I don't think I have ever had a bad tasting product from Kashi. This cereal is no exception. From the front of the box you would think this might taste like Cheerios, but you would be wrong. The taste is much more substantial - the pieces have a more satisfying crunch and the cinnamon is a welcome flavor. Not sure about the pricey part though... Where I live all the cereals in the Kashi line (and other natural cereals) are the same price, if not cheaper, than those by Kellog's, General Mills, etc. Sign up on their website and they are always sending out coupons and free samples for all of their products.
I loved this cereal, my 16 month old was stealing it out of my bowl...if you have the right coupon and sale its great otherwise I do agree it can be pretty pricey!!!
I tried it for the first time and I love it! I would describe it as being the grown-up version of Honey Nut Cheerios. Kashi tends to be on the more expensive side so I love when I have coupons and find them on sale.
