Before the holidays, we found out through @CouponMomCanada about a great promotional deal by Kellogg's to introduce their new products hitting grocery store shelves this month. All you had to do was sign up and Kellogg's was sending out packages while supplies lasted. I like when a brand we know and love have great promotions like this one for their customers.

Cereal is always a necessary food in our house. I was able to get in on the deal and we got our box delivered on Friday! We didn't even hear the door because it came after 4pm but it was a nice surprise seeing the package waiting on the door step. I'd like to thank the mail man for putting it in plastic, it was a little wet that evening.



Inside our gift box were three boxes of Kellogg's cereal including Rice Krispies cereal Brown Rice Gluten Free, Cinnamon POPs and Mini-Wheats Centres in Mixed Berry! We also got a box of Kellogg's Rice Krispies Squares Granola in cocoa and All-Bran bars in orange-cranberry! Kellogg's also threw in some savings with a coupon booklet up to $12 off select Kellogg's cereals and breakfast bars.

 

Being a Kellogg's family to begin with, there's isn't anything we wouldn't try at least once when it comes to cereal. We didn't open every box right away, but here is what we thought of what we've tried over the weekend:

Hubby is a big Corn Pops fan - hes gotta have his pops so I wasn't sure how he would react to the new Cinnamon Pops. Sometimes I guess change can be a good thing because after a bowl he declared the children are not allowed to touch "daddy's cereal" ;-)

I forget which company made them but years ago there was a cereal similar to the Mini Wheats Centers and I absolutely loved it. These are actually way better than the ones I remember, though I only managed to get one bowl out of the box. The kids also enjoy original Mini Wheats and these were a new treat for them. They loved them as the box did not last long, thankfully Kellogg's gave us a coupon for $2.50 off our next box!

Although I am not a huge fan of bran, the All Bran bars are actually great for a light something-to-go in the morning or quick pick-me-up in the afternoon. I was surprised they are not half bad! I think I enjoy these the most out of everyone in the family.

We buy Nutri-Grain bars often as they are healthy, something K is allowed to bring to school on her lunch that she actually enjoys eating. The new flavours were a big hit - the kids like them as much they do the original flavours available.

I thought the idea of adding granola and a hint of cocoa to their already popular Rice Krispies Squares was a great idea. It brings more wholesomeness to an already yummy treat and the kids enjoyed them!

I'm interested to try out the Rice Krispies Brown Rice Gluten Free Cereal, I wonder how it would do in homemade Rice Krispie Squares! Remembering Gluten free doesn't mean flavour free, we already love the original Rice Krispies and I'm sure these wouldn't disappoint. This is something I will have to do within the next couple of weeks, after of course I pick up some marshmallows.

Over all I think you will enjoy Kellogg's new cereals and cereal bars - look for them in your local grocery store! Want to learn more about Kellogg's, their products and find great promotional deals visit www.kelloggs.ca

  11. I have cereal envy! I missed out on that ~ we eat cereal at least once a day. It's considered better than dessert around here :)
