*ENDED* New Chocolate Cheerios Review & Giveaway

Who doesn’t love chocolate? Seriously, I don’t think I have ever met one person that didn’t like chocolate in some form or fashion. This is why I was so excited to host a review/giveaway of the New Chocolate Cheerios from General Mills.

Chocolate Cheerios may sound indulgent but according to the nutritional information right on the box, they are low in fat, contain at least 8 grams of whole grain per serving, are a good source of calcium and vitamin D and best of all, are made with REAL cocoa and  only 100 calories per serving. Yay for Chocolate!

By the way, we cracked open that box as son as it arrived and my youngest had a bowl – he says “Yummy, these are soooo good.” I must admit I grabbed a handful from the box and they are “sooooo good.”

WIN A CHOCOLATE CHEERIOS GIFT PACK

Chocolate Cheerios Spa Kit

The gift pack contains, one box of New Chocolate Cheerios, a ceramic cereal bowl and a chocolate spa kit.

TO ENTER: Leave a comment on this post telling me about the best chocolate you ever ate! That’s it!
