Honeycomb Cereal Makes Breakfast Biggerer

This post brought to you by Honeycomb and Post Cereal. All opinions are my own.

With the kids heading off to school this week, I have been brainstorming way to expand their smaller summer breakfast into a “biggerer” option to help them stay focused until lunch. The kids love cereal, so I took this opportunity to introduce them to a childhood classic… Honeycomb.

The type of classics never go out of style. My first bite brought back so many memories!!! Honeycomb’s big honey flavor and big crunch make it the perfect breakfast or snack option.

Honeycomb combines sweetened corn and unique hexagonal shapes with big honey flavor, making it a staple for kids and cereal lovers nationwide.  The one-of-a-kind big shape and big honey flavor are sure to brighten up any breakfast or after school snack. In a bowl with milk or just a handful for a snack, it’s sure to satisfy.

Each spoonful of classic Honeycomb cereal is bursting with honey flavor for a “biggerer” breakfast option.

I have a fairly picky eater, and a BIG eater. Here are some of the “biggerer” breakfast combinations we’ve come up with that they enjoyed!

  • Eggs, toast and Honeycomb
  • Honeycomb “trail mix”… mix with nuts of your choice and a few chocolate candies or chips
  • Crunch the Honeycomb up a little and sprinkle it over a warm bowl of oatmeal
  • Protein pancakes with a bowl of Honeycomb
  • Crunched Honeycomb sprinkled over the above protein pancakes!
  • 1 tube of yogurt and a bowl of Honeycomb
  • Bagel with peanut butter (a drizzle of honey on top is delicious!) and a bowl of Honeycomb

How will YOU be making breakfast “biggerer” than ever before?
