From Jay Leno's March 1 Tonight Show monologue:
HAVE YOU HEARD ABOUT THIS? THERE IS A NEW BREAKFAST CEREAL OUT CALLED CHOCOLATE CHEERIOS. WHAT, HAS CHEERIOS GIVEN UP NOW? CHOCOLATE CHEERIOS, WHAT’S THAT? ARE THEY EVEN CHEERIOS ANYMORE? AREN’T THEY JUST DOUGHNUTS IN MILK NOW?
He obviously hasn't tried them, because he wouldn't be dissing them if he did.
The second General Mills came out with Chocolate Cheerios I bought a box and rejoiced. Yay! A whole cup of chocolatey goodness for the same calories as a little chunk of the real thing. My Blog Spark sent me a gift pack with another box of cereal so that was just icing on the cake.
Actually, it wasn't cake, it was chocolate cereal. A little better for you. The fiber content is kinda "meh" but it's made with real cocoa, which is high in antioxidants, and the cereal is vitamin fortified.
Don't get me wrong, this ain't health food. This won't be a breakfast staple; it'll be a prime-time TV-watching snack, perfect for when you get a chocolate/crunchy craving. The key is to eat the Chocolate Cheerios one at a time, to slow yourself down and make that 100 calories count.(I received the cereal, gift pack and giveaway from Cheerios through MyBlogSpark.)
