We are huge cereal fans in our house and not just for breakfast. Cereal has become a popular snack around here for after school and before bed as well. Of course everyone in the house has their favorite kind of cereal but if there is one brand that we all agree on, it's Honey Bunches of Oats. Don't believe me? Here is a glimpse of our cereal stash right now. I am pretty sure we have every variety of Honey Bunches of Oats there is!!
Recently while we were at the grocery, we saw a display for a new type of Honey Bunches of Oats and we were SO excited! Honey Bunches of Oats Greek looked fabulous and we couldn't wait to try it. It was pure coincidence when we had an email that same day asking us to try it out!!!! The kids get really excited when they learn we are going to get to try something new but I think it was me that was most excited about getting to try this delicious breakfast treat!
Made with REAL greek yogurt and 2 varieties of granola, it was love at first bite for our family. The crispy whole grain flakes and touch of honey is just the icing on the cake for this delicious cereal. I was a little leery and wasn't sure the kids would like it because they aren't fans of Greek yogurt but I was surprisingly wrong. This is my 9 year old daughter's go-to cereal now every morning before school! She loves the "crunchies" as she calls them. I didn't even tell my husband that it had Greek yogurt in it and I had to laugh when he asked me what the "yummy sweet crunchy balls" were in the cereal!
Nutritionists recommend eating three or more servings of whole grain foods per day (16g per serving) and Honey Bunches of Oats Greek offers a whopping 33 grams per serving, providing over 2/3 of your day's Whole Grains!!! It's a little higher calorie than I typically like my cereal to be with 230 calories in 1 cup but it's worth it with its 12 essential vitamins and minerals and 5g of protein per serving!!!
I am seriously so in love with this cereal that we have bought two boxes already this month. It's THAT good! Grab a box at your local grocery today and your family will thank you. Also be sure you like Honey Bunches of Oats on Facebook and follow them on Twitter @HBOats!
