One need only scroll through Instagram and Facebook to find a plethora of beauty, health and fitness bloggers all imparting their tips and tricks for the smoothest contour and trimmest waist. Never being one to shy away from such avant-garde trends, I was delighted to stumble across a hybrid variant poised on the boundary between grains and gains; and so my dear readers I have chosen this week to review Shreddies Max Protein.
With 10g of protein per serving, Shreddies Max Protein is bound to build booty in an instant. The cereal itself consists of a granola base with pieces of broken Shreddies incorporated there within, leading to a rather crunchy granola. The cereal takes at least 10 minutes before becoming soft enough to eat without making it look or feel as though a tiny hamster has used your mouth as an exercise wheel. This is obviously not the best cereal to choose if in a hurry. On the plus side, however, those who are slow eaters yet have an aversion to soggy cereal will rejoice at the time afforded to savour every last bite. This granola come Shreddy mash up is rather sweet, calling for a smaller portion size than usual; a welcome discovery given the meagre size of the box. Thankfully, one of the redeeming features of this cereal is that it really is rather filling. The one thing I still cannot get my head around, however, is how a breakfast cereal can contain more protein than a bacon and egg roll? One box in, I am yet to see any real muscle growth. If anyone can shed some light on this query, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
And on that note, here are my ratings for Shreddies Max Protein:
Crunch Factor: 4.5/5
Overall Rating: 3/5
