Every morning I go for my ice coffee from Dunkin’ Donuts. Guess what I order? A large French Vanilla Ice Coffee, light with cream and with four Splendas. I LOVE the French Vanilla! So imagine my JOY when Poppy brought home a container of French Vanilla Almond Crunch from Archer Farms!

My first impression is that the packaging is impressive. There’s no bag, and the cover is an airtight plastic cover to help keep the cereal fresh. Very very fancy.

My second impression is that the cereal smells like Play-Doh.



Considering I once spent a week eating cold Chef Boyardee out of the can, I’ve eaten worse. Besides, it’s all for you our loyal fans and cereal connoisseurs!

This is where things got amazing, because the taste is absolutely incredible!!! Maybe it’s my partiality to almonds over other nuts. Maybe it’s my partiality to French Vanilla. Whatever it was… smell aside… the flavor earned it the rating all by itself.

Now I have to be honest, I am NOT a fan of all these organic all natural cereals. Really they’re just filler with very little nutritional value and a high calorie count, as this cereal shows. But really?

240 calories per serving

Holy junkfood Cereal Eater!!! I can get a McRib for that many calories and still get more nutritional value! Insanity.

Want to know what else is insane? Apparently Archer Farms doesn’t have a website. This makes me wonder what corporate monger is behind them and their cereal. Still… the cereal is tastey and slightly addicting… kind of like if crack came in a box.

Buy at your own risk and eat it with abandon.

  3. Great review and very funny! I just looked at my granola box and it doesn’t have a lot of vitamin content by itself either, but I add fresh blueberries and yogurt so I tell myself I’m getting my vitamins from those.

    The show-daddy is back!
    The cereal seems like it’s great for the taste buds, and horrible for everything else.

    In any case, may your mouth always be full (when you review).

  5. Interesting… the taste intrigues me, but I’m not sure if I can get it in my area. I’ll add it to my shopping list!
