Cheerios, Anyone?

Cheerios_Club_Store_logoThere are so many new cereals on the store shelves these days. Sometimes, we’ll opt to try something new; but, most of the time, we go for the old faithfuls – like Cheerios.
A few weeks ago, I heard that Cheerios had recently released some new packaging, available at club stores everywhere – like BJ’s, Costco, and Sam’s Club.  We’re BJ’s members and often purchase the large boxes of cereal at the club; so I was anxious to check out the changes from Cheerios.
Cheerios_Club_Store_prizepackThe new packaging is actually two boxes, attached to each other.   They easily pull apart.  Each box has its own bag of cereal inside.  The cool thing is that Cheerios has reduced the amount of air in each individual bag, so that these enhanced containers fit 10% more cereal than before and use less packaging.  And, if that’s not enough --- while each box contains more cereal, packaging material has been reduced by over 200,000 pounds, saving 1,000 trees and taking 130 Cheerios trucks off the road, decreasing CO2 emissions.  Environmentally friendly cereal!
Everyone in my house enjoys a bowl of Cheerios from time-to-time.  Whether it’s for breakfast with milk, or by the handful for an afternoon snacks – my kids like their Cheerios.  And, I feel good about them eating them.  They aren’t loaded with sugar and I grew up on them! 
Would you like to try the 2-box Cheerios for yourself?  Great! I have (2) 2-box Cheerios packs to give away to TWO lucky readers! If you’d like to win, please follow the Rafflecopter directions below.

My favorite has been regular Cheerios for years and years.  I do not like sweet cereals at all and Cheerios has the right mix of flavor and crunchiness.

I don't usually eat cereal but I like to eat cheerios plain with no milk.

My favorite seems to change with my mood. I've been in a Cheerios mood lately. I just picked up Chocolate Cheerios so I can get my chocolate fix along with my Cheerios in the morning.

I like frosted mini wheats with the fruit in the middle.  They are fairly healthy and taste good.  My kids still like regular old Cheerios, though.
