Nibbles: Carman's Rounds

Carman's colour-coded boxes of breakfast muesli and muesli bars are a staple in many kitchens. But for those who are too time-pressed to fit in even a small bowl of cereal before they leave for work, Carman's now has an answer: breakfast rounds.

Marketed as a "breakfast replacement", the rounds come in classic fruit & nut or apricot & almond varieties. They are GM free and contain no preservatives. The rounds are more like a biscuit than a breakfast dish; they taste like muesli but have a dense biscuit texture. Each round is individually wrapped and easily transportable for breakfast on the run. I found them too sweet and too small to satisfy me for breakfast (unlike the muesli) but the rounds made a good snack during the day.

Carman's is an Australian-owned company, with the factory based in Melbourne, and no preservatives, genetically modified ingredients or artificial colours or flavours are used in their products.

Previously available on Qantas flights, the breakfast rounds are now available from Coles and Franklins stores.
