Honey Bunches of Oats



I don't know about you, but we love cereal in our house. Not for breakfast though, we're night time cereal snackers here. We really do love Honey Bunches of Oats. It's a good for you cereal yet it taste so good. It's sweet from the honey, crunchy from the nuts and no extra sugar is needed. You know what I mean! You get a 'good for you' cereal and feel unsatisfied then toss a teaspoon or two of sugar on top. We've all done it. No need to do that this Honey Bunches of Oats. My favorite is Honey Roasted, it has great taste all on it's own. I've been eating that flavor for quite some time. If you like fruit in your cereal they offer that too now.  Your sure to find one you'll love too! We were eating Honey Bunches of Oats before this review and we will definately eating for a long time to come.
