The new peanut butter flavor is everything you want in a cereal, real peanut butter taste with lots of crunch, without the sugar, and NO AFTER TASTE!

And while The Cereal School cereal is more expensive than your grocery store cereal, if you are looking for a high-protein and keto-friendly snack or breakfast the price is in line with most premium protein bars.  We only wish that this cereal came in large family-friendly bags and that we could make our own bundles with cheese puffs and cereal.

We also LOVED the new Schoolyard Snacks keto cheddar cheese puffs!  They are packed with a real cheese taste and are super crunchy.  Not to mention, loaded with protein without artificial ingredients.  Check out our Schoolyard Snacks keto cheese puff review for details!   Free Shipping & 14 Day Satisfaction Guarantee >>

Enjoy!
