Mornings and Breakfast (Giveaway)

Most people know, mornings are not my thing.
Don't get me wrong, waking up each morning is certainly better than the alternative....but oh how I dread getting started each morning.
Now that Big Sister is in Kindergarten, mornings are even MORE crucial than ever before. I've learned to lay out ALL our clothes and pack lunches the night before, and keep breakfast simple.
When I was in elementary school, we ate a ton of cereal. My brothers and I were picky eaters and often running late in the morning so it was the easiest (and yummiest) choice.
Since the girls are not big breakfast eaters (or eaters period) we usually stick to the same breakfast routine. Naturally, when General Mills asked me to sample and review their new Cocoa Puffs Brownie Crunch cereal along with a fun prize pack I jumped at the chance!
Cocoa Puffs was one of our go-to cereals when I was a kid so I was excited to taste the new cereal for myself....and share a taste or two with the girls...and I guess Breadwinner.
Though we didn't taste much difference between the original Cocoa Puffs and the new Brownie Crunch, the Whole Grain box certainly didn't last long in our house!
Both girls love the Breakfast on the Go cups, too.
We eat our breakfast at the table, but the idea of a 'keep cold' cup for milk that attaches to the bottom of the cereal cup and snaps tight with a lid containing a foldable spoon...GENIUS! 
Is the thought of brownie cereal making you hungry? Or taking you back to your childhood?
Wishing you had your very own cereal to go cups?
General Mills wants to give one of YOU a Brownie Crunch prize pack, too!
Simply leave a comment letting me know your morning breakfast routine and why you want to win.
One lucky winner will be drawn, Wednesday, August 31st at 7:00am Pacific time 
(while I'm eating breakfast *wink*).

Free is always fun! I would like to win not for myself but for my niece Aubrey! She just turned one in July and she loves cereal. She is so precious, she even loves to share her food with her puppy Adora. Plus I am the Aunt who loves to spoil my nieces and nephew with chocolate. I am pretty sure this cereal is going to taste amazing. Also the to go cups are a great idea. I have purchased them before and they truly are a great thing to have around with kids!

I LOVE cocoa puffs!!!
Those are one of the cereals I haven't let my children eat yet as they'll stop eating the non-chocolate cereal for it ;)

I'm your fan on facebook, and where ever else I can possibly be :)

Our normal breakfast routine is cereal & milk right after we get up, but my kids haven't ever tried Cocoa Puffs, let alone Brownie Crunch! We'd love to win for the cereal, and for those really cut containers and frisbee!

The morning routine can get crazy with 3 kiddos under the age of 4. It usually consists of 3 noisy boys eating cereal at the table! I would love to win this prize pack! Sounds like a great little gadget!
