Breakfast? Do you grab something quick? Do you skip it? Is your morning routine all about a coffee shop? I am a breakfast lover! It started as a small child. We always had breakfast and during the school year, we always had a bowl of cereal, milk and fruit or orange juice. The habit still continues to this day. I LOVE a great bowl of cereal. In fact when I lived in my first apartment and money was tight–breakfast, a bowl of cereal, was often dinner!

I was thrilled to receive a box of Post Honey Bunches of Oats to review as part of my partnership with the Purex Insiders. I am a lover of pure cereals, not much sugar and usually no added stuff….so I was interested to try this cereal. I received the Honey Bunches of Oats and Almonds. As, if they knew me–I love ALMONDS! There are at least 10 varieties of Honey Bunches of Oats.  TEN! I couldn’t believe it. I guess I have walked by that section in the cereal aisle and never even glanced at the varieties. But not anymore.

Here’s what I loved:

  • it tastes great. I worried it would be too sweet, but it was not. Looking on the box, I  could see why. There are only 6 grams of sugar in the cereal.
  • it has a great crunch, which is important to me! There are 4 nutritious grains in each bowl – wheat, oat, corn and rice. And the bonus? Bunches of crunchy granola. Each serving contains 10 grams of Whole Grain – important for any diet.
  • it is good for you. Heart Healthy! 0g of Trans fat, 0g of Saturated fat and 0g of Cholesterol. Diets low in these things are good for your health and your heart. And one serving provides 9 essentials vitamins and minerals.

Want to know how I know this cereal is really good? The box was empty in a week! Yep! Someone must have been creeping into the kitchen for handfuls of cereal as a snack. BUT, what a great snacking food!!

Interested? Find out more about Honey Bunches of Oats on their Facebook Page. Varieties include: Strawberry, Cinnamon Bunches, Pecan Bunches, Fruit Blends, Raisin Medley and more! I agree with Post- This cereal is guaranteed to put the smile back in us!

Now for the best part. I am giving away 4 coupons for a FREE BOX (up to $4.49) of any variety of Honey Bunches of Oats. Enter via the Rafflecopter form below!! Good luck and Good eating!!

When I wake up in the morning, particularly if I did not get enough sleep, my first thought is, ‘What kind of coffee will I have and what creamer will I use?’ I know, kinda crazy, but that’s me! I love a good cup of coffee, but I never drink it black. I actually think it tastes pretty disgusting plain! It started back when I was a little kid and my Dad would fix coffee every morning. I watched him make it and then ‘doctor it up’. He carefully added just the right amount of sugar and then he took out the milk jug and carefully spooned some of the cream off the top. He tasted it, drank some and then filled a large thermos with the rest of the coffee for his day at work. If there was any leftover, we got to drink a sip or two! So, I get it naturally! I love to ‘doctor’ up my coffee also.

After using many kinds of creamers, half and half, skim milk and a few other things, I settled on the flavored creamers. I get the sweetness I like and the milky color in my mug. Recently I was introduced to a new variety of dairy creamers – and I do mean dairy! Natural Bliss by Coffee-mate. What’s so great about them? Four things….the four ingredients in each of them. Non-fat Milk, Heavy Cream, Sugar and Natural Flavor. Now that is something even my Dad would love.

I was given the opportunity to test out Natural Bliss for myself. The first thing I did was to go to and print out a coupon for $1.00 off of 2 Natural Bliss Creamers. You can get the same coupon here. You can see the pictorial album of my trip to the local Walmart SuperCenter on my Google+ page.

The price was perfect at Walmart and then I used my coupon to get an additional $1.00 off of two. I don’t think you can find a better price anywhere, so please take the coupon to Walmart and redeem it there. Natural Bliss is available in three flavors, Vanilla, Caramel and Sweet Cream. The Vanilla is also available in a low-fat version. That will be the next one I buy! So this morning I tried some in my coffee….

I have to say, you can taste the difference. For one thing, most of the other creamers you find in your dairy section of your store do not contain any dairy product. Now, if you are lactose intolerant, like a few of my friends, then you will love those varieties. I could immediately taste a difference in Natural Bliss–it had no aftertaste, no funny flavor, just a great taste! It swirls nicely into the mug and looks a lot like the cream my Dad use to pour into his coffee…but less calories. The vanilla version has 35 calories per serving and 15 calories are from fat. Not bad for the delicious taste! I used a non-flavored K cup in my Keurig because I didn’t want to mask the natural flavor.

This afternoon a friend dropped by, she opened and tested the caramel. ‘Love it’! First words after the first sip! I made an Iced Coco Mocha Coffee. Here’s the recipe: Brew one K cup of Green Mountain Coconut Creme Coffee. Fill a tall glass with crushed ice. Add one tablespoon of chocolate syrup on top. Pour in the coffee. Add 1 tablespoon Vanilla Natural Bliss. Add a straw and enjoy. This version has 85 calories. For a sweeter treat, add whipped cream to the top. This afternoon delight beats the pricey coffee shop drinks easily!

I will say that this creamer is not too sweet, so some of you who like a really sweet coffee treat, may want to add some sugar or flavored coffee syrup to yours. I confess that I am a huge fan of Coffee-mate creamers and always have several stocked in my refrigerator. Natural Bliss is a great addition to the family!
