Getting Tropical With Honey Bunches of Oats Tropical Blends {Review} #HoneyBunchesofOats

Screen Shot 2013-03-06 at 4.29.10 PM

My family eats a lot of cereal, I mean with four of us eating cereal about five days out of the week (plus sometimes for lunch or a snack) we go through a lot of boxes.  We also like to mix it up and all have different favorites.  Our new favorite has the Honey Bunches of Oats line which has so many yummy varieties.

The latest variety we tried was Honey Bunches of Oats Tropical Blends.  It is a blend of crispy mango flavored flakes combined with real coconut shavings and coconut flavored granola clusters.  Yes you do have to like coconut to like this blend, and luckily we love it!  I actually don’t think I ever had coconut in a cereal before and it is amazing!  The crunchy but sweet softness of the coconut make this a refreshing breakfest blend!  The only problem for us was that the box wasn’t big enough that we went through it in three days!
