Going Bananas, Banana Nut Cheerios® Giveaway

Have you heard, that Cheerios®, is going bananas? They have a great new "flavor" in their Cheerios line, Banana Nut Cheerios®.


Yesterday we received this great gift basket courtisy of Cheerios®(fresh fruit not included).




I don't know about you but in our house both Cheerios® and fruit are pretty big favorites. We'll defintely be using our fruit hanger/basket as I buy bananas at least once a week for my monkeys, I mean kids.
But now we'll also be able to fill our banana craving with the new Banana Nut Cheerios®. They are really good. I have to be honest and admit, I'm a horrible, sugar cereal junkie myself and don't usually touch Cheerios®. Unless they're being shoved in my mouth my a very small child whom I don't want to turn their nose up at them, then I'll choke some down. But these are really good. They're a little stickier than a traditional Cheerios® if you're eating them like we do, dry with our hands, but well worth it. But since we have some pretty new cereal bowls I supposed I'll have to let the kids have some milk on them at least once...maybe!
And if we ever actually have a banana that sticks around long enough to be banana bread matterial, maybe I'll even attempt to make some...don't hold your breath on that one though...

Some information from Cheerios®:

Banana Nut Cheerios® combines the whole grain goodness of Cheerios® with the
great taste of real banana - a breakfast your whole family will love! Even
better, Banana Nut Cheerios® cereal is a good source of calcium and Vitamin D,
and is made with whole grain. It may reduce the risk of heart disease as part of
a heart healthy diet.* Visit www.banananutcheerios.com for discount coupons,

  1. I honestly had not heard of their new flavor. My husband prefers the Honey Nut Cheerios because they're sweetened, but I usually forego the sugar and slice up bananas into the kids' plain Cheerios.
