I was sitting at moping one day as I had a nasty sinus infection, added to which the builders working on the house were using a paint which made my eyes feel as if they were being nibbled with mice. A package arrived - I had been sent a couple of packs of gluten free cereals to try. As I hadn't been able to get out shopping for a while I was very pleased.
I eat my cereal with apple sauce - I have several apple trees so that is always available. Because of this I cannot tell you how they taste with milk.
The O's are firm and crisp and not too sweet. I had a box with 325g, and it went quite fast as I ate small portions whenever I felt like a snack. I would certainly buy these again if I saw them in the shop. Gf cereals are often too sweet or salty, and I thought these had a very good balance.
The Maple Sunrise is very different. It is made a variety of whole grains, including amaranth, quinoa and buckwheat. The cereal comes as lots of different shapes as some of the grains/seeds are whole. I found this cereal too sweet for me, but I tend to like things without half the sugar other people like. I did find I grabbed a handful to sprinkle on top of fruit or just to eat plain. It has a pronounced maple flavour, and I think it would be good sprinkled on top of vanilla ice-cream as a crunchy topping if you can eat ice-cream.
I had intended to try both of these as ingredients in recipes. I think, for example, that the O's would be good for making a rocky road type of cake - usually made with broken biscuits. The firm crunch would be good surrounded with chocolate. However, I ate them all before I got around to this.
