Open our pantry and you are sure to find a box of Cheerios®. Our whole family enjoys eating the familiar circular cereal with the hole in the middle. Perfect for breakfast, for snack time and trips, we like all the varieties but we usually buy Honey Nut. My parents regularly eat the MultiGrain kind.
Just recently we tried out the newest option, Banana Nut Cheerios®. The cereal is flavored with real banana and natural banana and nut flavors, according to the box. Like other Cheerios varieties it is a good source of calcium and Vitamin D, made with whole grain and most importantly, may reduce the risk of heart disease.
Now, I'm a big fan of bananas. I even add bananas to my cereal. I also LOVE banana bread, banana muffins, pretty much banana anything. The Banana Nut Cheerios® went over with both kids pretty well. They ate their servings plain, without milk during snack time. Both my husband and I ate ours with milk. The cereal definitely has a sweet banana taste, but the nut flavoring isn't very prominent. That's OK by me though, since I'm not a huge nut lover. If you like sweet, banana flavored products, you'll probably like this new variety of cereal. Try it out for yourself and see what you think! If you visit Cheerios.com, you can access a 55 cent printable coupon.
