New Honey Bunches of Oats Tropical Blends Review and Giveaway



After waiting a couple of days to open my box of New Honey Bunches of Oats Tropical Blends I received as a Purex Insider, I was greeted with the smell of sweetness.

I was not expecting such a wonderful smell.  I am someone that does not eat a lot of cereal, but does know the importance of eating breakfast.  A couple of times a week I will find time to eat cereal for breakfast. 

The first spoonful was a little surprising to me.  I am a fan of Honey Bunches of Oats, but I did not expect such sweetness.  I did not have any expectations, but when I ate the first spoonful I surprised by something.  I am not sure if it was the sweetness or the fruit flavor of mango flakes combined with real coconut shavings and coconut flavored granola clusters.  I then realized, subcontiously I may have expected the taste of the original Honey Bunches of Oats.  After a second or two of adjusting I was good to go.  I actually like the New Tropical Blends.  While eating, I had to look at the box.  The first thing I always look for are how many calories per serving.  I am sure I poured the right amount that would equal 120 calories. I am not a calorie counter, but my servings are usually small.  Next, I always check to see how much iron, there is 9 essential vitamins and minerals including 60% daily value of iron.   Surprisingly, there is 6 grams of sugar.  You would never guess because the cereal is sweet and tasty.  I am happy to say, I ate my cereal and was well satisfied.
