What's the big deal about Young Living

[The Good] Cereal and Hot Wheels Giveaway

I got a package in the mail from General Mills and Hot Wheels, through MyBlogSpark.

This is what we found when we opened the box.

You would have thought there were gold bars, or at the very least Snickers bars in there, the way my children reacted.

There was clapping and shrieking about "the GOOD cereal" and "We neverrrrr get the GOOD cereal!"

Whatever. Children just don't appreciate the good ol' black and white packaged generic brands, do they?

There is something about colorful packaging and a free toy [inside specially marked boxes] that makes kids giddy.

If you would like to find out how your kids would react to winning a box like the one I got, delivered right to your door, simply leave a comment on this post answering this question:

What is your favorite cereal?

  1. Well, I’m a little afraid to admit it – but I love Lucky Charms! They are magically delicious. Yummy!

  2. Elizabeth W says:

    Fruit loops!

  3. Cheerios actually. That haven’t made a generic that can top Cheerios…or even hold a candle to a good ole box of Cheerios and believe me I have tried lol.

  4. Frosted Mini Wheats.

  5. Are you serious a cereal giveaway….you see cereal is a staple at our house;)
    You can’t go wrong all the way from Oops! All Berries to Corn Flakes w/sugar and bananas !! My favorite Reese’s or Trix! Shhh…

  6. Two thumbs up for Lucky Charms!

  7. I would definetly say Reeses Puffs or cinnimon toast crunch! :)

  8. Lucky Charms!!!! We have regular cereal all week but Saturday nights are special: JUNK CEREAL NIGHT!!! It’s like an official holiday in our home!!! I buy junk cereals on sale and then on Saturday I make sure we have 2 gallons of milk for the crew! I’d LOVE to win!!! Thanks! Hope whoever wins will start JUNK CEREAL NIGHT in their home!!! (I have friends and neighbors who think I’m nuts and on the other side that think I am a fun mom! The comments are always interesting.)

  9. I’m a Lucky Charms gal if I’m eating cold cereal. :) Also like Apple Jacks on that rare occasion. They are both yummy without milk which I can’t have. :)

  10. i love corn pops don’t even know if they still make them any more but my favorite as a kid

  11. It is a close race between Frosted Flakes and Cinnamon Toast Crunch.

  12. I love Captain Crunch!

  13. I twittered Win a Big G Hot Wheels prize package @SmockityFrocks through #MyBlogSpark. http://wp.me/pMqqr-13I

  15. reeses puff

  16. Kat Menard says:

    We love cereal at our house–but for the kids i usually buy Cheerios or Chex–sometimes we step it up and get Frosted Flakes. I bought Reeses Puffs a while back–and after i caught myself eating another bowl before bed (my 3rd) –and when i was filled with sadness when the box emptied the next morning–i decided i probably shouldn’t buy them again, they are from the devil!!!! super delicious!!!

  17. Our favorites change, but one that comes around a lot is the Malt-o-Meal brand “Marshmallow Mateys”.

  18. I love frosted Mini Wheats!

  19. I tweeted about this giveaway!

  20. Cinnamon Toast Crunch!

  21. We love Cinnamon Toast Crunch!

  22. Cinnamon toast crunch is my favorite!

  23. I like pretty much anything with sugar in it. Or, bunches of things.

  24. I like Honey Bunches of Oats!

  25. I tweeted! (@LillaRosePaulaR)

  26. My favorite is Lucky Charms with Cheerios a close second!

  27. yay for unhealthy LUCKY CHARS that i only eat when i go to my parents (my mom gets them especially for me when i come home.) yum!

  28. I hardly ever buy cereal. My favorite is Kashi shredded wheat, but this would certainly be appreciated at my house. 😉

  29. Jessica Martinez says:

    Fruity Pebbles. Think I’ll pick some up today :)

  30. i love lucky charms! i know, i know- but i do!

  31. Jeri Riddick says:

    Kat Menard, your comment made me lol. I’m shocked at all the sweet tooths from these moms! My favorite is Special K Cinnamon Pecan. I’ve never eaten Special K, but had a free coupon for this one and oh, I fell in love. It’s pricey though at $3/box for a not very large box. My non nut eating husband even loved it, but alas his favorite is Kelloggs Raisin Bran Crunch which btw is the same price as the generic box so we get the name brand one.

  32. My favorite, hmmm, I like Lucky Charms, but I think Golden Grahams are my absolute favorite! (Cinnamon Life is up there too! :)

  33. Gillian C. says:

    cinnamon toast crunch!

  34. My husband and I love Cinnamon Toast Crunch so much its been nicknamed crack. It is just wong to eat that stuff. So sinful! I think I need a box 😉

  35. Definitely Frosted Mini Wheats – from the time I was little!!! Love those!But my kids would be just like yours in seeing a box with all of these – these kinds are just legends around our house!!

  36. cinnamon toast crunch has always been my favorite!

  37. I’m a Special K kind of girl, I’m afraid. But my hubby and kiddos sure love Fruit Loops and Cinnamon Toast Crunch! :)

  38. I like Crispix with some sugar on top!

  39. honey nut chex! I eat it dry and count it as dessert.

  40. Heather Wawa says:

    Honestly, my favorite is Crispix.

    I’d never pass up a bowl of Peanutbutter Cap’n crunch, though.

  41. I just love cinnamon toast crunch!

  42. Lucky Charms for me. Hubs prefers my homemade granola. His loss :)

  43. Life would be my favorite, though our most commonly purchased one is generic cheerios.

  44. It really IS very funny that so many people LOVE the junk cereal! Me included, altho I mostly eat Great Value raisin bran, which, incidentally, I love! But, probably my favorite is…yes…Lucky Charms, like so many others!!!! 😀 Yummmm…. As for my 4 little ones, they pretty much like any, amazingly. They even choose a low/no sugar one over junk ones many times! Therefore I don’t buy ‘bad’ ones very often because I WOULD EAT IT and I DO NOT NEED IT!! My hips show it…. :(

  45. Cinnamon Toast Crunch!

  46. At the moment, I am really enjoying the Whole Grain Cheerios :) My 21 month old loves shredded wheat and my five year old is a big fan of the Banana Bread one from Post Selects :) My husband will basically eat anything that keeps some crunch when in milk LOL

  47. Lucky Charms for me! I love the marshmallows.

  48. We live captain crunch for a treat, but usually we don’t buy it. We make our own granola and eat a lot of oatmeal.

  49. Jenny in CO says:

    It totally depends on my mood. Sometimes I like Grape Nuts or Special K Red Berries. Other times I want Lucky Charms, Golden Grahams, or plain Cap’n Crunch :)

  50. Jessica M. says:

    I love Chex cereal as a snack. Wheat, rice , or corn!

  51. Cheerios, and actually I was a home schooled child and we also never got the good cereal:) Generic most of the home. When we stayed in a hotel and the continental breakfast had the mini boxes we were in heaven!

  52. Oh the Lucky Charms call me, nightly. We call it dessert cereal :)

  53. Hands down…Cinnamon Toast Crunch!!!

  54. Peanut butter Cap n’ Crunch. They go really fast!

  55. Having 2 toddlers means we go through a significant amount of cheerios here. :) My personal favorites are raisin bran crunch and cocoa puffs. Not that I get cocoa puffs like EVER. When I was a kid I got to pick a box of “junk food cereal” for my birthday. It was always cocoa puffs or capt. crunch.

  56. In my house we fight over Multigrain Cheerios and Raisin Nut Bran the most.

  57. I love Honey Nut Cheerios.

  58. tweet-http://twitter.com/#!/mami2jcn/status/36790159630405632

  59. Cinnamon Toast Crunch for sure !!

  61. Jennifer H says:

    Love Cinnamon Toast Crunch! Who needs a bowl and milk. Eat it right out of the box. Yummmm.

  62. Jennifer H says:

    I tweeted about this giveaway.

  63. I’ll have to admit I’m with the kids — our favorite family cereal is Honey Nut Cheerios.

  64. Reeses Puffs are the best!!!!!

  65. Fruit Loops! The only good thing about my husband going out of town is that I never cook. We all eat cereal every night for supper! How Lame is that???

  66. I love Multigrain Cheerios. My kids-they would absolutely flip if they received a box with so many choices! Big fun!

  67. Frosted Mini Wheats–Love them!

  68. I love Reese’s Puffs!

  69. My family and I all LOVE Chex. Yum! Thanks for the giveaway!

  70. Melissareads says:

    Honey bunches of oats. I make my own frugal version by making granola and adding store brand cornflakes.

  71. Amy Walton says:

    Lucky Charms and Reeses Puffs are the favorites around here! :)

  72. Depends on my mood… Could be Fruit Loops, Lucky Charms, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, or even Raisin Bran!

  73. Oh I LOVE lucky charms, though I like the Reece’s too!

  74. Cinnamon Toast Crunch! Yumm!

  75. Cap’n Crunch. Don’t tell . . .

  76. Jennifer Short says:

    I absolutley LOVE Count Chocula! :)

  77. We also NEVER buy the good stuff…Ha! My poor children. They would love to receive such a package!

  78. By the way, my favorite would have to be good ol’ Cheerios!

  79. My kids would think it was Christmas. They don’t get the fun cereal but maybe once or twice a year if that so they would love all that sugar.
