Review of 3 New General Mills Cereals: Honey Nut Cheerios Medley Crunch, Fiber One 80 Calories Chocolate Squares and Peanut Butter Toast Crunch11:03 PM
It's not every day that I get to try 3 new cereals. I already buy Honey Nut Cheerios and Fiber One, so when I was sent a box of the new varieties of these two cereals PLUS one more, I knew my family would be enjoying breakfast for some time. Here are the highlights of the cereals we sampled:
Honey Nut Cheerios Medley Crunch
What's not to love about honey nut? If you're looking for a cereal that has a bit of variety in texture, but isn't overly sweet, this is it. The little clusters of real almond slices, mixed with Cheerios and flakes, give it a crunch and a kick that keeps the cereal from getting soggy. It's one that I enjoy eating as a bedtime snack.
Fiber One 80 Calories Chocolate Squares
I'm a huge chocolate cereal fan, but I know that any breakfast food that turns my milk into a sugary drink isn't likely good for me. Since Fiber One is on many of the healthy eating lists for many nutrition programs I've tried, this new addition to the family was very exciting. This cereal has all the feel of a Fiber One cereal, but does have a nice chocolate flavor. I can see this as a good dry cereal choice for snacking at your desk, too.
Peanut Butter Toast Crunch
This one was my husband's favorite, as he is a big peanut butter cereal fan. The little "toast" shaped pieces are crispy and sweet. I think of this one more as a treat than a regular breakfast thing. This box didn't last more than a day at our house!
You can find these cereals at most grocery stores. (I found mine at my local Walmart on a special endcap.)
