Review & Giveaway : [Me] & Goji Organic, Custom Cereal


I like [Me] & Goji, they make me feel like I'm either: (a) a mad scientist or (b) a genius. Or maybe a little bit of both, but I'd be happy with either of those options. [Me] & Goji makes creating a great, tasty cereal easy with their 60+ ingredients options. Many of those ingredients are organic, raw, vegan and/or gluten free so there is something to suit just about everyone!

Placing my order with [Me] & Goji was a lot more exciting than I expected. Picking out each component to form the perfect mixture to suit my taste was actually a lot of fun! I eventually decided on the following mix:
  • Base: raw, organic 5-grain muesli (barley, spelt, rye, oatbran, wheagerm)
  • Dried fruits: goji, cranberry, strawberry
  • Nuts & seeds: raw, organic flax & macadamia, raw sliced almonds
When my canister of cereal arrived the container was much larger and heavier than I had expected. One of my favorite features of the cereal is that it comes with a customizable label and nutrition information specific to your custom mix. You even have the option of adding a photo to the label for an additional fee... aw, [Me] & Goji gets extra cuteness points for that!


To protect the cereal during shipment, the canister used is extremely solid and durable. It also comes with a freshness seal to keep the cereal tasty and crunchy. When I peeled back the seal I was pleased to see that the container was filled to the top with a gorgeous, yummy looking mix! Gotta love the vibrant colors of the berries!


[Me] & Goji also doesn't skimp on the fruits and nuts, these ingredients are plentiful and mixed evenly throughout the cereal. Flavor-wise, I really loved my mix. I'm a big fan of muesli in general and adore it both dry and cooked- my mix tasted great either way. The sweetness of the dried fruits, the crunch of the nuts, and the fresh taste of the cereal base was wonderful. The only ingredient that I ended up not caring too much for was the strawberries. However, others in my household really enjoyed the sweetness and chew that the strawberries added to the mix.



[Me] & Goji would make an awesome addition to any care package or a really lovely gift. While it would be a little bit of a splurge for me to buy for this for myself more than occasionally, I would be more than happy to purchase this often as a gift item. [Me] & Goji also has gift certificates available- letting a loved one create their own amazing creation will surely fill them with delight... and the great taste of a wonderful cereal!
