One of my favorite things about living in London is the great aroma coming off of the Kellogg’s plant some days. Last week I was reminded of that as I left a building on Dundas Street and was overwhelmed by incredible sweet and slightly smoky aroma hanging in the air. It took me a few minutes to realize it was cereal. One of my favorite things about being a member of the Kellogger’s Network for bloggers is the fact that I get first crack at some of the great new products shortly after they are developed. Last week we found these, Special K Morning Shakes. There are four per package and they come in Vanilla, Chocolate and Strawberry flavors.
We tested the Strawberry flavor. It was tasty, smooth, light, and a nice addition to breakfast or lunch. The yummy Morning Shakes are made with skim milk and 190 calories per bottle. For me, as a meal replacement or with a tiny meal on the go that might be alright, but 190 calories every day in a bottle would otherwise be worrisome. Luckily, they aren’t intended to be consumed daily, just as a supplement on days when you are too busy to have a full meal. Special K helps support healthy weight loss with its lower fat products. The skim milk in Morning Shakes is lighter and makes it feel less filling and less dense as a shake also. I enjoyed that lighter feel to the beverage. It’s definitely not powdery, chalky or medicine-y.
Nutritional information notes that there are 10 grams of protein and each bottle is a source of 12 essential nutrients. Special K Morning Shakes are a good choice for meal replacement and easy to grab and go, carry with you and/or pop into a lunchbag or purse. I enjoy traditional Kellogg’s products, and have for most of my life, but I love the fact that they keep trying to build new lasting favorites for my entire family. That’s why I keep buying Kellogg’s brand.
