If you have read my blog for a while you know my family loves cereal. While I do not eat as much of it any longer because of my diet, I do still like a portion controlled size every once in a while and this new Hershey’s Cookies ‘n’ Crème cereal (Disclosure: The information and prize pack have been provided by General Mills through MyBlogSpark. Opinions are my own as always) is a delicious treat for me. For Hubby though it was not just a treat, he gobbled up the box quickly and did not even give our son a chance to try it!
The flavor is yummy! The cookie flavor is a nice rich chocolaty taste and then you have the crème flavor which is a light vanilla sensation. The cereal is little round puffs and has a nice texture. They stay crunchy in milk for a decent amount of time too, which is good because I hate soggy cereal!
A serving of Hershey’s Cookies ‘n’ Crème cereal has 14 grams of whole grain – that is a good thing. There are also 9 grams of sugars in a serving, not necessarily “good for you” but manageable along with the rest of a healthy breakfast from time to time. I know some of you are not into giving your kids cereals like this and that is okay, but there are still lots of cereal eating families out there and I think this one is one of the new ones that is really good. Breakfast really is so important to start our days and our kids. We need to fuel up and get our bodies and brains ready for a fun filled day!
A bonus for me – there is fun stuff on the back of the box! Yes, I am an avid reader of boxes, especially cereal. I love when they have interesting things on the back, even if it is for kids I do not mind. Those fun boxes are part of my life as I grew up reading the backs of cereal boxes since I was a kid. Admit it, you like it too!
