Reese’s Puffs Are the Way to My Heart

I love cereal and I love cereal that is bad for you, so it’s no surprise that a few of my faves growing up included:

Some other, lower-rated cereals I found myself occasionally trying included:

(I love how anything with Fred Flinstone is guaranteed to provide some form of vitamin.)

Recently a co-worker of mine informed me that her husband brought home a box of Peanut Butter Cheerios. I thought she was joking at first, because the idea seems too good to be true. I didn’t think Cheerios could actually top their decision to market chocolate Cheerios, but there they go surprising me. Anyway, I picked up a box at Walmart and cracked open the box before I was even out of the parking lot. I immediately loved it, but noticed a familiarity in the taste. Then it hit me. This flavor of  Cheerios tasted like the peanut butter Reese’s Puffs! I couldn’t believe that I was actually munching on something that tasted so much like my favorite childhood cereal.


After I controlled my appetite and focused on driving, (and cops think they should be worried about texting, ha) I started thinking about how amazing it would be to combine the chocolate with the peanut butter Cheerios to make the perfect healthy spin on Reese’s Puffs! Now I’m sure the combo won’t be perfect, as I’ve noted that the chocolate ones taste more like Cocoa Puffs, but I just know that this cereal creation is bound to be a winner.

God I love food.

If you still find yourself craving kid cereal like I do, try some of these substitutes:

  • If you love Cinnamon Toast Crunch, try Cinnamon Rice Chex
  • If you love Cocoa Puffs, try Chocolate Cheerios
  • If you love Lucky Charms, try Mom’s Best Natural Mallow Oats

My Healthy Tip of the Day: Get to the grocery store before 9pm at night. I decided to go late Sunday night and found that every single container of Chobani Greek yogurt was GONE. This is what I ended up with:

PS: I don’t eat any of the cereal from that list above anymore unless it’s a special occasion.
