I actually like the stuff, and in its most 'healthy' form too (oodles of
nuts, no added sugar, and packed in a brown paper bag, straight from the
local wholefood shop- I am an old hippy!)- the trouble was, after I produced
my offspring I went off milk in a big way and was thus deprived of the
pleasures of eating muesli for years. Then I got over the yuck factor (the
idea previously made me shudder) and tried it with orange juice- and it's
lovely! Sweet and tangy at the same time. Yum.
