Spice Up Your Cereal | www.tasteandtellblog.com

Growing up, the only time we would ever get cereal was on Saturday mornings. That was the morning my parents got to sleep in, so we got to get up and get ourselves cereal for breakfast. I have to admit – I can’t wait until my kids are old enough to get themselves cereal in the morning. I’ve pretty much forgotten how it feels to sleep in!!

Today? Well, I’m not as good as my mom was at making breakfast every morning. Part of it is because my kids are just too impatient to wait for breakfast, and the other part is because I know my kids love cereal and will always eat it if it is given to them.

But cereal isn’t just for breakfast. There are lots of ways to change up your cereal routine! Today, I’m teaming up with Fiber One to bring you 3 new mix-in ideas to spice up your cereal routine. Make sure you check out their Facebook page where they will be sharing 30 mix in ideas in 30 hours! No more regular old cereal!!

Here are 3 fun ways to spice up your cereal.

    This is so fun and really perfect for the upcoming (hopefully) hot weather!! All the combos so so good!!

  2. Oh I love all three combos you have here! One for any mood I might be in! :)

  3. These are such awesome ideas, Deborah!

  4. I love cereal mixes. I find they are (at least in my mind healthier) than munching on a packet of crisps. In Australia we have one called “Nuts and bolts”, which is savoury malted grain and peanut mix.

  5. I’m still a little big kid eating cereals for breakfast and, sometimes for dinner when I don’t feel like cooking. I should try the spicy ones!!

  6. Joanne says:

    I feel kind of like I need to have a cereal par-TAY after reading this!

  7. Growing up, I used to eat so much cereal, I’m surprised I didn’t turn into it :) Love any and all!

  8. I eat cereal every day for dinner now so this is right up my alley!

  9. Emily says:

    I love all of these fun ideas!

  10. I love cereal. I don’t eat it for breakfast often but it’s my late night go to snack! You’d have to lock up the cinnamon-caramel mix as my self control would go out the window and I think I’d gobble it up all by myself!

    Oh man, this looks so addicting! I love mixes like this :)
