2 Box Cheerios Giveaway ... by C.L. Beck

Cheerios. Ya gotta love 'em! Especially when you're sitting in church and wishing a bug would fly up someone's nose to create a little excitement. Then, you look at the bench in front of you and there's a little girl with Cheerios stuck on every fingertip for fun.

Awww, cute. And laughable.

Aside from the cute factor ... most of us grew up eating Cheerios and loving them. Except maybe for those macho men who insisted on chicken embryos for breakfast. (Ewwww!.) My favorite way to eat Cheerios is layered in a parfait glass with vanilla yogurt, fresh bananas, strawberries, and pecans. Oh, yum! But, aside from the yummy Cheerios crunch and taste, now there's another reason to eat Cheerios.

The new, 2 box Cheerios contains two individual boxes ... which makes them easier to store and easier to pour. No odd sizes to try to stack, just two nifty boxes held together by small strips of adhesive that are easily separated when you want to use the boxes. Not to mention something else. According to General Mills ... "by reducing the amount of air in each individual bag, these enhanced containers fit 10% more cereal than before and use less packaging While each box contains more cereal, packaging material has been reduced by over 200,000 lbs, saving 1,000 trees and taking 130 Cheerios trucks off the road, decreasing CO2 emissions." (For more info, see video clip at the end of this article.)

New and improved 2 box Cheerios are now available on the shelves of Costco, Sam’s Club and BJ’s nationwide.

Ooo, comfort food! When I was little, we eight Anderson kids hungered for sugar-sweetened cereal but rarely got it. No problemo... just pour in the Cheerios and ladle on the sugar! Now I can love Cheerios again because they are saving some trees by using smarter packaging... and trees are very nice things to have.
