Is fancy muesli worth the price?

Good morning potato fellows,

I’m having muesli this morning and I just wonder, what kind of cereal brands you prefer having. Recently I’ve run out of my Dr. Oetker Vitalis, so I decided to buy some new fancy muesli. (because payday and stuff)

mymuesli has caught my eye for quite some time, because as you can see they have pretty boxes that you can actually reuse, but it was always the price that had kept me away (7.90€/box).


Anyhow I got chocolate banana (for my soul) and figurefit (for my body) and I tend to mix both for breakfast (for body & soul of course). I really like the fact that they put lots of dried fruits and seeds in it, because I’m the kind of person who can’t eat much oat unless it is mixed with other interesting ingredients. And again, I love the boxes.
So far, my favorite flavor is blaubeer (blueberry), and I’m probably going to rebuy it soon, despite it being twice the price I pay for Dr. Oetker…

So to be honest, I do think you can also find good muesli for a lower price. In my experience 3€-muelis are usually fine, and I will definitely try some other brands too, to be able to make a full comparison. (Any recommendations?)

BUT, if you think about it, how much do we pay for fun on average? I mean, a cocktail  (even non-alcoholic) is already about 6-8 €, in a bar even a coke costs 3€. The money we spend on a friday night could probably buy us cereals for half a year. I paid 23€ for Beauty and the Beast (popcorn + drink included) without blinking an eye. And don’t we all (don’t lie!) buy random stuff we don’t really need? We spend fortunes on all kinds of things daily, so why should we hesitate when it comes to our well-being?

So, if it’s not the end of the month (even then payday is around the corner, so don’t be thrifty) don’t think about 7.90€ and buy the muesli with the fancy box, if that’s your motivation for eating healthier 🙂
