This is the third of twelve weekly posts sponsored by BlogHer and Kellogg's. EACH POST will have its own $100 gift card giveaway. The plan is to have each giveaway start on Tuesday and run until the following Monday.
This week's topic is, understandably, what are your favorite Kellogg's cereals? And are there any Kellogg's cereals you enjoyed as a child that your children now like?
Perhaps, like me, you don't always notice the maker of your cereal? In that case you are in luck, because I am sympathetic to your plight and have copied and pasted this chart from the Kellogg's site to make it easier to answer the question:
When I was a child the Granola was my favorite, but I also liked ALL the sweet ones: Froot Loops, Honey Smacks, Corn Pops, Cocoa Krispies, Apple Jacks. We only got them when we visited our grandparents, or a friend's house, or when we went camping and got the little boxes, because I was a child of the '70s and was lucky my parents allowed us to have something as sweet as RAISIN BRAN.
What I remember is that in those multi-packs of little cereal boxes, the non-sweet ones got left for last---which is how I discovered how yummy Product 19 was. It was one of the ones my brother and I considered non-yummy because of being insufficiently sugared, but the deal was that we had to eat ALL the little boxes and not just the sweet ones, so I ate Product 19 and...well, hey! It's...YUMMY! I need to go write it on the shopping list; why haven't I been eating Product 19? (Also, I would love to have been in on the meeting where they decided to actually name it that.)
My favorites NOW are the Mini-Wheats (I like strawberry, and I eat them dry with a glass of milk on the side), and the Granola, and the Raisin Bran Crunch. When I'm pregnant, I crave the Frosted Flakes. And we use the Corn Flakes and the Rice Krispies in recipes.
My kids like the strawberry Mini-Wheats and the Cracklin' Oat Bran. They sometimes like the Granola, but the kids who eat it without milk manage to make SUCH a mess of it, I tend not to offer it.
