Peanut butter is one of those foods that brings me back in time, back to my childhood. For as far back as I can remember, I've always loved peanut butter. In cookies, on toasted English muffins and even straight out of the jar with a spoon, it's one of my favourite comfort foods. My favourite peanut butter meal of all time is a toasted peanut butter & banana sandwich. At least once a week I bring one to work with me for breakfast.

As a #LMDConnector, I am privy to news of new and limited time only General Mills products. When I heard that General Mills Peanut Butter Cheerios was hitting store shelves March 4, I couldn't have been more excited and I couldn't wait to be one of the first people to try them! I was thrilled to receive a couple of boxes of Peanut Butter Cheerios in the mail, along with handy food containers that will be put to good use! I was sure that I would love the cereal, but I decided to use Big-A for my first taste-test. Big-A will eat anything you put in front of him...except for cereal. And it drives me CRAZY!
On busy weekday mornings, I would love it if I could put a bowl of cereal in front of him each and eveyr day while I'm preparing lunches, getting his backpack together, and getting myself ready for work. But life is never that easy, is it? Usual requests from Big-A are boiled eggs & toast or oatmeal with cinnamon. I am more than happy to make him a healthy breakfast, as I know how important it is for children to start their day with a healthy meal. But on the craziest of mornings, I really do wish he would eat a bowl of cereal.
As usual, Big-A was less than thrilled to be sitting in front of a bowl of cereal on the morning of the taste-test. But he gave them a try, and here are the results:
After a few bites, he loved them! And I am happy to say that I haven't had to battle with him to eat them on busy weekday mornings. He still requests his usual eggs or oatmeal, but I know that I have a cereal option that he'll eat on the really crazy mornings. As soon as I opened the cereal box I was instantly hit with the delicious aroma of peanut butter. And the peanut butter flavour tastes real, not artificial as it does in many other cereals.
As I mentioned earlier, Peanut Butter Cheerios will hit store shelves March 4, but they will only be available for a limited time. If peanut allergies are not a concern for you or your family, make sure to give them a try!
