Last week on the rare bitter chill of the Texas air, I invited some fellow bloggers over to “Smile While You Shake It” With Honey Bunches of Oats. Yes, bloggers dance… errrr… shake it… sometimes. I had it all set up. Cereal was prominently displayed, gifts were under the tree and food was set out for all to enjoy. All because I wanted a BIG way to tell everyone that weekly, from now until June 15, 2014, we can shake it on their website and be enter to WIN $500 Visa Gift card! Yep… 15 seconds could earn you a $500 Visa Gift Card. And you can enter weekly. And you should. This took us less than a minute a piece!

Back to the Honey Bunches of Oats party, though. I planned and planned and cooked – OK, I bought all of the food done (I’m busy!) – and got my props out to have some serious shakin’ going on. I was done and waiting and so I stopped to have a bowl of cereal. Seemed appropriate, right? But since I had 5 boxes the sent me and added four more so all of the bloggers could have a box, I had no idea what I wanted. There are so many varieties – from Greek to Honey Bunches of Oats with Cinnamon Clusters to Honey Bunches of Oats with Strawberries… how does one choose?

I finally threw a dart at the box and settled in to enjoy a nice, flavorful bowl of cereal. Oh it was good. When I was done, bloggers started to show and it was time to get some Smile While You Shake It on!

So, here is the basic deal:  Honey Bunches of Oats, recently launched a new brand anthem “Smile While You Shake It,” to celebrate what it means to start the day off with a smile. The fun and upbeat song, inspired by Samba beats, incorporates the cereal box and breakfast utensils as percussion instruments. It is catchy and fun for families to make it their own.

Entering  – and getting your kids in the action – is super simple. You simply go to the site, click the “Record Yourself’ button, the music starts to play as the video counts down and you “Smile While You Shake It” and laugh and have fun all the way through. My daughter and I did a test video and it was hysterical!
