Product Review: General Mills "Mr. Men/Little Miss" Cereal

I don't know if you've been grocery shopping at Target lately and noticed some specially marked boxes of General Mills Cereals.  From October 4-17, Target has been carrying special boxes of cereal marked with the Mr. Men./Little Miss characters, that you might remember from your childhood.  The boxes each include an iron-on transfer that you can use to decorate a t-shirt with these cute characters.

The specially marked cereals are the following: Honey Nut Cheerios (featuring Mr. Strong), Cocoa Puffs (featuring Mr. Messy), Cinnamon Toast Crunch (featuring Little Miss Sunshine), Lucky Charms (featuring Mr. Happy), and Cookie Crisp (featuring Little Miss Chatterbox).  General Mills was kind enough to send me a box of each of the cereals to review, as well as a t-shirt to use for the transfers.

First of all, this was a very popular review in my house!  Michael came home from work, and seeing some of his favorite "treat" cereals from his childhood, professed his willingness to help with the review!  He enjoyed trying Cookie Crisp, but decided that he still liked an old favorite, Cocoa Puffs, the best.  GiGi immediately decided on the box of Lucky Charms, fascinated by the pictures of colorful marshmallows.  Even LuLu got in on the act, very much enjoying her first taste of a childhood favorite of mine, Cinnamon Toast Crunch.

GiGi also was very excited by her new t-shirt.  I chose Little Miss Sunshine to iron on, because I thought it was the cutest.  It was quick and easy to iron on the picture.  As you can see, the t-shirt is too big for her, but it will make a cute nightshirt.  (Tip: When ironing on the transfer, make sure you do it for the full 2-3 minutes.  Mine wasn't quite dark enough.)

Overall, we all enjoyed these specially marked boxes of cereal.  As the cereals are mostly the more sugary ones, they are not varieties that I would purchase on a regular basis, but I don't mind us having them once in a while for a treat.  If you're interested in the Mr. Men./Little Miss boxes of cereal, you can get them at Target until October 17.
