General Mills Cereal Review

Cereal happens to be one of the main breakfast staples in my household. In fact, it is often eaten as a snack or even dinner at times. As someone who is desperately trying to change the eating habits in our home, I'm proud to be a General Mills consumer.

My Blog Spark recently contacted me and asked if I would like to participate and review a few General Mills Cereal products. Before I talk about the cereal that I had chosen, I'd love to share a few key points with you.

Did you know that all Big G cereals are made with whole grains and low in calories? Yes, really! How could you not be happy about feeding these products to your family? That's not all, there are other benefits in consuming General Mills Cereal.

The tidbit of information below has been shared directly from General Mills. Please do not distribute this information without proper authorization.

Please click to enlarge picture.

Not only is cereal lower in calories and fat than most other breakfast choices, cereal is also:

-Rich in nutrients
-A leading source of whole grain in children's diets

One study of 16,000 adults revealed those who skipped breakfast tended to weigh more than those who ate breakfast.

Eating cereal could mean that you:

-Consume less fat at breakfast
-Reduce calorie intake

The complex combination of vitamins, minerals, fiber and other substances found naturally in whole grains work together to help reduce the risk of heart disease and some cancers

Visit General Mills Wellness for more information pertaining to the cereal and other products.

My Blog Spark sent four (4) V.I.P. coupons, each good for one FREE box of cereal. This does not influence my decision and opinions with General Mills as I have been a loyal consumer for several years prior to being contacted.

I would also love to mention that you can find Boxtops For Education on most General Mills products. Even if you do not have children, please consider saving these boxtops for a local school or send them to someone who does save them. Each boxtop is generally worth .10 and they do add up quickly. I personally clip every boxtop for education that I find and collect them from anyone who is willing to save them for my children's school to raise funds for needs they may have.

With my coupons, I tossed the following cereals in my cart:

Kix, Cheerios, Honey Nut Cheerios & Golden Grahams. We chose this variety because, they have always been a favorite in our household, especially with my children. I'm fond of the nutrients in each bowl and my family loves that there has been no sacrifice in deliciousness.

Some products claim to be good for you and it is quite possible that they are. However, many products lack in good taste as well as proper nutitional values that are important and vital for daily consumption.

For a limited time, you can also find a small paperback book in participating boxes of Cheerios. An added bonus when we picked up our large box at the grocery store! I happen to enjoy all of these cereals that were chosen without sugar. However, Cheerios has no sweetness added and you may need to use a teaspoon of sugar in your bowl for even more enjoyment.


Would you like to try a box of General Mills cereal for yourself? It's going to be a tough decision on which one to choose and My Blog Spark would like to help with a $1 off coupon. Please click HERE to print your coupon today!
