Cinnamon Burst Cheerios - a review and giveaway


Cheerios have always been a favorite cereal of mine. I love topping them with fresh fruit for a wonderful treat. In fact, almost every version that is available I have tried and enjoyed. Chocolate Cheerios are a current favorite of mine. So, when I was contacted about having a chance to try the new Cinnamon Burst Cheerios, how could I resist.

When the package arrived on Tuesday morning, it was a snow day for the kids and me, even before I opened the box, the kids wanted to know if they could share what we got. I thought this was an interesting request, seeing as how they had no idea what was coming. Once we opened it, they were excited to try it and to check out the Breakfast Chiller that came in the gift pack.

We had a full cupboard of open cereal, so we had to wait to finish one of them to make room for a new box of cereal. So, Saturday morning, the three of us had a bowl of Cinnamon Burst Cheerios for breakfast. My son asked for a small bowl so he could try it. He asked for a second bowl, after deciding that he liked it!

I felt like the cereal had a nice cinnamon flavor level - I have had some others that were stronger, but I felt like this was just the right level. We had ours with slices of bananas. It was yummy.

When I asked the kids what they thought, here were the responses that I got. My son says - pretty good, awesome actually. My daughter says - good.

    Made with real cinnamon, new Cinnamon Burst Cheerios cereal will delight your taste buds! This newest edition to the Cheerios line-up allows you to provide your family with a delicious and nutritious breakfast that contains 20% of the Daily Value of fiber (or 5g per serving), has 9g of sugar, is low in fat, saturated fat free and naturally cholesterol free. Cinnamon Burst Cheerios cereal also provides at least 8g of whole grain per serving; at least 48g recommended daily. A true crowd pleaser, Cinnamon Burst Cheerios cereal is sure to kick-start any morning!


In addition, be sure to check out this fun Cinnamon Burst Cheerios cereal video. You can also check out the Cheerios Facebook page - they currently have a link to get a $.75 coupon for Cinnamon Cheerios.

    I've just tried these myself and I must say they taste delicious. They are a little high on the calories though, so it would be a wise move to limit your portion size.

    I'm the first one up and savor a cup of coffee while listening to morning news. It's the most peaceful time of day for me. My cheerios come later when the rest of the family start getting up.
