    Muesli: the eternal disappointment

    There's no really nice brand of mueseli is there? We try to eat it because it's healthy, and alternate brands because we keep thinking that THIS TIME we have found the right one. Alpen is too sugary and powdery, no-sugar Alpen is just powdery, Waitrose own-brand is like pet food, Jordan's has just enough nuts and oats to feel like punishment. We did think that Dorset Cereals, despite that babylike copywriting on the box (why do all brands now feel they have to talk to you like a chummy primary school teacher? It drives me mad) were the answer, but you soon get sick of there being too many big "Chilean Flame" raisins and the fake-fruit flavoured oats.  We've just gone back to Waitrose own-brand (we're a bit skint, credit crunch etc etc) weetabix.

    By the way, when did we reach the point where "raisins" had to be "Chilean Flame"?

    Muesli will always be a disappointment unless you give it time to mature. Pour the milk on and leave it in the fridge for an hour, or even better make it before you go to bed and leave it overnight. And end too muesli misery!
