The winner is:
I was the odd kid in school who never brought a PB&J sandwich in my lunch. It was like I was committing some sort of grade school sin when I whipped out my tuna fish sandwich. They called me tuna in kindergarten. No one wants to be called tuna.
Every kid has their kryptonite. Onions. Carrots. Anything green. Mine was peanut butter. I wanted nothing to do with it’s gross smell and it’s thick consistency. It was like childhood denture cement on the roof of your mouth. And what in the world was with the oil that collected like a pond in the middle of the jar?
I just didn’t like it.
I still don’t.
When I came home from work one day, I caught my husband landing the spoon airplane in my son’s mouth. I watched in horror as my son’s tongue clapped working to dissolve the stuff. When he finished, he shot me a grin in satisfaction and revealed peanut butter slathered across his teeth.
All 4 of them.
I immediately knew I was in trouble.
He was hooked.
Since then, all he wants to eat is peanut butter. We go through jars faster than Shawn changes his boxers. In other words, it is about a week or so.
My husband is attractive like that.
As the first day of school approached, we knew that things were going to be difficult for our son. We received many notifications that there were children with severe peanut allergies in his class and the school in general. We discussed allergies with him and how he couldn’t have anything with peanuts in them including his beloved peanut butter sandwiches.
He was not happy, but he said, “I don’t want to make my friends very sick.”
The transition went better than we anticipated. He started to eat only cereal at breakfast, reserving peanut butter to weekends.
Every single peanut butter, cereal, Cheerios lover, meet new General Mills Peanut Butter Cheerios.
General Mills will be releasing this limited time offer peanut butter loving goodness in Canada on March 4th 2013.
And because General Mills is awesome, they sent our family a box to try.
I opted out of taste testing this cereal, but my two boys gladly took reign.
My son gobbled up 2 bowls of it and I couldn’t get his chubby fingers out of the box. And just like any other brand of Cheerios, they are just as awesome without milk (so says the boys).
I really like that this also doubles as a fantastic after school snack.
