The exciting news I was talking about is finally here! This is my very first giveaway so I'm thrilled. I was excited and happy to receive and try Cream of Wheat Cinnamon Swirl hot cereal. I remember when I was young, I had the original flavour of Cream of Wheat. I still remember the grainy texture and I wasn't too fond of it. Fast forward to today, it hasn't changed all that much except I got the opportunity to try their newest flavour, Cream of Wheat Cinnamon Swirl. It's really tasty. I made mine with skim milk, heated up in a pot on the stove and then I added the Cinnamon Swirl package. It was done in about a minute or so. Of course, you can make it in the microwave or heat your water and mix it in a bowl. They also sent me this super cute bowl for my hot cereal. As you can see one pouch of Cream of Wheat doesn't make a lot, but it's filling. I'm not a big breakfast eater and when I tried two pouches, it was a bit too much for me.
The first time I followed the directions on the package, I used 1/2 cup of skim milk. It was a bit sweet for me so the next time I used 3/4 cup and it was much better. It has a nice cinnamony flavour. I also mixed an original and cinnamon swirl together and that made the flavour of the cinnamon swirl much subtler and almost a tad bland. You can add cinnamon powder or fruits to enhance the flavour. Overall, it's something that is quick and convenient and one pouch is only 130 calories.
