I used to love this cereal because the flakes are great, but recently, I have found an extremely excessive amount of sugar coated raisins in this cereal. I have to pick most of them out. I know companies are trying to put more raisins in products, because there is such an excess of them grown and produced, and it increases the weight, but it is very difficult to pick half of them out before eating, and the amount of sugar they provide is excessive. Until the amount of raisins are reduced back to what they were, I will stop buying this cereal. By the way, what does "Naturally Sweetened" mean? Does that mean that someone adds cane sugar "naturally" instead of while standing on a tightrope? Why not just say "sweetened with cane sugar"? And what does "juicy" raisins mean" Aren't raisins dehydrated grapes by definition. They are fine, but they are not "juicy."
I absolutely love your Mesa Sunrise Cereal, and sure wish I could eat raisins... however, without realizing, I bought the one with raisins and spent a good 1/2 hour picking them all out! That time does not include washing the plate, bowl, cup for the raisins, and the spoon needed to get all those raisins out. I'm guessing I lost 120g weight of the cereal by losing the raisins... sigh!! Next time I will be sure to read the finer print and avoid buying the one with raisins. The plain Mesa Cereal I rate a 5 stars, but because of this, I only gave it a 4. Thanks again for all your gluten free, whole grain, organic goodness! I do appreciate your cereals that do not contain many grams of sugars, like the plain Mesa Sunrise and the Whole O's! I will write a review for both of these!
I was scared to try it but bought it away and I'm glad I did! love it! Tastes amazing with almond milk. I do wish it contained more fibre!
