We've just finished a box of Berries & Cherries from Dorset Cereals, and we're about to start on a box of Cranberries, Cherries & Raspberries.

We're not sure that the people of Dorset can be described as 'forest-dwelling primates but they make fantastic cereals. And, the packaging is brilliant too.

I *love* Gorilla Munch. Used to eat it straight out of the box when I was a student :)

I love special k bliss! its got raspberries and cranberries in it so it's good stuff for forest dwelling primates and is great with an innocent smoothie for breakfast!

I tried some cereals from Dorset too (Super Cranberries and another one I can’t remember). I was in Waitrose in a hurry and just grabbed the most natural looking packages around before zooming away. I only read the package at home. I found out that, apart from the added sugar in the cereals, the company was also promoting a consumer competition with 4X4s as the prize. Honestly. I can understand that maybe 4X4s are the best way to get to some places in the countryside and possibly even the seaside. Still, I can’t see how a company claiming to respect the environment could offer such prize. They are not making their way into my shopping bag again.

I normally have different flavour combinations from Southern Alps – some are really good with warm milk or milk substitute on cold mornings (not that we’ve had any of those recently).
But my absolutely favourite is the Very Berry Muesli from Alara. Hand made in the UK with apparently proper green credentials (www.alara.co.uk) and... I hadn’t tried any cereal as delicious as theirs before. Can’t have enough. It’s not easy to find it but every mouthful is worth the hunt.

I dont know about which type of cereal but it has to have
APEricots in it...

You can't go wrong with Lucky Charms. It's the stuff leprechauns eat for breakfast!

My dog, a self-confessed primate wannabe, is quite partial to special K. He says it's because he wants to look after his figure but I've noticed his variety of choice is the one with the chocolate bits. And the chocolate bits is all he eats. In fact he doesn't like cereal at all. Just milk and chocolate.

I absolutey relish Mapletons Fru Grains!
My Dad introduced me to this cereal only a few weeks ago. Apparently he remembered the stuff from childhood and was suprised to find it still available. It has a box design that clearly hasn't changed in at least 20 years and the stuff looks like pieces of bark. But he'd had quite an addiction to it and implored me to at least try a piece. And blooming heck if it wasn't delicious!
Made from dates, prunes and various cereals (but all magically formed into these bark pieces),it doesn't actually physically have bits of fruit bobbing around in the bowl - that would be weird.
It looks to be pretty good for you too! I can't get enough of it!!

Ooo Gorilla Munch looks yum! I want some :-)
