Nestle Gold Crunchy Oat and Corn Flakes– Detailed Review
The flakes were packed in a foil pouch which was further enclosed in a carton. The pouch is non-resealable, therefore the oat-corn flakes must be transferred to an air-tight container once opened.
These are a lighter shade of gold. We saw a combination of round and oval-shaped flakes that were marginally thicker than regular corn flakes.
The ingredient list includes degermed maize (corn) grits (64.7%), extruded whole maize (corn) flour (17%), whole oat flour (10.3%), sugar, minerals, iodized salt, malt extract, glucose syrup, acidity regulator (339iii), emulsifier (471), antioxidant (307b), and vitamins. Malt extract is suggested to be a healthier alternative to refined sugar as it has a higher antioxidant content and is a rich source of soluble fiber.

Before moving to the tasting aspect of the review, we’d like to mention that this is a pretty good cereal, in terms of nutrition. It delivers on the claims. Moreover, this contains 2 grams of sugar per serve and has a marginally lower carbohydrate content.
We tasted the oat-corn flakes dry and with lukewarm milk.
Stage one- With a bold crunch and subtle sweetness, these flakes taste quite good.
Stage two- On adding milk to this, we were delightfully surprised to notice how the crunch was retained. Moreover, the sweetness is low but these aren’t bland. Although you can add a sweetener if you wish to, the mild sweetness of the flakes eliminates the need to add extra sugar.
