I received a box of Honey Bunches of Oats: Tropical Blends for review! I really like most of the Honey Bunches of Oats cereals. I also really like this one too! It's flavorful without being too bland or too sweet. As I don't like overly sweet cereals.
Honey Bunches of Oats is introducing a new way to smile. Crispy mango flavored flakes combine with real coconut flavored granola clusters in NEW Honey Bunches of Oats Tropical Blends.

What are whole grains?
Whole grains and whole grain foods contain all of the essential parts and naturally occurring nutrients of the entire grain seed, and are an important part of a balanced diet. A whole grain kernel is made up of three parts: the bran, endosperm and germ. The bran is the outer layer and has most of the fiber. The endosperm is the middle part of the kernel, and is mostly starch. The germ is the inner core, and contains protein, vitamins, minerals and unsaturated fat.
A refined grain (like classic white bread) has only one of the three parts, the endosperm. Refined flour begins from whole grains, but when the grains are refined to remove the bran and germ, most of the nutrition is also removed.
Nutritionists recommend eating 3 or more servings of whole grain foods per day (about 16 grams whole grains per serving or at least 48 grams per day). Many Post products are a great source of whole grain (see each product’s nutritional information for more details).
