Since its release in 1979, people have preferred the Cheerios’ sweeter younger brother, to the healthier original. After all these years, it’s no surprise that bee buzz can still convince us to buy Honey Nut Cheerios, and it’s no surprise why we still do.
In 1941, General Mills began producing CheeriOats cereal, later renamed Cheerios, which has since become one of the most popular and best-selling cereals of all time. The signature bright yellow box and heart-healthy breakfast appeal to just about everyone, and remain popular with kids and adults alike.
Other Cheerios flavors released since then include Cinnamon, Chocolate, Apple Cinnamon, Peanut Butter Chocolate, Banana Nut, Multigrain, Very Berry, Frosted, Blueberry, Toasted Coconut, Maple Syrup, Peach, Fruity, Pumpkin Spice and the most popular and famous , Honey Nuts. In 2011, it was the top-selling cereal in the United States.
Honey Nut Cheerios are made with real honey and are claimed to help lower cholesterol. Made from whole grain oats, it’s gluten-free, low in fat, a good source of iron, calcium and fiber, and contains 12 vitamins and minerals. The Buzz the Honeybee mascot and the classic Cheerios logo appear on each warm, sun-drenched box.
One cup of Honey Nut Cereal has 140 calories and 12 grams of sugar. Its big brother, Original Cheerios, has 140 calories and 2 grams of sugar, making it even healthier. That said, Honey Nut Cheerios are still a healthier choice than other General Mills cereals like Reese’s Puffs and Cinnamon Toast Crunch.
There was no particularly strong smell when I opened the box, but the granola itself looked exactly like the picture on the box. The iconic O shape that Cheerios are known for is still in fashion, and always will be.
Honey Nut Cheerios is a rare cereal that’s just as good without milk as with it. The sweetness of honey and a hint of nuttiness make this muesli perfect for any occasion. It’s also amazing for its crunchy texture before and after milk, though like regular Cheerios, it gets mushy pretty quickly.
This granola is adorable, but that’s what makes it great. It’s a great way to start the day. Milk afterward is also great because it retains all the sweetness and goodness of the cereal. Due to the small size of each piece, you can eat a lot with one scoop.
A super satisfying taste and texture (whether wet or dry), along with plenty of wholesome ingredients, make Honey Nut Cheerios a great way to start your day. Because they’re so small and light, they might not fill you up like other cereals, but they’re still a super filling breakfast. The classic nostalgic taste of honey nut whole oatmeal is as good as ever, and I can still have a bowl after many years. Honey Nut Cheerios are popular and instantly recognizable for good reason. This is a top-notch cereal that I recommend to people of all tastes and preferences.
