Craving Crunchy Crispix?

This is sponsored content by BlogHer and Kelloggs.



Psst...Be sure to keep reading 'til the end for a chance to win a $100 Visa gift card! CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED.

A couple of months ago, I got a box of Kellogg's Crispix at the store. It didn't last long! Chickie, my four-year-old, has developed a particular fondness for the crunchy yumminess of Crispix. After not eating it for a couple of years, I've rediscovered it. We've been going through box after box!




Crispix is currently my favorite Kellogg's breakfast cereal. It's got rice on one side, corn on the other, and it's in a deliciously crispy shape. (And it's even fat-free...until I put my creamy whole milk on it, that is!) It seems there are comparatively few foods that all four of us in the family enjoy, and Crispix is one of them.

Kellogg's makes another fat-free cereal with rice, one that's been around a very long time.



But I'll admit, my favorite way to eat Rice Krispies is a way that makes it a lot more delectable. Rice Krispies treats, anyone? (I was going to say that my favorite way to enjoy Rice Krispies is as a non-breakfast treat...but I'll admit it: If there are Rice Krispies treats in the house in the morning, there's a good chance they'll be part of my breakfast!)

Now it's your chance to win a $100 Visa gift card! For all the fine print and official rules of the contest, visit this link. Here's how to enter:

You can enter up to 2 times. Choose up to 2 of these 3 entry methods:
  • Leave a comment here sharing your favorite brand(s) of Kellogg's cereal. Feel free to refresh your memory by visiting the Kellogg's website and hovering your mouse over the "Brands" tab.
  • Tweet about this contest, and leave a comment with a link to your public Tweet. (Sorry, Tweets only, not Facebook posts.)
  • Post about this contest on your blog, and leave a link to the blog post.
Remember, you can only enter twice, and you need a separate comment for each entry. The contest will close next Monday. Good luck!

While not as healthy as regular Rice Krispies, I loved the Cocoa Krispies. What's not to love about a cereal that leaves behind chocolate milk?

stacief said...

My boys are huge fans of "snap, crackle and pop"! and I like rice crispy treats so I would have to say it is a unanimous favorite!

And I tweeted, which probably just means I've drawn more attention to the post so someone besides me will win. :) http://twitter.com/showmyface/status/22012143110

Bobbi said...

I bought a box of Rice Krispies a month ago, to make Rice Krispie Treats for a party. I ended up eating most of the box for breakfast before the party came! So it was time to buy a second box. :)

I also love Honey Smacks. My grandma always had them in the house for me. Man, that memory takes me back to when I was 4 and eating breakfast in their breakfast nook, with the sun shining through the windows.

Melinda said...

I am a little odd and my favorite is Cracklin' Oat Bran. I think it is really yummy.

The Carrolls said...

I love Cracklin' Oat Bran too! But I also like any cereal that has berries in it like Special K red Berries.

We eat a lot of Rice Krispies. My son loves rice Krispies but refuses to eat rice krispie treats if I make them, he would rather have them in a bowl any day!

I think its right down unAmerican to NOT love Rice Krispie Treats!! II mean really who doesn't love those things!!
My kids would eat them 24-7 if I let them (or made them that much!)
Our favorite during the school year is Corn Flakes with strawberries cut up or bananas. When it's the summertime and I'm much less mean and healthy my kids dig into Fruit Loops at will!
