Review: [me] & goji - Custom Artisanal Cereal

Now here is a cool idea... custom artisanal cereal. That's right! You can design your own cereal on the [me] & goji website. Worried you won't find gluten free options? No worries! When designing your own cereal at, you will be able to to design a cold or hot gluten free cereal complete with your choice of all natural gluten free add-ins!

A message from [me] & goji :
"When creating our company, we placed a heavy emphasis on customization, not just for individual taste, but for those who follow a specific diet. Whether you have celiac disease, a wheat allergy, or you are just trying to eliminate gluten from your diet, we have plenty of options for you.
In the past, gluten-free was synonymous with taste-free; and while gluten-free food has come a long way in providing lunch and dinner options, little has been done in the realm of breakfast."


"At, you design the ideal cereal or granola for enhancing your quality of life. our all-natural and organic ingredients optimize your health and our commitment to sustainability preserves your environment. Every day, we work to ensure that our product and company promotes individual, social and ecological vitality."

My personal [me] & goji experience:

I designed a hot cereal, made with Certified Gluten Free Oats, Dried cherries, coconut, whole almonds, and cacao nibs. I named my gluten free oatmeal creation "Cinde's Country Morning Cherry Oatmeal." [me} & goji added a photo of cherries picked from my very own tree on the label. The taste? Completely delicious! Each warm, chewy bite of this all-natural oatmeal brought a different flavor combination to my mouth. The cacao nibs were a fun addition; they added a roasted flavor to the cereal that worked very well with the sweet-tart cherries. The whole almonds added just the right amount of crunch, and the big shavings of unsweetened coconut added a fun tropical twist to my breakfast. I loved being able to choose exactly what I wanted in my cereal... it was very exciting!

  1. Hi Cinde, that sounds delicious! Do you know who provides their gluten-free certification for the oats and flaxed and flaked base? Given that they store everything in the same facility with wheat, rye, and barley I am very worried about cross-contamination. The same holds true for all their add-ins: they might be naturally gluten-free, but who knows what happens during harvesting, processing, and storage??

    Thank you so much!
