Never heard of it but probably wouldn't try it. With a name like crap for cereal, doesn't appeal to me at all! And then they want $10 for it! Wow, if I was going to charge that much for cereal, I would have thought of a much better name! Who wants to pay $10 for crap? LOL

You NEVER regret a workout!
Love Sojo

I wouldn't buy it but I am sure there will be people that will. I agree with making your own.

I'm with nevergiveup - why would anyone want to buy a food with such a name? And why would they choose such a name for a healthy food and then assume they can succeed in selling it for $10 a box? Good to have a sense of humor, I suppose, but I'm curious enough about the story behind the name that I'm headed to their website now.

The name itself is a big turnoff. I don't want to eat crap even if it is holy- emoticon

I like your take on that, Beni - laughing all the way to the bank.

Having it promoted at the GF Expo and on Dragon's Den should make it popular - at least until the next "big" thing comes along.

No wonder the girl on their website is laughing, she's on her way to the bank.
No way, I wouldn't buy it.

One thing to be careful of when buying cereal though, do not buy it if it contains BHT. I wrote a blog today (no need to reply) but it list the poison in our foods (US) that have been banned in other countries. I had four boxes of cereal in my pantry with BHT! We need to be aware of what is in our food. ....A pretty scary list!

WOW, no thank you. I am just so tired of companies trying to make a fast buck off everyone.

Ingredients
organic chia seeds, organic hulled hemp hearts, organic buckwheat, organic cranberries, organic raisins, organic apple bits, organic cinnamon

I eat oatmeal every morning for breakfast and add my own fresh fruits, so to me I don't think this is anything special.

Cheers,

You can get all of the exact same ingredients and put together the cereal for yourself for cheaper. It's like the difference of buying a large oatmeal cookie for your kids to split, or getting the ingredients and making a batch of cookies, freezing extra, etc. or buying a plate of spaghetti at a restaurant, or making it for your entire family yourself for the same cost. Ya know? it might be costly to get the ingredients together, but it is way more cost effective.

I had to look this one up, with a name like holy crap.lol but it sounds like its very healthy, looks very costly too. I dont eat cereal and definitely would not pay 10.00 for a small bag of it. You might be able to order it on amazon. Com for cheaper.

Has anyone tried it?

I've seen it in the store - but at $10 per small bag; I would like some opinions first.
I'ts gluten free, but I haven't read the remainder of the ingredients yet.
