Curvy Straws and General Mills review and giveaway

Closed: the winner is latanya

Did you know that simply drinking the leftover milk from cereal bowls may help kids work towards fulfilling their body’s daily dairy, calcium, and Vitamin D needs? And what better way to slurp down to the bottom of the bowl than with the new Curvy Straws, available in-pack of specially marked boxes of Big G cereal! With these collectable, connectable Curvy Straws, children of all ages can enjoy mixing and matching to build bigger, colorful straws all while helping them work towards stronger bones and muscles through increased calcium intake!

My kids love General Mills cereal.  Right Now their favorite cereal is Lucky Charms®.  They love to pick out the marshmallows and eat them first.  I don't mind buying them Lucky Charms® cereal because I know it is good for them.  When I look on the box and see the white check, I know I will see "whole grain" as part of the first ingredient on the ingredient list, indication that whole grain is the first and most prevalent ingredient.  

Did you know:

  • You can collect all six different colorful straws featuring beloved Big G cereal characters
  • Participating Big G cereals include Cinnamon Toast Crunch® (17 oz.), Lucky Charms®(16 oz.), Reese’s® Puffs (18 oz.), Honey Nut Cheerios® (17 oz.), Trix®(14.8 oz)  and Cocoa Puffs® (16.5 oz)
  • Made with more whole grain than any other ingredient, Big G cereal, combined with a ½ cup of milk, can help provide a great start to your family’s day 

 Whether you use one or connect them all, the fun with Big G Curvy Straws doesn’t have to stop when you reach the end of the bowl. Simply grab another serving of ice cold milk, and slurp away!
