Kelloggs has some new amazing products!
I was super stoked when I saw the big box from Kelloggs at my front door and it looks like Kelloggs has been busy making cereals that are going to make your taste buds jump for joy!
Inside the box was a box of Brown Rice Rice Krispies (Gluten Free), Cinnamon Corn Pops, Mini-Wheats Centres, 2 boxes of NEW Rice Krispies Granola Squares (Strawberry & Chocolate) and a brand spankin’ new All-Bran Bar flavor of Orange and Cranberry! They also sent a long a book of coupons with lots of savings!
Let me tell you, my kids were excited!
In all honesty, I was immediately drawn to the All Bran (which I adore) and when I’m having a sweet tooth, Corn Pops. I normally stick to low sugar, high fiber choices but–c’mon, there’s days when you want something sweet! Also, you may want to read over some of the myths of cereal in my last post.
It took us a little while to try out all of them and we also shared with my folks and brother and sister. I knew that my Mom would love the Mini-Wheats and my brother the Corn Pops. While we were altogether, I tried out a bowl of Corn Pops. They were absolutely delicious, with just the right amount of sweetness and partnered with cinnamon. Definitely a satisfying treat for me! I also paired it with Almond milk and I was good to go!
Now, the girls!
Gabs decided on Mini-Wheats Centres, they were crunchy and filled with wild berries. Of course they are lightly frosted and it was definitely her pick! We’ve also sent a granola Rice Krispies square every so often with her to school, I like the fact that she is getting grains with the granola.
She wanted a second bowl but, unfortunately had to wait until next time! Like everything, leading a balanced life is eating balanced meals in moderation. I can also bet my Mom being a grandma probably snuck her a few extras.
The joy of amazing and caring grandparents!
Mimi, well–I gave her the choice to try out all 3 cereals. I opened them and let her reach inside to pick which one she wanted. She picked both the Cinnamon Corn Pops and the Mini-Wheats Centres but, she ended up ditching the pops and asking more of the Mini-Wheats!
So, we know which she chose!
Hubby, like me, enjoyed the Cinnamon Corn Pops and my mom–well, let’s just say that box of Mini-Wheats stayed in her cupboard! So, the Mini-Wheats Centres are definitely a hit and a favorite already. My dad is very simple and he likes his cereals to be more plain and he enjoyed the Brown Rice Krispies. They are also Gluten Free and he is a bit intolerant to gluten so this was perfect!
What was my favorite?
The Cranberry Orange All Bran bar!
I can’t even tell you how amazing they are.
They are crunchy, citrus-y. The tartness of the orange hits you and then the sweetness of the cranberries balances it perfectly. They are also really chewy and it made for great texture. I loved it and these didn’t last long. I shared a pack with my mom and she’s over the moon with them too. I think everyone enjoyed these, except–I shared and kept the rest for myself.
I did let Gabs and Mimi try a bar and of course…
Kelloggs didn’t disappoint.
Which NEW Kelloggs product would you try and why?
