Kellogg’s Special K Review and Competition

I have a particular fondness for this cereal and not just because I used to be called Special K by some of my old work colleagues (as my name is Karen).  It is down to the taste, all the family were happy to tuck into a bowl the other day.  


Youngest is even content eating a handful dry out of the packet (he is doing this again now as I have moved the box next to me to write up my review!).  At the rate he is eating them we will have none left for breakfast… sob!

This is the first time Kellogg’s have changed the Special K recipe since 1983, but making it more wholesome was one change all us fans are happy for them to make!  If this cereal is good enough for HRH the Queen, it’s certainly good enough for me and mine.  I need a decent breakfast to start the day, ready to cope with running around after my two boys, especially if I have been missing sleep.

With less than 2% fat it is a fabulous option to keep trim too.  I would rather eat healthier than kill myself at the gym right now.  I do not have it in me to don a Lycra all in one and prance about energetically, tucking into my Special K will see a leaner me instead!

If you would to win a case of the NEW Special K then just complete the rafflecopter below by the 12th of May.
