Review: In Tune with Attune Foods (Giveaway!)

by

I met Attune Foods at Fitbloggin last year when they hosted one of the breakfasts with Uncle Sam’s Cereal, which I fell in love with. In fact, I came home with so many boxes of it (they were giving it away and I was selfish) that the taxi driver at the airport thought I was a cereal rep.

I could’ve been. I had all this Uncle Sam’s cereal with Strawberries in my bags that I refused to part with even though I had no where to put it in my travel bags, I LOVE.IT. (I figured it out.)

We plowed through it when I got home, too.

So recently, I got to try out a couple more products from Attune and the first thing that caught my eye was this:
erewhon cocoa crispy brown rice cereal
Erewhon Cocoa Crispy Brown Rice Cereal

I was intrigued because the kids have a favorite cereal that is similar to this (it rhymes with Schmocoa Schmispies) which in our house falls under the “weekend cereal” category. I’ll let them have it on the weekend for breakfast because I have an anti-sugary cereal policy before school. Even though in the land of sugary cereals, it’s probably one of the least offensive. But still.

So we gave the Erewhon Cocoa Crispy Brown Rice Cereal a go, pretty much as soon as it was delivered to the door because it was around lunchtime and the munchkin couldn’t wait.

Here is what hath transpired:

And this.

Erewhon Cereal

So I don’t know. What do you think? Yeah, I think it was a hit.

It was actually really good. I had a bowl myself. If you want to compare ingredients, here are the ingredients in the Erewhon brand:

Organic brown rice, Organic evaporated cane juice, Organic brown rice syrup, Organic cocoa powder (processed with alkali), Natural flavors, Organic caramel color, Sea salt, Organic cocoa butter.

Compare to the “other” chocolate-ish Krispy cereal:

Rice, sugar, cocoa processed with alkali, contains 2% or less of semisweet chocolate (sugar, chocolate, dextrose), partially hydrogenated vegetable oil (coconut, soybean and/or cottonseed), salt, malt flavoring, artificial flavor, BHT for freshness

I pretty much feel ok with them having it during the week or on the weekend and that’s what I like about Attune’s products: they are made with ingredients I feel good about.

honeygrahamWe also got to try out the New Morning Honey Graham crackers, which were deeelicious, the ingredients are better and they are so yummy. We love graham crackers around here, but again, these ingredients make me feel so much better.

Organic wheat flour, Organic graham flour, Organic dried cane syrup, Organic vegetable oils (safflower or sunflower oil), Organic honey, Organic molasses, Leavening (baking soda, ammonium bicarbonate), Sea salt, Cream of tartar.

honeyalmond

We also tried the Uncle Sam Honey Almond Cereal which was really good too. Both boys LOVED that one.

Toasted whole wheat berry flake (whole wheat kernels, salt, barley malt), sliced almonds, flax seed, evaporated cane juice, honey, natural flavor.

Now, I don’t always stay away from foods that have the scary-sounding ingredients and long names that you can’t pronounce, but I like to. I made our babyfood when the kids were younger, we use all natural peanut butter and fruit spread instead of jellies, and I love foods that have simple real ingredients in them. I love feeding that to my family.

I do work hard at making certain staples the healthiest version of it possible, though the occasional dino-nugget and/or corndog does get through but I’m pretty happy with the habits the kids are forming early on.

Attune foods are made up of simple, pure ingredients and they also have an array of gluten-free products, vegan, and fat-free products. If you don’t see them in the store, you can order right off the Attune Foods website.

The good news is, Attune is going to give one of you a chance to try some too!

What would YOU try? One of the products I tried? Or is there something else at their website that strikes your fancy? Head on over to the Attune Foods website and take a look and then come back to enter to win the product in the Rafflecopter entry form below. This giveaway ends on 2/1/12.
