Cinnamon Cheerios Fan Club

Digg!
Hey everyone, I hope you are having a great week. I think that spring is just around the corner. I noticed daffodils blooming in a neighbors yard.  And I have to admit I'm getting the itch to go and visit a local garden center.

Since spring is about new life and beginnings, I'm excited to share with you today about a new product I recently got to try.  Just when you think Cheerios couldn't come out with anything new and better, they knock my socks off again.  My oldest son, Sawyer is president of the Cheerios fan club.  On a personal note, Cheerios will always have a special place in my heart because Sawyer has a speech delay due to his very premature birth (he was 1 pd. 12 oz at birth). We have struggled and fought for every word and "Os" was one of the very first words he could say to communicate to us that he wanted Cheerios to eat.  So, not only do I feel good about giving them to him because of their low sugar and whole grain goodness, but it also helps he can ask for them.

So when the folks at MyBlogSpark sent me an invitation to try these new Cheerios, I was ready to sign up.  We got our box and I put them out on the counter the first morning. I got busy putting milk in the boys cups and I turned around to find that Sawyer was trying to open the box himself.  You've gotta love that 4 year old "I can do it myself" attitude. As you can see, he ripped off part of the box in his eagerness to get to the Cheerios.  He was so giggly when I told him to hold the box so I could take a picture of what he'd done. LOL  Fortunately I was able to intervene and help before I had Cinnamon Cheerios all over the place.


I have to admit that as soon as I opened the box, the first thing I did was put it up to my nose and took a deep breath.  Ahh, that cinnamon smells was so good!  And then when I tried a bowl I was hooked.  I like it because it has a great cinnamon taste without being overpowering.

Monday I blogged about the Kroger Cart Buster Savings Event taking place at the Kroger family of stores. When you are going out to Kroger, be sure to put some Cinnamon Burst Cheerios in your basket.

I'm happy to say that the good folks at MyBlogSpark and Cheerios have a prize pack for you to try these new Cinnamon Cheerios as well.  And this prize pack is awesome.  It contains a family 4-pack of pack of cereal bowls, travel cereal chiller and cinnamon scented candle. I was so excited when I received all of these goodies.
