Here’s my super honest review of Magic Spoon cereal, the good and the bad.

There’s a super delicious, yet totally healthy keto product in town – and I’m even sharing a way to save on it too!

If you haven’t heard of Magic Spoon Cereal by now, I’m about to rock your world with this totally healthy and keto-friendly breakfasts in a box! Forbes is even calling it the breakfast of the future. 🙌

Magic Spoon Cereal with Box

Many of us already know cereal is notorious for being 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 – ditching the sugar and giving us a cereal packed with protein (and deliciousness!).

Welcome back to your favorite childhood breakfasts, keto style! 😏👏

Sounds a little too good to be true, right? 

Well, kind of… I’m going 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 really delicious! My keto tastebuds may be tuned a little differently than others, but I was so blown away!

Every single bite is totally 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). Um…SOLD! 😍

The brand often releases new flavors, too.

That said, keep your eyes peeled for new ones to pop up, like Blueberry and Peanut Butter.

The two new Magic Spoon cereal flavors most recently released are Cookies and Cream & Maple Waffle, which sound incredibly delicious. Lina on our team gave these a try and was RAVING about the Cookies and Cream flavor!

“Okay, this flavor is on point! It’s the perfect blend of chocolate and vanilla, super satisfying, and my favorite flavor. I am SUPER picky about keto cereal, and this one doesn’t even taste like you would assume keto cereals taste. 🤣

In fact, I just made keto trail mix with the Cookies & Cream flavor and I can’t stop munching on it! It’s SO yummy. I recommend trying this one!

Stetson and I really love the Peanut Butter flavor, too!

All Magic Spoon cereal is satisfyingly crunchy and perfectly sweet, but the Peanut Butter is an absolute game-changer. In fact, it’s a best-seller of Magic Spoon! 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! 😬

Magic Spoon uses great alternative sweeteners. 🍯

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 are totally keto-friendly! YES! 👏

The other nutrition facts make my keto lifestyle happy too. 😁

Here’s a range of what you’re looking at for each 1 cup serving of this cereal:

  • 140-170 Calories
  • 7-9g of Fat
  • 4-5g Net Carbs (10-14g Total Carbs – 1-2g Fiber – 5-10g Allulose)
  • 12-14g 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. 🙌

But… here’s 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!

    I really love the taste, but this stuff sticks to my teeth like glue! Does anyone else have this problem? I always eat my cereal dry, so maybe that is the issue?

    • Kari

      Absolutely sticks in my teeth like glue! You are not wrong. Some days I don’t eat it if I don’t have a toothpick 😂 it is delicious though, so worth it. My concern as a keto gal is the high oleic sunflower oil. I know high oleic is better than regular oleic, but it is still like
      – what, 9% ish linoleic? Which can increase insulin resistance.

    Do you use cream for the milk?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Great question! You can use unsweetened almond milk. One cup contains only 1 gram of net carbs, 2.5 grams of fat, and 1 gram of protein. Enjoy!

  3. Sara

    Curious what they use for the food coloring in the cereal. Would like a health and natural dye instead of more chemicals in my diet if I’m paying that much money for a cereal. Might as well go for all natural food coloring at those prices.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Sara! You can find the cereal ingredients pictured above OR through the link in the post. Hope that helps!

    Y’all. I hate writing bad reviews because I’m not just a troll, and I know how much effort goes into creating these products. However, i have four boxes of cereal that i cannot eat. I tried a few dry bites of the peanut butter. Flavor was fine, though a bit too (fake) sweet. BUT it left a gross, glue-like, sort of metallic tasting residue stuck on my teeth. It was nauseating and i cannot being myself to try again. Nor do i want to risk the other three flavors that i had to buy (because if i remember correctly, ordering four boxes was the minimum). It’s not worth that disgusting residue again. 🙁 i appreciate the effort to make sugar-free options, but this was an expensive fail. Did no one else have this problem?!

    • Diane Gagliano

      They offer a no questions asked money-back guarantee.

    • Laura v bois

      No fond of peanut butter but fruity and cocoa was delicious. Definitely better with milk instead of dry.

  5. Tim Smith

    I was kind of curious about this cereal as a diabetic; thanks for the heads-up about the sweeteners. I have a severe food reaction (not technically an allergy) to stevia.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      You’re very welcome!

  6. Chris Vaile

    I started keto last year and basically flipped a coin on buying this or Cereal School, and the latter won the toss.

    It was okay. I got bored of it quickly and moved on to Catalina Crunch because I was given a bag to try, which I quite enjoyed (and still do) but it’s quite dense. It’s not really a 1-for-1 substitute for when you have THAT cereal craving (i.e., sweet, light airy crunch, classically nostalgic cereal taste). I still keep a back of Catalina maple stocked, but there is no going back to sugary cereal treats after Magic Spoon. The texture was an incredibly welcome surprise, it’s pretty much perfect.

    It’s not AS sweet as the “Saturday Morning” cereals you grew up with, but I actually prefer a bit less sweetness now anyway. The sweetness in MS hits a perfect midpoint for me. And it stays quite crunchy in your milk. Much like both Cereal School and Catalina, the high price/small size issue is offset to a fair degree by the fact that the high protein does fill you up much better than traditional cereal – i.e., with all of them less goes longer in the satiety department.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks a bunch for your helpful review, Chris! SO glad you enjoyed the Magic Spoon cereal!

  7. Pat

    You are kidding! I would not pay $10 a box for fake cereal. Sorry.

  8. Lynn Ellis

    I almost bought a variety pack until I converted the USD to Canadian. Way too much for 4 small packs of cereal. Looks good, though.

  9. Bruno Danner

    Vegetable oil! No thanks. Avoid all vegetable oils- use only coconut- olive or avocado oil.
