Talk about yum! I love anything Kashi makes whether that’s crackers, cereal, granola and etc. I was recently at Sprouts Market and found this Kashi cereal that is whole wheat biscuits! I really love mini wheats so I was hoping this would be a healthier version of that, and it was. I can’t believe how well made these are and all the natural ingrediants is so awesome. Anyways the taste is great! I even have a handful of these for a snack….and for breakfast throw in some raspberries, it makes the best combo!
