Day one of my 4th blogoversary celebration! Help me celebrate with a giveaway!

**Once again MyBlogSpark has given me the opportunity to try something new and also share it with one of my readers! Thanks MyBlogSpark for participating in my 4th Blogoversary Week of Giveaways!**

Do you remember Kix cereal from your childhood? I do! At least I remember the commercials. I also remember it as one of those cereals that I always wanted my mom to buy, but she never would! Seriously, I was deprived people! Now I really have no idea why she wouldn't buy it for us because it's not one of those high sugar cereals like the other cereals my brother and I always begged for (like Sugar Smacks and Corn Pops and Fruit Loops - yum!!). We were more the Cheerios kind of family I guess. See people, just another one of the many reasons that I need therapy that I can blame on my mother. Heh.

So, General Mills has a new flavor of Kix cereal now - Honey Kix.

My boys tried it and it was a hit. They are big cereal lovers in general, so I wasn't at all surprised. And I have to say, I liked it too. Now that I have "mature" tastes I actually prefer a cereal that isn't too sweet.

Here's a little bit of info that I was given about the cereal:

We are excited to offer you Honey Kix cereal, which has all the goodness of Kix® cereal but now with a touch of honey! Honey Kix is a good source of fiber, calcium and vitamin D, contains 16 grams of whole grain per serving (at least 48 grams recommended daily) and has no artificial flavors or preservatives. A perfect balance of taste and nutrition through simple ingredients, which both moms and kids can agree on!

MyBlogSpark is giving away a Honey Kix prize pack to one of you! The prize pack includes a coupon for a free box of cereal, a honey jar, a cereal bowl, a container to take your cereal and milk on-the-go, and a great container to keep cereal fresh at home.

They also sent me a prize pack and I can tell you it's nice! The cereal container is a good size and is sturdy. I'm not sure if you can tell from the picture, but it has a two-in-one pour spout (large and small). The on-the-go container unscrews and you put the bottom cup (which has a freezer gel surrounding it) in the freezer (duh!) and it helps keep the milk cold. The top cup has a spoon that snaps into the lid. If you are thinking that it doesn't take much to impress me, well, you're right!

  3. Don't we all deserve a nanny to feed the kids? I wish! Those look yummy!

  4. I always like to start out the morning with a cup of hot black coffee---I don't know that it makes my morning easier, but at least I'm awake for it!

  5. Right now, I'm trying to figure out a morning routine! Never been much of a routine kinda girl, but with adding more and more on my plate, I have to come up with something!

  6. It's about dang time Kix came out with a new product! I've been a Kix eater forever and have tried to get my neice into it but it's all about the honey nut cheerios for her. Grrrr...

  11. My kids love oatmeal in the mornings, and warm cocoa with marshmallows. Just pop it in the microwave for less than a minute and you're good to go. Of course, they also LOVE cereal, dry. Why they don't eat it with milk is beyond me. I bet they will love this KIX cereal and I know KIXs is one of the healthlest cereals around, our school nurse told me :) We give it out to students who don't bring a healhy snack from home.
