A Chocolate Cheerios Review & Giveaway!

As you can probably guess from the blog title, Casey is a big fan of Cheerios. They're the one thing I can always get him to eat.. even when he's going through a picky stage.. which is often lately. So I was very excited to be given the opportunity to host a Cheerios review and giveaway on my blog!

General Mills sent us the following prize pack, which included ; A box of Chocolate Cheerios, a cereal bowl, and a chocolate spa pack including ; a bar of chocolate soap (no, you can't eat it unfortunately, but it smells good), chocolate bath salts, chocolate body wash and a bath puff.


Since Casey loves Cheerios, and loves chocolate, we knew he was going to love the new Chocolate Cheerios! Well, we were right.. they received the famous 'mmmmm', and they quickly became his breakfast / snack of choice. He often has dry Cheerios as a to-go (or at home) snack.. so we do a mix of plain Cheerios, Honey Nut Cheerios and Chocolate Cheerios.. you can even add little pretzels, raisins!
I don't usually eat cereal, but I tried some too, with the new cereal bowl.. and went back for seconds - yum!

With all the goodness of Cheerios, plus a great chocolatey flavor.. what is not to love?! 
100 calories per serving, low fat, saturated fat free, cholesterol free, a good source of calcium and vitamin D, and made with whole grain and real cocoa!

Check out the Cheerios Recipes page for great recipe ideas, like these yummy Chocolate Peanut Butter Cereal Bars!

  25. Starting the day off with a smile means everyone says Good Morning and then sits down to a good breakfast together. :) My girls are big Cheerios fans as well and these chocolate ones look like they'd be a huge hit! :D
