My favourite cereal
I’m a child and one taste of this cereal with some fresh grapes and I was hooked. A healthy alternative and tastes better than every sugary cereal. I don’t even care about eating healthy, I choose this cereal because it tastes elite.
Bad puffed wheat.
Since the decision to change the puffed wheat a while back it still has not changed so time again to stop buying it for another period so the company might get the hint again and maybe change it. As for the other ingredients the product is good. Hoping this review might get to someone in the company and eventually get it to 100 percent again.
Definitely a winner in my house.
This is great cereal without needing sugar and not being too sweet like most cereals out there today, as well as not getting soggy. And I like blackcurrants better than sultanas in cereal. Support Aussie products.
Purchased in August 2020 at Coles Supermarkets for $5.00.
Way too many hard little currants
Way too many hard little currants dick develops then sells out they cut it back to a price
Purchased in September 2020 at Woolworths Physical store for $6.00.
Aussie breakfast for Aussies
A great mix of healthy cereals to start the day. Just the right amount of nuts, fruit & cereal - adding milk & yoghurt completes the meal. Knowing it is 100% Australian makes it even better.
Purchased in May 2020 at Woolworths Physical store.
After years of looking, Ive finally found the perfect cereal
It is instant, has a great texture and taste - not too sweet and not bland. Goes well with yoghurt and fresh fruit. Perfect for me!
Purchased in January 2020 at Local fruit market.
My choice of the cereals for the contents and quality
I really like this as the bush foods taste amazing and I don't eat carb based cereals and sugar cereals and wheat cereals or oat based ones at all, so this one is the only way I eat cereal, thanks !
Bush foods fantastic idea but......
Great product using bush foods loved the idea of eating our great bush food but. .. was so disappointed at the small amount of actual bush food it contains and there's way too much sugar and hidden sugar in it.big pic of honey very deceptive imagine if that pic was replaced with pic of sugar... Tut tut tut Dick....your slipping .
Purchased in January 2020.
Enjoy this cereal
I have only recently started to have this cereal and like it as its not too sweet
Purchased in December 2019.
Bush cereal- super disappointed
Was once my fav cereal. It used to be summery and tropical. Full of flavour and dried fruit and macadamias. Now it's literally a bunch of different grains & some currants.
Purchased in August 2019 at Coles Online for $5.00.
Not happy Dick
Please please please bring back the old one my husband and I absolutely loved it the new one is ok but not the same to much puff weet not enough nut and fruit
I will certainly keep buying this product from Dick Smith. Simply add milk and it is delicious. I also found that it is very filling (I wasn't hungry again half an hour later).
Purchased in March 2019.
My family loved original recipe of Dick Smith cereal. Was an all round favourite. New recipe to much puffed wheat no nuts and frankly a bit tasteless. Why the change. Would have happily paid more for original recipe.
Purchased in March 2019 at Woolies for $5.00.
Looooove it so much.
I have never tasted any breakfast cereal like it..your bush breakfast cereal my fruit and yogart I am in heaven.
As I did not try the old version of this product I cannot compare. Sadly, manufacturers change/go out of business so new ones have to be found. I really enjoyed this product and certainly don't find it tastes like cardboard unlike Uncle Tobys Shredded Wheat which I used to eat and now find totally unpalatable. The weight is the same as other brands except they are not wasting cardboard by filling it with air.
Love this cereal! There is a slight difference but otherwise it’s the same! I love that profits go to charity and that it’s up to 93% Australian! If you keep making it I’ll keep buying it!
Why call it BUSH FOODS when there are no bush foods in it???
This is false advertising. My wife is European and thought she would try some Australian bush food, only to find that there are no bush foods in the cereal. Could not find 2% of the wattle seeds in it.
I used to admire Dick Smith for trying to do the right thing but I think his wealth has changed his attitude.
Don't lie to us Dick!
Is anyone still buying this stuff?
Is anyone coming back for seconds? This used to be hands down the most delicious cereal around. Thankfully version 1.0 was still around just over a year ago when I was going through my morning sickness. It was the only thing I could keep down. If I was given version 2.0 back then, I'm sure I would have projectile vomited the contents right back in your face!
Bring back the old one!
Bush foods was the only relatively nutritional food my partner loved to eat. Now his snacking has turned to chocolate and sweets and has told me not to bother buying it again. Disappointing when you spend near $6 a box and there are so many other cereals available much cheaper.
Once my favourite, but no more!
What a pale imitation of what this cereal used to be! Every ingredient is the same beige colour and dry, dusty texture and I'm yet to find any of the promised mango Even the amount of currants seems to have been halved! I can only guess that cost cuts have driven this change. So sad. I'll keep checking the cereal aisle in the hope that the company sees sense and returns to the previous recipe, which was lovely! But I won't be purchasing this again.
Questions & Answers
does anyone know how many "Weight Watchers " points apply to the 'Bush Foods Breakfast' ?
Are you taking your Australian bush food breakfast off the market? Woolies is no longer stocking it, do enjoy this product, thanks Kerri.
How much sugar per serve in Bushfoods Breakfast cereal? Thanks.
9.3 gms from what I can see.
Have done some research and find that it is equivalent to approximately three teaspoons of sugar per serve. This of course takes in the fruit content as well. Certainly higher than oats but also more palatable.
Thanks Monica..........that helps me balance my sugar intake per day. Meant to have 6 teaspoons per day all up, so better do my sums!
