Muesli at Pret a Manger

Okay, this is obviously a lazy person’s breakfast (well, what, besides homemade breakfast is?) but this one’s really silly. Thinking that I should try something new yet again at Pret, I picked up the muesli bowl which is only 1/3 filled with muesli (and coincidentally, the kind I don’t like).

Nothing against normal muesli, but I just prefer toasted clusters of muesli like Jordan’s Crunchy Muesli, versus flat and lifeless pieces of oats, dried fruit, nuts, raisins and the like. The staff of Pret a Manger will fill up your bowl with either skim or full fat milk, and that’s about it. You’ve then got something you could have easily made at home in under a minute, but are now paying HK$20 for.

In the end, I added my own stash of Kashi GoLean cereal to the mix, just to fill it up a bit more. Not filling, not tasty, and definitely NOT recommended! πŸ™

      I’m pretty sure I’ve seen it in higher end supermarkets like City’Super or you can try Nature’s Village!

    FYI the type you like is NOT muesli, it’s called granola and it comes in crunchy clusters. It also has a ton more calories if anyone is watching their calorie intake

      Thanks for your comment and clarification! Granola is my guilty pleasure πŸ™‚
