What Is It
The new Tropical Blends Honey Bunches of Oats is a new take on the well-loved idea of Honey Bunches of Oats. Still including their delicious bunches of oatas, the Tropical Blends variety includes two delicious and complementary flavors – crispy mango and crunchy coconut. With crispy flakes, crunchy granola clusters, and the touch of honey that you’ve come to love from Honey Bunches of Oats cereals, Post has, once again, given you a new flavor variety to enjoy with your Honey Bunches of Oats cereal.
Each serving isn’t too bad for you, either! Each serving has 10 grams of whole grain, 120 calories, 9 essential vitamins and minerals, 4 wholesome grains, 0 grams of trans fat, and 0 mg of Cholesterol. It’s even WIC-eligible, and WIC only allows foods that are pretty healthy for you.
The Honey Bunches of Oats Tropical Blends definitely tastes different. Most morning cereals have a sugary or bland taste to them. The mango mixed with the coconut gives the Tropical Blends a taste that I can’t even compare to most other cereals. Some of the bites have a lot of coconut taste while other bites have a strong honey taste while other bites have a strong mango taste while others have more than one of the flavors. Those three flavors blend together surprisingly well, though, and it leads to a delicious bite.
I do find that the Honey Bunches of Oats Tropical Blends tend to taste best when milk has had time to set in. It’s okay when they’re all still crunchy, but I prefer them a bit milk-softened. This isn’t one of those cereals that I’d just pour into a bowl and eat as a snack, but my partner was quite happy doing just that. So I suppose it depends on exactly how crunchy you prefer your cereal.
Either way, the Honey Bunches of Oats Tropical Blends are unique and taste good. They are a bit strong compared to most breakfast cereals, but it’s still a yummy treat.

The Tropical Blends Honey Bunches of Oats cereal is really unique. It has a tropical-like blend of coconut and mango that I’ve never tasted in a cereal before, and it tastes pretty delicious.
I think the coconut/mango flavoring may not appeal to all people. It’s a very strong taste in the morning, but if it’s something you like, it’s a good taste.
You can purchase the Honey Bunches of Oats Tropical Blends at most grocery stores in the cereal aisle. It’s always fun to try out a new flavor!
