Start your day off right with the new Mixit.ca’s healthy custom cereal mixes, delivered right to you!
We all need a healthy start to the morning. No more pecking through the cereal box to find your favourite ingredients! Canadians are waking up to a healthy, delicious and customized blend of their favourite cereal thanks to the online boutique Mixit.ca. The Montreal-based company delivers stylishly packaged tubes, containing personalized cereal mixes from a variety of grains, nuts, seeds and unique freeze-dried fruits.
With a huge success and launch in Quebec just one year ago, Mixit.ca is now launching healthy customizable cereals delivered right to the customers’ door step to the rest of Canada. Cereal-lovers can customize their own breakfast bowls based on personal taste and dietary preferences and restrictions. With over 70 ingredients to choose from, mixes can be gluten free, low in sugar, high in fibre and always packed full of taste!
So when Mixit.ca team contacted me and asked me if I would like to test and review my own customized cereal mix, I gladly said yes! Customized cereals are a new concept to me. Like most Canadians, I have my usual cereal bowl from widely known cereal brands available in supermarkets like Kellogg’s Cornflakes or Cheerio every morning. I have never had the opportunity to try a customized cereal, like the ones available at Mixit.ca, so I instantly became curious about this new type of cereals and I agreed to review them.
The ingredient list from Mixit.ca includes quinoa, hemp, maple syrup sunflower seeds, dried strawberries and more. The website features a counter tool which displays the nutritional value of the ingredients as they are selected. Many of the ingredients are locally sourced, with a variety of organic choices available. Personalized recipes can be named and shared with the Mixit.ca community. Ready-made mixes are also available for those who prefer to try recipes made by the experts. All ingredients are carefully selected based on health benefits and great taste.
When I proceeded to create my own personalized mixed cereal to try and review it, I went onto Mixit.ca and once I reviewed the entire ingredient list, I could choose my favorite ingredients from the available list of cereals, dried fruits and seeds.
These are the steps that I took:
I went to Mixit.ca, specifically on the page where you can select and order your customized cereal, https://www.mixit.ca/en/mix-it/cereal, and I followed the instructions and steps on how to mix, create and order your own cereal.
On the far right of the screen users can see a little tube, they can name the mix anything they like, so I named it Good Morning Victoria. Cute, isn’t it? :) I’ve got my own personalized cereal with my own name. :)
Then I added one base from the Cereal tab, and I selected quinoa.
Then I selected different toppings from the Dried Fruits, Nuts & Seeds and Extras tabs, I could select 4-5 different toppings, so my final choice was mango and papaya from the Dried Fruits tab, sunflower seeds from the Nuts & Seeds tab, and also maple syrup sunflower seeds and white chocolate flakes from the Extras tab.
As I was making my choices, I could see the ingredients being added to the tube on the left with all of the nutritional information.
Then I clicked “Add to Basket” and I followed the next steps to complete the order.
I also could choose my favorite design for the cereal tube itself, and I selected an orange tube.
Once the order confirmed, I received an email with a detailed list of ingredients from Mixit.ca advising that my order has been placed, and it will arrive at my address shortly. I was very excited about the whole thing and I was looking forward to trying it!
A few days later I received my package by mail, and this is how my Mixit cereal tube looks like.
Then I poured some in my milk, about the same amount of cereal as I do with my usual Cheerio or Kellogg’s Cornflakes cereals that I buy from massmarket.
All in all, I love my new Mixit cereal, it’s really delicious! I warmly recommend it as a great breakfast and as an awesome way to start your day. Have a look at Mixit.ca and see what great mixes of cereals you can get!
