New Product Review:
Nature Valley Breakfast Biscuits
From General MillsReviewed by Mr Breakfast on 4/1/2014
I was super surprised at how much I liked these. My expectations were low. They look like crackers. Yesterday, I had waffles and sausage. I couldn't imagine feeling satisfied from a packet of four crackers. I was wrong. To characterize these breakfast biscuits as crackers or cookies is wrong.
The variety I tried was blueberry. As I took my first couple of bites, I scanned my breakfast memory to figure out what this product reminded me of. It was blueberry pancakes. Do you remember the scene in Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory where Violet Beauregarde chews a piece of gum and gets all the flavors of a three-course meal. It's almost that startling. If you concentrate on the flavors in your mouth, it's like starting with blueberry pancakes, having a blueberry scone and then finishing with a blueberry oatmeal cookie.
So, it's clear I love the flavor. But can these modest sized biscuits fill you up? A serving consists of 1 pouch which contains 4 biscuits. By the third biscuit, I was starting to feel full. I reread the package to see if I was really entitled to another biscuit. By the end of the serving, I was genuinely full... I mean, I felt like I overate. I stayed full and satisfied for the next 4 hours.
With much surprise, I enthusiastically recommend this product.

What do you think of Nature Valley Breakfast Biscuits?
They need to tone down overwhelming blueberry flavor. I suspect it comes from the 'natural flavors' ingredient because I don't think a few pieces of dried blueberries can do that. It doesn't come off as a natural flavor like eating a handful of blueberries but rather the 'blue flavor' of a blue berry-flavored Popsicle. And the bar's berry flavor sticks to your mouth, like an oily sheen. Other than the fake blueberry flavor these aren't bad, which is why I'm so disappointed in the fakey blueberry flavor.

Oh my gosh! I absolutely love these breakfast biscuits! I got the honey and the blueberry ones. I have not tried the other ones yet, but I am in love with the honey ones! Thank you so much for these great breakfast biscuits Nature Valley!

These are so good! I break them up and put them in my yogurt.

I really am not wild over BelVita. I am hoping these are softer.
