Neverland Vegan High Tea

Image
 I won a gift card for Neverland Tea Salon and Foodie Buddy suggested we go there because they have vegan high tea. Regular price of the tea is $50 per person which for Vancouver is a reasonable price. We were a little late to arrive as we commuted by transit. The place was very crowded but we were seated and given the menu. The server explained that we could have as many teas as we wanted but you could only one at a time. I ordered an apple black tea for the first one they also have a variety of plant milk choices I requested almond milk.  I ordered the Vegan high tea and Foodiebuddy ordered the traditional. Our platter came with all the vegan items close to me and the other items on the other side. The server explained what everything was but I still had to look up the menu online.  I started by trying the scone. The vegan ‘cream’ tasted like the coconut whipping cream you get at the grocery store. We were only given one container of jam to share but foodie buddy let me have it. The

Cereal Tasting



It has been years since I have bought any Kellogg’s or General Mills cereal. I stayed in a hotel that had breakfast included they had these small cereal boxes so I thought I would try them. I notice the ingredients have changed since the past. The Kellogg’s ingredients are pretty simple now grains, sugar, some are using fruit and turmeric for colour some have artificial colour. There is a separate section on the ingredients for vitamins and minerals


The first cereal I tried was FruitLoops. It taste exactly how I remember crunchy, slightly sweet, with a slight fruity flavour. It’s really delicious. 

The next cereal I tried was Frosted Flakes. I was expecting it to be sweeter other than that it tasted exactly like I was expecting. It wasn’t insanely sweet but definitely had sweetness to it. The flakes had a nice crunch to them and it wasn’t insanely sweet but does have a sweetness to it. This wouldn’t be my first choice in cereal but I liked it. 

The next cereal was corn flakes. I would definitely use this for breading in the future. They are crispy and the flavour is mild. I am tasting without milk but I later added almond milk and a banana it was really good.

The next cereal was Cheerios. This is my least favourite so far. This is the first cereal that is not under Kellogg’s brand. It tasted really bland and the texture is dry. It also has the most ingredients. I could tell this was a different brand of cereal from the taste. When I added a sweetened plant milk it tasted much better. This cereal doesn’t taste how I remember it.




The final cereal is raisin bran. It is good the flakes are really crunchy even with milk they have a nice chew to them. The flakes have a very light sweetness and the ratio of raisins to flakes is perfect. Although this cereal is known for helping if you are constipated it actually tastes really good. 



Bonus cereal Oatmeal 

Do you consider oatmeal a cereal? I had a pack of plain oatmeal also from the hotel breakfast. I first tried it with hot water and it was very bland. I added dairy free eggnog to it and it was very good.
