Results. Kashi Golden Goodness meets all of my criteria and has a surprisingly sweet taste with exciting granola clusters for great texture. And yes, granola clusters are exciting. The box says it is sweetened with a touch of honey, but I swear I taste a faint coffee flavor as well. And, given that I love coffee - this is an added bonus.
The flakes are abnormally tiny (which get soggy quickly) and should probably be called flakettes. The flakettes plus those great granola clusters led me to give it an average score for texture. On the positive side, the serving size is 1.25 cups. Larger quantity = more eating = happier Sara.
Let's talk nutrition (Table). The first ingredient is Kashi's seven grain blend, and I think Kashi probably knows what they are doing. For only 210 calories, 1.5 grams of fat, and a low 15% of calories from sugar you also get 6 grams of fiber and 7 grams of protein. All this for 28.5 cents/ounce (at my local Kroger).
