Big G Curvy Straws Review from #MyBlogSpark {Ends 5/6}

As a mom, it’s important to me that my kids get their daily dose of Calcium and Vitamin D. It drives me crazy when I give them a bowl of cereal, they eat every bite of cereal, and then leave the milk in the bowl. It’s wasteful and it keeps them from getting closer to reaching their daily needed amount of Calcium and Vitamin D.

Right now, General Mills is working to prevent that from happening by including Curvy Straws in specially marked boxes of their Big G cereals. My kids love using the curvy straws to build a HUGE straw and then proceed to drink every drop of their milk that’s left in their bowl. Add to that the fact that Big G cereals are made with more whole grain than any other ingredient, and my kids have a great start to their busy day.

Participating Big G cereals include Lucky Charms®, Reese’s Puffs®, Trix®, Cinnamon Toast Crunch®, Honey Nut Cheerios®, and Cocoa Puffs®. There are six different colorful straws that feature our favorite Big G cereal characters.

The curvy straws are great for finishing off that last little bit of milk, or for encouraging kids to drink more milk in a cup. {Or a bowl – my kids always ask me to just pour more milk into their bowl and they slurp it up with their Curvy Straws.}

For this review, MyBlogSpark sent me a fantastic General Mills Big G Curvy Straws prize pack. It included the following items:

  • 1 box of a participating Big G cereal. {We got Cocoa Puffs… my favorite!!}
  • 1 Curvy Straw
  • 1 “Spilt Milk” bowl
  • 2 Glow Cups
  • 2 Tangle Toys
This was – hands down – one of the most fun prize packs we’ve received. The kids have gotten such a kick out of every single item in the box. They all love Cocoa Puffs… almost as much as I do… and they were so excited that they got the chance to have them for breakfast. The curvy straws were a hit with my older boys. They love connecting them together and making the straws into one huge straw. Parker loves the “Spilt Milk” bowl. He asks for it at every meal – no matter what’s on the table. Even I have to admit, it’s a very cool looking bowl, and even I like using it for my morning cereal. The glow cups are awesome. Everyone loves those. You can see in the picture I posted how the bottoms of the cups light up. They blink, flash, or stay solid, and they’re just plain fun to drink out of. And the tangle toys are a hit with all my kids, too. I’ve even caught my 14 year old playing with them. They’re quite fun!
This was such a great prize pack, and my kids have really enjoyed it. I’m grateful to General Mills for making breakfast even more fun and encouraging my kids to finish their milk with their curvy straws.
