New at Wheatsville

What exactly is muesli? Muesli and granola are actually made of similar ingredients but the big difference is that muesli is raw and granola is usually toasted. Because granola is often toasted in some kind of oil and has sugar or honey added to it, it’s usually higher in fat and sugar than muesli.

Dorset Cereals believes that life is too short to settle for second best and that simple, honest pleasures are often the most rewarding, which is why we love their muesli. It’s a simple blend of oats, barley flakes, fruit (up to 50% of the mix!), nuts and seeds-– and that’s it. Natural ingredients are carefully blended together for a really tasty breakfast that contains whole grains and is a good source of fiber, with no added sugar. Simple, but then the best things in life usually are. 11.43oz, Reg. $5.29
