A review of Honey Kix cereal, a new addition to the cereal aisle.


Review: Honey Kix Cereal

Published 20:38 pm

For so long, it seemed like very little ever changed in the cereal aisle. All of a sudden, there seems to be an explosion of new cereals. None surprised me more than the announcement of Honey Kix, the newest cereal from Kix. Original Kix have always been a staple for me, as it has for many parents who want their kids to eat a healthy breakfast cereal that tastes good. Berry Kix was the "bad" version of Kix, presumably with more sugar thus being more kid appealing.

After what seemed like years of two forms of Kix, and only one if you were in my house, all of a sudden there's a new contender in town. I have always loved Honey Nut Cheerios, so I decided to give Honey Kix a try. My first bowl, I was not overly impressed. The honey flavor was different from that of Honey Nut Cheerios and seemed off to me. However, I had a high school French teacher who told us to always try everything at least three times before deciding you don't like it, so I gave the cereal a second try.

For whatever reason, the second time I liked them and by the third bowl I was hooked. The flavor of honey is very subtle but adds enough to keep the cereal interesting. Again, the flavor is not the same as Honey Nut Cheerios because these lack any nut flavor, but it helps make them something different.

Nutritionally, Honey Kix are as "mom approved" as the original. They're relatively low in sugar and calories with some extra fiber and vitamins. In addition, one serving of Honey Kix with ½ a cup of milk provides thirty percent of the recommended daily intake of calcium to help kids build strong bones.

Honey Kix also has at least ten percent of the recommended daily value of vitamins A, C, D, B6, and B12 as well as calcium, iron, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, folic acid, and zinc. Honey Kix are free of any artificial flavors or preservatives, making them a natural choice for your breakfast cereal.

While I keep noting how great this cereal is for kids as it provides nutrition with great taste, these same things make it a wonderful cereal for adults. Many adults continue to fall short of the recommended daily intake of dietary fiber and calcium, and this cereal is a great way to start the day off on the right foot. The sweet flavor also makes it a wonderful afternoon or late night snack for when a sugar craving strikes.

Overall, I highly recommend Honey Kix. They provide adequate nutrition with a great flavor. Remember what my high school French teacher said though and give them another try if you don't like them at first. I didn't, but now I eat them almost every morning.
