Works For Me Wednesday-Special "K"


Okay..even though I have said "no resolutions for me in 2009"..I am trying to eat healthier and take better care of myself. Being at the ripe old age of "36"...I am starting not to bounce back as quickly, more headaches , cold weather is starting to affect me more...let's not go on with this. So..

I am the type of person who could eat m&m's before 7:30am and enjoy it. However, that would not go very well with my "eating healthy" pursuits. But, I found something that WORKS FOR ME...Special K! I know what you are thinking..Special K??? Not your normal, "blah" Special K?

CHOCOLATE DELIGHT Special "K"

It is so crunchy and has a perfect "chocolate" taste with little chocolate chunks! This is a keeper for me and I am not even a "cereal" eater!This sound like a "commercial for Kelloggs but when you find something "tasty" and "healthy"that even has "chocolate chunks" in it with low calorie..I am screaming it from the hilltops!

p.s. 12th GIVEAWAY Hint #2------> It's container is almost ALWAYS shaped like a...

Yummy - what a great way to start the day :-)

The Thompson's said...

Will definately be trying Special K.

Is it Valentine's Chocolate's? It fits the hints anyway.

Becky said...

I have been wanting to try that... I've heard mix reviews but I must try it. :-)

Liz said...

Not a big fan of the healthy cereals. That's a plus that it has chocolate in it!

Chris said...

I do eat a Special K cereal, it's the pecan one. I just love that one. Now, i'm going to buy this one, since I'm addicted to chocolate, I think this would work for me.Thanks.

Hugs,
Chris

Chocolate Special K!!! Does life get any better than that??? :)

The Blonde Duck said...

Just don't get the Special K Protien Plus. My mom gave me some and I was all excited about the fiber and protien content--tastes like cardboard. Seriously. It's so sad.

Ky said...

I like this cereal too :-) It's not exactly gourmet chocolate flavored LOL but hey... chocolate is chocolate, right?

I also use it as an emergency snack (LOL) when I'm dying to eat a real chocolate bar or ice cream. It's a much better alternative --- well, diet-wise anyway.

PS Hate to break it to you. But as a new contender in "Club 40", I have to tell you... it can and does get so much worse *maniacal laugh*.

Susan said...

It sounds yummy - I love the kind with red berries too!

Darlene said...

I have tried it and I really like it too. Just the other day I got the Special K with fruit and yogurt...it is good too!

I just realized you are giving us clues to something......

Sarah said...

I love me some M&M's first thing in the morning, especially if they are peanut.
I've seen the Special K--good to know it's yummy!

Naomi said...

I hope that cereal never makes it to our shores!!!:)

Have loved catching up with your posts, and finding out what THE Christmas gift turned out to be! Oh, you lucky, lucky girl!!! What a fantastic gift!

I always eat the yogurt and berry one...I will have to try the chocolate one....it does look really good!!

Oh why eat cereal with chocolate if you can just eat... chocolate! What? No Snickers bars before 7:30 a.m.? It's the BEST breakfast... tee hee!

You have an adorable blog here... will definitely be back. Visiting from SITS... see you around!

Christy said...

I'll eat anything with chocolate! I especially like the vanilla almond Special K though too. Have you tried that one yet?

And I say every once in awhile M&M's for breakfast aren't so bad:)

theArthurClan said...

I do not like cereal at all. But...putting chocolate in it? That would probably help a bit. :)

I know what you mean about the reaching your later 30's and not bouncing back as quickly. Urgh! I really don't like that part of growing older at all.

The Quintessential Magpie said...

I love anything chocolate, but I would probably be "forced" to eat the whole box. LOL! Thus defeating the purpose. ;-)

I'm thinking that your giveaway is some type of chocoate goodness! :-)

XO,

Sheila

Jboo said...

Love my Special K -- will have to look for the chocolatey one -- am current nibbling on some chocolate and it's only 8 AM! There's never a bad time for chocolate in my booK!

Montee said...

I have seen this advertised and wondered how it would taste. I don't know why I was wondering. I should know that chocolate makes just about everything delicious!

mysteryhistorymom said...

Are you eating this as your treat (dessert)? It looks yummy and I think I will add it to my shopping list- thanks! Lori

Smelling Coffee said...

I'm with you on eating chocolate at any time of the day! Thanks for the introduction to a healthy chocolate cereal! I'll definitely try it!

Brittany said...

OOOOOOh, I am going to have to try that chocolate special K. Thanks for sharing!

Jillene said...

I will HAVE to try this Special K!! And I can't WAIT for your giveaway!!

Rachel said...

Never have tried special K but this one I just might have to!! :)

Mari said...

I like the strawberry Special K but haven't tried the chocolate. I'll have to get some.

At Home In Georgia said...

Thank you....I wanted some toast smothered with butter, cinnamon and sugar but thanks to you I grabbed and activia yogart and some granola. I will have to try this special k...I have seen it but not very good at trying new healthy cereals much.

Lindsey said...

Oh this look so good!

Laurel MacD said...

I eat this for treat at night! Chocolate with cold milk - does it get better?

Carol @SheLives said...

I'm a Special K Vanilla Almond kinda girl myself. But, with a bit of persuasion, I could be converted.

Wendy said...

Okay, so we "36-year-olds" have to stick together! I think that the Special K cereal sounds divine and it would satisfy my chocolate craving. I simply have to get off the last of this baby weight before my metabolism slows down any more! Thanks for the tip!

Joanna said...

Love the Special K Choc Delight...As a matter of fact it's the only Special K that I do like!

*Keli* said...

I love Special K! The one with strawberries is my fave though...maybe I'll start the Special K diet. Tomorrow! LOL

Auds at Barking Mad said...

I read someone else shout it's virtues from the bloggy tree tops the other day...now seeing you write about it, well I'll just have to try it out! Mu hubby loves plain old ordinary Special K and eats it every other day.

Busy Bee Suz said...

Sounds delish!!! I may give it a try. Sounds like a nice sweet tooth craving filler for me too.

The hints are confusing me. Another blonde moment. :)

coco said...

luckily chocolate is not my thing however I would love a piece of pound cake every morning for breakfast!:) Stop by today, I have something for you!

Betsy said...

Kind of like a little M&Ms before breakfast. Sounds yummy.

Blue Castle said...

I have to try this. I usually have a little ice cream before bed, but it kind of makes me feel yucky in the morning. Wonder why? :)

Sit A Spell said...

Enjoy! I noticed the star wars lego below...my 6 yr old wanted some, but I don't think he is quite ready...but sure looks fun!

It Feels Like Chaos said...

Wow, I haven't tried this! Is it really healthy? I love cereal. My whole family does. There are literally 14 boxes of it in our pantry right now!! I eat it for breakfast and then as a late night snack around 10:30 PM, much better for my weight than the dessert I used to eat!

LuLu said...

Looks yummy to me! I am a cereal eater! favorite thing to eat when hubby is out of town. Fix a little something for the kids and I curl up with a bowl of cereal. Happy Happy,
LuLu

Girly Stuff said...

I love the strawberry Special K. I have found that the older I get, I like chocolate less. Shocking, I know!

nikkicrumpet said...

I saw this on TV and thought...anything chocolate and healthy...it's got to be a very good thing!

the voice of melody said...

I'll have to give this one a try - I love cereal and chocolate. Sounds like a winning combination to me! :)

Suzi said...

Mmm...I love chocolate! I too can eat chocolate in the wee hours of the day and enjoy it. I will have to try this new Special K.

Em @ Bunch of Scrap said...

I just tried Quaker Oatmeal Squares to be "healthier" - not bad!

Kim@ForeverWherever said...

I'm right there with you on the M&Ms! How funny! I'm gonna have to try this. I had Cherrios and blackberries this morning and I had to add sugar!!! I need something sweeter for sure! :)
Thanks!

Sandra said...

Ok you got me curious, I really don't like cereal but now I'll have to try this one :)
