Review: Wild Animal Crunch Cereal

Kelloggs (through MomCentral) sent us a free box of their new cereal, Wild Animal Crunch. They have teamed up with Animal Planet and have created this yummy cereal with tons of information about animals on the box.

My boys loved the box. We received a box with polar bears on the front, and my boys spent some time remembering the polar bears we saw at the Milwaukee Zoo last summer. C immediately turned the box around and began reading the animal facts and wanted to complete the crossword puzzle.

The cereal has a slightly sweet flavor and has a soft feel. The cereal is shaped like dolphins, elephants and turtles -- but I only know that because I read it on the inside of the box. L liked the cereal the best, and the boys said they would eat it, but preferred more crunch to their cereal. C almost didn't try it because the cereal is vanilla-chocolate flavored and he's on an anti-chocolate kick at the moment. He did try it, however, and said he couldn't really taste any chocolate, so it was okay. The flavor of the cereal is very mild.

I like Kelloggs "Nutrition at a Glance" labeling on their boxes. It is nice and large print giving the basic information about each serving, including the percentages of "guideline daily amounts." A 3/4 cup serving of this cereal has 100 calories, 1g fat, 130mg of sodium, 8g sugar, 3g fiber and 15mg of Vitamin C. You can still find all the detailed nutritional information on the side panel -- but these days I need a magnifying glass to read that fine print! I really appreciate being able to quickly see how much fiber and sugar is in each serving!

You can see that L enjoyed it!
