The official vegan packaged breakfast food and cereal review (to be updated).
Please add reviews and additional breakfast/cereal products here. Let me know if anything listed is not vegan, and why.
Hot cereal bowls
Cream of rice
I thought this was bland even with a little cinnamon and apple. (monkey7)
Steel cut oats
Is this the one with hash browns and such? If so, YUM, my FAVORITE breakfast ever. (until Loopers cooks for me) (Meggs)
YUM! I've never been a big fan of breakfast foods, but this is amazing. I just microwaved it, but i think it would be extra delicious if you cooked it in a skillet with a little oil (sarah)
24 whole wheat bisks
48 whole wheat bisks
55% fruit muesli
Scottish porridge oats
Cocoa crispy brown rice
Crispy brown rice gluten free
It's crispy like Rice Krispies. (hh)
Crispy brown rice no salt
Crispy brown rice with mixed berries
Hole n' oats
Brown rice crisps
These are pretty good, but I always have an issue with Puffins and staleness. It's like as soon as I open the box, they lose some of their crunchiness. I get kind of tired of the coarse corn thing these have going on as the box goes on too... (fb)
They're all right. (fb)
This reminded me of fruit loops. It was reall y sweet (to me). The cereal bits were stuck together from all the sugar. Ended up in the trash. If you like sweet cereals, this is more your style. (monkey7)
They're these crunchy puffy little peanut butter pillows with a subtle cornmeal taste. Lowfat. Not too sweet. (saskia)
These are the shit. Z and I will buy multiple boxes of these at a time, because he will sit down and eat a whole box of them for dinner. The texture is perfect, and they're big enough that you can carry them around and snack on them throughout the day. Oh, and my dogs are CRAZY for these too. They hear us open the bag and they come running into the kitchen and acting crazy. Now that's a recommendation. (veganrun)
Same issue with staleness, but these have the advantage of sweetened, greasy peanut butter. Actually, the grease is a little weird in milk, but fine if I'm eating them on their own, which is what happens with half the box...(fb)
I had to stop buying it because I would eat too much of it. (jkl)
Multigrain cereal bar
This is good for sometimes, but it's obviously really sweet. (AC)
Oops all berries
Good for when you want a sweet cereal. The boxes are always huge. (AC)
Peanut butter crunch
This is pretty heavy. It's sweet + a lot of peanut butter. It does taste good, but a bit much. (AC)
That stuff is like crack. I don't even eat it with milk, just straight. Yummmmmm. (veganrun)
While this is undoubtedly good, it's hard to get past the 4.69 for a 10oz box. Very similar to cinnamon toast crunch, with a slightly more wholesome taste. Leaves very good cinnamon milk. Nice for a treat, something I'll look for sales. (AC)
French vanilla almond granola
Fruit and nut granola
Maple brown sugar granola
These are pretty good, but then I realized that they actually have more calories than the cinnamon crunch cereal, so I realized they were a waste of my time, as the cinnamon crunch is the greatest cereal ever made. (veganrun)
Healthy living porridge oats with wheatbran
Malt crunchies cereal
Dixie Diner's Club
Apple berry granola
Peaches and cream
To go plain
To go with sugar
Golden Temple Granola
35% fruit muesli
Fruit n nut
Maple pecan dream
I think this is the granola that we used to get in bulk. It's amazing. I wish we still had access to it. (AC)
you can often find it in the bulk bins. It's so good I eat way too much of it when I have it. (berryraw)
Fruit medley: This reminded me of fruit loops. It was reall y sweet (to me). The cereal bits were stuck together from all the sugar. Ended up in the trash. If you like sweet cereals, this is more your style.
Puffins, Peanut Butter

Nature's Path Organics
I'm not actually crazy about this--it's just too bland for me.
Aside from the super cute box, I'm not totally in love with these. They're definitely all right, but I don't get a strong chocolate OR pb flavor from them. They're very...okay.
These just make me want Peanut Butter Puffins. Poor substitute!
I have to remember to look for that CF cinnamon crunch next time!
These are pretty good, but I always have an issue with Puffins and staleness. It's like as soon as I open the box, they lose some of their crunchiness. I get kind of tired of the coarse corn thing these have going on as the box goes on too...

I like these. Very pleasant sweet cinnamon thing, better than the WF shredded wheat (texture is better). Though a little sweet, still definitely has a healthy thing going on.
I don't often like cereals with fruit chunks in it, but this is good. The flakes are very crunchy and "fresh."
Good ole rice crispies. The same thing as any generic version. Works for makin rice krispies... yeah
Nature's Path Organic
Fine - light and crunchy. Closest "regular" analog is Kix. I don't have this often, only because the other envirokidz things have flavorings, and this is plain. Still good though.
YEAH KOALA KRISP. It's not as chocolaty as cocoa pebbles or other brands, but it's like made from whole (brown) rice grains instead of flat blebs o rice, which I like better in texture. Not oversweet. A favorite.
Does not taste particularly peanut buttery or chocolaty. Not bad, but don't expect Reese's puffs.
I like these. They have a light peanut butter flavor, and are otherwise the same-ish as Gorilla Munch. Doesn't have the greasiness of pb puffins.
Favorite. Sweet, apple, cinnamon. Good stuff. NO OFF FLAVOR.
Also has NO OFF FLAVOR. I don't like this as much, because names like "flax plus" are not as delicious as "apple cinnamon". Also, the flax is whole, which I guess at least tells you how much flax is actually in it, but not very useful for digestion.
Pretty good, and actually has bits of nuts in it! I like apple cinnamon better, but that's how it always is for me. NO OFF FLAVOR.
YEAH. I don't mind the lil blueberries. LIL BLUEBERRIES ARE ADORABLE. I guess the multiple, different things in here is maybe weird texture-wise, but I like it. Vaguely healthy, still tasty.
I did not detect the flavor of ginger or cranberry here. Son, I am disappoint.
Not as tasty as blueberry cinnamon.
Crunchy corn bran
Indeed crunchy, but corn bran is kinda off-puttingly healthy, though you wouldn't think of corn as TOO healthy, so... not much motive to eat this.
YEAH CINNAMON LIFE. This cereal gets soggy pretty quickly, and has a fairly sweet center. EAT FAST
Just like the cinnamon, except no cinnamon. Still gets soggy quickly. Cinnamon is better.
I hoped this would be as delicious as Cracklin Oat Bran, and not so much, but still good. Still, I think I prefer oatmeal squares more.
Good. Sorta healthy seeming, still sweet. I can get sick of this sometimes, but overall a good cereal.
Natural toasted oat bran
Works great for muffins (like the JOVB oat bran ones). Haven't used it for anything else.
Dislike. Cereal should be sugary and give me diabetes. I feel like I'm eating miniature hay bales here.
I was excited to get a vegan frosted wheat, not because I particularly liked frosted wheat, but because that stupid stuff always has gelatin, so having a vegan version is somehow triumphant. I didn't like it. Not super crunchy even when first opened, sugary glaze dissolves immediately to make the milk super sweet. Just, eh.
yo AC, do you know if Kellogg's Cracklin' Oat Bran is vegan? I can't find ingredients on their website. Are Post cereals all non-vegan (I don't remember)?
I found the ingredients. It says vitamin D, but does not specify what type. Is Kellogg's one of the companies that always uses D3, like General Mills? I get these peeps mixed up.
Pretty good. Not always a fan of granola, but I like this one. It's fairly sweet, has a little bit of cinnamon, generally pretty hard to dislike. Despite the name it's got no pumpkin pumpkin, but pumpkin seed.
Nah, I knew it had no pumpkin flesh when I saw the pumpkin seeds on the box. Just when I think of "pumpkin _____", I think pumpkin-flavored. MAYBE IT COULD HAVE DRY PUMPKIN IN IT IDK.
At least it has pumpkin something. Unlike the pumpkin spice Silk. -_-
