Light Treat of the Week: Multi Grain Cheerios Peanut Butter

Have you tried this?! Did you know that Cheerios now come in peanut butter? I saw the commercials on television, and I knew I had to try them. After all, I love everything peanut butter. I did not let myself get too excited because it seemed too good to be true. If Cheerios is trying to label them as healthy, they can't be as delicious as I would hope. I'm happy to report that this cereal proved me wrong. 

The first grocery store I checked was sold out of the peanut butter Multi Grain Cheerios, but I was determined to find them. We found them at the second store we checked. The peanut butter variety only comes in the smaller of the boxes. Dan and I were so eager to try it that we had a bowl for dessert. The Cheerios have the right amount of peanut butter flavor-- not too much that it's overpowering and fake but enough that you notice it. It really hit the spot.

I'm usually not a cereal person. I joke that for me, cereal is the anti-breakfast. Rather than satisfy my appetite, cereal just makes me hungry in an hour. So, instead of eating the peanut butter Multi Grain Cheerios for breakfast, I've been munching on it dry as a snack, as a topping on fat free chocolate pudding, or as a dessert with milk and a sliced banana. Dan and I enjoyed it so much, we have already bought our second box. I will be terribly disappointed if Cheerios discontinues this flavor. They really did it right with the peanut butter Cheerios!

If you're as big of a peanut butter fan as I am, I highly recommend you try the new peanut butter Cheerios. Multi Grain Cheerios Peanut Butter has only 3 WW Points+ for 3/4 of a cup (without milk). That's the same point value as my low calorie Fiber One cereal! You can find more detailed nutritional information here. I recommend eating it with sliced banana :)  Try it. Let me know what you think.
