I didn't care for these and I love Honey Nut Cheerios. These seemed to have an "off" taste to them...almost like an artificial vanilla flavor. However, my 20yo daughter loves them and chose them over Cheerios. She even eats them straight out of the bag as a snack. So I'll happily buy them for her since they're supposed have less sugar (though I haven't compared packages).
So my husband and daughter loved these. In fact, they liked them better than regular Cheerios. They were a little bit too honey sweet for me on initial taste but I have quite a savory palate. The consistency was good and crunchy - but not too much so at all. I liked that they had less sugar in than regular cereal.
They should be called Tast O’s. Better than Honey Nut Cheerios for sure. As others have stated, I love the fact that it has less sugar. If you haven’t tried this cereal, you should.
Three things I love about Golden O's. 1) They have less sugar than Honey Nut Cheerios. 2) They are lightly sweetened and have a great honey taste. 3) They have a little extra crunch. I love them in milk or as a snack when I get home from work. My kids love them too. I gave them a 4 because the Num Nums, Mighty Munch, Fifty Fifty Oatmeal, and Ono Granola are 5s to me.
I like these because I like Cheerios, but I want to lower my sugar. These taste good, but they are definitely crunchier than regular Cheerios. Be ready for that. Not a problem for me.
