Honey Nut Cheerios made it’s Buzz-worthy debut in 1979 and today there are now 11 different varieties of Cheerios! Honey Nut Cheerios was the 2nd variety to be created following the original Cheerios.
Honey Nut Cheerios are always in our pantry. My 3 year old eats them for breakfast and also snacks on them throughout the day. I could eat Honey Nut Cheerios every day. I often have a bowl for breakfast and my hubby and I have been known to eat a bowl of Honey Nut Cheerios for lunch or dinner quite often. The way I look at it is if we need a meal quickly we might as well eat Honey Nut Cheerios rather than eating at a fast food restaurant. When do you like to eat Honey Nut Cheerios?
I made several yummy treats for our guests to snack on that were all made with……you guessed it, Honey Nut Cheerios! You can see the trail mix, Beehive Banana Muffins, and Stacks of snacks bars in the photo above. I also made Frozen bananas by following the recipe below that Honey Nut Cheerios provided me with:
- Cover cookie sheet with waxed paper. Peel 4 bananas; cut bananas crosswise in half. Insert wooden stick into cut end of each banana.
- Roll bananas in yogurt, then in cereal to coat. Place on cookie sheet. Freeze until firm, about 1 hour.
- Wrap each banana in plastic wrap or foil. Store in freezer.
I have to say this is the first party I ever hosted wearing a bathrobe! We had a lot of fun and I would definitely throw another breakfast themed party again! What fun theme parties have you ever hosted or attended?

My little bumble bee!
My toddler wouldn’t even put down his bowl of Honey Nut Cheerios while he was dancing outside with the other kids! He had a blast learning the dance moves the girls were teaching him and I have to say he did pretty well considering he never spilled his Honey Nut Cheerios!
I will leave you with one more fun fact. Did you know that the Honey Nut Cheerios’ BuzzBee just got his name in 2000? There was a nationwide kids contest to help choose his name!
Honey Nut Cheerios provided me with cereal and party supplies. All opinions are mine alone and based off of my experience with Honey Nut Cheerios.
