Honey Bunches of Oats-New Fruit Blend Flavors

    We are huge fans of Honey Bunches of Oats Cereal in my house.  To be quite honest, I rarely get to eat any of it when we bring it home from the grocery store because the boys and my husband gobble it up right away.  It was definitely cause for celebration when we received the opportunity to review their new Fruit Blend Flavors.     The two Fruit Blends that we received were Peach and Raspberry along with Banana and Blueberry.  I knew right away that my husband and my older son would naturally gravitate towards the Banana and Blueberry Blend because they are not big fans of Peach.     Of course, I was absolutely right and I didn't even get to try that flavor because they polished off that box before I even got around to tasting it. According to them it was delicious and they want to know when I'm buying it again.     Now, my younger son and I love Peach and Raspberry so we sat down together to try this Fruit Blend.  It was delicious!  I liked the fact that the peach taste was … [Read more...]
