Honey Bunches of Oats (the regular, boring Honey Roasted variety!) is one of my favorites. I was recently mailed a sample of the new flavor of Honey Bunches of Oats - Tropical Blend, to try and review. This cereal has crispy mango flavored flakes combined with real coconut shavings and coconut flavored granola clusters.
Per serving, a bowl of Honey Bunches of Oats Tropical Blends contains:
- 10 g Whole Grain
- 120 Calories
- 6g Sugar (well under my self-imposed 9g limit!)
- 9 Essential Vitamins & Minerals including 60% Daily Value of Iron
- 4 Wholesome Grains

I'll be honest with my review - this cereal is not my new favorite. It is definitely incredibly tropical tasting - I think it is a better summer cereal than a winter cereal! The amount of flavor in the first bite surprised me, especially compared to the original flavors of Honey Bunches of Oats. There was the trademark crunch that comes from the bunches of Honey Bunches of Oats cereal. But there was just something about the flavor that was just too...exotic for my taste in cereal. Perhaps my morning taste buds aren't sophisticated enough to handle so many bold flavors together early in the morning!
