Win some dark chocolate goodies from Dorset Cereals!

Welcome to the darker side of breakfast cereals..the dark chocolate side that is!

The last couple of weeks I’ve been tucking in with glee at breakfast time to decadent and deliciously dark Chocolate Granola with coconut, from Dorset Cereals.

I really love the chocolate to coconut to crunch ratio, is perfectly balanced, very tasty and I don’t think it will hang around long now it is opened….who needs popcorn!

They also sent me the Chocolate Granola & Macadamia Nuts version which is also lovely but its coconut all the way for me!! 
As gorgeous as they both were straight from the box, I mixed the coconut version with some home made crumble topping, topped a fruity base consisting of tinned mandarins, sliced mango and eating apple (was really good in a different sort of way!) and then served with some home made chocolate custard. The boyfriend declared it the best crumble I’ve made, high praise in deed! Since then I also made a rhubarb crumble with a little of the chocolate coconut one in the topping and it was also very well received! Unfortunately neither were photographic beauties but it tasted delicious!

 Both of the Dark chocolate granolas are made with Fairtrade 70% cocoa chocolate (= extra yum for dark chocolate lovers!) I am a definitely a dark chocolate girl so this really floats my boat, so to speak! All my guests have been also having a dip and loving both of them!

Additionally both are also Vegetarian Society approved and the cardboard packaging is unbleached and made from 100% recycled fibre, good for the environment as well as our bellies!

If dark chocolate tempts you too, enter the competition over at Dorset Cereals website and you could win yourself a Jute bag with 3 boxes of each of the chocolate granolas and a Dorset Cereals bowl inside!!

Whilst you are there, don’t forget to vote for me in their Little blog awards!


  1. Great idea for using the granola. I just kept on dipping my hand into the box!

  2. Mmmmmmm, lovely! I bet they would be nice mixed into flapjacks too.

  3. Mmmm I'm with Jacqueline on that one! Although your crumble & custard sounds delicious!


Thanks for stopping by my kitchen! I love to hear your thoughts and comments on my recipes!
