Good tasting if you can get past the fruit rocks. This cereal was on at half price so we bought it to give it a try, and after trying it (and now also seeing the other reviews here before writing), I can understand why.Overall, the biggest issue is the rocks-for-fruit that is in this blend.My first bowl of this, on my first bite, I really thought I had bitten a rock.I took it out, and it was... orange. So, it was actually a rock disguised as an apricot, I tried to give it a better chew and slowly applied some chewing pressure, and well, it did chew.I don't mind soggy cereal but even leaving the remainder of my bowl untouched for a number of minutes to soften and re-hydrate the fruit, it really didn't make a significant difference. The fruit lumps were really hard, and at risk of damaging teeth for those who might have weak teeth.Now, I wouldn't say that I'm a slow eater by any means, but I felt like one as I had to chew much more carefully, and with the fruit, really work them to break them down to eat. It was not a good experience.I honestly can say that if this cereal was made to be stored in an underground bunker for nuclear fallout purposes, it would be perfect. The fruit would be well preserved and maintain its integrity. However, as far as 2020 is going, we aren't there yet, unless someone at the Woolworths plant is Nostradamus the Second. Would I buy again? Probably not, the risk to my teeth is too high. I'm not even wanting my family to have any of this either. I had a second bowl of this this morning before I wrote this, and the experience was so bad thats why I decided to write this review. Only got the extra star because its actually quite healthy if you discount the rocks. Maybe you can practice dry gold panning the cereal to get out the fruit rocks...

Nice, but not yummy yummy. Was a filling breakfast. Just didn’t feel that I was excited to want to eat it everyday. As previous posters have stated the fruit is a little tough. If left in the milk it probably would help it but who likes soggy cereal?I won’t be repurchasing personally but overall ok for its purpose.

Tasty Breakfast. This was quite a tasty breakfast cereal and a good price, however the fruit was really hard.  Due to this issue, we wouldn't purchase it again.

Tasty. I’m not usually a breakfast person, but thought the Woolworths Daily Balance cereal was ok. The dried fruit was a little tough, but still tasty overall.

Healthy breakfast. overall a reasonably tasty and nutritious blend of fruits and flakes. Would be nicer if the fruit was a bit softer

Quite nice. I actually found the cereal quite tasty and for the price would definitely buy again. Yes some bits of the fruit were a little hard but not that bad.

Healthy option breakfast. I loved the cereal only for one setback, mainly the apricots were hard even when milk soaked for a bit, and some but not all the sultanas were hard too. Other than that it is quite nice

Cereal great. I would sprinkle the cereal over my porridge and the flavours together were really  tasty.  I did not find the fruit hard at all. I will buy again

Not the best. The flakes were just a standard flake, but found the fruit to be extremely hard and not pleasant to eat.  Will not buy again.
