My Love Affair with Quinoa Continues

The other day I was at Dad’s Nutrition/Organic Market here in Saskatoon to pick up some Bragg’s Liquid Aminos (FYI: it’s cheaper there than even Superstore $8.99 vs $11.99) and spied something new that I hadn’t seen there before – Quinoa Cereal.

So, of course, I had to buy it. It’s a puffed quinoa cereal with cocoa flavor. The coolest thing ever (to me anyways) is that this product has 3 ingredients only. Just three. Organic quinoa, organic cane syrup and organic cocoa powder. Compare that to other cereals – especially those that are marketed as healthy and high in fibre and you’ll see why this is impressive to me.

I ate this for breakfast today. It’s quite tasty and not exactly what I was expecting. The cocoa flavor was quite intense though not super sweet. Kind of liked that it turned my almond milk chocolaty too. Reminds me of that time I was at a slumber party and we had Coco Puffs for breakfast – something I would never have been allowed to eat normally. (Coco Puffs burned my mouth if I recall correctly.)

Overall I liked this cereal quite a lot. It’s light and airy, even has a faint smell of uncooked quinoa – that grassy smell I sometimes catch a whiff of – and I didn’t find it overly sweet which is a huge plus to me.

I’ll buy it again for sure.

GoGo Quinoa has a huge line-up of gluten-free and vegetarian/vegan products and I can’t wait to try some more of their stuff.  I saw a package of their Quinoa Burger mix and next time I’ll give it a try. It’s vegan and gluten-free because it uses quinoa and amaranth.  Interesting …

    Hi,

    I’m trying to find the recipe using GoGo Quinoa Coco Puffs.

    I think that you added chocolate to it.

    Would love the recipe.

    Thanks.

      Hi Megan,

      I am not 100% sure what recipe you’re referring to. I wish I had come up with a recipe using the quinoa puffs and unless I’m completely absent-minded (not ruling that out completely LOL) I don’t believe I have the recipe you’re asking about.

      I wish you luck finding it and feel free to post a link in the comments here to it when you find it. :)

      Cheers!

        So as an owner or a manager of a business or a company, you should give more attention to the sales and marketing strategies that you use for your business in order to get the best
        ROI from your business. If you’re going retail with your small town business idea, be very careful to follow what the town already
        demands. By listing an organization’s advantages, flaws, and obstacles,
        as well as changes it should consider implementing, business analysts reveal solutions to complex
        problems.
