Because there should be, had everything gone as planned, of course you know it never does.
Myblogspark.com and Cheerios sent me a package of their new Cinnamon Burst Cheerios and a flip so I could tell you all about their new product. I’ve spent the last two days trying to get my video off the camera. Trust me it isn’t a problem with the camera it is all user error I’m sure. I’ve uploaded videos before, I know I can do it. Maybe it’s the fatigue of still not sleeping through the night, apparently no one has told little Owen that the hours of 10pm – 8am are for sleeping.
Anyway, video aside let’s talk about the new Cinnamon Burst Cheerios.
We eat a lot of dry cereal here, well let me rephrase that, I eat a lot of cereal. It’s simple, easy to make and even easier to eat, especially when you have a five month old who demands constant attention. I love that the new Cinnamon Burst Cheerios is flavored with real cinnamon; so many products found on store shelves in today’s market cannot make the same claims. For the many of us out there who are trying to make sure we eat more “real” foods it is a definite selling point.
Then there are the other perks, the ones that are found under the label Nutritional Facts. Over the last year I’ve been paying much more attention to this side the box on the products we eat. One cup of Cinnamon Burst Cheerios contains 110 calories. Sodium; a very important ingredient for us right now runs in at 125mg, so much lower than many other products. Seriously take a look at some of the sodium content of your favorite foods, I bet you’ll look at your cupboards much differently afterward. Yet, the new Cheerios doesn’t just boaster low calories and sodium; you can also find 5 grams of fiber in each cup, that’s 20% of your daily value. We look for products that offer 3 or more grams of fiber when shopping so it is nice to know just once cup of Cheerios meets those requirements.
But don’t just take my word for it. Give the new Cheerios a look the next time you’re in the store. Compare the side bar to that of the cereal you normally buy, I bet you’ll be surprised at what you see. And should you take a box home to try you won’t be disappointed with the flavor.
I also promise I’ll keep working on that video and once I get it up I’ll leave a link of where you can find my in-depth look into the cardboard box.
You know I would never endorse a product here if I didn’t actually find it enjoyable even though there was also a sample sent, but per disclaimers I need to make that known.
