Fruity Cheerios

What kid doesn’t love Cheerios?

It’s practically a staple in our home. So, when Nicole from Modern Mom asked if I’d like a free sample of the new Fruity Cheerios to review, I jumped at the chance.

Now I’ll be honest. I love cereals. I could eat them for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and midnight snack . . . all on the same day. My friends tease me that my cereal collection rivals that of Jerry Seinfeld’s. However, I’m more partial to the sugary ones. You know, Lucky Charms, Frosted Flakes, Vanilla Mini Wheats, etc.

So, although I knew my kids would love it, I was less certain about my reaction. Afterall, everyone knows how healthy Cheerios are for you. This one in particular is made with whole grains and 100% real fruit juice with 25% less sugar in each box. Less sugar? Oh oh. I’m in trouble.

But to my surprise, it was actually pretty great! Not too bland, not too sugary . . . just right. I even added it to my regular grocery shopping list!

To help promote this product, Fruity Cheerios and Modern Mom are sponsoring a photo & video contest with the grand prize being a case of Fruity Cheerios and $500 cash. Stop by Modern Mom for more information. Deadline to submit your entry is May 18th.

Good luck!
