:Fruit Loops::

I was never big on giving my kids sugary cereal. I tried to stay away from it, but then I decided it wasn't horrible to have "special" cereal every once in awhile. And now we get it a lot. I try to stay away from the "really bad" stuff and stick with the less offensive stuff like Honey Nut Cheerios, Fruity Cheerios, Frosted Mini Wheats etc. One day I read an article on the good and the bad cereals out there, and was very surprised that Froot Loops were a decent choice!! Of course the kids love them and I do too!! Cereal is our #1 pick in the mornings, so easy!

When I got the chance to review the NEW Froot Loops, I was excited...that they were trying even harder to make the cereal more nutritious and that Id get a few free boxes to try!

I was so excited to try the New Froot Loops with FIBER, that I ripped into both boxes one night before dinner;) We also go the opportunity to try the Apple Jacks with Fiber but didn't get to compare, but I am sure the story is the same!

The verdict in our house is that they are.....GOOD. The taste is VERY close. The crunch is a bit different and I actually like the Froot Loops with Fiber crunch BETTER. My son is too young to know any difference and my daughter (shes 9) said she tasted a difference, but I'm the mom and my mouth said they were very similar, so similar I wouldn't be able to tell the difference if the box wasn't in front of me.

Kudos to the cereal companies for striving to make the cereals we turn to on busy school mornings a bit better for our kids!
