Start Your Day with a Smile with Honey Bunches of Oats {Review & Giveaway}

Honey Bunches of Oats logo
When it comes to favorites, my girls seem to easily be able to name theirs. Favorite color, favorite animal, favorite food, they can tick them off one after another. Me, on the other hand? Not so much.

How do you not have a favorite color, Mama? You have to have one!

You don't have any suggestions on a restaurant to go to? Don't you have a favorite?

Sorry, I'm just typically pretty laid back, so there aren't usually "bests" that stick out to me more than others.

Except, of course, when it comes to cereal. I'm fortunate that my husband does the majority of the grocery shopping around here, but that also means that there's the chance that he'll come home and will have forgotten the single box of cereal that must be in our cupboard at all times. Breakfast just isn't the same without Honey Bunches of Oats!

Honey Bunches of Oats

What started back with the original Honey Bunches of Oats, the collection of flavors has grown to now include 12 different varieties. How is it possible to choose a favorite flavor when there is Strawberry, Vanilla Bunches, Cinnamon Bunches, Pecan Bunches, Just Bunches, the new Fruit Blends in Peach Raspberry and Banana Blueberry, and more?

No matter what your preferences, however, there is a box that is sure to provide the crispy flakes and tasty, crunchy granola clusters with just a touch of honey that the whole family will enjoy! After all, who can resist the delicious crunch that comes along with so many whole grains (10g of whole grain per serving)?

Even though we were already big fans of this cereal in our house, when a package of Honey Bunches of Oats arrived, it was just the thing to bring a smile to our faces.

It's no secret that, around here, starting the day with a smile can sometimes be a little difficult.

Whether we are rushing to get out the door on time, can't find anything to pack for lunch, or simply woke up on the wrong side of the bed, a bowl of delicious, wholesome Honey Bunches of Oats truly has the ability to serve up a smile for all of us.

Big Sister E's favorite: Honey Bunches of Oats Greek Honey Crunch

But along with the fantastic flavors found right in your bowl, right now Honey Bunches of Oats is giving you yet another reason to smile... by offering the chance to win a trip anywhere in the United States!

That's right! The Send a Smile Win a Trip sweepstakes is on now and your smile could bring home the grand prize!

Send a Smile Win a Trip Sweepstakes

This contest couldn't be much easier. Simply snap a photo of yourself (plus an adorable member of your family, if you wish) and upload it to Instagram with the tag #HoneyBunchesofSmiles as well as the city you are in and the city you are sending your smile to (and hoping to win a trip to)!

For example, I might upload this great family photo of ours with the tags: #HoneyBunchesofSmiles #Madison to #Tucson to send my mom a smile down in Arizona!

Honey Bunches of Oats sweepstakes

Where would you like to send a smile? More important, where would you like to go on your free trip anywhere in the United States? Hurry over and let Honey Bunches of Oats know by April 1, 2013 before this sweepstakes ends!

When it comes to starting off the day in a healthy, delicious way, Honey Bunches of Oats has always been the first box that we reach for in the cupboard.
