Kellogg's Chocos breakfast cereal

Is it just me or are we really surrounded by reams and reams of chocolate products that we don't even seem to notice? Like all good unhealthy households, mine has boxes of chocolate cereal that are often an excuse for breakfast. Despite their new 'Whole Grain' claim, we know just how good (or not) a chocolate snack is in terms of nutrition.

However, that hasn't stopped people from buying Kellogg's Chocos and other products from the brand and from the Kellogg Company becoming one of the largest cereal manufacturing companies in the world! Of the many kinds of cereal they make, Chocos is my favourite, because who doesn't like to make a meal out of chocolate? :D

The cereal is very crisp and very sweet, thus eliminating the need to add sugar if you're eating it with milk. They turn super soggy and lame like any other cereal if you add hot milk, and stay crisp a little longer in cold milk.They are also good to eat by themselves - like sweet chips - if you are lactose intolerant or simply aren't in the mood for milk giving you an apparent dose of 'proteins, minerals and fibre', and yes, a whole lot of sugar. They are, however, filling and makes for a satisfying breakfast once in a while.

The standard box weighing 375 g is priced at INR 140, but it's also available in handy 30 g (1 serving) packs at Rs. 10. The other Chocos varieties available are Duet - A combination of chocolate and vanilla flavoured flakes, Smacks - square shaped chocolate snacks, and Moon & Stars - cereal shaped like celestial bodies. These certainly are a hit with kids and therefore worth stocking for food tantrum emergencies.

RATING: 3.5/5
