When Corin Mullins couldn’t find a healthy great tasting breakfast cereal that addressed her husband’s food allergies and sensitivities, she created her own and called it Hapi Food cereal. At the local farmer’s market on the Sunshine Coast in British Columbia, Corin started selling her bagged cereal and when one of her first customer’s tasted a sample and said “Holy Crap…this is amazing,” the name of the cereal was changed to Holy Crap. That was May of 2009 and since then, the popularity of Holy Crap has skyrocketed (literally, to the International Space Station where Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield enjoyed it during his five month mission earlier this year).
Holy Crap is not your usual run of the mill cereal, as you can probably tell from the name. Advertised as “the world’s most amazing breakfast cereal,” Holy Crap contains 7 real unprocessed ingredients, is gluten-free, sugar-free, nutrient dense, and most of all, delicious.
High in fiber and made from non-GMO certified organic gluten-free ingredients – organic chia seeds, organic buckwheat, organic hulled hemp seeds, organic cranberries, organic raisins, organic apple, and organic cinnamon, Holy Crap is one very nutritious breakfast cereal with each serving containing 130 calories, 6 grams of protein, 4 grams of fiber, 3 grams of sugar, and 6 grams of fat.
Holy Crap comes in a resealable 8 ounce packet that contains 8 servings. Simply mix 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) of Holy Crap cereal with 1/4 cup of lukewarm water, stir, and wait 5 minutes (the chia seeds need time to expand). Enjoy as is or add yogurt and fresh fruit.
The company also makes an alternative breakfast cereal called Skinny B which is a blend of ancient grains that contain 50% more chia seeds than Holy Crap, along with organic hulled hemp seed and organic buckwheat – that’s it. With all the same healthy attributes as Holy Crap, one serving (1 ounce or 2 tablespoons combined with 6 tablespoons of lukewarm water) is 130 calories and provides 7 grams of protein, 5 grams of dietary fiber, 1 gram of sugar, and 7 grams of fat.
Instead of water, consider using almond, soy, hemp, coconut, or oat milk. Top with sliced berries or fruit and enjoy. Or mix with steel-cut oats for another variation. It’s that simple…and that delicious.
Holy Crap is available in about 2,200 grocery and health food stores throughout Canada and the US but can be purchased on-line and shipped for free in the United States at the company’s website. Three 8-ounce bags sell for $34.95, six 8-ounce bags for $64.95 and 12 8-ounce bags sell for $124.95.
The company also sells resealable 8 ounce bags of organic hulled hemp seeds (aptly named Mary Jane) and organic chia seeds called Wild Chia. There is also a Fun Pack which contains 6 packets: two 8-ounce packets of Holy Crap, two 8-ounce packets of Skinny B, one 8-ounce packet of Mary Jane and one 8-ounce packet of Wild Chia for $49.95, shipping included.
