(CLOSED) General Mills Yummy Cereal Treat Bars Review and Giveaway

I’m terrible about breakfast.  At least for me.  Except on the weekends when there’s more time to languish in front of the stove to actually cook something yummy like that picture.  Otherwise breakfast for me is usually my cup of coffee (or three).

When it comes to the kidlets, I make sure they have breakfast every day without fail.  Which means some mornings, particularly on school mornings when Princess Nagger is really dragging getting out of bed and getting ready for school, something quick and easy – and nutritious – can be a challenge.  Finding something that is nutritional – and yummy – can also sometimes be a challenge.

That’s when General Mills saves the day – with their new Cereal Treat Bars.  I don’t know how many times I’ve almost forgotten to put a snack in Princess Nagger’s backpack on the way out the door to school (and when I do forget, I sure hear about it when she gets home).   Both Princess Nagger and the Little Dude loved them both – I had a preference for the Lucky Charms ones, since I’m not really a chocolate lover (I know, I’m hearing the collective shocked gasps reverberating throughout the blogosphere).

Since the Cereal Treats Bars contain less than 140 calories per bar and are made with wholesome cereal you can feel good about giving them to your kids (or eating them yourself).

As an added bonus, they support Boxtops for Education – Princess Nagger is already collecting her stash for when they have a contest to win an ice cream party (for the class that brings in the most during a specific week – she’s all set).  These awesomely yummy treat bars are sporting not one, but TWO Box Tops for Education seals on each box.

These flavor-packed Cereal Treats Bars are sure to meet the ‘cool factor’ that kids demand.  Just ask Princess Nagger, she’ll tell you.  Check out Cereal Treats Bars online for great information and coupons for new products. Also, be sure to visit the Betty Crocker Facebook page and get involved in the conversation.

Want to try them out for yourself?
