You guys might laugh a little, but I didn’t grow up on cereal. My breakfasts usually consisted of eggs, refried beans, chorizo, and tortillas. I am Hispanic and it’s just what ya do! I like to think my Mom just loved us so much that she slaved over a hot stove every morning.
My husband introduced me to an array of cereal when we married and we haven’t turned back. When my kids were old enough to eat table food that was the end of it! Cereal was and will be a “must” in my house. We have a few brands that we trust, but none like General Mills. Besides all the yummy cereals they produce, they also participate in Box Tops for Education program. If you’ve followed my blog for awhile, you might remember my description of myself as a BoxTop Nazi?
Well, my friends at General Mills sent over a cool prize pack of the new Honey Kix Cereal. Inside was cool stuff like a ceramic beehive honey jar, a cool container to keep our cereal fresh, and a travel cereal bowl.
I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve loved Kix Cereal from the very first day I discovered it. My husband, on the other hand, has stated there is no flavor. With the arrival of the NEW Honey Kix, we got a whole new perspective on Kix cereal. It’s sweet, but not too sweet. The airy, lightness of the cereal really gives it that cool “I’m not eating junky” kinda feel. You know what I mean?
My toddler couldn’t get enough of it! The best part is, my 6-year-old asked if I could mix some in his trail mix for his school snack. I sure did! I’ll let you in on three ways to eat it:
1.) Rudy’s way- Eat it right out of the dixie cup, no need for milk.
2.) Zach’s way- Mix it in his trail mix, pretzels, or raisins for snack.
3.) Abby’s way- Put it in a good ole’ fashioned bowl, pour on the cool milk, and drizzle just a little honey on top.
I’ve got THREE, yes THREE, “Sweet & Simple” prize packs to give away to some cool lucky readers, which will include the following:
– 1 coupon for a free box of Honey Kix cereal
– A honey jar
– 2 Honey Kix cereal bowls
– A milk and cereal travel container
– A cereal storage container (this is my favorite)
