Remember the Family Breakfast Project challenge? Well I am happy to say we are still making time each morning starting the day with breakfast, coffee or juice and conversation. Recently I had the opportunity to try the New Multi Grain Dark Chocolate Crunch Cheerios® with my family. Who doesn’t like more breakfast options? What kids doesn’t like chocolate? The Mr. is crazy about eating cereal at night and I knew he would be thrilled with a healthier multi grain night snacking option. And of course I admit I love the easy option of grabbing a box of cereal for breakfast. I’m also sharing an easy after school treat you can make with Cheerios!
Disclosure: Platefull Co-op and General Mills sent me a box of New Multi Grain Dark Chocolate Crunch Cheerios® to enable my review & a prize pack.
Right on the box I received I found out the cereal is;
- made with real Cocoa
- whole grain corn
- serving size 3/4 cup = 110 calories without your choice of milk options
Now, I must admit I am not always the best morning person until I have my cup of coffee but, I need something to eat along with it. We love quick breakfast options in our house as we are up and on the run in a hurry like many families these days. Breakfast in our house is usually easy and consists of coffee or juice, cereal and fruit. Having another cereal option that everyone in the house enjoys is great!
The Multi Grain Dark Chocolate Crunch Cheerios® have just enough sweetness and chocolate flavor for the kids, but not so much it won’t appeal to the adults in the house. I think this new flavor is a thumbs up in our house!
When you try the New Multi Grain Dark Chocolate Cherrios® I hope you enjoy every last bite! Would you like to find out more or connect with Cheerios® on social media you can reach out to them via the links below and by using the #Cheerios on twitter.
