Honey Bunches of Oats single-serve cups - Review and Summer Tips

"Honey Bunches of Oats single-serve cups. The delicious cups come in Honey Bunches of Oats Honey Roasted and Honey Bunches of Oats with Crispy Almonds. Each single-serve cup is conveniently packaged in a sealed container and they're perfect for on-the-go family activities! One cup provides 5g of protein and contains essential vitamins & minerals, to ensure you're getting a nutritious meal the whole family will love." 

While kids are so excited that it's now "SUMMER TIME", moms across the globe are like "When does school start again?" Most kids have a jam packed summer, filled with activities, sports, trips, I mean, the variety of activities just runs the gamut, even if they are in day care, most facilities take kids out to do fun things and try and alleviate the summer boredom.

But what about us? Moms, dads, aunts, uncles, grandparents, you know the shuttle/taxi service...err, I mean, drivers.  Sometimes, we just need to grab the essentials and head out and hope that we didn't forget anything as we dashed out the door!

Summertime can be a joyous occasion for the kiddos, but not so much for us adults.  I personally, am a stay at home momma, and I can assure you that while I love my children with all my heart and soul, I am counting down the days with RED bold X's on my calendar until they go back to school! 

But suffer no more, because with Honey Bunches of Oats single-serve cups it's a cinch! 

They offer a great variety of our Post favorites to tide us over during soccer, football, swimming and tennis, and, and...well...just fill in the blanks won't ya?

I know we've all tasted the yumminess Honey Bunches of Oats Post cereal, my favorite...with Almonds! Yum, Yum...DELISH!

Well how would you feel if you could take it with you on the go, snack on it during all those stops, maybe it's your week to shuttle around the soccer, football or swim team. Why not be energized and have something delicious fill that empty stomach?

Here is a simple little cup, that has two layers of genius! The bottom has a gel, freeze it up and it'll keep juice, milk or any other liquid cold for a couple of hours! See that top part? Well, just add in your Honey Bunches to-go cup in there and VIOLA! Instant breakfast, snack, lunch, whatever you want to call it (that is, whatever time you finally get around to eating it!)

This is a parents dream come true! 

Here are my tips for an easy getaway (as you dash out the door in the morning!):

  • Pack the essentials the night before (when the kiddos are in bed), gym bags, sunscreen, dry snacks (such as POST Nutrition on-the-go cups, you can purchase those here), tissues, and sanity (just kidding, you'll never be able to pack that)
  • The morning of, grab your bottled waters or sports drinks out of the fridge, pack them in a ice chest on wheels, even the backpack kind.
  • Fun toys for the toddlers or preschoolers, so they can enjoy sitting out on the field during big bro/sis games
  • Extra clothes/diapers/wipes
  • Anti-bacterial spray (just in case)

BzzAgent Review - Coppertone CLEARLYSheer Sunscreen

***Disclaimer: I received a complimentary BzzKit from BzzAgent.com that included samples of Coppertone CLEARLYSheer Sunscreen, these samples were facilitated for review purposes. All opinions expressed in this review are 100% my own and do no reflect the opinions of Coppertone CLEARLYSheer or BzzAgent.***

Coppertones CLEARLYSheer Sunscreen, is the newest line of sunscreens to hit the market! They are available in lotion and spray formulas. 

As part of the BzzAgent community, I was able to test these out. I was pleased with the over formulas, non-drying (meaning, my skin didn't dry out), they had enough moisture where my skin felt supple and soft to the touch without being greasy and the hint of tropical scents leaves you feeling like you went to the beach without even stepping foot on sand!

The formulas come in two formulas (besides lotion and spray) there is the Beach and Pool type and the Sunny Days type. 

I was able to try both and while the formulas are distinctly meant for two different purposes, they both felt, as the name suggests, Sheer!

I did not feel greasy or felt the need to come home and wash off the sunscreen, it blended into my skin immediately and I felt it worked perfectly. We had a few outings, the park, just general driving (especially in this sunny summer we're experiencing) and I didn't come home with a tan line, or a red face, and what's even greater is that you can use the Sunny Day formula on your face, and leave it on under your makeup! 

Coppertone CLEARLYSheer Sunscreen retails between $8.99 - $9.99 and can be found and most retailers that sell sun care products.
