I have been a fan of Post Honey Bunches of Oats cereal since my husband got me hooked on it a few years back. And, since then, I love trying out the new cereal flavors they come up with, including their new line made with Greek yogurt and whole grain. This new line of cereal comes in two flavors -- Honey Bunches of Oats Greek Honey Crunch and Honey Bunches of Oats Greek Mixed Berry.
Back in April, I had the opportunity to try and share with my thoughts with you on the Honey Bunches of Oats Greek Honey Crunch version. If you missed my review, you can read it here -- http://www.inspiredbysavannah.com/2013/04/we-look-forward-to-breakfast-now-thanks.html. Recently, the folks at Post Cereal were kind enough to send along their other flavor from this line, Honey Bunches of Oats Greek Mixed Berry to try, along with two cereal bowls and oversized spoons (which made for a fun review).
While I liked the honey crunch version, I am usually a fan of fruity, berry cereals. So, I was eager to try and compare this flavor to the honey crunch one I have been eating. Unfortunately, due to recent head colds a few family emergencies that took me out of state, I had to wait to pour a bowl of this Greek yogurt and whole grain cereal from Post. But, I can say, it was well worth the wait, as I have found my new favorite Honey Bunches of Oats cereal. After pouring about a cup of this cereal into the new ceramic cereal bowls I was sent, I couldn't help but notice the large granola clusters, crisp whole grain flakes, along with real fruit pieces ( strawberry, raspberry and blueberry flavors).
Like the Honey Bunches of Oats Greek Honey Crunch, each spoonful provided a great crunch, even after the cereal had been sitting in a bowl of milk for a few minutes. I don't know about you, but I hate soggy cereal. To avoid this, I usually have to sneak a bowl of cereal before the girls get up (if I am lucky), or wait until they go down (if they go down) for a mid-morning nap.
With Greek yogurt being popular among most consumers, it is nice to see a trusted brand like Post Foods offering up a delectable Greek yogurt and whole grain cereal, the whole family can enjoy. Like I shared in my previous review of the Honey Crunch version of this cereal, my two picky eater daughters love snacking on this cereal, which now makes it easier for me to pour a cup of the Honey Bunches of Oats Greek Mixed Berry to enjoy, alongside them.
If you haven't had a chance to try either the mixed berry or honey crunch versions of this new Post Honey Bunches of Oats cereal and love Greek yogurt, you will want to pick up a box the next time you go food shopping. And, once you take your first spoonful, you will be hooked on this great tasting combination of crispy granola clusters and slightly tangy taste of the Greek yogurt.
