Quaker Blueberry Vanilla-flavored Puffed Granola offers a combination of crispy puffed brown rice and oats flakes granola, plus freeze-dried blueberries.
A 17-oz box carries a suggested price of $5.99 but I received this courtesy of Quaker.
The puffed brown rice offered a more dense, crunchy texture versus crisp rice cereals (i.e. Rice Krispies and the like), while the oat flakes add that nutty granola flavor. Both had a light sweetness and vanilla flavor with just a hint of caramel notes from honey and molasses.
The freeze-dried blueberries contributed a tart and sweet blueberry flavor that was imparted fairly well to my milk, while also tinging it quite blue.
The cereal portion held its crunch admirably in the milk (better than crisped rice cereal I’d say).
Overall, Quaker Blueberry Vanilla-flavored Puffed Granola turned out pretty nicely in my book. It’s both nice to snack on and good in milk with mild but balanced flavors and sweetness as well as a decent crunch.
