Kix Cereal Prize Pack Giveaway

Studying a little background history of Kix Cereal, I found they have served breakfast to the table for more than 70 years.  I also learned that Kix was one of the first non flake cereals and child stars Shirley Temple & Kirsten Dunst starred in Kix Advertising. In 1978 Kix tag line was written "kid-tested, mother-approved®"

Today, Kix Cereal is proud to say they are still kid-tested, mother-approved®. A good source of calcium, fiber, and Vitamins C and D, providing your family a wholesome breakfast with nutrients they need to grow. Kix is slightly sweetened crunchy whole grain corn balls and an excellent source of iron and low in sugar. Kix has no artificial color, flavors or preservatives.

Try the Kix Honey Cereal & Original flavor. Visit Kix online for background history, nutritional content, and special offers. Kix hope you´ll join in on the conversation and tell why Kix cereal is "approved" in your household!
