Honey Bunches of Oats Review

For years I have avoided cereals that appear to target the "older" crowd. I just did not want anything to do with the words health, nutritious, or fiber. Then I became that "older" person. I am not sure when it happened, but it did. 
About a week ago, I received a box of Honey Bunches of Oats cereal in the mail. What was I going to do with an entire box of this cereal. I have a young child and two other adults that are picky eaters. I thought this box may sit and decompose on the top of my refrigerator. It was time to step up and do what moms do best, torture their kids (and husbands).
I started with my 22 year old daughter. She is the most vocal and happens to be the pickiest of the bunch too. I poured her a bowl at breakfast time and told her to just try it. If she did not like it, it was okay. I just needed an honest opinion. Then the four year old crawled out of bed and into the kitchen. He wanted a bowl of cereal too. (I got my second guinea pig!) I poured him a bowl and sat him at the table too. 

Fast forward about 15 minutes...... I did not hear a single complaint out of either of them, just that they wanted more. After both of them finished their second servings, I had to pick my jaw up off of the floor. A four year old eats Honey Bunches of Oats? When did that happen?
The entire box of cereal was gone in a few days. My entire household enjoyed the sweet taste combined with the crunch of the "bunches." That must mean they are really not that good for you right. Actually, wrong! They have the same calories per serving as the Original Special K cereal! Check out the comparison here.  Finally a nutritious cereal that the whole family will eat. There are currently 10 different flavor varieties of Honey Bunches of Oats. 
  • Honey Roasted
  • Almonds
  • Strawberries
  • Raisin Medley
  • Vanilla Bunches
  • Pecan Bunches
  • Cinnamon Bunches
  • Blueberry Banana
  • Peach Raspberry
  • Just Bunches Honey Roasted
There is a flavor that will appeal to everyone in my household. I am happy that I finally found a cereal that I can feel good about serving to my family that even I enjoy.
