Great müesli: the kind that could actually be sold in Switzerland.
on July 26, 2008
Having lived in Switzerland for several years, one of the things I missed coming to this country was the ready availability of good breakfast cereals. I have never quite understood how the sugar-filled granola stuff could ever have been mistaken as healthy and nutritious.
Since the stores in my area do not carry decent müeslis (Trader Joe's has a "blueberry" müesli, whose "blueberries" are actually blueberry-flavored cranberries...), I tried to order online, and ran into this product on Amazon, which I ordered based on the reviews.
It turned out to be a lucky choice. Bob's Red Mill müesli is the way müesli should be: a short list of ingredients (10), none of which require a degree in chemistry to understand. A mix of cereals and nuts, to which a delicious combination of dried fruit add a wonderful fruitiness and a subtle sweetness. Great with cold and warm milk, yoghurt, or as a base for a Bircher-style müesli.
This müesli ranks right there with some of the best stuff you can buy in Switzerland, and if you have ever had müesli there, you know this is no small praise.
