Recently, I have been trying out a few different brands of Muesli in India, and I have to say, some of these brands are proving to be quite nice! In the list, here’s the first one up for a review: VLCC Slimmer’s Multigrain Crunchy Nut Mesli.

VLCC Slimmer’s Crunchy Nut Muesli is priced at 200/- for 250 gm. I recently received a package from the brand, and after trying it out for a couple of weeks, here’s what I think about it.

The idea behind this particular muesli is to substitute honey and apple juice in lieu of the processed sugar that we generally tend to get in a package of muesli. This makes it ideal for those who do not want added sugar to their diet, or are trying to lose weight. Although I am looking for neither, I was curious to see how a no-sugar muesli turned out. The packaging is standard, with a list of ingredients written on the side which shows exactly what goes into this muesli – I could see rolled oats, corn flakes, wheat flakes, and plenty of nuts and raisins. I like that a lot!

To be fair, I ate this as a snack when I was feeling hungry, by the handful, or, added it to half a cup of cold milk, and I did not let it soak up and become mushy. I like my muesli crunchy, and although many of you are probably gasping out there, that’s what I like, and I am sticking to it.

As you can see from the photo, there’s a considerable amount of wheat flakes and rolled oats in the muesli, which means, a small amount goes a long way. I used double portions when I was mixing it with milk, and, I have to admit, it kept me filled up for hours. The texture of this muesli is quite heavy, and the crunchy almonds really make a difference – snacking on it was fun!

After adding milk and a teaspoon of apricot preserves (the no-sugar variety) to about 2 scoops of the muesli and half cup of milk, I proceeded to eat my breakfast. If you love fruits, add them to this concoction, and have a heavy and hearty breakfast before going out. The muesli is not overly sweet, and has a nice smell of apple and honey which does add to it. They also have a fruit-laden version, and I am looking forward to trying that one out too.

Although I have seen no significant change in my body weight after I started to consume this, I do believe that the brand has created a rather interesting version of the muesli, which is tasty and quite enjoyable, both by itself or with milk. It is quite decent, although people who have a sweet tooth will need to add more sweetness to it.
