General Mills came out with a brand new snack mix not too long ago in reference to their Honey Nut Cheerio's cereal. This mix contains a mixture of honey nut flavored snack pieces. There are Cheerio's, Golden Grahams cereal pieces, pretzel sticks to add some salty to that sweet, Corn Chex cereal pieces and sweet caramel swirl cookie pieces. The mix is fantastic. Unfortunately, it does not come in a resealable bag or container. It is hard to keep them from going stale very quickly. So, my best bet is to find the smallest bag for a one time snack or get a big back and have at it!
The other reviews pretty much cover Honey Nut Cheerios Snack Mix, it just needs to be stated that SUGAR is the first ingredient.The mix is delicious, I can't get enough of it, but the serving size limits you to only 2/3 cup. No one is going to eat JUST 2/3 cup after trying one bite of this stuff. If you are on a diet or somesuch, try dividing it into serving-size bags to take to the office or pouring a serving into a bowl so you aren't tempted to carry the whole bag around. I know I would eat the entire bag in an instant if I didn't pour some into a bowl.Also, depending on where you live, it may be a little pricey when you consider the size (only 7 oz), but this is definitely a great way to start eating a healthy snack that ISNT trail mix.
My family loves Cheerios.. My husband used to eat Peanut Butter on Toast every single morning...Until one day I got him to eat a bowl of Cheerios...Now he eats Cheerios every morning... It is even great to snack on dry.....Healthy too.

It's a nice healthy snack to have all thru the day. Has a nice taste and helps with the cravings thru the day. I don't have to eat a bowl of cereal to lower my cholesterol. I can take the bag with me wherever I go. Everyone in our family enjoys eating Honey Nut Cheerios.
Oh my goodness, talk about a delicious snack! Wooo Hoot, I'm loving it. *Chex Mix Honey Nut Sweet & Salty *is yummy and also low in calories. A serving equals 130 calories and there are 8 servings per bag. I am a very proud member of General Mills Pssst! and I was fortunate enough to preview this new product. When it comes to snacking, I am not so much of a salty snacker. Ordinarily my cupboards are full of sweets, predominantly chocolate. The added honey to this mix really does the trick for me and it is my escape from the same ole' same ole'. I'm going to have to hide this bag as I am having a tasting party soon and have to save for the guests but I will definitely be buying another bag soon. At the bottom of the bag they say it may contain nut ingredients for those who may be concerned or allergic. I think it is also awesome that this product is coming out in the Fall, for some reason Honey and Autumn just naturally go together. Ladies, this is a great snacking idea for the guy's football get togethers. Yes, I highly recommend!

I really like the Honey Nut Cheerios snack mix! Good anytime during the day. Would have given is a 5 star if it didnt have the pretzels. I really don't want them when eating this snack for breakfast. But, other than that, very good!

My family loves to have snacks in the house. It's hard trying to be health conscious when the others in the house don't want to sacrifice the same things I'm trying to cut out of my diet. With those temtations in the pantry, I try to add healthier options for me, in case I give in to snacking. I happened by a new snack by General Mills, Honey Nut Cheerios Snack Mix. With a statement like, "May Help Reduce the Risk of Heart Disease" and 65% Less Fat than regular potatoe chips, only 130 calories per 2/3rds cup serving, 1.5 grams of polyunsaturated and 1 gram of monunsaturated fats (the good fats), I'd figure I'd give it a try! Seeing it sit there with the Chex Mixes, I expected a salty, trail mix like snack. To my pleasant surprise, it's sweet! With a perfect combination of Honey Nut Cheerios, Cheerios, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Rice & Wheat Chex, no salt pretzels and small swirl cookies, this sweet treat will leave you filled, satisfied and happy! Look for this snack in the chip isle near the Chex Mixes in your local grocer!
**Cereal** snack mixes have come a long way, baby. **Chex**, for example, started it all by dumping *Worcestershire* sauce in their Party Mix! Ewww. Not my *kind *of party. I even remember my mom had a yellowing **Kellogg's** cookbook that had a Chicken Pot Pie on the cover. Mmmm... cereal for dinner-guests. But thank goodness for the new lines of laminate-bagged and cupped **Cereal Snack Mixes**. Chex made up for that old Worcestershire mix with their line of Chex Mixes. The Chocolate Turtle Mix is so sweet you won't need sugar in your coffee for a week. But the best I've found so far features **General Mills'** **Cheerios brand**. It's a newer one called **Honey Nut Cheerios Snack Mix**. It's the perfect mix of sweet 'n' salty. But it wisely leans toward the sweet in a perfect blend of **Honey Nut Cheerios**, tiny pretzel sticks, **Golden Grahams**, **Corn Chex**, and what I believe to be **MultiGrain Cheerios**. But the rock-star ingredient is a small, crunchy honey bun-type thing they call a **Caramel swirl cookie**. It's worthy of it's own breakfast cereal or animated commercial on Saturday morning TV, at least. And they didn't junk it up with any nuts or candy-pieces. Just a great, crunchy cereal snack experience. So if you're in the mood for an easy snack on the sweeter side of "sweet 'n' salty" you'll love **Honey Nut Cheerios Snack Mix**.
