So here’s something you’ve probably never thought of getting for a Christmas gift: cereal. That’s probably because you’re thinking of the boxed varieties lining the grocery store aisles – Me & Goji takes cereal to a whole new level.
The Skinny: This site allows you to create your own custom blend of ingredients or choose from some of their recipes. The ingredients are all high-quality and many of them meet special dietary needs. They are the first custom cereal & granola company where you can design your own cereal from 60+ all-natural ingredients, name your creation, and upload a picture right to the label! Cereal then arrives in a Cereal Capsule, designed for portability and keeping your mix fresh.
Our Opinion: My opinion wavered back and forth prior to receiving our cereal to try. First, I love the concept. Anything custom immediately appeals to me, because I know it’ll be JUST what I like. When I went to the site, I was initially put off a little by the pricing. This isn’t your run-of-the-mill cereal, and the prices do reflect the quality of ingredients provided. I wondered if the value of the product would be worth the cost. In designing my cereal blend, I became really excited to receive it – I got to add pistachios, pecans, cashews, dried strawberries, dried apples, dried pineapple, and more.
When we received the cereal I was completely surprised with how big the canister is. The site says that the canister holds almost twice as many servings as the typical cereal box, but I really felt like it would be even more than that.
We were really impressed with the quality and freshness of the ingredients. With everything included, I really felt like this could serve as a trail mix of sorts – in fact, I plan to order another container of cereal with that in mind. I’d love to grab a bag of it to snack on at work – I don’t think you even need milk to enjoy this. So, overall impression is this: the pricing is a little high, but the value is definitely there for your money. This is a company that seems to take pride in every aspect of the product, and it really shows.
Buy it For: Mom & Dad, any foodies you know, or anyone with special dietary needs. This could be a really fun gift especially with the customization options for packaging.
