When I brought a box of this cereal home, I expected it to taste like Honey Nut Cheerios.  But as I poured unsweetened almond milk into my bowl of checkered squares, I had a feeling it may be different than I imagined.  I envisioned the Honey Bee from “The Other One” as I scooped up a spoonful of right-angled shapes and chewed the sweetened cereal.  The crunch sensation brought me back to Christmas when my mother-in-law makes a huge batch of Chex Mix.  At 9 grams of sugar per serving, I expected it to taste sweeter than it did, but I also had a stuffy nose from a cold at the time.

I wasn’t that impressed by them, but they definitely had a hint of almond and honey flavor.  I also think that if I had used unsweetened vanilla almond milk instead, I would have had a different reaction.  My husband had the Gluten-Free Honey Nut Chex Cereal with vanilla milk and he said they tasted like marshmallows.  After the Cheerios incident, I have tried to stay away from cereal again.  I loved cereal as a child, but I have grown out of the habit in the past two years.  I am please to see more and more companies going gluten-free with old favorites.  If you like Honey Nut Cheerios and Chex Mix, you may want to give these a try.
