Day 2 Jamaica trip 2024

I’m writing this post a few weeks after returning to Ottawa but the next few days I wrote while I was in Jamaica. It was a very busy trip but this was a day I got to stay at the resort. Jewel Paradise Cove while my friend figured out our plans for the remainder of the week.  The resort posts the activity schedule on the app, on tv’s in the room, and on a screen in the lobby. I had seen that there was a resort tour at 11:00. I have stayed in many resorts and it usually the company that you booked with doing these tours. I liked that there was no need to wait for a specific tour rep and the hotel was doing this. My friend was out up and early for the garden tour. I slept in and went for breakfast at 10:30. I wanted my friend to come in the hotel tour with me because I have no sense of direction but we later discovered we weren’t getting each others text messages and I thought she was still on the garden tour.  I had received my friends text that she was disappointed there were no plantai

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.
