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.
10 g whole grain
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.
