Honey Bunches of Oats

Recently, some friends and I got together to dance to the new Honey Bunches of Oats theme song, entitled “Smile While You Shake it!” and to sample some delicious Honey Bunches of Oats cereal. It was so much fun!

Honey Bunches of Oats The cereal was DEELISH! We are already big Honey Bunches of Oats fans in my home, but I have never tried to Greek cereal before. Now I have a new favorite. We fueled up on the yummy cereal so we could have energy to “Smile While You Shake it!”

By the way, the nice folks at Honey Bunches of Oats also sent along some super fun photo both props including a glitter microphone and feather boa… and prizes for a drawing, including a Jawbone Jambox Wireless Bluetooth Speaker and an iTunes card. Plus everyone received earbuds as a party gift!

Smile While You Shake it

 Here’s the scoop. Honey Bunches of Oats has a brand new (addictive) theme song, titled “Smile While You Shake it” by the awesome band Domino Saints. I dare you to listen to the happy samba beats without smiling and breaking into a dance! The cute song also includes the shaking sound of the cereal box and the clank of breakfast utensils. It’s so fun!
