A few months ago I shared my childhood memories of Kellogg’s cereal. But while there will always be a special place in my heart for classics like Kellogg’s Corn Flakes, I love trying the brand new products from Kellogg’s too! And recently I got the chance to do just that thanks to my membership in the Kellogger’s Network. I received a big box full of Kellogg’s newest cereals and snacks and I couldn’t wait to dig in.
When I open the box, my boys (all three of them!) went right for the new Cinnamon Pops. The males in our household suffer from a serious case of sweet-tooth-itis, but I don’t generally purchase sweet cereal. They were so excited to see the sugary, cinnamon-flavoured pops in the box and they all had a bowl for breakfast the very next morning. Of course, I couldn’t be the only one left out, so I poured a bowl for myself too. The cinnamon flavour was fabulous and I must confess that this is a sugary cereal I wouldn’t mind purchasing every once in a while!
The box also contained new Rice Krispies Brown Rice Gluten-Free cereal and this product was something I thought was absolutely brilliant. I far prefer the flavour of brown rice and the fact that it’s healthier is an added bonus. The Rice Krispies Brown Rice Gluten-Free cereal is tasty and has a great extra crunch.
The final new cereal product was Mini Wheats Centres. Mini Wheats are my family’s hands-down favourite cereal so I was very excited to see that there was a new variety available. The whole-wheat squares that I’ve loved for so long were now available with real fruit filling. But as much as I love original Mini Wheats, this was the cereal I was least enthusiastic about. It was tasty, but the fruit took away some of the crunch of the Mini Wheats so that they didn’t really taste like Mini Wheats to me anymore. It’s a cereal I would buy for a change of pace, but it’s just not really Mini Wheats to me.
In addition to new cereal products, Kellogg’s also had some fun new snacks for both kids and adults. My husband and I both enjoyed the Orange Cranberry All-Bran Bars; the citrus taste was scrumptious and each bar had four grams of fibre! My husband ended up with the lion’s share of these bars; he doesn’t have the best nutritional habits so he needed them more than I did!
The final product in our box of new products was Rice Krispies Granola Bars. These fun squares took the classic Rice Krispies Squares and added whole-grain oats for extra fibre and nutrients. The squares are available in two fun flavours: Cocoa and Strawberry. The boys didn’t mind the strawberry variety but it was the cocoa variety that really won their hearts!
Kellogg’s products are always going to be a fixture in my household whether we’re enjoying one of the original cereals or a new breakfast or snack treat. If you’ve been sticking to the classics for your breakfast, why not try out one of the new products from Kellogg’s and see if there might be a new favourite among them? The new varieties have the same great taste and nutrition that you can always expect from Kellogg’s!
