Discover MORVITE and Create a New Breakfast Shake

by Hannes Jakobs

Breakfast - the most important meal of the day.  Don't skip it, they say.  But what if you can't help it?  What if you simply can't afford breakfast foods anymore?

It was only a few weeks ago that I was patrolling the aisles of my local hypermarket, buying amongst other things breakfast foods. 

Ah, look at all the cereals... cute characters on them, cockerels, beautiful colors, chipmunks and beavers and tigers and whatnot.  Cereal is delicious.  How cereals have become part of our lives.   

Then, I look at the price tags.  And for the first time, I come to realise what I've suspected for months if not years:  The amount of cereal in a box really is NOT worth the money you pay for it anymore.  There's just not that much in one box.  3 - 5 servings tops. 

Box of Milo cereal, almost R40???  Look at those things, "Cheerios"??  Are they made from pure gold that the price tag must be what it is?  I mean do they think that only Bill Gates shop here or something?  This isn't friggin' Harrods!! 

That's it;  I know many times before I just chucked it up to what things cost now, and just added it into my shopping trolley and moved on and paid it.  But today, my conscience won't let me.  That's it!!  I'm going to take one last quick look to see what's the least expensive cereal, decide if I might like it or not, and either take just that or leave it altogether and leave.  No more buying 2 - 3 different cereals to have a different variety every morning.  

Then, on a far bottom shelf, looking more like flat bags of something nobody cares for, I spot something.  I can't even make out if it's cereal or not.  They look like bags of cooking maize meal or some kind of medicinal dog food. 

I take a bag and look at it.   What in blazes is this I wonder?  Is it a cereal?  Usually cereals cost anything from R25 to R50.  This costs R8.  Well whatever it is, if it's edible I'll take it because it's slightly more affordable. 

And so, I had discovered Morevite.

Morvite is a powdered cereal.  It contains pre-cooked sorghum, sugar, citric acid (E330), Minerals (Iodine, Iron, Zinc, Calcium [E170], Selenium), salt, sweetener (E954), Flavourants (E551, E1518, E1520), Vitamins (Vitamin A, Vitamin D3, Vitamin E [E306], Vitamin C (E301), Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2 (E101), Vitamin B3 (E375), Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Panthothenic acid, Folic acid). 

No cooking is required;  you simply add milk or water and eat hot or cold.  Easy. 

What I've discovered of course is that it makes a very easy breakfast shake, either alone or with other ingredients like a spoon of yoghurt and fruit. 

And, did I say it's probably the most affordable cereal on the market now?  That's the part that convinced me. 

I'm very happy I discovered this powdered cereal Morvite. 

Morvite is manufactured by Tiger Brands. 

It comes in various flavour names, including vanilla, strawberry, honey, and some others I don't have in front of me  now, though I will say that it's really just the aroma that differs, not really the flavour.  

Deeelicious!
