Start Your Day With Cinnamon Burst Cheerios (Review - Giveaway Closed)

latte with cinnamon
I've been trying to think of a food with cinnamon that I don't like, but I can't think of one. I like cinnamon in cakes, sweet rolls, cookies, you name it. If it doesn't already contain cinnamon, I'll add it. :)

Recently I learned through My Blog Spark that Cheerios has a new variety:  Cinnamon Burst Cheerios.  Made with real cinnamon, this cereal also contains 5 grams of fiber (20% of the Daily Value) per serving. With whole grain and fiber, but no saturated fat or cholesterol, Cinnamon Burst Cheerios are a heart-healthy choice for breakfast.

My husband and I both tasted the cereal straight out of the box and liked it, but didn't love it.  However, when I added milk and fresh banana, I really enjoyed my bowl of Cinnamon Burst Cheerios!

My Blog Spark compiled this video of bloggers who sampled Cinnamon Burst Cheerios.  You might recognize a few of the faces and names:



Thanks to Cheerios and My Blog Spark, I have the opportunity to give away a Cinnamon Burst Cheerios gift pack that includes a box of Cinnamon Burst Cheerios cereal, a family 4-pack of cereal bowls, a travel cereal chiller, and a cinnamon scented candle.

  4. I like to start my day with a cup of coffee. I like to get up before everyone so I am ready to start the day when they all wake up. After everyone is fed, lunches are packed and everyone leaves, then I like to sit down with another cup of coffee, breakfast and the morning newspaper. Thanks!
