Fun Honey Kix giveaway!

Here's a super awesome giveaway! I gave two of these away this week on my other blog and thought I would give one away here, too!

General Mills has announced a great new twist on Their Kix cereal!

Honey!

I have to be honest with you. I have never been a fan of Kix cereal. Yeah, I know it wholesome goodness is something I should praise it for but it has definitely lacked in the taste category in my opinion. When I was contacted to taste this new cereal and host a giveaway on my blog I was skeptical to say the least about how much I would enjoy the taste.

I received the host's package in record time and I was excited to open it up and take a look at the goodies inside. The honey pot is simply adorable, and the on-the-go bowl will come in very handy.
The Kix box was brightly colored and eye catching with a honey drizzler in the top corner. The 'Kid Tested, Mother Approved' label still runs across the middle. Although it looks incredibly similar to the original Kix box it is different enough to keep me from getting confused in the cereal isle.

We decided to open the Kix right away and have a dry sample. I heard a lot of "me, too?s" behind me as each of my children waited to have their taste.
I am happy to admit that I was wrong! Honey Kix are surprisingly delicious! Not only did I enjoy them, my kids have taken a liking to them, as well.
I didn't just think they were okay, I have found myself going back to the box for little snacks throughout the day. At least they aren't horribly bad for you like most of my snacks (think chocolate and caramel).
Kix doesn't have that stuff in them but are pleasantly and perfectly sweetened. Yes, these Kix do contain sugar, 6 grams worth, but I find it to be a much healthier alternative to the common sweetened breakfast cereal buffet.

General Mills has generously donated some fun prize packages for 1 lucky winner. This is no doubt one of the most adorable gift sets I have had to give away. Like I said before, the honey pot is super cute!

Each prize package includes:
  • A coupon for a free box of Honey Kix cereal
  • A honey jar with drizzler
  • A set of colorful cereal bowls
  • a container to take your cereal and milk on-the-go
  • A great container to keep cereal fresh at home.

This looks yummy & I have to say, the honey pot totally caught my attention because my daughter's birthday party this month will be a bee theme!
As for breakfast memories, gosh. Not much to share. I guess one fun memory was everytime we had a sleepover at my friend Danielle's house, her mom ALWAYS made chocolate chip pancakes in the morning. YUM-O!

My favorite breakfast memory is when my mom would make oatmeal. She would always make toast with it and put WAY too much butter on the toast. I relish the memory because I sparingly use butter now and I remember the good old days of too much butter. :)

My favourite breakfast memory is of my dad using our ancient griddle to make pancakes in whatever shape my brother or I asked for...our initials, dinosaurs, you name it.

When my youngest son went off to college, he called home to tell me how "deprived" he was as a child because he had never eaten sugar sweetened cereals at home. It seems at college they offer a LOT of sugar sweetened cereals for the students to choose from. We chuckle about it now because now that he is older he is again choosing healthy cereals to eat.

My favrotie memories had to be when my mom made omlettes for us! They were so good & still are! Ham, cheese, green peppers. She always flipped them perfectly too, way better than I can!

My favorite childhood breakfast memory is Sunday morning waffles. My father would get up early every Sunday and fix waffles before we all got ready for church. This was the only time my father ever cooked anything. TRigell at aol dot com

Just found your blog from Money Saving Mom. I like regular Kix so would love to try this since I am a honey lover. My favorite childhood breakfast memory is being at my grandma's who lived on a farm. She made big breakfasts with so much to choose from--bacon, eggs, homemade bread and jams, oatmeal etc.

Okay, first I have to say I found you by doing a search for how to use Register Rewards. This was extremely helpful, thank you.

I actually have many great memories of breakfast. I guess I will choose one. My mom used to make farina when it was cold. She would spread it out on a plate and shake cinnamon sugar over it. My brother and I would then use our spoons to go along the edge as it was very hot.

My favorite memory is when we would stay at my grandmas she would make all kinds of cute pancakes for us. I was always wanting a purse to be made! Thanks.
