#CerealAnytime how true is that hashtag?!
If there is one thing that we love to eat at all times of the day in this house, it is cereal. For breakfast, on yogurt, dry, as a bed time snack. We just can’t seem to get enough. There are simply no limits to when this treat may pop up. Today I want to introduce a new product from Post Cereal, Kung Fu Panda Po Power Crunch, and share a fun creative way to make your cereal into something out of the ordinary, a cookie.
These tasty cereal cookies are crunch & sweet with nuts, coconut and fruit in them too. They are a great cereal anytime snack and put a fun and unique spin on a family favorite.
Recently while shopping at Wal-Mart I stocked up on our cereal supply. I grabbed something new, Kung Fu Panda Po Power Crunch, and family favorite Berry Colossal Crunch. I knew the girls would be thrilled when I arrived home and I couldn’t have been more correct. Emily was begging me to let her dig into the Berry Colossal Crunch before I had even made it in the house. “I’m gonna eat that whole bag all by myself mama!”
I love bringing home treats for my family that give them great big smiling faces. Sometimes achieving that can be tricky since everyone seems to love something different. But Post Cereals make things so easy. With their large variety of flavors, you are sure to find something for every member of your family. Our mornings are always happier when we can gather around the table together, everyone with their favorite box of cereal.
Right now you can also save .50 on any Post product at Wal-Mart with Ibotta.
Kung Fu Panda Po Power Crunch is a new product available at Wal-Mart. The chocolate puffs with the fun marshmallow shapes made it an instant favorite of the girls… and me. There is just something about this cereal that I can’t stay away from. “Sorry kids, mom ate all of your cereal.” They’ll forgive me, right?!
Since we ended up loving the cereal so much I thought why not turn it into a fun treat for the girls. I had an idea that I thought just might work so I got busy in the kitchen with lots of “help” from Emily.
So how did they turn out?

I expected them to be good, but they turned out even better than I had hoped they would. The chocolatey crunch with the coconut flavor, sweet chewy berries and crispy almonds equal out to be a treat that the parents and the kids will both love… just like the Kung Fu Panda Cereal.
I have a feeling that these treats would be equally tasty if I had made them with the Colossal Berry Crunch too. We’ll have to put that on our short to-do list this week. After all, our first batch of Po Power Crunch Cereal Cookies didn’t last long.
When is your favorite time to sit down with a bowl of cereal?
