Cereal is a staple in our home. By looking at one of my shelves, you could easily assume that we go through a good bit of cereal by the stash. I am a couponer who shops for the best cereal deals. 99% of all boxes of cereal purchased in my home are a top brand name. Its not that I shun generic brands, I just find even better deals on the brand names! Even found a spectacular deal on boxes of a Honey Bunches of Oats variety. This is why I wasn’t hesitant when offered a sample of the new Honey Bunches of Oats Tropical Blends.
The Honey Bunches of Oats Tropical Blends cereal is an interesting concept. You’ll find bits of crispy mango, oats, flakes, and granola clusters with crunchy coconut. Not to mention there is a touch of honey flavoring to the cereal. An explosive burst of flavor in each bite. This is what I love about Honey Bunches of Oats; they are always creating a new exciting flavor combination. Great way to target various audiences! My son loves the Honey Roasted, daughter loves the Vanilla, and I love the Raisin.

Nutritional Facts (Based on 2000 calorie diet):
With all due respect to Honey Bunches of Oats, the new Tropical Blends was not a huge hit in my household. However, that doesn’t mean it won’t be for other consumers. Some ingredients are for acquired tastes. The flavors were balanced well and I liked the cereal more than my family. The combination of flavors in the blend is a fantastic concept and more than likely will be enjoyed by the adults. If you don’t have finicky eaters like I do, your whole family may love it. I want to express that you shouldn’t take my word for it on this one, you should try this cereal on your own to form an opinion.
