Kashi vs. Kellogg's Mini Wheats

So...this seems to be an odd topic for a blog post huh?

I LOVE the Strawberry Frosted Mini Wheats by Kellogg's but I was certain that they were not the healthiest choice b/c of all the sugar "frosting"! They are especially good with fresh sliced strawberries or even fresh blueberries.

I found these Cinnamon Harvest mini wheats by Kashi (I LOVE Kashi products) and they are DIVINE! They actually remind me of those Quaker Cinnamon Oatmeal Squares which I too love!
However, after scanning the nutrition information (I currently have both at home right now), there is LITTLE difference. You can actually eat 4 more 'biscuits' of Kashi as the serving size is 28 biscuits to the 24 biscuits of Kellogg's. Oh, and you get a little more protein from the Kashi. The calories and fat and sodium, etc., were all comparable.

So...with this being said...I no longer feel 'guilty' eating the frosted mini wheats...I could be eating something worse like Lucky Charms...I do love those though!!

Have you done any recent product comparisons?? I'd love to hear about them :)

Happy Monday :)
