Pros: best taste, natural, no food dye, good packaging
Cons: not organic and not widely available
Taste was hands down the biggest pro. Every single person at my house LOVED this cereal, even my hyper picky cereal loving boyfriend. In fact he felt the cereal was priced way too low for such awesome taste and usually he'll go for the cheapest cereal.
- All of Three Sisters cereals are 100% made using renewable wind energy via Windsource.
- No food dyes.
- Three Sisters recently raised over $70,000 for Haiti relief.
- Most Three Sisters cereal products are Kosher certified.
- Three Sisters hot cereal is a good source of Omega-3 and is naturally trans-fat and cholesterol free.
- Three Sisters is a smaller, not large mass-corporation owned company.
- No high fructose corn syrup – the cereals do contain corn syrup, but it’s not quite as processed as HFCS.
- The company notes that they, “Work continuously to reduce waste and water use, and recycle everything we can.“
- Very adorable packaging that produces less waste than most other cereal packaging. The company uses bags, not bags in boxes to eliminate a ton of waste. You can't recycle the bags but you can send your bags to TerraCycle after you're done.
- None of their products, minus their plain oatmeal, are organic which IMO was the biggest con.
- You can't get this cereal online or at any store other than Whole Foods, which is fine if you live ner a Whole Foods, but we don't.
- The Sweet Wheat and Marshmallow Oaties are not vegetarian or vegan. Both contain pork derived gelatin.
- You can't recycle the packaging.
Overall I wish the cereal was organic and more available, but it's so yummy and from a mostly eco-friendly company, so if you have a Whole Foods near you I'd still recommend it.
