[me] & goji Custom Artisanal Cereal Review & Giveaway -- ENDED

Winning comment is #75!



When I told DH that we were going to review [me] & goji custom artisanal cereal, he was skeptical at first. He wanted to know all about the price and how it might be different from the cereal we buy from the supermarket. I explained to him that the price is indeed more expensive than what we typically pay for cereal, but 1 container of [me] & goji is supposed to have twice the serving sizes as a box of cereal from the supermarket.

So, I went to work and designed 2 containers of cereals based on the stuff we normally like-- one for DH and one for myself. I actually cook some Chinese soups with goji, so I included goji as one of the ingredients in my cereal. I was pleasantly surprised by how good it was. DH, by the same token, was also impressed by the quality of the ingredients in his cereal. He noticed that they are definitely higher and better quality.



DH also noticed that the [me] & goji did last longer than a box of cereal from the supermarket. He also commented that they tasted a lot more hearty. Once you figured out the combination of ingredients you like, you can continue buy the same custom combo or design a new one each time.

In addition to the great taste, the company donates 5% of its profits to charities each year, their Global Guard boxes are made from 100% post consumer waste and printed on with vegetable ink. They also chose a natural foods supplier with a certified organic warehouse, a strong belief in supporting local farmers, and a 30-year history of instilling sustainable business practices.

To buy custom cereal from this wonderful eco friendly company, please visit the [me] & goji website.

Many thanks to [me] & goji. The company has generously offered a giveaway prize to one of my lucky readers so he/she may customize a cereal also (US residents only please).

The IDEA for custom artisanal cereal was spawned while playing soccer together at Northwestern University. forced to live off dorm food and training multiple times per day, we were being asked to perform at a very high level without the proper fuel.
