Disclosure: I was provided the featured product free of charge to facilitate my review, but all opinions are 100% mine.
In our home my kids eat a ton of cereal not only for breakfast but its great a snack option. It travels well and each of my kids like to pick out their own kind.
Recently they had the opportunity to test out some Malt-O-Meal cereal. Now you all know this mom like to save a buck where ever she can the bag size was ginormous. Plus how much cheaper the Malt-O-Meal Cereal was compared to other brands of cereal out there. At my store and depending where you are in the country it was almost 50% less, those are based on regular priced bags and boxes.
So what did my kids and I do once we got home?

After a vote, yes they voted in the cereal aisle. They decided on the Marshmallow Mateys and the Berry Colossal Crunch. I was not surprised since they knew from looking on the bag it was similar to what cereal choices they had at home.
Once we got back to the house, we did a fun little taste test. By looking at them they could tell which was which based on the size of the cereal pieces. The Malt-O-Meal cereal was slightly bigger. I poured each child a bowl of the one they wanted, one was the Malt-O-Meal the other the store brand. Even though they knew which was which all three said the Malt-O-Meal and store brand tasted the same, my daughter said she liked the Marshmallow Mateys better than the name brand.
– Insert happy saving money dance for me! –
What I never even thought about until having the Malt-O-Meal cereal on hand the kids can help themselves. With the traditional boxes they never closed the bag inside correctly so we always manage to have a few boxes that go stale. With the resealable bag on Malt-O-Meal cereal I never will have that issue.
You can find Malt-O-Meal cereals are sold at most retail grocery stores. Check your local area.
