Honey Bunches of Oats Review / Giveaway

honey bunches of oats
Here at the Frugal Follies household, we eat a lot of breakfast cereal.  I mean, a lot of cereal.  It is all my husband and eldest daughter will eat for breakfast, unless I manage to have the time to make eggs in the morning.  And with our busy schedules, that isn't often.  My younger two daughters also love to eat cereal in the morning.  And all three girls often like it as a snack, with the eldest often having it as a late-night snack. So needless to say, we go through a lot of cereal.

I challenge myself to pay no more than $1.50 per box of cereal.  So far, I don't think I've had to go over that price point all year.  I sometimes buy cereal at ALDI in the discount aisle, where I've found house-brands of cereal for 99¢ per box or even 50¢ per box.  But most of the time, I buy cereal at Publix which is on a buy one, get one free sale.  And I only buy it when I have two high-value coupons.

Honey Bunches of Oats is one of the cereals I've been able to buy often at that price point.  Before I started couponing, I don't think I had ever bought that brand.  But now, when it's on sale for buy one, get one free at $4.49, that means each box is $2.25.  When I have two $1/1 Honey Bunches of Oats Fruit Blends Cereal printable coupon, that means each box is $1.25  Or if I have two $1.10/1 Post Honey Bunches of Oats New Fruit Blends printable coupon, it's only $1.15 per box. (Publix allows two coupons for BOGO items; check with your store to see if this is allowed.)

So they're affordable, but how do they taste?  I had the opportunity to try Honey Bunches of Oats - Honey Roasted now with More Granola Bunches.  In order to make sure I had the chance to try it before my crew ate it up, I had to hide the box on the top shelf of my pantry.  I had a bowl and of course, it was delicious!  Lots of granola bunches (more than I remembered!) mixed in with the cornflakes, with just a hint of sweetness.  But of course, my family quickly found the opened box and devoured it.

I'm hoping that maybe you'll have better luck at keeping your family from scarfing down the box.  So Frugal Follies is hosting a giveaway for 5 free boxes of Honey Bunches of Oats cereal!

The winner will receive 5 coupons, each for a free box of Honey Bunches of Oats cereal, up to $4.49 in value and good for any box 13 oz or larger.  The expiration date on these coupons is 6/30/13.

(And if you wait for a buy one, get one free sale, you can get 10 free boxes with the 5 coupons!)

To enter, use the Rafflecopter below!  The giveaway is open to US residents aged 18 and older. This giveaway will end on Friday, June 8th, at 12:01 am Eastern time.  If you are the winner, I will contact you shortly thereafter, and you will have 72 hours to respond.  If you do not respond within that time, your entry will be  declared invalid and a new winner will be chosen.

Honey Bunches of Oats is a staple in our pantry. Great "bang for your buck" as it has the granola (and the new raisin variety) that is more filling than other cereals so goes farther. :-) Thanks!
