product review: vigilant eats super food cereal


This week I was lucky enough to review Vigilant Eats super food cereal and was very impressed with the product. Delicious, cool-looking, gluten-free, organic, simple, easy - me likey. What you get is in the name: a disposable cup (neato folding spoon included) filled with a blend of stuff making up a super food, oat-based cereal! It's got happy, clean ingredients like cacao nibs, organic oats, hemp and maca. Several of the ingredients are raw as well. All you have to do is add some water (there's hemp milk powder included already, these guys are smart) or your fave milk of choice, and munch away.


I used some coconut milk we had in the fridge and was delighted. I was pleased to find it wasn't too sweet, which was my main worry. I actually wished there was more in the cup! The one photographed here is an espresso maca mulberry mix. Some of their other flavour combos are goji-cacao, maple coconut vanilla, and maca double chocolate. NOM! Seriously - try them out for a super quick power breakfast or snack and see what you think.

My favourite thing about this product is the company behind it. Their philosophy is that we the people have the right to demand - and deserve - the highest quality, healthful, sustainable foods we can get our hands on. Cheers to that!

  1. Ah these look lush! I don't suppose they sell overseas? I couldn't find any info on that on their website, so I suppose it's only for US/Canada.

    Hi Emily,
    Was this stocked in a store near you, or did the company send you samples? I've just had a look at their website and it seems pretty expensive when you live outside of the USA. Wah, they sound amazingly wholesome and delicious :( :(

  7. Try Abe's Market website, they always have some sort of sale going on. I tried these super food cereals myself and was absolutely delighted with the taste and nutrition. Use 'bonus15' on Abe's market to get 15% off, if there isn't a sale going on already. Below is the link to the Vigilant Eats multi-pack.

  8. I had one today - the chocolate one - and I added hot water to it. I don't know if that was the problem, but it tasted like vomit. A few people in my office tried it and confirmed something was amiss. Will the hemp milk powder turn gross when exposed to hot water?

    1. :S oh dear. I don't think that should've changed the flavour - maybe it just doesn't agree with your palate?

  9. I had the coconut maple today and it was delicious. I got mine from whole foods but you can buy them online at Amazon and directly from the company website at vigilanteats.com I will deffinatley grab these again on the go as you only need cold water! So easy!
