    Fake muesli

    As I type we are eating breakfast while watching Peppa Pig (seagulls again, see below), and my dear wife has just admitted that yesterday in a moment of weakness she purchased some Jordans raspberry-flavoured Country Crisp cereal. She was now eating it. "I bet it's full of sugar," she sighed. "It's not muesli at all really, is it?"
    "Not really, dear," I agreed, sighing to show that I was on her side.
    "But it's so nice."
    "Oh, absolutely."
    "If only there was something between this and Dorset muesli."
    "That'd be great."
    We sighed together. The museli quest continues.

    Hello, my name is Carol and i'm the marketing manager at Jordans. I just read your quest for the perfect 'proper' muesli which made me laugh! I'm sure we must have something that you would like! If you email me what your perfect muesli would be I'll find our closest match and send you a sample.
