They say quality comes at a price, and food is definitely no exception. I can easily pick up a basic name brand cereal on sale, with a coupon even, but sadly, it won’t compare to my newly discovered intrigue: Living Intentions Superfood Cereal (now known as Activated Superfood Cereal).
We received sample bags of the latest flavors of Living Intentions Superfood Cereal at Expo West, and I hadn’t thought much of it at the time. Nice packaging, slightly unique flavors, but really, how would it differ? When I finally broke one open, a few weeks after the show, I immediately found out.
Tasting Notes for Living Intentions Superfood Cereal
It was the unique clusters in Living Intentions Superfood Cereal that enraptured me first. They stay crispy in dairy-free milk beverage yet are more gentle and wafer-like than crunchy granola or flakes. But then the ingredients caught my attention. What should be a simple nutrition statement reads like a who’s who of superfoods. Maca, baobab, reishi, mesquite, nopal – they’re all in there, along with a hearty base of sprouted buckwheat and gluten-free oats.
This was the first flavor that I sampled and it was a fast favorite. The dizzying array of healthy ingredients creates a slightly strange, yet cohesive, perfectly sweet and crave-able taste. I was actually amazed by how bold the flavor was. And yes, it does turn your dairy-free milk pink!

Though I remain loyal to the Raspberry thus far, it was certainly no chore finishing off a bowl of the Acai Blueberry. It was just a touch less sweet, but still bold and fascinating with earthy berry flavors. It left my palate wondering, “what is this?” The ingredients dance around harmoniously in this Living Intentions Superfood Cereal. Shards of coconut, gently sweetened crunchy buckwheat sprouts, bursts of banana, assorted berry nuances (blueberry, acai, maqui, elderberry, and camu camu!), it’s all in there – I could taste it!
