Cereal Spotlight: Quinoa Crack Cereal

 

 

100% gluten free, super snacking goodness.

This cereal exists because you and I are tired of big corporations feeding us sugar for breakfast, making us feel sick and stupid.

This website exists to get around the big, impersonal food distribution and retail chains. Here on the web, me (a quinoa grower and cereal producer) and you (a person who will eat the quinoa cereal I've produced) are in direct contact! Isn't that cool? I would hate to have to go through those big chains to get to you.

If you don't have any friends and want to buy just one box at a time, ask your favourite local independent grocers to stock Quinoa Crack; suggest they buy it on this website by the 8-pack. We like little shops.

About the company

It’s not every day that two heart surgeons get into the food business, but over 20 years ago that’s exactly what our dads did. Motivated by what they saw in their practice, our parents set out on a mission to encourage sensible eating.

They knew ingredients had to be nutritious and simple, that everything had to be delicious, and that their products needed to be super simple to make. While the world has changed since our little family business first got started, our focus remains true to our dads’ vision and we work every day to make them proud.
