Hey friends! It’s the long awaited Giveaway #1!
So a while back, the lovely people at Alara sent me some of their mueslis to review.
All of these are:
- Made with no added sugar, salt or fats
- High/very high in protein and fibre
- Contain ‘superfoods’
- And most importantly, delicious!
As you may know, breakfast is my favourite meal of the day! I love waking up in the mornings, knowing that soon I am going to be chowing down some delicious food! So I figured what better than a yummy Breakfast Based Giveaway?!
First up, I tried the active muesli:
I don’t think I’ve ever seen such an awesome ingredients list! I had this pre-spin class, and it certainly gave me energy and kept me going for hours! And it has 16.4g of protein per 100g to boot!
However, this was my least favourite of the three. As you all know, I have a major sweet tooth, and this wasn’t sweet enough for me, but obviously that’s down to personal taste. I also found the texture wasn’t that great- not crunchy, and not enough different textures.
Overall though, it still beats most other mueslis I’ve tried! And I’m going to try adding my own chopped dried fruits to this, as I bet that’ll make it taste amazing!
Next to try was the Date with Cocoa.
This was really delicious! Unlike the active one, the texture was great, with big chewy date pieces and crunchier cocoa nibs. It completely satisfied my sweet tooth, and is very healthy too (high in protein and fibre).
And last, but certainly not least, the Goji Berries and Pineapple muesli.
This was my favourite! SO yummy! The goji berries were such a genius addition, as they took the taste and texture to a whole new level! Not to mention that they’re a superfood too! And the pineapple went with it perfectly! I’ve never had kamut flakes before, but they were great too! Perfect texture and top marks on taste.
Alara offered to send 10 boxes (yes TEN!) of my favourite flavour to the winner of a giveaway! It was a tough call between the Date with Cocoa and the Goji berries and Pineapple, but I went with the latter in the end.
So get ready!! Ten boxes of Goji Berries&Pineapple organic muesli up for grabs! *Note* If you are gluten-free tell me in your comment and you can still enter to win the Active muesli if you like, which is gluten free.

This giveaway is open to bloggers and non-bloggers alike, but sadly is UK only! I will be doing an international giveaway soon though for all my overseas friends!
Good luck to everyone! I will be randomly selecting a winner at 7pm on Wednesday 26th. Exciting times I know…!
So GO people GO! And have a great week!
