We have never been big cold breakfast cereal people at our house, but now that the kids are getting a little older, they like to have a bowl of cereal every now and then. I have kind of avoided cold breakfast cereal like the plague because of it's reputation for being loaded with sugar. However, lately it seems that many companies are trying to make their cereals more healthy which makes this mama one happy lady.
Through the Purex Insiders program (yes, there are other opportunities outside of laundry products!) I was sent a free box of Honey Bunches of Oats Tropical Blends (I got the Crispy Mango/Crunchy Coconut flavor) to taste with my family. My 3 preschool aged kids are all big mango AND coconut fans, so I knew they would love it. They were all excited to see the box when it came in the mail and were immediately asking me to try it. We had it as a dry snack and all of the kiddos devoured it. I had a couple of bites and I thought it tasted pretty good. As a mother (who is always seeking out healthier options) I like that the first few ingredients listed on the box are whole grain wheat and whole grain rolled oats. I also love that it is full of many different vitamins and contains 2 grams of fiber per serving. My only complaint is that this cereal contains corn syrup, which would keep us from purchasing it in the future. If that weren't a factor, we would definitely get this again. It is something different, something with a unique flavor and the kids really seemed to enjoy it. I love that Honey Bunches of Oats has stepped outside the traditional cereal box and created something that kids and adults alike can enjoy.
