- Case of four 17.5-ounce boxes (70 total ounces)

- Serving exchange: 1.5 carbohydrates
- A low-fat, no-cholesterol, chocolaty breakfast cereal that is an excellent source of essential nutrients
Great for the kid in all of us–but not the healthiest cereal…
Moreover, this cereal is low in fat, offers no trans fats (HOORAY!), no cholesterol, and the 120 calories per serving is low, too. It’s even “Certified Kosher” if that matters to you. Excellent!
However, this cereal is not the most nutritious cereal you can buy; and for this reason I can only give it four stars. Yes, it is very low in fat, calories and cholesterol; and it doesn’t have too many carbohydrates, either. Unfortunately, however, Cocoa Krispies does contain sodium and it just doesn’t offer enough POW in the vitamin department. It has sugar; and sugar turns into fat if you eat enough of it. Be careful–there may be more fat than there would seem to be in this cereal!
Overall, this breakfast cereal is understandably popular with children and it’s great for the kid in all of us. It is low in fat and there is no cholesterol; there are no transfats either. The price is reasonable, too. However, it could be more nutritious. As breakfast cereals go, this one will certainly suffice. However, parents who want a highly nutritious breakfast cereal for their children will have to look further.
The cereal was great, but the cost…
Since the idea is to save on costs from volume purchasing, the idea failed. Without the coupon, this food buy was not a good deal at all. One by one I saw all the products offered and all the ones I bought become sale items that were significantly less expensive – we’re talking in the 45% range here. I suppose, if you are in a remote area where the gas cost would eat the savings of finding a good price, this would be a decent service. But anyone in a suburban or urban setting will get a better deal at the Kroger’s or Ralphs than this.
