If it wasn’t for the WIC program, we would probably go broke buying cereal for our children. They could eat it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks! That’s why I signed up to try out some of the new Honey Kix from My Blog Spark. (If you haven’t noticed, I love trying new things!)
So they sent me a really neat gift pack with a coupon for a box of Honey Kix, a container to store the cereal in, a travel kit to take the cereal on the go, a honey jar, and a bowl. I was all, “Hey cool!” and my husband was like, “Huh?” He didn’t understand why anyone would want to take cereal AND milk with them when they are away from home. I know I wouldn’t. But I’m sure someone out there would find it useful, right?
On the way home from picking up the package, I was taking everything out to examine everything to see how to take apart the travel thing and put it back together. But I broke the spoon. DOH! I was trying to force it back into its little home in the top of the travel container and I ended up pushing on it too hard. Oh well.
I’ve always wanted to have one of those containers to store cereal in. My grandmother has tons in her cabinets, and I remember being amazed by them as a child, looking up at those containers lined up in a row. So I was a little giddy when I got that out. For the record, the honey jar is plastic. I was a little disappointed about that.
As for the cereal, I didn’t get to try any! But my kids gobbled it up. When I asked them if they liked it, there was a resounding, “YES!”
Of course, the mom in me approves nutritional details: Honey Kix is a good source of fiber, calcium and vitamin D, contains 16 grams of whole grain per serving (at least 48 grams recommended daily) and has no artificial flavors or preservatives. You can see a complete list of ingredients and nutrition info here.
