Note: like all gnom-gnom posts, this isn’t sponsored (at all!) and I bought just the chocolate one to try out. I’m getting frosted next, as I totally see some legit keto ‘rice krispie’ treats in my immediate future!
High Key Keto Cereal
A Play On Puffed Rice!
If you’re a frequent instagram scroller in the keto crowd, High Key’s brand new cereal has been hard to miss. Fact is, most peeps even claim its the best keto cereal to date (yup, even better than the beloved Magic Spoon!).
My (very honest) thoughts? It is indeed veeery good!
Is it perfect? No… but you’d honestly be hard pressed to tell it’s actually keto. No funky aftertaste, solid ingredients and a seriously good and crisp texture. If we’re getting picky here (and you know I am!), it’s slightly chewy in the end; but you also have to be ‘looking for it’.
Price is comparable to the other keto cereals out there, with the positive that you can just buy one to try out on Amazon (and it’s delivered with Prime).
Any negatives? Lol yes, the serving size is tiny imo! We’re taking about just 1/2 cup or 28 grams (pictured is double the serving). And I’m also pretty sure this is the reason why net carbs come out to zero, as cocoa isn’t carb free. Now I’m not saying they’re deceiving us but, similar to heavy whipping cream, my guess is that it has a slightly higher carb count at larger quantities. Does it matter? Probably not, still suuuper low carb!
Is it better than Magic Spoon or Cereal School? It is definitely better than the old formula of Magic Spoon, but I’d say its comparable to the 2.0 version released just a couple weeks back. And it’s definitely better than the Cereal School I tried… but I also heard they’ve since released version 3.0. (You can read my in depth review of those two over here!).
Oh, and one more VIP positive: it stains the ‘milk’! A definitely must in my book.
