Check out this circa 1986 photo of me and my grandpa.  I am wearing what was my FAVORITE shirt… My yellow Cheerios shirt!  I know this sounds crazy, but I actually remember that shirt.  It was so soft. And I wore it non-stop.  Cheerios was my favorite food – my mom loves to tell the story of how she would scatter a bunch of Cheerios on my little kid table and I’d do laps around it, hanging onto the edge and taking bites as I go.


If you’ve been reading for a while, you may already know that I’ve done a lot of work with General Mills.  I think General Mills is an awesome company made of wonderful employees who are trying to do right by the world.  For example, the company has awesome maternity/paternity policies (you can read more about that here), is extremely supportive of LGBTQ rights, and has made big strides in making their cereals better for you (lower sugar content, no HFCS, and phasing out artificial flavors and colors).  General Mills has removed GMOs from Original Cheerios (hopefully, the other cereals will follow suit, but I know there are supply chain issues associated with this major shift).  I think these policies and changes are so important because so many children (and adults!) in our country regularly eat General Mills cereal for breakfast. 


But, most importantly of all, I love General Mills because they offer AFFORDABLE, MAINSTREM options for gluten-free cereal.  I have long adored Chex for this – I can go to my normal grocery story and pick up a gluten-free box of something delicious without having to travel to a specialty store.  So that’s why I was so excited to see that my old favorite is going gluten-free, too!


Seriously, I actually jumped up and yelped with joy.  Starting in September, gluten-free Yellow Box Cheerios, Honey Nut, Apple Cinnamon, Frosted, and Multigrain will be on shelves!  The price and availability should stay the same.  Cheerios will taste the same, too, because all General Mills did was change the manufacturing process to remove stray wheat, rye, and barley grains from the oats (Multigrain Cheerios has been changed to remove wheat and barley and use sorghum and millet).


Here’s the way that the kiddos and I eat our Cheerios…   


Henry:  Yellow box with milk

Claire: Yellow box on the highchair tray

Me:  Honey Nut and Yellow Box, mixed together, with plain Greek yogurt.  YUM.


Cheerios was Claire’s first experience with a grain!  She gives it two baby thumbs up.  She is winding down on her blueberry obsession (truly, she ate it at every meal for a loooong time), and now looks around expectantly for Cheerios, grapes, and asparagus.  Random mix, but I guess it works!


To celebrate the launch of gluten-free Cheerios, I’m giving away a prize pack of several boxes of this classic favorite.  And if you have a kiddo, I’ll throw in a yellow Cheerios shirt, too!  Simply leave a comment telling me your favorite cereal as a kid and as an adult.  Good luck!  <3

    Favorite cereal? Fruity Pebbles…so good! I haven’t had a bowl in years though!

  • bobbie September 10, 2015, 11:21 am

    As a kid my mom would allow us to eat very few cereals b/c of the sugar content. She really was ahead of her
    Anyway regular cheerios was one of them but I’d have to say rice chex was probably my favorite with cheerios a close second.
    Now as an adult I definitely think honey nut cheerios and multigrain cheerios are a tie. These are really the only two cereals I eat.

  • Kathleen September 10, 2015, 11:23 am

    My favorite cereal as a kid was Apple Cinnamon Cheerios! So happy to hear they’re going gluten free .

  • Judith September 10, 2015, 11:25 am

    When I was a kid, I loved Frosted Flakes, but was not allowed to have sugar cereal at home!! These days, I don’t eat cereal much but I do love Honey Nut Cheerios and anything by Kashi.

  • Amanda September 10, 2015, 11:30 am

    My favorite cereal as an adult is STILL cinnamon toast crunch. I only buy it on special occasions (like when I really want it. lol).

  • Jessica September 10, 2015, 11:32 am

    Cheerios are my favorite!

  • Haley September 10, 2015, 11:35 am

    As a kid I loved PB Captain Crunch! Still love it for dessert on occasions, but for a healthier breakfast cereal I’ve been loving Raisin Brand type cereal and granola.

  • Kara September 10, 2015, 11:35 am

    This is such amazing news! I loved Honey Nut Cheerios as a kid (or in a pinch, Yellow Box with brown sugar sprinkled on top!), though my #1 favorite was Lucky Charms. We rarely had sugary cereal in the house so when I got to college and had nonstop access to Lucky Charms, it was ON! Now, as an adult, I adore the varieties of GF Chex, and have been known to house entire boxes of Cocoa Krispies after a long run, too.

  • kelly September 10, 2015, 11:36 am

    My favorite cereal was Lucky Charms. I can’t wait to try the new GF Cheerios!

  • Nicky September 10, 2015, 11:41 am

    My favorite cereal has been Honey Nut Cheerios. Now I enjoy it with Almond Milk 🙂 The Cheerios shirt would be adorable on my 19th month old as she is an addict! 🙂

  • Abby September 10, 2015, 11:41 am

    Honey nut Cheerios by far! My mom wouldn’t let us have the super sugary artificial colored cereals….now I know why! As a mom I get it!!

  • Katie sB September 10, 2015, 11:43 am

    Favorite cereals as a kid were honey nut cheerios and frosted mini-wheats. As an adult, I love chex. Absolutely love any kind of cereal. It’s one of my favorite foods so I can’t keep too much around. 🙂

  • Nikki September 10, 2015, 11:44 am

    I loved fruit loops as a kid – probably not the healthiest, but good!

  • Emily H. September 10, 2015, 11:45 am

    I loved cereal as a kid- Cookie Crisp, Fruit Loops, and Peanut Butter Captain Crunch all come to mind. As an adult, I’m much more conscientious of the sugar content and don’t eat cereal often, although, Peanut Butter Panda Puffs are pretty awesome!

  • Stephanie September 10, 2015, 11:48 am

    Honey Nut Cheerios has been my favorite since childhood and into adulthood!

  • Kaella On The Run September 10, 2015, 11:49 am

    I LOVE the you have the matching shirt!! So cute! There’s a photo of me eating cheeriors, on the potty, when I was a toddler and it’s one of my favourites. It was even in the wedding slideshow 😉

    My favourite cereal was Cheerios! I’m still working on getting my toddler to eat ANY kind of cereal (he’s on a blueberry kick too right now haha!)

  • Jenn September 10, 2015, 11:50 am

    Cheerios was my one food craving when I was pregnant and now my little girl loves them!

  • Carrie C. In VA September 10, 2015, 11:51 am

    fave cereal as a kid was cinnamon Life. As an adult I love cranberry almond crunch. But my kids are only allowed Cheerios or Chex!

  • Ashley September 10, 2015, 11:54 am

    As a kid – Captn Crunch
    As an Adult – Ohs!

    Will def be giving GF Cheerios a try! If they taste as good as they always have then I might just be switching cereals.

  • Sara McGrath September 10, 2015, 11:59 am

    As a kid honey nut cheerios…it was the closest to a “sugary” cereal that we were allowed to have. As an adult…it might be a tie between rice crispies and original cheerios; both of which we always have in the house because kids + cheerios is a must! Although it would be great to find a way to keep the stray ones that fall off the high chair from becoming dust as you step on them… 🙂

  • Jessica September 10, 2015, 11:59 am

    As a kid I loved golden Grahams!!!! As an adult I love kashi….any of them

  • Sara September 10, 2015, 12:00 pm

    Love Cheerios in yogurt

  • Katie C. September 10, 2015, 12:01 pm

    As a kid, I loved Captain Crunch with the berries! My mom never bought sugary cereal, so whenever I would go to my friends’ houses to spend the night, I would get so pumped when they had it! As an adult, my favorite cereal is probably the Nature’s Path Mesa Sunrise Flakes.

  • Claire September 10, 2015, 12:03 pm

    I have a 3.5 year old and a 13 month old, and we love the original Cheerios and Cinnamon Chex.

  • Abby September 10, 2015, 12:06 pm

    Honey Nut Cherrios was my absolute favorite actually, and still continues to be a regular for me. I also loved Honey Bunches of oats all throughout middle and high school. Yum!

  • eve September 10, 2015, 12:07 pm

    I’ve tried to give my 9-month old cheerios a few times so far and every time, she chokes and gags. I think they’re too hard for her yet, because she does fine with puffs. I think I will have to wait a few more months until she’s a cheerios baby! Is Claire able to chew on them? how many teeth does she have? when did you start giving her cheerios?

    • Caitlin September 10, 2015, 12:38 pm

      About a month ago! She has two little teeth. Try soaking them in milk first – that’s what I do with Chex.

      • eve September 11, 2015, 10:07 am

        Thank you so much for this!
        I tried it last night and my daughter loved the (soggy) cheerios!

  • Meg C. September 10, 2015, 12:08 pm

    My favorite cereal as a kid and an adult is the yellow box Cheerioes. I prefer them straight from the box.

  • Liz September 10, 2015, 12:08 pm

    Favorite kiddo cereal was any sort of Cheerios! I still love them (as does my 2.5 year old) but also love “oh’s!”
    Yum!! My son calls cereal “cerool” and chooses it for one meal everyday!

  • Erin Powell September 10, 2015, 12:14 pm

    I love this post and love seeing those pretty baby blues on Claire! I grew up loving Honey Nut Cheerios, Team Cheerios (is that still a thing or was it just for the Olympics?) and Apple Cinnamon Cheerios!

  • Katie September 10, 2015, 12:19 pm

    As a kid, Kix always felt like such a treat! We eat a lot of Cheerios and Fiber 1 these days. Our kiddo loves “see-wheel” [cereal] too!

  • Courtney September 10, 2015, 12:21 pm

    I have loved Honey Nut Cheerios for as long as I can remember! I’m a recent member to the Gluten Free train, so I’m super excited about it being GF!

  • Jill September 10, 2015, 12:22 pm

    Fav cereal as a kid: Cinnamon Toast Crunch, and now, Frosted Mini Wheats and HN Cheerios.

  • jeannine September 10, 2015, 12:23 pm

    My favorite cereal as a kid was cinnamon toast crunch. My favorite cereal now is definitely cheerios. Cereal always seems like a simple, perfect meal no matter what time of day!

  • Mary September 10, 2015, 12:24 pm

    Cherrios from Yellow box! Always have been and are still my Fav!!!

  • Hillary September 10, 2015, 12:27 pm

    My favorite as a kid was anything sugar-laden (probably because they were forbidden)! I loved Trix and Cocoa Puffs. I’m now a fan of cereals with a heartier more granola-like texture that I can mix into greek yogurt like Kashi Go Lean Crunch.

  • Katie September 10, 2015, 12:27 pm

    This is exciting! My youngest will start eating Cheerios soon. I love it for breakfast.

  • Jennifer September 10, 2015, 12:30 pm

    My favorite cereal as a kid was Captain Crunch. My favorite cereal now is Multigran Cheerios and a mix of Vanilla and Cinnamon Chex!

  • Amie September 10, 2015, 12:31 pm

    I loved Cheerios as a child and would love to have one of those awesome yellow Cheerios shirts for my 1-year-old son! As an adult, I like Peanut Butter Puffins and granola.

  • Joanna September 10, 2015, 12:34 pm

    We LOVE cheerios in our house! Cheerios is my adult favorite. As a kid, I liked cinnamon toast crunch 🙂

  • Amanda September 10, 2015, 12:35 pm

    I’m so glad to know I’m not the only one in the world like this! When I was a kid, it was yellow box Cheerios only… I loved that stuff! I wouldn’t eat any other cereal, and I only ate them with milk! My parents would never get me a shirt though. :-/

    Oddly enough… I’ve never developed a taste for sugary/sweet cereal for breakfast. My husband thinks I’m crazy… he loves his Honey Nut Cheerios, among other colorful and sugary craziness… but I stand firm. If I’m going to eat a bowl of cereal, yellow box Cheerios with 2% is the only way. Sure I’ll munch on a Rice Krispies treat… and sometimes I’ll eat a handful of Cinnamon Toast Crunch… but there’s not another cereal I’ll eat from a bowl with milk. Ha ha!

  • Christine Merrick September 10, 2015, 12:35 pm

    I’ve always loved apple cinnamon Cheerios! As a kid and now!

  • Julie September 10, 2015, 12:35 pm

    I really loved Lucky Charms as a kid, and I actually liked the non-marshmallow pieces more! My 9 month old son eats Cheerios sometimes, and I was surprised when I saw a commercial recently announcing that they are going GF.

  • laura September 10, 2015, 12:36 pm

    Golden Grahams — all the way! We love the Mom’s Best version with a better ingredient list. I had that shirt, too! My almost 4 year old’s favorite color is yellow. She would wear a cheerios shirt with pride!

  • lauren September 10, 2015, 12:38 pm

    LOVE the GF Cheerios and so do my kids!!! My favorite cereal as a kid was either apple jacks or frosted flakes and now ( in addition to the GF cheerios), I am obsessed with Puffins Pumpkin Spice–they are gluten free and are a limited edition! You should definitely try em Caitlin!!

  • Kelly September 10, 2015, 12:40 pm

    Cheerios ARE my favorite cereal. Always have been, always will be! They were my go-to snack to deal with 3 am insomnia when I was pregnant with my daughter. The t-shirts are adorable and love Claire’s headband too! 🙂

  • Miranda September 10, 2015, 12:43 pm

    My taste in cereal hasn’t really changed much since I was a kid. My favorite breakfast cereals are Raisin Bran and Honey Nut Cheerios. My favorite treat cereal is definitely Count Chocula, which I remember being way easier to find in the ’90s. My toddler will happily snack on Cheerios all day long, too.

  • Rachel September 10, 2015, 12:43 pm

    Honey nut cheerios! I have a bowl for breakfast almost every morning.

  • Donna September 10, 2015, 12:43 pm

    Frosted flakes…….from childhood to adulthood!

  • Ali September 10, 2015, 12:44 pm

    My favorite cereal is a toss up between apple cinnamon cheerios (from when I used to be able to eat them and wasn’t GF) and peanut butter panda puffs!

    I have a questions about the gluten free status of the new Cheerios. Do you know if they are just separating out the grains or are they actually using uncontaminated oats? I have Celiac and can’t risk contamination. Based off of the description that they are just removing wheat, barley, and rye makes me think that contamination might still be an issue. 🙁

    • Caitlin September 10, 2015, 12:44 pm

      I can ask Cheerios to weigh in!

    • Vik September 10, 2015, 1:28 pm

      Hello from a fellow celiac. They developed a process to separate the small amounts of gluten grains that can get into the oats. There is a whole blog post about it on their website, with lots of comments and questions and answers, here is the link.

      Like you, I am very concerned about cross-contamination, so this isn’t a product that I would use. But it could be great for people who are sensitive to gluten, but don’t have as stringent of reactions or concerns about cross contamination.

      • Alisa September 13, 2015, 11:16 am

        Thank you Vik and Caitlin!

  • Kate September 10, 2015, 12:44 pm

    Favorite as a kid- fruity pebbles (though I could only get it when visiting a friend).
    Favorite now- probably multigrain Cheerios!

  • Katie September 10, 2015, 12:46 pm

    Funny story: When I was a toddler, I only got Cheerios as a snack at church-to keep them “special.” I called them “Church Candy.” Now, I really love to mix Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cheerios.

  • Emily J September 10, 2015, 12:50 pm

    Hard to choose! As a kid: alphabits with marshmallows or frosted mini wheats. Adult: still mini wheats but also Life, and honey bunches of oats. Though I try to keep sugar to a minimum in my cereal and only eat these every now and then.

  • Sarah Jacobs September 10, 2015, 12:54 pm

    As a kid I was obsessed with Fruit Loops because my mom would only let us have them as a dessert–never for breakfast! Today, we love Cheerios in our house, too! My 7 month old devours them and I love that she is developing her fine motor skills learning to pick them up and feed herself!

  • Erin September 10, 2015, 12:55 pm

    Apple Cinnamon Cheerios, hands down!!! They are sooooooo good. I’m thrilled about this news, since I’ve recently gone gluten-free!

  • Maddie September 10, 2015, 12:58 pm

    Cherrios are my favorite! When I found out a few weeks ago that they were launching the GF option, I was pumped! I’ve been missing my favorite since I went GF three years ago and I’m so happy to have them back (tasting like the classic too!) As a kid we never were allowed “sugar cereal” so our special treat was honey nut Cheerios or Honey Bunches of Oats!

  • Dominique September 10, 2015, 12:59 pm

    My favorite cereal as a kid was honey nut cheerios, but now it is oatmeal squares. I don’t usually eat cereal but when I’m pregnant and nursing it is a good quick snack. And I have two kiddos – one 3 year old and one 3 month old.

  • Libby vermeulen September 10, 2015, 1:06 pm

    Cheerios for my whole life! I used to pour sugar all over them when I was younger but now I wouldn’t have them any other way but plain. I also love Wheaties and Life, both today and years ago. I used to eat more sugary cereal too when I was younger but haven’t touched those for a long time

  • Tiffany T September 10, 2015, 1:08 pm

    As a kid I loved Frosted Flakes. My favorite cereal right now is Chocolate Chex. So yum!

  • Mina September 10, 2015, 1:11 pm

    As a kid my favorite cereal was Capt’n Crunch Berries. Those who know me now can’t believe it, I’m pretty much a health nut :-. My cereal of choice now is usually oatmeal.


  • Cecily September 10, 2015, 1:12 pm

    When I found the GF cheerios at the store, I actually teared up and smiled like a fool. You’re not crazy for yelping when you found out! This is huge!

    My favorite cereal as a kid was Cocoa Puffs, but now it’s Cheerios. And I’m not just saying that for the sake of this post. I searched long and hard after my g-intolerance diagnosis for GF Cheerios and eventually found Aldi’s version was GF. It just wasn’t the same though! Loving the new GF Cheerios! 🙂

  • Rebecca @ Strength and Sunshine September 10, 2015, 1:14 pm

    Cap’n Crunch! I hope they make that GF one day 😉

  • Sarah r September 10, 2015, 1:14 pm

    this is soooo exciting bc my baby is sensitive to gluten soy and dairy so I can’t have Cheerios right now (and neither can she when we start solids!). But this is such good news! My fave adult cereal is honey nut Cheerios… With a handful of choc chips but my favorite cereal as a kid was regular Cheerios. But I wouldn’t eat the broken ones, lol!

  • Abbe September 10, 2015, 1:16 pm

    My favorite was Cheerios and Crispix as a kid. Now it’s grape nuts! My 9 month old loves his Cheerios now 🙂

  • Katy September 10, 2015, 1:17 pm

    I also jumped up and down when I finally found the GF Cheerios! So nice to be able to share them with my 10 month old!

    My favorite as a kid and now is plain Cheerios!

  • Cheryl September 10, 2015, 1:17 pm

    Cheerios have always been my favorite and my 4 year old daughter loves them too!!

  • Cassie September 10, 2015, 1:23 pm

    Apple cinnamon cheerios has been a long-time favorite of mine!

  • Katie @ Peace Love & Oats September 10, 2015, 1:23 pm


  • Reenie September 10, 2015, 1:25 pm

    Those photos are adorable…. definitely frame worthy of all 3 of you in your Cheerios t-shirts. The close-up photo of Clarie ~ ~ so adorable. xo

  • Laura September 10, 2015, 1:26 pm

    I refused to eat any other cereal besides Cheerios growing up! It’s seriously all I would eat for breakfast for like 20 years! My mom said we should have bought stock in them! Now I alternate between original Cheerios and Kashi Cinnamon Harvest for breakfast! I need an adult Cheerios shirt!

  • Jessica September 10, 2015, 1:27 pm

    As a kidmy favourite was FULL of sugar.. Reese peanut butter puffs… Now I would say multi grain cheerios are my fav!

  • Karen B. September 10, 2015, 1:27 pm

    I don’t eat cereal any more because I don’t drink milk or eat grains but my grand daughter LOVES Cheerios! I also used to eat them as a child and young adult and the multigrain was my favorite. Captain Crunch was pretty good too. My son eats Cinnamon Toast Crunch. If I win, I’ll give the Cheerios to my daughter in law for my grand daughter.

  • Amy September 10, 2015, 1:41 pm

    i loved frosted flakes as a kid. Now I eat plain Cheerios with my 15 month old!

  • Nicole September 10, 2015, 1:46 pm

    My favorite as a kid was golden grahams! Now I enjoy lower-sugar options like Cheerios or Puffins.

  • Mary September 10, 2015, 1:47 pm

    Growing up we ate lots of Cream of Wheat. (I’m not sure anyone eats that anymore!) These days steel cut oats are my favorite. I tell my girls it is porridge 🙂

  • Katie September 10, 2015, 1:47 pm

    Kid: Reeses Puffs.
    Adult: Cinnamon toast crunch! & my little guy loves lucky charms for a “treat” otherwise he gets Chex or Cheerios!

  • Brenda September 10, 2015, 1:48 pm

    Lucky Charms were my favorite as a kid. Now I don’t even like cereal, it’s too bland for me. My kids and husband love it though!

  • Adina September 10, 2015, 1:49 pm

    I would have to say my favorite way to eat cereal is a mix of kix and honey nut Cheerios. My 16 month old has now become a Cheerios fiend!

  • Lauren September 10, 2015, 1:52 pm

    My favorite has ALWAYS been Honey Nut Cheerios. I am SO excited to be able to enjoy my favorite again, as I have been GF for the last 3 years and missed my Cheerios :).

  • Caroline September 10, 2015, 1:53 pm

    Instead of the frosted mini wheats, they used to have raisin mini wheats which were definitely a hit in our house!

  • Sara September 10, 2015, 1:54 pm

    favorite cereal as a kid: Cinnamon Toast Crunch

    favorite cereal as an adult: Honey Nut Cheerios!

  • Emily Baker September 10, 2015, 1:54 pm

    As a kid, I LOVED Lucky Charms and as an adult, I really get a hankering for delicious granola!

  • Sarah W September 10, 2015, 1:59 pm

    Favorite cereal as a kid was lucky charms. Favorite cereal currently is chex and now cheerios! I have celiac disease and am thrilled to have another yummy cereal option!

  • Jen September 10, 2015, 2:02 pm

    I loved Cheerios but I put 2 spoonful of sugar on each bowl.

  • Therese September 10, 2015, 2:07 pm

    I used to love a bowl of original Cheerios with a banana sliced in. Then I found out I had celiac. I’m psyched to be able to eat them again soon, and to introduce them to my toddler!

  • Elisabeth September 10, 2015, 2:07 pm

    As a kid, my favorites were Rice Krispies, PB Cap’n Crunch and Rice Chex. I still love all those (but rarely eat them), however favorites now are Shredded Wheat n Bran, Multigrain Cheerios and Kashi Go Lean Crunch (but can’t eat anymore due to some sort of allergy).

  • Laura @ September 10, 2015, 2:09 pm

    Gah! Claire is so cute! My favorite cereal as a kid was Special K.

  • Becca September 10, 2015, 2:14 pm

    We were only allowed fun cereals on vacations. Froot Loops all the way!

  • Katie September 10, 2015, 2:16 pm

    Apple cinnamon Cheerios and raisin bran!!!

  • Casper September 10, 2015, 2:16 pm

    My favorite cereal as a kid was frosted flakes. I was only allowed to have it at my grandparents’ house and my grandfather served it with milk and a splash of heavy cream. As an adult, I love Chex and Grape Nuts.

  • Jessica S September 10, 2015, 2:17 pm

    As I kid I, of course, loves anything that was full of sugar! Captain Crunch being my favorite at the time. Now I truly love Honey Nut Cherrios. They are my go-to serial as an adult.

  • Ann September 10, 2015, 2:18 pm

    My absolute favorite cereal is plain cheerios eaten dry! No lie! I’ve loved them since I was an infant and it’s my go-to comfort food! I’d love to win!! Yay Cheerios!

  • Trisha September 10, 2015, 2:21 pm

    Oh man, Cheerios all the way!!

  • Alisha September 10, 2015, 2:23 pm

    My favorite cereal as a kid was probably honey nut cheerios! It was the sweetest cereal we were allowed to get.
    Now days I’d probably say peanut butter puffins. Although I had the peanut butter multigrain cheerios recently and they were awesome!

  • Amy September 10, 2015, 2:24 pm

    Cheerios as a kid, protein Cheerios with almond milk and blueberries now!

  • Amanda September 10, 2015, 2:28 pm

    I loved cinnamon toast crunch but now I am a granola girl 🙂

  • Jen W. September 10, 2015, 2:29 pm

    Froot Loops…. ahh, the childhood memories!

  • Sarah Downs September 10, 2015, 2:33 pm

    Honey Nut as a kid! Homemade granola now…

  • Jennifer D September 10, 2015, 2:41 pm

    As a kid it was definitely Lucky Charms! Now I do love Honey Nut or Multigrain Cheerios!! My kid would look adorable in that t-shirt 🙂

  • Laura September 10, 2015, 2:54 pm

    My fave cereal is Quaker oat squares or kix:) but I love apple cinnamon Cheerios too! And if I win, I have a babe who would look super cute in that yellow tee!

  • Sara September 10, 2015, 2:55 pm

    As a kid, it was probably Frosted Flakes or Cookie Crunch! As an adult… I don’t eat a ton of cereal, but I do enjoy an occasional indulgence of Apple Jacks. I also like Honey Nut Cheerios – and I buy them all the time for my every. single. day. cereal eater husband. 🙂

  • Kate H September 10, 2015, 2:56 pm

    My favorite cereal growing up varied from lucky charms to golden grahams to fruit loops, but when I was pregnant last year I couldn’t get enough of Raisin Bran. Wasn’t really a craving, but I pretty much ate it everyday 🙂

  • Heather Montgomery September 10, 2015, 3:08 pm

    I LOVE Cheerios! I used to eat them all the time, my mom said she would put some on my walker and I would walk around and eat them (my dad says I missed my mouth half the time, thanks dad). I also ate them a lot in college when I didn’t like anything in the cafeteria. Now, Emma Kate LOVES them so I have started eating them again, too!

  • Charlotte September 10, 2015, 3:18 pm

    When I was a kid i loved fruit loops. Now I love chex!

  • Jordan K September 10, 2015, 3:19 pm

    I love Chex! The new flavors they have now are delicious too, but I will forever love Honey Nut Chex the best! 🙂

  • Heather September 10, 2015, 3:20 pm

    Multigrain cheerios all the way! As a celiac, I’m so stoked to see GF cereal from them!

  • Alexa September 10, 2015, 3:21 pm

    As a kid, my favorite cereal was lucky charms (although I was rarely able to get it!). Now, being gluten free as well, it’s Rice Chex all the way!

  • Kimberly September 10, 2015, 3:23 pm

    My favorite cereal as a child was Honey Grahams! Today I’m a big fan of the brand “Mom’s best cereals”. They make a version of honey bunches of oats. Yum!

  • Erin September 10, 2015, 3:29 pm

    Those pictures are too cute! I was a big Honey Nut Cheerios fan as I kid but I’d forgotten about them since I can’t eat gluten so I am SUPER excited about this announcement!

  • Julie September 10, 2015, 3:31 pm

    My favorite cereal as a child was probably lucky charms…. as an adult my favorite is either crunchy raisin bran or cheerios. My little guy is 2 and loves honey nut cheerios!

  • Kristina N. September 10, 2015, 3:38 pm

    I was such a weird kid. My favorite cereals were frosted mini wheats and…grape nuts. What the crap. Adults don’t even like grape nuts!! I don’t keep much cereal around the house now, but I can still down some frosted mini wheats or chex!

  • amelia@i_heart_kale September 10, 2015, 3:42 pm

    Mine was a toss up between honey nut cheerios & frosted mini wheats. Caroline had cheerios for her first grain too. She loves them!!

  • Rachel K September 10, 2015, 3:43 pm

    My favorite cereal as a child was Frosted Flakes (which my mom rarely bought). I don’t do cereal too often these days but I love Multigrain cheerios and Peanut Butter Puffins 🙂

  • Lu September 10, 2015, 3:45 pm

    As a kid, I loved Kix. Now with my own kiddo, we mix regular and multi grain Cheerios and eat with milk or plain mixed with dried fruit.

  • jeanne September 10, 2015, 3:46 pm

    As a kid I loved lucky charms but now I love oatmeal squares (I think that’s what they’re called) with yogurt.

  • Sarah Evans September 10, 2015, 4:09 pm

    So funny I just bought a box of honey nut Cheerios at the store today, both for me and my 2 year old! Cheerios has always been a standby, other brands of ‘O’ cereal don’t even compare (I’ve tried them all from specialty stores).

  • Samantha September 10, 2015, 4:20 pm

    I wasn’t allowed to eat sugary cereal as a kid. I did get regular Cheerios and I loved them. Still do, especially the honey nut.

  • Hillary September 10, 2015, 4:28 pm

    Cinnomon toast crunch!

  • ErikaMC September 10, 2015, 4:30 pm

    I have always loved Cheerios. For as long as I can remember my dad has eaten a bowl of Cheerios with a banana every morning and I have learned from him.

    I also use to love the Alphabet cereal but anything with marshmallows in it is way too sweet for me now.

  • Ashley N. September 10, 2015, 4:42 pm

    As a kid I loved cinnamon toast crunch and honey nut Cheerios! As an adult, my tastes haven’t changed haha still love them both and raisin bran.

  • Liz September 10, 2015, 4:44 pm

    lucky charms as a kid and honeycomb as an adult!

  • Kara September 10, 2015, 4:50 pm

    When I was a kid I liked Lucky Charms but didn’t have cereal much. Now I’m into raisin bran. Strange, but true.

  • Kassie Kulb September 10, 2015, 4:54 pm

    I can’t turn down cinnamon toast crunch!

  • Erin @ Her Heartland Soul September 10, 2015, 4:56 pm

    I love Cheerios! And that flashback picture!

  • Kasondra September 10, 2015, 5:28 pm

    as a kid: Banana Nut Crunch which was a treat. or Honeycomb.
    now: does hot cereal count?…

  • tara September 10, 2015, 5:30 pm

    I was that weird kid who loved wheaties and grape-nuts….but only soggy! My favorite cereal now is honey nut chex – soaked in almond milk!

  • Jessica September 10, 2015, 5:37 pm

    As a kid I loved Cinnamon Toast Crunch.
    Now I love chocolate or cinnamon Chex and, randomly, The Malt o Meal version of Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds. 🙂
    Adorable kiddos! I have a three year old son and a fifteen month old daughter so I always love seeing updates on yours. <3

  • Catherine September 10, 2015, 5:44 pm

    A bowl of Cheerio’s (especially a freshly opened box), sliced banana, and milk has been a favorite breakfast of mine for as long as I can remember. In fact, it’s what was for breakfast today!

  • Amanda September 10, 2015, 5:52 pm

    I was so excited, too, when I heard Cheerios were going gluten free. I grew up loving yellow box Cheerios and was bummed my LO wouldn’t get to eat them since we are a gluten free household. As an adult I love Rice Chex with sliced bananas. Can’t wait to add Cheerios back into the mix.

  • Steph September 10, 2015, 6:02 pm

    As a child I rarely had cereal, but when I did it was a healthy option like Raison Bran. These days I’m all about Cheerios! They are great with yogurt. My little guy loves them as well 🙂

  • Erin M. September 10, 2015, 6:03 pm

    I loved almost all cereals as a kid and still do, but one of my favorites is Honey nut cheerios!

  • Nancy September 10, 2015, 6:16 pm

    plain Cheerios or frosted mini wheats!

  • Amy September 10, 2015, 6:18 pm

    As a kid-cracklin oat bran, today, oats n honey Special K! I can’t wait to give my 5 month old daughter Cheerios! (When we start solids )

  • Lisa E. September 10, 2015, 7:06 pm

    My favorite “splurge” cereal is Reese’s Puffs. Usually I stick with Cheerios or cornflakes though.

  • Dana S September 10, 2015, 7:16 pm

    as a kid, cocoa krispies. now I love multi grain Cheerios mmmm

  • Lauren S September 10, 2015, 7:20 pm

    I loved honey nut Cheerios and Rice Crispies when I was a kid and as an adult I still love honey nut Cheerios and also shredded mini wheats and raisin bran. Love cereal for snacking!

  • Allison A September 10, 2015, 7:33 pm

    My fave cereal currently is chocolate cheerios! Seriously, it is my jam. I don’t eat it for breakfast, but I love it as a snack. My 3 kiddos all love honey nut and multigrain cheerios too. Especially the baby, she eats them daily:)

  • Melanie September 10, 2015, 7:41 pm

    People always think I’m crazy for this but plain cheerios is actually my favorite cereal…and I eat them plain : ) They just taste so good on their own!

  • Emily S September 10, 2015, 7:54 pm

    My favorite childhood cereal was a three-way tie between cheerios (only the plain ones!), chex, and kix. As an adult, I still love cheerios but also throw in a box of frosted mini wheats sometimes. 😀

  • cori September 10, 2015, 8:18 pm

    As a kid I loved Triples cereal…can’t find it anymore. Boo. I also liked Waffle Crisp. Now, my favorite is probably Puffins cereal, original!

  • Sara September 10, 2015, 8:28 pm

    I love Cheerios, both as a kid and as an adult! My family loves plain, Honey Nut and the PB flavor!

  • Erin September 10, 2015, 8:28 pm

    Cinnamon Toast Crunch!!!! I only have it once every few years though.

    My daughter loves Cheerios.

  • Claire September 10, 2015, 8:34 pm

    Cheerios were a definite favorite as a kid! ( also probably because it was one of the only cereals my hippie parents allowed me to eat) BUT I still love cheerios- especially with whole milk and fruit.

  • Dana September 10, 2015, 8:44 pm

    As a kid I loved Raisin Bean, I know, a little weird. As an adult I loved Multi Grain Cheerios, until I found out my stomach issues were due to a barley sensitivity. I’m so excited to learn they’re going gluten/barley free soon!

  • Amanda September 10, 2015, 8:46 pm

    As a kid my favorite cereal was a toss up between lucky charms (pretty much just the charms), reese’s puffs, and frosted mini wheats. As an adult (technically…not really in spirit), my favorite is cheerios!! I love the peanut butter ones 🙂

    I wouldn’t hate to get a cheerios shirt…even though I’m not a kid 😉

  • Samantha September 10, 2015, 8:50 pm

    I loved Frosted Flakes as a kid. I still enjoy Frosted Flakes as an adult but my current favorite cereals are Crispix and Multigrain Cheerios. I am sure the yellow box will make an appearance in the near future for our first baby arriving in February. My guess is that the dogs will learn to love them too. 🙂

  • Emily September 10, 2015, 9:00 pm

    I loved Frosted Flakes as a kid (& truthfully still do) but Honey Nut Cheerios have become a favorite & staple in our house now.

  • chickie brewer September 10, 2015, 9:12 pm

    My favorite cereal as a kid was frosted flakes.. My favorite cereal now is cheerios… I especially love added blackberries to my cheerios!

  • Erin September 10, 2015, 9:17 pm

    There is a lot of discussion about Cheerios and whether they are safe for people with Celiac Disease. Many people with Celiac Disease have had really bad reactions.
    General Mills methods for testing the gluten have also been scrutinized and criticized.

    Gluten Dude has done several articles on it :

    Personally, as someone with severe Celiac Disease I am not willing to risk it because being glutened means that I am really sick and miserable for about 1 week. I am disappointed in General Mills. I don’t think they have gone far enough to make to their product truly gluten free and safe for people with Celiacs.

  • Sara N September 10, 2015, 9:22 pm

    As a kid, Captain Crunch. Now, Cracklin Oat Bran.

  • kathy v September 10, 2015, 9:43 pm

    kix cereal as a child, panda puffs as an adult!

  • Tara September 10, 2015, 9:51 pm

    We love cheerios too!! 🙂

  • Melissa September 10, 2015, 9:52 pm

    As a child, my favorite cereal was Life cereal and as an adult, my favorite cereal is Special K Red Berries!

  • Mary C September 10, 2015, 9:56 pm

    Golden Grahams….and now, Frosted Mini Wheats!

  • Carolyn September 10, 2015, 10:09 pm

    I loved Lucky Charms as a kid, although my mom didn’t allow us to eat it. Now my favorite is Panda Puffs.

  • Sunny September 10, 2015, 10:11 pm

    I heart chex! Those shirts are super cute as well

  • Ann September 10, 2015, 10:16 pm

    I am almost embarrassed to admit it, but I love Lucky Charms and Captain Crunch! So yummy!

    Thanks for the chance to win. We are a Cheerios family!

  • Jen September 10, 2015, 10:23 pm

    As a kid- cinnamon toast crunch. As an adult- Special K & multi grain Cheerios!

  • Lauren L September 10, 2015, 10:23 pm

    Honey Bunches of Oats has always been my favorite. However, I recently cut out gluten and dairy because I seem to have some sort of food sensitivity, and both my mom and sister can’t eat these food groups. Seems to be helping, but very sadly I haven’t been eating my favorite cereal since. I am very excited to hear Cheerios is going gluten free though!!

  • Dana B September 10, 2015, 11:03 pm

    I love Froot Loops when I was a kids. Now I love Chex and Peanut Butter Puffins

  • Barbara S September 11, 2015, 12:06 am

    Frosted mini wheats! Though it was probably cheerios when I was really little.

  • Heather A. September 11, 2015, 12:07 am

    I don’ t know what cereals aren’t my favourite, as a kid or an adult! Hah. Cheerios were & are definitely up there though and almost a permanent pantry staple (other favourites incl: Rice Krispies, Raisin Bran, etc. – and the special occasion cereals like froot loops and frosted flakes are always a treat)!.

  • Pamela September 11, 2015, 12:49 am

    I ate a lot of Cheerios as a kid! As an adult, I’ve been eating Chex…can’t wait to try the GF Cheerios and reacquaint myself with this brand…hoping they come to Canada 🙂

  • Sarah L September 11, 2015, 1:39 am

    I loved Wheaties as a kid, but I haven’t tried them lately. My favorite cereal as an adult is probably Puffins.

  • Kristen @ The Concrete Runner September 11, 2015, 6:48 am

    I am a big HN Cheerios fan, especially with vanilla almond milk and blueberries. But I’ll admit my favorite is Lucky Charms! My little guy’s (8mo) favorite food right now BY FAR is Cheerios! He shoves them in by the handful!

  • Emily September 11, 2015, 7:07 am

    Plain Cheerios all the way!! 🙂 I grew up eating them and my whole family eats them now! Our kids are 11 and 8 and still enjoy them regularly.

  • Joanna September 11, 2015, 7:14 am

    When i was a kid I loved Honey nut cherrios -It was the only sugary cereal my mom would let me eat. Eventually she let me get golden grahams and they are my favorite as an adult! When I was nursing I would have golden grahams with chocolate almond milk as a evening snack! it is so good!!

  • nicole September 11, 2015, 7:56 am

    As a child I only ate cheerios! Today I have a little variety but always go back to cheerios

  • Anna September 11, 2015, 8:40 am

    As a kid, my favorite cereal was Cinnamon Toast Crunch. I don’t eat much cereal as an adult, but when I was training for a marathon I wanted to eat Frosted Mini Wheats everyday.

  • Shannon September 11, 2015, 8:46 am

    Honey nut Cheerios!!!

  • Janelle September 11, 2015, 8:47 am

    i always like life and shredded wheat growing up, but now i am gluten free and excited to have Cheerios as an option again!

  • Brandy H. September 11, 2015, 8:58 am

    YES!!!! I am at work reading your post and had to stop myself from jumping out of my chair when I read this! I have Celiac and I miss eating Cheerios! I love them! So this is exciting stuff! And I have kids too so I am crossing my fingers on this one!

  • Melissa September 11, 2015, 9:17 am

    As a kid I remember some cereal called Basic 4 or something. It was “healthy” cereal in the 80s and it was expensive. My parents rarely would buy it. As an adult? Lucky Charms. I totally see the irony my cereal choice being healthier as a kid.
    I’m so excited Cheerios will be GF!! I started GF with my son a week ago and the transition has been TOUGH. He’s been great about it but it’s difficult in our small town to find GF foods.

  • Lauren September 11, 2015, 9:36 am

    I loved Kix when I was little! Now I love Chocolate Chex! And Chocolate Cheerios haha!

  • Amanda K. September 11, 2015, 9:48 am

    I have always loved Cheerios! My first word was actually “Cheerio.” But I said “whoa-whoas” and so now my whole family calls them “Whoa-whoas.”
    Such a great first grain for kids, and now my wheat-free mom can eat them!

  • Kristina N. September 11, 2015, 9:57 am

    Not sure if my last comment went through or not. Oops! I was such an odd kid. I loved shredded mini wheats and…grape nuts. What in the world?! Adults don’t even like grape nuts! I don’t keep too much cereal in the house now, but when I do I still eat shredded mini wheats and chex!

  • Jenn K September 11, 2015, 10:11 am

    My favorite cereal as a kid was Cap’n Crunch. As an adult (who’s gluten free) it’s Cinnamon Chex! Thanks General Mills! I have a 5mo old who will be starting solids soon and as a GF family we are DELIGHTED about the gf Cheerios!!

  • Stacy S September 11, 2015, 10:26 am

    Favorite cereal hands down has been cinnamon life and apple cinnamon cheerios! My 10 month old son loves cheerios as well – obviously just plain but he can’t ever get enough!

  • Anne Weber-Falk September 11, 2015, 10:29 am

    As a kid I loved Capn Crunch with crunch berries. As an adult I totally dig mixing plain Cherrios with the whole grain mix and once in a while I’ll add some frosted Cherrios for something different. Not a lot, just enough. I have a 57 year old kid, my husband! Get this, plain Cherrios is the only cereal he will eat and he has this every single day. Breakfast and snacks. I would say he eats it two or three times a day. If you could tell me where to find an adult sized shirt I’d appreciate it. He also loves pop culture and he would wear this shirt. It would go with his Quisp shirt and his Kodachrome shirt. Thanks!

  • Mama September 11, 2015, 10:35 am

    As a kid I loved cookie crisp, lol!! Now, I lean towards Kashi and their GoLean is my fav!! My kids love all the GM cereals, too!!

  • Kayla Puchalski September 11, 2015, 11:22 am

    As a kid I loved Cinnamon Toast Crunch. But now my favorites are the Apple Cheerios and Honey Nut Cheerios. A lot of times after a late evening workout I crave Honey Nut Cheerios and don’t feel too guilty eating them!

  • Stacey September 11, 2015, 11:35 am

    As a kid, we weren’t allowed to have sugar cereals at home, so Frosted Flakes was the biggest treat! Now, I love Rice Chex, and am so excited about GF Cheerios! My 9-month-old loves Cheerios too!

  • Stephanie September 11, 2015, 11:39 am

    I had a favorite Cheerios shirt, too! It was my favorite. Current favorite is Corn Chex.

  • Lindsay @ A Runnaroundd Life September 11, 2015, 11:46 am

    I LOVED Cinnamon Toast Crunch as a kid. So bad, haha.

  • Jen September 11, 2015, 12:17 pm

    As a kid and as an adult: Honey Nut Cherrios!

  • Ellie H September 11, 2015, 12:51 pm

    My favorite cereal as a kid was Crispix. I ate it every morning for years. Now I mix it up between Nature’s Path Oaty Bites and the like. I LOVE Cheerios though – they are a classic and always will be!

  • Emily September 11, 2015, 12:53 pm

    Hehe… I’m not sure my cereal favorite has changed yet since I was a kid. ;-D I really liked ‘Life’ cereal and Oatmeal Squares. 🙂 And I think they’re still my favorites.

  • Brandy September 11, 2015, 1:00 pm

    I loved Frosted Flakes as a kid but wasn’t allowed to have it often. As an adult I like Honey Nut Cheerios and Raisin Bran.

  • Leigh Anne September 11, 2015, 2:12 pm

    Honey nut was my childhood favorite. My husband has celiac so we are a g free household so no Cheerios here. We have been so excited to see the g free boxes here in Texas and I eat Honey Nut every day!! I’m pregnant with our first baby and I’m sure that will be a staple in his/her diet as well!

  • Ashley September 11, 2015, 2:20 pm

    I loved Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Frosted Shredded Wheat as a kid. Today, I love Multigrain Cheerios and Barbara’s Shredded Spoonfuls.
    I have a 4 year old and he loves Multigrain Cheerios too!! 🙂

  • Kaley September 11, 2015, 2:25 pm

    I LOVE Cherrios! Honey Nut is my favorite. Can’t wait to try the gluten free options.


  • LindaMc September 11, 2015, 3:10 pm

    I loved Lucky Charms as a kid. I still love them as an adult but I rarely eat them. I choose Raisin Bran now.

  • Mandi Siegler September 11, 2015, 3:42 pm

    As a child I LOVED Fruity Pebbles! As an adult it’s Honey Bunches of Oats. My little boy could eat Cheerio’s 3 meals a day! Absolutely loves them…so he def needs that shirt

  • stephanie w September 11, 2015, 3:59 pm

    I love Honey Nut Cheerios and could snack on them all day. My kids get plain Cheerios or Multigrain.

  • Bianca September 11, 2015, 4:05 pm

    cinnamon toast crunch!!! then and now 🙂

  • leatitia September 11, 2015, 4:57 pm

    My favorite cereal as a kid was Cinnamon Toast Crunch and it still is!

  • Kristin September 11, 2015, 5:54 pm

    As a kid I LOVED the yellow box Cheerios. Took them everywhere I went. In college I fell in love with the strawberry yogurt cheerios. They were my jam, and I’d snack on them plain. I don’t think they make them anymore, because I can never find them at the store. Now I love Honey Nut Cheerios. Yep, after all these years, I’m still a Cheerios kid.

  • Anya September 11, 2015, 6:20 pm

    I love Claire’s cute headband! Any chance you’d be willing to share where you got it?

    • Caitlin September 13, 2015, 10:32 am

      Its from headbands of hope, which is an awesome organization! for every headband you buy, one is given to a little girl in hospital who has lost her hair because of chemo.

  • Jamie R. September 11, 2015, 6:23 pm

    Kid – yellow box Cheerios
    Adult – Honey Nut Cheerios

  • Kelly Holden September 11, 2015, 6:26 pm

    Kix cereal. Loved it then, love it more now!

  • Crystal M. September 11, 2015, 6:46 pm

    My favorite as a kid was definitely Cinnamon Toast Crunch! I still love it as an adult, but I don’t eat it as much now. It’s a good option for when I want something sweet but don’t need to eat candy! lol

  • Kim September 11, 2015, 6:57 pm

    Cinnamon Toast crunch and always will be my absolute favorite cereal! And thanks to this post I know want some!

  • Stephanie September 11, 2015, 7:40 pm

    I loved froot loops as a kid! Mmm… I could go for a bowl right now! Would love to have a Cheerios shirt!

  • Brooke Gregg September 11, 2015, 8:02 pm

    Honey Nut Cheerios and I still love them to this day! When I was pregnant with my first child I ate them nearly every morning

  • Laura T. September 11, 2015, 8:04 pm

    I’m really big on mixing cereals – i love cracklin oat bran, mixed with some granola & the quaker oat squares

  • Colleen September 11, 2015, 8:53 pm

    Honey nut Cheerios as a kid and as an adult!

  • Marissa September 11, 2015, 9:10 pm

    Honey Nut Cherrios all the way! They were the best back then and still are! My son is 10 months old and Cherrios are his favorite snack (the yellow box is on the table now as I type!)

  • Kelsey @Chatterbox Blog September 11, 2015, 9:27 pm

    I was never much of a cereal kid because I could never eat it fast enough in the morning before school 🙂 But I always went for the plain cereals – Kix, Cheerios, Rice Krispies! Now I love relaxing on a Saturday morning with a bowl of Brown Rice Crispies with sliced almonds!

  • Tori L September 11, 2015, 11:28 pm

    I loved Cocoa Puffs and Lucky Charms growing up, and still do today! Yum!

  • Shannon September 12, 2015, 10:50 am

    As a kid I liked all the sugary cereals (Lucky Charms, French Toast Crunch, etc.). Now my favorite is either Oatmeal Squares or plain Cheerios!

  • Meaghan September 12, 2015, 11:48 am

    Original yellow box Cheerios has been my go-to for the last 33 years 🙂 I gave birth to my first baby on Monday morning, and brought a box of Cheerios to the hospital with me to eat after labor! Delicious. And I can’t wait for my baby girl to have her first “o’s” … but we’ll stick to just the milk half of the equation for now! 😉

  • Jenn September 12, 2015, 4:40 pm

    Cheerios! Unfortunately I grew up putting sugar on them. Wouldn’t now. Plus, I loved -and still do- put a chopped up banana in mine:)

  • Kelly September 12, 2015, 5:41 pm

    Cherrios and Wheaties were favorites as a kid – and my tastes haven’t changed much as an adult!

  • Emily September 12, 2015, 7:16 pm

    Honey Bunches of Oats — as a kid AND adult!

  • Alexis September 12, 2015, 7:37 pm

    Favorite cereal as a kid was apple jacks. I’m so happy Cheerios went GF!!

  • Stacie September 12, 2015, 11:43 pm

    My favorite cereal as a kid was Honey Nut Cheerios, but I still eat it all the time today! I still cannot get enough of it. It is so versatile and is yummy even eaten dry. Honey nut cheerios or BUST!

    Thanks to you and General Mills for the giveaway 🙂 They are truly an incredible company!

  • Audrey September 13, 2015, 2:03 am

    My favorite as a kid was Crispex or Kix. Now it would have to be Honey Nut Cheerios or Multi Grain Cheerios.

  • Nikki September 13, 2015, 7:58 am

    Cracklin Oat Bran

  • Kelly E. September 13, 2015, 12:25 pm

    I buy Cheerios often – and I have no kids! My other favorite cereal as a kid was Kix. I may or may not still buy those as an adult as well! 🙂

  • Nancy September 13, 2015, 5:37 pm

    I loved and still love grape nuts cereal with a bit of honey.

  • Grace September 13, 2015, 9:39 pm

    Cheerios have always been a favorite of mine – when I was a kid & even as an adult 🙂 I am beyond excited that they now offer gluten free Cheerios, as my son has celiac disease! I’m happy to be able to share a childhood favorite of mine, with him 🙂

  • Katie September 13, 2015, 10:00 pm

    Growing up, I only ate dry cereal, and only once in a blue moon (my favorite was Quaker Oatmeal Squares). Now, I eat yellow box Cheerios almost daily and at any time! I eat them dry, with milk, with peanut butter, in yogurt, or any other way I can think of!

    Honey Nut Cheerios…with sliced bananas and almond milk. So good! As a kid, I loved Honey Nut Cheerios dry, straight out of the box.

    Thanks for an awesome giveaway!

    My favorite cereal was Sugar Crisps. Now it is Golden Grahams.

    As a kid I loved Breakfast with Barbie cereal. My parents were really strict on no-sugar added cereal until the fateful day when my cool uncle – who didn’t have kids yet of course – let me choose whatever I wanted from the cereal aisle.
    I like nutty granola to add a crunch to yogurt. I don’t eat it much anymore, but when I was pregnant the only way I could stomach yogurt was mixing it with equal parts granola.

    We love cheerios, too! Does Claire have the Cheerios book? She’s probably the perfect age for it!

    Love Honey Nut Cheerios and also Raisin Bran Crunch. Yummm!

    I’m still a sucker for Cheerios and Honey Nut Cheerios. I also loved frosted flakes and frosted mini wheats but my mom would only allow those on occasion.

    I loved Captain Crunch and Lucky Charms as a kid (who didn’t!?), but now I’m more of a Quaker Oats, Cheerios, and Wheaties girl 😉

    I LOVED Cocoa Puffs especially the chocolate milk that you get after finishing them 😉

    My favorite cereal as a kid was Lucky Charms. Now, my favorite cereal is Quaker Oat Squares (although I have many close seconds). My boys love Cheerios though!!

    I love the multigrain Cheerios with milk! I like it simple!

  • Ashley September 21, 2015, 5:35 pm

    Love Apple Cinnamon Cheerios and just introduced Yellow box cheerios to the LO!
    I’m loving Special K Protein Brown Sugar Cinnamon right now… figured it was a “healthy” version of Cinnamon Toast Crunch.

    While most kids were probably really obsessed with the sugary “fun” cereals, I distinctly remember loving Frosted Cheerios and Apple Cinnamon Cheerios! My dad used to eat them, and I felt so cool as a little kid eating the same cereal as my dad!

    I love your blog and find it very inspirational.
    But as a scientist I just wanted to point you to two very good peer-reviewed (but easy to understand) articles about genetically modified foods

    I believe they are open access but if not email me and I will send them to you. Genetically modified food is not inherently bad. Genetic modification is an agricultural technology which can be used in a sensible way or in a bad way just like any other technology. I hope you take the time to read them.

    Cheerios and Cocoa Puffs. 🙂
