Have you heard the news? There’s a keto product in town, Magic Spoon Cereal, and it’s totally changing up the breakfast cereal market… and it’s about time! Cereal is known to be absolutely loaded with sugar and carbs, so it’s a wonder why it ever became what so many people eat first thing in the morning.
Thankfully, Magic Spoon did something about it and created a low-carb cereal that ditched the sugar and gave their cereal more of a protein focus.
Sounds a little too good to be true, right?
Well, kind of… I’m here to tell you why I’m both liking and disliking this cereal as far as it pertains to both my keto and frugal living lifestyle.
What I love about Magic Spoon Cereal:
The taste is spot on. 😋
First off, it’s actually delicious! My keto tastebuds may be tuned a little differently than others, but I was so blown away after the first bite. It was magical. 🤩
Magic Spoon cereal was originally released in four flavors: Fruity, Frosted, Cocoa, and Cinnamon. Out of the four, my top favorites have been the cinnamon and frosted varieties. My brother-in-law Stetson even tried out the cereal and he also loved the Cinnamon flavor (he said they reminded him of Cinnamon Toast Crunch).
The brand recently released two new flavors of cereal, and as much as Stetson and I loved the original Magic Spoon flavors, we were really excited to give these two a try.
Both of the new flavors (Honey Nut and Peanut Butter) were satisfyingly crunchy and perfectly sweet, but the Peanut Butter was an absolute game-changer. Both Stetson and I declared it our absolute favorite of all the Magic Spoon flavors, and I was ordering more before my bowl was even empty! 😬
It uses a great alternative sweetener. 🍯
Many times when sugar is removed from a product, it’s replaced with a not-so-great-for-you sweetener. When I checked the ingredients list on the Magic Spoon box, I was pleasantly surprised to see Allulose, monk fruit, and stevia as the sweeteners. Those are all non-sugar options that our keto nutritionist Tara recommends!
The nutrition facts make my keto lifestyle happy. 😁
Here’s what you’re looking at for each 1/2 cup serving of this cereal:
- 6g of Fat
- 3g Net Carbs (8g Total Carbs – 2g Fiber – 3g Sugar Alcohols)
- 12g of Protein
Plus, it’s not made with any crazy ingredients that I can’t pronounce, so I feel good about what I’m eating.
What I don’t like about Magic Spoon Cereal:
Each box of cereal comes with nearly a $10 price tag.
In a way, I get it. This is the first true keto innovation into the breakfast cereal market, and I’m sure it took quite a bit of R&D (research and development) to get it to taste so darned good. But come on… almost $10 a box?! My money-saving heart just can’t take that price, so hopefully, they release a coupon or cashback promo sometime soon so I can REALLY stock up!
With that said, we did reach out to Magic Spoon and we’re super appreciative when they responded to us with an exclusive code! Just shop on MagicSpoon.com and use promo code HIP2KETO to score free shipping on your order.
All in all, this cereal is truly what it claims to be: Magical!
If you’re a keto eater and you’ve been missing cold, crunchy breakfast cereal, Magic Spoon will fulfill all your wishes. That is, if your wallet isn’t watching. 😆
