LA JOLLA, Calif., Dec. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Kashi, the premier natural food and lifestyle company, has introduced two USDA Certified organic cereals, Kashi® Berry Fruitful and Kashi® Blackberry Hills™, which bring together real organic fruit and whole grains, for a delicious breakfast to start your day.
Berry Fruitful features shredded wheat biscuits with a flavorful berry filling made with real, organic fruit, including Concord grapes, apples, raspberries and strawberries. Blackberry Hills pairs organic whole grain rice and wheat flakes with tangy organic blackberries for a taste that's sweet and delicious.
"We're excited to introduce two scrumptious additions to our growing list of USDA Certified organic cereals that will make eating well easier," says Keegan Sheridan, natural food and lifestyle expert at Kashi. "We've always believed that nature makes the best-tasting ingredients, like the hearty whole grains and luscious organic fruit you can see and taste in our Berry Fruitful and Blackberry Hills cereals."
