I'm Part of the Kellogger's Network!

Kellogger's Network Welcome Kit I Received
When I was first welcomed into the Kelloogger's Network, I was very excited!  This is because Kellogg's is a name that my family has stood behind for THREE generations.  My grandparents have always had Kellogg's Corn Flakes in their pantry for as long as I can remember.  And as a child, I fondly recall my grandma making a puzzle out of the front of a Kellogg's Corn Flakes cereal box to entertain me.  Good times!

Kellogg's Cereals Have Been Around Since 1906!
My Family Has Enjoyed Kellogg's For 3 Generations!
What makes Kellogg's a winning combination to me, is that their products are tasty, there are many selections, and you can choose a high-nutrition option for your family.  I know that I do regularly serve Kellogg's products in my household.  Although Kellogg's Corn Flakes and Rice Krispies are old favourites, we have also embraced some of the "newer" varieties into our regular repetoire.


The Kellogg's Network welcome kit that I received allowed me to try some new Kellogg's products.  There were two different cereals: Krave (chocolate and double chocolate varieties) and Special K Low Fat Granola.  There were also some awesome goodies in the welcome kit such as Special K Crisps (Cinnamon Brown Sugar and Chocolate varieties), a great Fruit Loops tee, a portable cereal and milk bowl (with attached spoon) for the kids to take to school, cool pens, magnetic notepad & a USB stick.  Thanks!
Toucan Sam Fruit Loops Swag!
I have to admit that all Kellogg's products went over extremely well in our household.  Specifically, all products were quickly eaten with none left!  The first product that I tried out on the kids was Krave Chocolate cereal.  They are crisp rectangles loaded with chocolate.  I gave the kids a small amount to test out, but soon they asked for a full-sized portion.  I tried the Krave cereal and it was a big treat!  If you love chocolate, then it will give you your fix.  Double Chocolate Krave was for the EXTREME chocolate lover!

Do You Have a Chocolate "Kraving"?

The next day my family tried the Kellogg's Special K Low Fat Granola for breakfast.  My husband and I enjoyed this immensely, as did the kids.  I liked that the granola had a little taste of honey to add to its sweetness.  My kids are used to granola cereals, as my husband eats these regularly.  He likes to mix extra nuts, raisins, dried cranberries into his granola, and often stirs lots of yogurt into it and has it as muesli.  We would definitely purchase the Kellogg's Special K Low Fat Granola cereal again, as it offers a nutritional level that I am comfortable with for our family. 

Our family also devoured the Special K Cinnamon Brown Sugar and Chocolate flavour crisps!  Each package comes with 5 sealed pouches, with 2 satisfying Crisps per pouch.  I found that they were perfect as a snack, and liked that each pouch of 2 Crisps was only 100 calories.  The portion-controlled pouches are perfect if you want to watch calorie intake.

What favourite cereals did you have as a child?  What are your favourites today?  What is your favourite Kellogg's products?  Have you tried any of the products I have reviewed today?

  1. Congratulations.
    I haven't tried the Krave yet, as I'm not a huge fan of *coff* sugary not-so-healthy cereals. I'm more of a corn flakes kind of gal. I keep seeing it in the stores, maybe I'll buy some for dessert. :P
    I have tried the Special K one though. It's really good. We used to eat granola on yogurt. Maybe it's time to share the goodness with my daughters.

    1. Brianna, you really like Corn Flakes! It is easy to go through lots of a favourite cereal. In our household, we eat cereal not only for breakfast, but when we need something quick when we're on the go.

    1. FallenPixels, I did like the chocolate Special K Crisps. They are chocolate striped on the top, with chocolate in the centre. I did find they satisfied me when I wanted a chocolate fix. Definitely worth trying.

  6. My mom ALWAYS had corn flakes on the shelf when I was growing up. My mom would refuse to buy me frosted flakes and I remember pouring sugar into my bowl of corn flakes so it kind of tasted like frosted flakes. My kids favourite cereal right now is the krave chocolate cereal. It's so good!
