Cheerios: New 2-box Warehouse Club Packaging + Cheerios Giveaway (2 winners)

Update: And the winners are ..Chavonne H. and Amy.  I have sent the winners an e-mail, and they have 48 hours to respond with contact information or I’ll have to choose another winner.  Thanks to everyone who entered!

My favorite cereal in the morning is Cheerios, and I tend to purchase it from Costco when I don’t have a coupon for it. I like how I get 2 big packages of cereal for a good price. However, sometimes it was hard to keep my cereal from getting crushed since it included 2 bags within 1 box.

However, General Mills has just updated the Cheerios packaging in the warehouse stores – Costco, Sam’s Club, or BJ’s.  Now, each Cheerios pack contains two individual boxes, making them easier to store and easier to pour.

I was a little worried that this creates more waste with more cardboard (although it can be recycled).  However, General Mills has also reduced the amount of air in each individual bag, so each enhanced container fits 10% more cereal than before and uses less packaging.  This reduces packaging material by over 200,000 lbs, saving 1,000 trees and takes 130 Cheerios trucks of the road, which decreases CO2 emissions.

You can find out more about the new packaging by checking out this Cheerios video.

    My son, Mason, will turn one in a few weeks. He goes through a box of Cheerios a week on his own! Then add in my husband, 3 year old son, and myself, and you have a mass quantity of Cheerios consumed weekly! We love Cheerios and would love to receive some free boxes. We all benefit from the whole grains in the cereal, calcium in the added milk, and the portability of Cheerios as a wholesome snack!

  2. Amy says:

    Winning these Cheerios would benefit my family because we just LOVE Cheerios! We eat them for breakfast, make Cheerio treat bars and even put them in cookies we love them so much!
