Banana Nut Cheerios® Review and Giveaway


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.


See the banana tree pictured to the right? I've always wanted a banana tree, and now I have one thanks General Mills and MyBlogSpark. Here's your chance to get one, too. General Mills has kindly offered to give three (3) Brimful Curiosities readers an awesome Banana Nut Cheerios® gift basket. The Banana Nut Cheerios® Gift basket includes a coupon for Banana Nut Cheerios, a banana tree with fruit basket, two cereal bowls and a bread loaf pan.

I haven't tried the Berry Burst Cheerios. I love cereal with berries, but I didn't know this kind even existed.

This new variety sounds wonderful.

I love Cheerios in general, but probably love honey nut best.

I have never tried the frosted or berry best, or, of course, banana nut. Eager to try it.

I have not tried Berry Burst but I HIGHLY recommend the Apple Cinammon Cheerios. We discovered them two weeks ago, they're fabulous.

Wow! We've tried them all, except Yogurt Burst Cheerios. Love them all. The fruity cheerios are a good sub for Fruit Loops and other more sugary cereals.

There are a couple that I haven't tried but this is the first time I have heard about Fruity Cheerios. That sounds like an interesting flavor. Thank you!

Dan said...

There are a few of the flavors I have not tried since I always get the plain Cheerios. But I do love the Banana Nut Cheerios!
