I'm not a huge cereal eater like my husband, Gus, and son, Buddy. I swear, those two could eat cereal 2-3 time per day - and sometimes they do! But the one cereal that we all like is Honey Bunches of Oats. So when I had the opportunity to try the new Honey Bunches of Oats Morning Energy cereals, I was really excited!
The new Honey Bunches of Oats Morning Energy cereals are packed with whole grains, protein, and fiber to provide you with the energy you need to get you going in the morning. A single serving gives you more than 2/3 of the recommended daily whole grain, 10 grams of protein (when eaten with 1/2 cup of fat-free milk), and 5 grams of fiber.
There are two delicious varieties - Cinnamon Crunch and Chocolately Almond Crunch - and you don't have to sacrifice flavor in order to get a nutritious breakfast! Honey Bunches of Oats Morning Energy Cinnamon Crunch is made with crunchy cinnamon clusters, while Honey Bunches of Oats Morning Energy Chocolately Almond Crunch has yummy chocolate morsels and crunchy almonds.
The Cinnamon Crunch cereal had a lot of cinnamon flavor. I liked the consistency of it a lot - it was very crunchy and stayed crunchy in the milk. This is definitely a cereal for cinnamon lovers! But for both me and my son, Buddy, there was just a bit too much cinnamon taste - almost to the point of being a little bitter. I didn't add any additional sugar or sweetener to the cereal.
The Chocolate Almond Crunch was everyone's favorite! I thought I wouldn't like it because I expected the chocolate to taste like a cheap candy bar. Boy, was I wrong! The chocolate is soft and easy to eat - and it has a great chocolate taste. I loved the crunchiness of this cereal as well - it also stayed crunchy in the milk.
Even though Buddy is 24 years old, I still worry whether or not he's eating healthy foods. If he's going to eat a lot of cereal, I would prefer that it be a cereal that provides him with a decent nutritional value. And he loves it, so it's a win-win situation. He's already asked me to buy more! Honey Bunches of Oats Morning Energy is a wholesome, delicious cereal the entire family will love!
