[me] & goji Custom Artisanal Cereal Review and Giveaway

I love cereal, I eat a ton of it.  I even eat it for lunch like I just did and we have ironically had dinners where we have had a bowl or two of cereal.  Hubby is always asking me why I tend to buy cereal every week especially when we don't need it.  I tell him I like variety and tend not to stick to the same kinds of cereal.  Yes, I definitely have my favorites like Raisin Nut Bran and Reese's Peanut Butter Puffs.  Recently, I was really excited to visit a great company called [me] & goji, which is a great site you can go to to create your own artisanal cereal mix.  With so many wonderful and healthy ingredients to choose from, I was really happy when I was given the opportunity to create my own cereal, complete right down to naming my mix.  I created Mommy's Mix and here are my ingredients:
*Golden Granola
*Ground Cinnamon
*Ground Nutmeg
*Macadamia Nuts
I do love my fruits and for sure was really excited when I could add my all time favorite Macadamia Nuts, YUM!  When this cereal got to my door in the special "Cereal Capsule" and I saw how big the container was, I was elated.  This was big enough to share, but I wasn't sure that I really wanted to, after all, this was Mommy's Mix.  I had a huge bowl the next morning for breakfast and it was really delicious, so fresh and definitely flavorful with all of my fruits.  I love how [me] & goji has such a wide range of ingredients that you can out into your cereal to make a nice and healthy creation.  The process is really easy too,  You start out with a base such as granola, muesli, wheat , and more and then you get to add the goodies such as fruits, nuts, seeds, coconut, soy and much more to create your own special blend.  Then you can name your mix and even add a picture for a little extra if you'd like to.  This for me was a lot of fun to do and the possibilities are endless.  You can add as much or as little as you like, whatever strikes your tastes.  Yes, I did share my mix with the hubby and the girls and we all just loved it.  I love to grab a handful when I want a quick snack, that is definitely when it is at it's best!  I hope to order another mix soon, hubby wants to make his own.

The idea behind [me] & goji is simple: they collect the healthiest foods from around the world and you fuse them into the combinations that satisfy your unique tastes and nutritional needs.  Their library of ingredients is like a table of contents for the world's healthiest food list.  Starting your day with [me] & goji means starting your day with the confidence of knowing you possess the essential building blocks for exceptional health:vitamins, minerals, fiber, essential fatty acids, antioxidants, all for under $1 a bowl.

[me] & goji is the dream of three friends (Adam, Alexander, and Carl) combining their passions for healthy food, unique products, and good design-cereal couture if you will.  [me] & goji is a mission driven company that believes in using their resources in ways that benefit the environment and social needs and enjoying the journey.  [me] & goji all natural and organic ingredients to optimize your health and preserve your environment.  They reduce waste and consumption of packaging materials by using 100& recyclable cereal capsules.
[me] & goji offers gluten free versions and ideas for cereals for those who have specific dietary needs.  Plus you can head over to the Cereal Store and see what some great specialty mixes including nutritional values.  You can also order a special t-shirt or tank top with the [me] and goji logo as well as several gift options.  

Cereal bases start at $4.90 and each extra ingredient ranges from 25 cents to $2.
Cereal sizes are 600g-over 21 ounces-15 servings.  A store bought box of cereal contains only 11-16 ounces so you are getting 50-90% more cereal than a standard box.  Most customers add an average of 5 extra ingredients (most extra-21).  The average price of mix is $12, least expensive $4.90, most expensive $56).  For more information and to see all that [me] & goji has to offer, please head over HERE.
