Honey Bunches of Oats Tropical Blends Review and Giveaway

As a Purex Insider, I was sent a box of Honey Roasted Honey Bunches of Oats Tropical Blends to try. However, all of the opinions expressed here are my own. The Tropical Blend is Crispy Mango and Crunchy Coconut. The cereal is also made of crispy flakes, crunchy granola clusters and a touch of honey. Those flakes give the cereal 10 grams of whole grain per serving! Honey Bunches of Oats Tropical Blends only has 6 grams of sugar per serving, compared to Honey Nut Cheerios which has 9 grams of sugar per serving. Another added benefit is the cereal is heart healthy because it has 0 grams trans fat, 0.5 grams saturated fat, and 0 milligrams cholesterol. It also has 9 essential vitamins and minerals, including 60% daily value of iron. The cereal is also WIC eligible. If you want to find out more information on this cereal go to Honey Bunches of Oats Facebook page.

My husband, 6 year old son, and I all tried the Honey Roasted Honey Bunches of Oats Tropical Blends. When I first opened the box and took a whiff, the cereal smelled delicious, with a very sweet, fruity smell. I couldn't wait to try it! The cereal tastes delicious! I really like the texture combination of the crispy flakes and crunchy granola bunches. The cereal has just the right amount of sweetness. My 6 year old son liked it a little bit, but didn't ask for any more. My husband also liked the flavor, but he brings the cereal in a plastic bag to eat in the car on his way to work and he said he ended up with cereal all in his car; so it's probably best not to eat this on the go. All 3 of us don't eat our cereal in milk, so I don't know how it is in milk. We will probably buy this cereal again.
