Cereal Treats Bars Review and Giveaway (ends 10/26)


Review:  Hip hip hooray!  The kids are back in school and the beautiful Fall weather is finally here!  For my family, however, Fall also means crazy overfilled schedules and lots of on-the-go snacking.  Unfortunately, the snacks aren’t always healthy (you don’t want to know how many calories are in the typical candy bar) or inexpensive (have you surveyed the prices of vending machines snacks lately?). 

Recently, however, we were given the opportunity to try Betty Crocker's Cereal Treats Bars in the Lucky Charms and Golden Grahams varieties. And what can I say, but it was love at first bite!  We especially loved the Golden Grahams which tasted like portable smores, but with way less calories. 

Check out these facts:
  • Flavor varieties include the ever popular Golden Grahams® (130 calories) and new Lucky Charms® Treats (100 calories), loaded with popular favorites like chocolate and marshmallows.
  • Cereal Treats Bars contain less than 140 calories per bar and are made with wholesome cereal, making them a snack option that you can feel good about giving your kids.
  • TWO Box Tops for Education seals on each box of Cereal Treat Bars, making earning cash for your school doubly cool!
For more information head on over to the Betty Crocker website .

Giveaway: Today, Betty Crocker/General Mills and My Blog Spark is offering one Metroreader follower (Note: to enter the giveaway you must publicly follow Metroreader) a Cereal Treats Bars Prize Pack which includes the following:



  • One box of Lucky Charms® Cereal Treats Bars



  • One box of Golden Grahams® Cereal Treats Bars



  • Lunch bag



  • Locker whiteboard



  • Colored pencil set

    Mandatory First Entry: Which Cereal Treats Bars variety are you most excited to try?

    Note: You must list your email address in the body of the comment (you can list it as mary123 (at) yahoo(dot)com). If you do not list your email address your entry will not count.

    Extra Entries: Follow me on twitter (DCMetroreader) and on Facebook (Metroreader). NOTE: These extra entries MUST be left in a separate comment or will not count.


  • Giveaway ends October 26th at noon EDT.  Good Luck!

    Disclosure: To facilitate this posting I received samples of the Cereal Treats Bars and associated promotional items mentioned in this review along with product information from Betty Crocker through MyBlogSpark. No compensation was received for the opinions expressed in this posting.
