Waiter, there's no fruit in my muesli......(A Giveaway!)

Isn't it funny that when we think of muesli, we think of sultanas, dried apricots and maybe some cranberries & the like?

I've discovered a new muesli that has none of the above. Nope, none. None whatsoever.

So......if it has no fruit, then what does it have? Nuts. Pretty appropriate for me, considering I've been told my surname means "hazelnut" in another language. (Macedonian I think, but feel free to correct me - my surname is Leschnik). Yeah, there are lots of nuts in this nuthouse. But I digress.

I was asked to road test Table of Plenty's Nicely Nutty Muesli (fruit free mini clusters), which they tell me is "A delicious blend of whole rolled oats with almonds, cashews and seeds, oven baked with our signature vanilla recipe." (note - no hazelnuts!)










I had mine with milk but you could have it with yoghurt, with fruit on top or even as a dry snack. My kids love having dry cereal as a snack. But I didn't share this one. It's mine, all mine!

  • In keeping with Table of Plenty’s philosophy, Nicely Nutty is delicious AND nutritious!
  • Totally natural and with no preservatives
  • Fruit free
  • Fructose-friendly, wheat free and dairy free
  • High in fibre
It really is super yummy & contains just the right amount of sweetness - you know how some mueslis are super sweet - well, these guys (lady, actually) got it "just right".  And great for those who are health conscious or who have allergies. Unless you are allergic to nuts. Der.

Here's what it looks like:

Go and get some right now. From Coles. It's $4.99. Go on. I'll still be here when you get back.

Table of Plenty was established by Kate Weiss, the mother of a daughter with a rare genetic disorder, who needed to give up her intense full time job to be able to be the best Mum to her Amy that she could possibly be. So she started her own business (clever lady). Kate & her company's mission is to create food that you can trust from one mother to another that fits into our busy lifestyles. She wants to prove that food can be quick, delicious and nutritious all at once.

Today, Table of Plenty specialises in creating unique ranges combining taste and nutrition: a range of international-inspired spice blends and dukkahs, sweet Mini Rice Cakes and deliciously natural mueslis – with a flavour to suit any taste!

I was given the opportunity to try Table of Plenty's Mini Rice Cakes here. And you can check out their website here.

Now for the giveaway. I have a 500g box for one lucky winner. Oh, I should mention that it is a box of this yummy scrummy muesli, it's not my empty box!

To be in the running, simply leave me a comment telling me about the best or worst breakfast cereal/muesli you've ever had. You need to make sure I am able to contact you if you win. Open to Australian residents only.

Competition will close on Friday 25th November at 8pm (that would be Sydney NSW time).

Good luck!

I dont know..I think it might be an empty box..you sound like you love it too much to share! which says alot for a breakfast item!

There used to be a muesli that had yoghurt covered sultanas that I really liked.... many years ago - not sure what it was....

merryl said...

The best muesli I ever had was home made by my mother-in-law. Fruit, nuts, yoghurt coated sultanas, oh and the regular muesli stuff, too. Mmmm yummm!

This looks DELICIOUS and sounds just like what I've been looking for! I am so tired of buying the same cereals, and when I do the weekly shop, I scan the cereal aisle in the hope that somwthing new will grab my taste buds' attention, but nothing ever does, and I end up utting the same ones in the trolley. I must say I haven't noticed this muesli at my local supermarket but will go to a larger supermarket to see if they stock it as it looks like something I would really love to try. As for your original question of best muesli I've ever had, it was on my honeymoon at Port Douglas some 8 years ago.. email kookla123@yahoo.com if I'm fortunate enough to snare this box of deliciousness :)

I actually tried a different kind of muesli from this brand and absolutely loved it. Had a beautiful vanilla flavour and I loved the fact there wasn't dried fruit in it, because they hurt my sensitive teeth. Hate sultanas and have to pick them out of many other brands of muesli, which is annoying.

The worst breakfast I ever had was as a child when little tiny moths invaded our kitchen and got into our cornflakes. My mum did not want to 'waste' them so still insisted we eat them. eeewwwww

The worst cereal I ever had was when I had oats at a friend's house- it tasted so stale. When I looked at the box it had expired over 5 years earlier! Yuck and there's not much you can say when you are at someone else's house. I just pushed it around my bowl and scraped it in the bin when they went for their showers.-russellcathryn at yahoo.com.au

I had a sleep over at my friends house. At breakfast I was asked what cereal I liked. I said muesli. Out it came from the back of the cupboard. When I poured it out I have WEEVILS in my bowl.

Yum - protein!!!

I know it's a bit naughty but my all time favourite cereal is Fruit Loops! It's my guilty pleasure that I share with my girls on school holidays :)
