YUMM-O Chocolate Cheerios ended 2/28

Have you seen the NEW Cheerios yet???
If you LOVE Cheerios and if you LOVE Chocolate then this is the cereal for you!

Your taste buds will be delighted with new Chocolate Cheerios-with a perfect balance of whole grain goodness and a delicious touch of chocolate taste in every bite.

I was sent a box of the Chocolate Cheerios to try.. one word YUM-O!!

Did you know.....

Chocolate Cheerios is low in fat, heart healthy*, has 100 calories per serving, it contains at least 8 grams of whole grain per serving (at least 48 grams recommended daily), and is a good source of calcium and vitamin D. Made with real cocoa, Chocolate Cheerios can help your family start the day off right with a delicious and nutritious breakfast.

I felt like I was a kid again.. Chocolate for breakfast, I couldn't believe it!!!
It was AWESOME!!

I love to snack through out the day and especially in the evening when I get that Chocolate craving... IT get's the "JOB DONE"!!!

As some of you know I work at an Aftercare program at our school so I thought that I would see what the kids had to say about the NEW Chocolate Cheerios..

Maggie says: It's REALLY Chocolaty and GOOD! It also is healthy if it's Cheerios.

Jamie: It is BUSTING with Chocolate flavor!

Gabby: It's got a GREAT Chocolate flavor and it's a Healthy snack.

Kyle: It's a GREAT snack.
