You Can Put That In Cereal And It Actually Tastes Good?

The winner is:

cheerios peanutKaryn! An email has been sent to you. Congrats!


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.

No one.

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.

Not anymore.

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.

Two words:

Love it.

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.

  2. Sarah Sarah

    I fall in rank with the pb lovers…not obsessively but I do enjoy it on my bananas from time to time!


  3. Marsha Marsha

    We never really ate PB growing up but someone gave my toddler a PB&J sandwich a while back (which I totally didn’t get till I tasted it!). Now both my Little Dude and I are seriously hooked!


  4. Stephanie Stephanie

    My family loves peanut butter; especially my husband!

    I do love peanut butter!


  7. @lizzysdarcy @lizzysdarcy

    I am a late in life peanut butter lover. I wasn’t keen on it as a kid, but love it as an adult.


  8. I could eat PB by the spoon full! I can totally relate to your son.


  9. We love peanutbutter and we live in Canada 😉
    I had to laugh at your tweet about Americans commenting… and I don’t want you to kill your dog :)


  10. Is it wrong that I want to read your efforts at pushing something like, um, deodorant or floor wax?
    Get more of these gigs would ya?
    And yes, I’ll probably be bringing this home to my kids too, bunch of PB addicts.


  11. Adie Adie

    My daughter and I are both major peanut butter lovers!! These sound great and I can’t wait to try them!!! :)


  12. I was the girl who brought salmon salad sandwiches to school most of the time. And no one wanted to trade with me. Hmmm…. wonder why? I’m not as much of a peanut butter fan as my children are. My little guy comes home everyday for lunch and eats a PB&J sandwich (and then mentions that he wouldn’t be able to eat that sandwich if he had to stay at school for lunch). Good thing we live a block away or he’d be in the throes of peanut butter withdrawal everyday, :)

    I am not a lover. Only once in a great while I crave a white chocolate Reeses, but that’s like once a year. My kids however, are fanatics!!!!


  14. Kir Kir

    as long as it’s got chocolate all over it, yes, I adore peanut butter. :)

    honestly, if I had to pick, I’d take a tuna sandwich over a PB one any day…

    I love peanut butter sticking , all the taste!

    (and the PB cookies too..but don’t care for actual PB very much either…LOVE EM.=)


  15. Katie Katie

    I’m not Canadian so I can’t win your cereal . . . but – WHY is there a squirrel on the Canadian version of Cheerios?!

    Also, he would LOVE Peanut Butter Toast Crunch. It’s similar to Cinnamon Toast Crunch, but peanut butter flavored. SO good, almost as good as Reese’s PB cups!


  16. I do love peanut butter especially when covered in chocolate. My boys would love Peanut Butter Cheerios!


  17. Sunshine G Sunshine G

    I am a peanut butter fan – isn’t everyone??
