As a former cereal eater, I was excited to taste test the low-carb marketed cocoa flavored cereal by Magic Spoon. Although, I haven’t personally missed having cereal in my keto lifestyle, I’m always interested in seeing the innovative ways entrepreneurs can adapt products to the low-carb lifestyle. Plus, Scott over at Expert of Equipment (a low-carb fan) asked me to chime in and review this product. Make sure to check out Scott’s blog post for more reviews on a variety of low-carb cereals.
Best Low Carb Cereal? 7 Keto-friendly Experts try Magic Spoon, HighKey, Catalina Crunch & More
Let’s dig into my bowl of Cocoa flavored O-shaped cereal by Magic Spoon.
Like: satisfies chocolate cravings, crunchy, did not get soggy in the coconut milk, shape and size of the Os, delicious taste, no after-taste
Dislike: some of the ingredients would not be suitable for someone following a strict and clean keto or low-carb lifestyle, small serving size
Personally, I need to remain strict keto for my metabolic health and so I stick with total carbs (not net). At 10 grams per serving of total carbs that would use up half my daily carb count in this one serving. I also avoid any manufactured food with the word starch in the label and/or with questionable sugar content (this label says “trace amounts” of sugar in the cocoa powder). THUMBS DOWN.
However, my husband follows a very loose low-carb lifestyle (100-150 grams daily). He really enjoyed this option to bring cereal back into his life. Since I buy all the groceries in the home, I’ll make sure to stock up on this for him. THUMBS UP.

Do you think you’ll try a low-carb cereal?
Sheri Miller says
So, what’s your final verdict? Thumbs up or thumbs down?
Thanks for commenting! I guess I didn’t answer that, did I? LOL
For ME? Thumbs down because of the ingredients and the high carb count for such a small serving.
For my husband? Thumbs UP because he misses cereal and he’s not strict keto like me.
Does that make sense?
Sheri Miller says
Sure does, and I was thinking you would say thumbs down, because of the ingredients. Thank you for responding!
My pleasure! Thanks for reading 🙂
