The Original Kix are, as always, not too sweet and perfectly crunchy. I think I enjoyed more of them than C, as he preferred the Honey variety. J just likes Kix (he calls them Tix). He really was happy as long as he got some, and didn't care what flavor he had. One thing I really like about Kix is that the cereal is always affordable, is a bit sweet but not so much so that I'd consider it a "sugar cereal" and it's now made from whole grains, so it's even reasonably healthy. Kix has actually been one of my favorite cereals since I was a kid (and was a staple when I was in college), and I am so glad it's got the staying power it needs so that I can share it with my children.
In addition to the cereal, as I mentioned, we received a floor puzzle and flash cards (both counting themed). J hasn't gotten to do much with the puzzle yet but he LOVES the flash cards. He's a big fan of counting to six on every card, even if there are only two items pictured, just because he thinks it's funny. He'll literally spend an hour or more just looking at the cards and identifying the fruit/vegetable/plant/animal on each card and trying to get one of us to count with him. His new sippy cup has seen pretty much constant use as a water cup, since it's harder to spill than just a regular cup but not a traditional sippy, and the snack container gets used nearly every time we go on a longer car ride. J's favorite snack from the cup? Cereal, of course!
Kix and MyBlogSpark not only gave me the opportunity to try the cereal and get a prize pack, but one of you will win one too!
