Honey Bunches of Oats Tropical Blend - A Review by Kathi

Honey Bunches of Oats Tropical Blends cereal sounds good. It describes itself as crispy mango flavored flakes combined with real coconut shavings and coconut flavored granola clusters.

It features:
10 g whole grain
120 calories
6 g sugar
9 essential vitamins and minerals including 60% daily value of iron
4 wholesome grains
0 g trans fat, 0.5 g saturated fat, and 0 mg cholesterol

I guess that means it is good for you.

I like fruity cereals and I like Honey Bunches of Oats, so I thought I would really love this cereal. Though it is good, it wasn't exactly as awesome as I expected. I think if the mango were pineapple instead, it would be tastier to me. The mango just didn't seem to "fit."

I'm not saying it wasn't good. I just think it could be better.

I do like the crunch, and I think it tastes better as a dry snack instead of as a cereal in a bowl with milk. It would also be really good as a yogurt mix-in. 

So give it a try and tell me what YOU think of it. Post gave me three coupons for a free box, so three of you will get to try it free. If you are interested, please email me directly:  (kathleennoland at yahoo dot com). Please reply by Sunday, March 10, to be included in the drawing for the coupon for a free box of the cereal, so I can get the coupons out to the winners on Monday.
