M ~ Muesli

  My whole family knows I absolutely love all things British, in fact it is not uncommon for me to randomly speak with an English accent throughout the day. My love is so deep that I frequently try new foods that are known for being whole-heartedly English, like bangers and mash for example.

  I think it was a few months ago when I tried my first bowl of Bircher muesli and loved it so dearly that I ate it everyday for lunch for quite some time, and I relished every spoonful. Then a few days after I had discovered my passion for Bircher muesli, I came across a package of some healthy muesli in our local bulk food store. Surely you must be able to guess my excitement. I bought the package of muesli with the utmost confidence and prepared it to be enjoyed the next morning.

  That morning I woke up feeling excited and I hustled downstairs and pounced upon my bowl of muesli. I scooped up a spoonful of the surprisingly gelatinous gruel and moments later went shrieking in the other direction. I don't know if it was just the brand of muesli that I had purchased or what exactly it was, but the only way I can come even remotely close to describing the taste of the muesli is that it was reminiscent of walking out into a soggy cow pasture, picking up a rock, and scraping the underneath of the rock into a bowl, and sitting down to eat it.

  If you happen to know of a terrific muesli that you personally love, please let me know, anything is appreciated as long as it doesn't taste like cow pasture.

  1. Muesli is definitely either delicious or a nightmare to consume. Wish I had a recommendation for you. Wonder if there may be a good recipe to try to make on your own so you can customize it and create a version like you enjoyed.

    1. I will definitely look into making my own muesli! I can't imagine any tasting worse than the one I stumbled upon.

  2. My favorite Muesli is Alpen. It reminds me of Switzerland. You can buy different varieties of it as well as unsweetened. Not sure if you can buy it in your area, but worth checking out! I am sure enjoying your blog, but saddened to realize you are already half way through the A to Z challenge!

  3. I don't think I'll be trying museli anytime soon, actually, I am known not to try new food unless I'm certain I would not hate it.

    perhaps your muesli was just a bad batch?

    have a lovely day.

    1. I have no idea what was wrong with that muesli but considering how it tasted I can understand exactly why you don't want to try it!
