Trix Swirls Cereal Review

We are cereal fiends at our house! We eat cereal almost every morning for breakfast and most nights we eat a bowl of cereal for snack. Needless to say, we go through a TON of cereal and we all have our preferences! Trix has always been in our rotation, but I’m sorry to say had never been a favorite, until now! My children, hubby, and I seriously loved the Limited Edition Trix Swirls!

We were lucky enough to receive a Trix Swirls Creative Kid gift basket to review from MyBlogSpark. Wow! I’m sure glad we had this chance! New Trix Swirls have a colorful mix of fruity flavors: lemony green, berry berry blue, and rasporangey orange, Yum! My personal fave is the lemony green! I usually go for cereals with more flakes, nuts and fruits, but I had 3 large bowls of this Trix cereal! It was so good, the puffs have just the right crunch, there was absolutely NO sugary or artificial aftertaste! I can feel good about letting my kids eat them since they are a good source of Calcium (100 mg) & Vitamin D (40 IU)! With 120 calories (only 10 from fat) and 0g of Saturated & Trans Fat, they are a healthy choice for breakfast or snack!
Sadly, the box didn’t last long! They’re on next week’s grocery list and I can’t wait to enjoy them again!

Win it!

  6. DiPaola Momma says:

    I came by (late, that's sort of my thing) from SITS Welcomistas to.. well.. welcome ya to SITS (did I say well enough there?). And lookie what I found! My kids (all four of them plus dad #5) LOVE Trix. So I posed the question to them… #1 (15 year old boy) says "it's a marketing ploy, duh" (cynic!), #2 (10 year old girl) says "It was the crazy rabbit trying to hide the Trix from the kids" (not bad!) #3 (4 year old boy) says "They stayed in milk too long" (eew) and #4 (3 year old girls) says "it was painting them" (not sure who "it" was, but hey that works).

    SOOO Welcome to SITS! Stop by my blog you're my kind of peeps! And thanks for the give away!
