Honey Bunches of Oats Send a Smile Win a Trip Contest (giveaway ends 4/12/13)

I am not a morning person. Not at all. Even after I’ve had my morning coffee and breakfast I’m still not into the whole “morning thing”. If it were up to me mornings would start around 11:00 AM. 🙂

The best way to start your day is with a delicious, wholesome breakfast that your whole family loves. When your tummy is full and satisfied you are more likely to be happy and happiness brings a smile to your face.

Although I do enjoy a hearty breakfast of Eggs Benedict and hash browns (like the kind you get from a diner), I’m perfectly happy with a bowl of my favorite cereal and a side of fresh fruit, and of course – COFFEE!!!

One of my favorite brands of cereal is Honey Bunches of Oats. We purchase a box almost weekly. My favorite flavors are Honey Bunches of Oats with Real Strawberries, Honey Bunches of Oats with Pecan Bunches and Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds. I love anything with nuts in it.

My family enjoys these flavors too.

I don’t put milk in my cereal (blah! I hate soggy cereal). I love that I can eat Honey Bunches of Oats straight out of the box. It makes a great snack and ice cream or yogurt topping too.

Honey Bunches of Oats recently sent me some free product samples and other goodies to review. There was no compensation. I honestly purchase the cereal almost on a weekly basis so I could have easily done a review without any free samples. I just have to make readers aware that free samples were received.

New Honey Bunches of Oats

The samples I received included two of their newest varieties – Honey Bunche of Oats Mango Coconut and Honey Bunches of Oats Greek Honey Crunch. I also received a box of Honey Bunches of Oats Raisin Medley which I have enjoyed in the past.

The idea of mango in my breakfast cereal sounded kind of odd, but I love coconut so I was curious to see how the Honey Bunches of Oats Mango Coconut tasted. To my surprise it DOES have little bits of mango in the cereal (from what I saw they were in the bunches), as well as toasted coconut flakes scattered throughout the cereal. Not only does it taste like a sweet combination of mango and coconut but it also smells like mango and coconut too. The moment I opened the box for the first time that was the first thing I noticed about the cereal.

Honey Bunches of Oats Mago Coconut

Greek yogurt is all the rage these days. I see a lot of things popping up on store shelves with Greek yogurt. Just recently I picked up some chocolate peanut butter Greek yogurt candies from Costco. Mmm! They were good.

The new Honey Bunches of Oats Greek Honey Crunch cereal features two different kinds of granola and little sweet pieces of Greek yogurt throughout. The cereal it’s self has a little bit different taste compared to other Honey Bunches of Oats cereals. I believe that is because there are different granolas used than what is used in the other cereals, giving this flavor it’s own unique taste. It’s very good! It goes great sprinkled on top of regular yogurt as well as in your morning cereal bowl.

New Honey Bunches of Oats Greek

Both new flavors are available along side the other Honey Bunches of Oats flavors.

Starting your day smiling can be difficult – especially during the week or pre-coffee. Let Honey Bunches of Oats with it’s delicious, wholesome flavors help you start your day off with a smile.
