No I’m not being a potty mouth! This is the name of the breakfast cereal I tried this morning. For anyone that watched Dragon’s Den earlier in the year you should be familiar with this name. I will be honest, I didn’t watch the show so I didn’t see them on tv. I'm told the creators are from BC. Anyhow, a lady at work decided to buy 6 bags of their cereal. Holy Crap and Skinny B. She approached me on Thursday to ask if I was interested in buying a bag from her so I could try it and do a blog post. I would never pass up the opportunity to try something healthy and new so I gladly accepted her offer!
I mixed 2 tablespoons of the cereal with 4 tablespoons of almond milk and let it sit for 5 minutes. The result was quite tasty. The dried apple bits give it a yummy flavor. I bet this would taste great added to yogurt as well!

Wow how’s that for an ingredient list? I can actually pronounce and recognize everything on the list!
8 oz/225 grams of the cereal cost me $10.80. That was buying from a co-worker which saved me on the shipping. The bag needs to be refrigerated after you open it. They claim a bag will last a single person eating it 8-10 days. Expensive when you compare it to a cereal you can just buy off the shelf. When you go organic and gluten free it’s comparable to other prices out there. I typically eat 2 poached eggs for breakfast a day. The eggs are local from a friend who has her own chickens. A dozen eggs cost me $2.50 so they last me 6 days. The cereal is definitely more expensive than my typical eggs but that’s just comparing price. Eggs vs Cereal.
I’m going to continue eating this cereal for breakfast and snacks and I will let everyone know how I get along. I just finished a bowl for breakfast and really enjoyed it.
Has anyone else out there tried it? What did you think of it? I can’t wait to try the Skinny B cereal next!
