Cocoa Puffs Combo Review + Giveaway

My daughters were really excited when they got to try the brand new Cocoa Puffs Combos cereal from General Mills. They love Cocoa Puffs, and thought the mix of chocolate and vanilla looked very good.

It is actually pretty exciting because this is the first brand new cereal from Cocoa Puffs since they were introduced back in 1958. Now, not only do we get the great tasty chocolate puffs, but they added vanilla puffs too. This is such a great flavor combination, that a lot of companies do not use.

My daughters both loved this cereal. They ate through our first box very quickly. Normally they eat cereal one day, then something else the next. I usually end up begging them to eat some cereal so our milk doesn't go to waste. Not with these, they ate them daily for at least 5 days in a row.

I'm not a big fan of chocolaty food. Don't get me wrong, I love a good chocolate candy bar, but I do not like chocolate ice cream or really chocolate food. The mixture of chocolate puffs and vanilla puffs was just perfect. You get that taste of chocolate, but it is not overwhelming. Plus they are a whole grain cereal that contains Calcium and Vitamin D.

Now to the best part of this review, Amanda from Coyne PR was nice enough to send me 4 extra coupons for a free box of cereal for my readers! Four winners will each receive a coupon for a free box of Cocoa Puffs Combos Cereal, value up to $5.33 To enter just leave a comment on this post stating what your favorite cereal is.
