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