Diana Chan September 25, 2014 product

If you’re not familiar with Holy Crap, they are a breakfast cereal made of organic chia, organic buckwheat, organic hulled hemp seeds, organic raisins, organic dried cranberries, organic apple bits, and organic cinnamon. It was pitched on Dragons Den years ago and became one of the most successful companies coming out of the show. The couple who created Holy Crap is from Sechelt , BC.

It’s a great product for people with a lot of dietary restrictions.

I was browsing the aisles at Safeway and we saw Holy Crap was now introducing single serve portions for $3.99 each. They sold out of their usual 8oz bags, so M and I opted for this since he’s never tried it before. I always urged him to give it a try but he never got excited until he saw the Dragons Den episode.

Inside you have 2 tablespoons/ 45g of the breakfast cereal. Pretty simple but it’s quite pricey for just 2 tablespoons.

Just follow the instructions and you can’t go wrong. Mix with yogurt, milk or non-dairy beverages.

I mixed it with Vanilla Yogurt and it’s really good. I love the crunchy texture of the chia + hemp seeds and the sweetness of the cranberries. It’s a quick morning meal when you only have a few minutes to put something together.

The product isn’t cheap, but it sure tastes great. There are other alternatives if you love this cereal but don’t want to pay the prices. Other brands have similar products but priced slightly cheaper, but not by a lot. You can make it yourself too if you can buy the ingredients separately.

Holy Crap introduced me to this type of breakfast food and I still eat it every morning!
