General Mills Compliment - Three Cheers for Cheerios
I don't usually buy fruit flavored cereal because of the artificial taste, but when I was picking up my Chocolate Cheerios at the store, I noticed the bright yellow boxes of Banana Nut Cheerios. I wasn't tempted to try it until I saw that the box said "Flavored with Real Bananas and Natural Banana Flavor". So I looked at the ingredients and sure enough, banana puree was listed, along with natural almond flavor. I was sold. Well, at least I was willing to give it a try.
When I opened the box, I immediately noticed the pleasant smell, not artificial at all, so that was a good start. When I tasted it, the first thing that came to mind was banana nut bread. I continued to eat the cereal right out of the box until I realized half of it was already gone! I then poured some in a bowl and added milk. I enjoyed it that way, too. Then I got the idea to add some chocolate Cheerios, and that made it even better! Either way, Banana Nut Cheerios is a winner if you like banana flavor without an artificial taste.
This cereal has 100 calories per 3/4 cup serving, with 9 grams of sugar and 1g total fat. I will continue to buy this mostly for snacking. It is definitely sweet enough to satisfy a sweet tooth while still being low in calories, fat and sugar.
I hope you'll try Banana Nut Cheerios and enjoy it as much as I did.
