£1.99 for 410g (This is just enough for 2 bowls for an adult so the product won’t last long, however they do use better products and it is more nutritional)

Sugar: No added sugar which is good, but there’s still a lot in it.
I chose this because it looked more nutritional than the other cereals, and it looked like the company ‘made an effort’ to try and be healthier. It was also nice that they use a variety of oats (decent sized) and a variety of nuts, including brazil nuts which is great and really good for us. They did not have details of any vitamins and minerals on the box, which is a shame, as that would be a good selling point. Being a woman, I am always looking for cereals with iron in it and any vitamins that can improve my skin and hair. I can’t stand raisins so it was great to find a cereal that have none in it.
Taste: Good, nice and nutty.
Cardboard box: Made out of recycled fibre, but this was not stated on the box. I found this on their website. It is good that this is recycled.
Carbon Footprint: There was no British flag on the box but I had to look through their website to see where the oats etc come from. It turns out that they use British farmers for their oats and they import fruits and nuts but do not state where they import them from (this is important to me) and are they sourcing them from ethical countries? On their website, they are vague about this.
Good employer: Nothing on their website or box says that the company supports the Low Pay commission.
Pesticide Use: For all we know they choose farmers that use pesticides. There is nothing on the box saying they do not. As they visit their suppliers regularly, they should be able to tell us us whether they support such farmers.
Would I buy this product again? Not sure. They are not clear about pesticide use.
