Today from the cereal shelf we pick up another Kashi cereal! Remember way back when we reviewed Kashi Cinnamon Harvest? Yah, me neither, I guess it wasn’t very memorable. But thankfully Kashi is about to redeem itself. HARD.

Heart to Heart Oat Flakes & Blueberry Clusters is a heart healthy cereal to the max. It boasts lots of whole grains (particularly the heart healthy oat), lots of antioxidants, and a low sodium count. And this time it does not compromise on flavor. The oat is perfectly powerful and then that blueberry just socks it to you. Know what the secret is to those tasty berries? Nope, not sugar… The sun! They are sun sweetened! For real! If blueberry always tasted this good I’d eat it every day for every meal!

…and now I can. Well, ok, I should eat a savory meal once in a while, but Heart to Heart Oat Flakes & Blueberry Clusters would be a great help with losing weight while staying healthy, and that makes my crunchy granola Vermont heart happy. :)

The nutrition facts:

Kashi Heart to Heart Oat Flakes & Blueberry Clusters

And here’s how Kashi breaks down the heart smarts:

  • Helps Reduce Cholesterol—1g soluble fiber from oats
  • Helps Support Healthy Arteries—6 natural antioxidants, including green tea and grape seed extract; 100% daily value of 3 B vitamins
  • Helps Promote Healthy Blood Pressure—low sodium

Heart to Heart Oat Flakes & Blueberry Clusters stayed perfectly crunchy when most cereals would have sogged out, the flavor stayed with the cereal and made the milk extra tasty, and these nutrition facts, by definition, don’t lie. Great job, Kashi!!! I forgot during my bowl count that the bag slipped in the beginning so I have to bump my perfect 5 bowl score down just a little, although in my heart it remains a 5.

Taste: A tasty oat flake with amazingly delicious blueberry
Box opening: Easy
Bag rippage: None
Bag slippage: Curses! It’d be a perfect cereal if not for slippage.

    Another winning review – Entertaining and yet straight to the point.

    Man, this cereal is grainier than a Nine Inch Nails video! And they really managed to make their stuff seems like I wouldn’t have to feel guilty about eating it. And I’m pretty sure that I’d love the taste, too.

  2. I love most of Kashi’s stuff – there are very few products that I’ve tried that have fallen flat. I love all the whole grains and the natural ingredients.
