Cereal Killers: Lucky Charms Vs. Golden Grahams

Cereal Killers; Lucky Charms; Golden Grahams

A few months ago we had our first round of Cereal Killers with Peanut Butter Toast Crunch Vs. Cookie Crisp. This time I decided to have a solo cereal party (so basically a weekday breakfast) to try a couple of American cereals – Lucky Charms and Golden Grahams. Did the redheaded leprechaun and his pot of charms sparkle or did the ribbed squares live up to their Golden name? Read all about the battle of the bowl-ge below.

10 Tips for Staying at Disney’s Aulani Resort, Hawaii

In May this year I was lucky enough to stay at the fabulous Aulani Disney Resort in Hawaii. Being a Disneyphile, I was super psyched to find out that there was a Disney resort on Oahu and I knew I had to stay there. I planned a split stay, spending half my time in Waikiki to be close to the tourist attractions, shopping, restaurants etc, and then the other half of my trip was spent soaking up the sun and enjoying Hawaii – Disney style.

Although Aulani is a Disney resort it’s not over the top Disney. The resort has tried to stay true to Hawaii’s Polynesian culture and style while still providing that family friendly Disney magic vibe that people love. Here are some of my tips for staying at Disney’s Aulani Resort. I would love it if you share some of your tips in the comments below!

Cereal Killers

A couple of weekends ago the cactus pop crew headed down to USA Foods to stock up on some American goodies. We put two cereals to the test. Peanut Butter Toast Crunch, a new twist on the traditional Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal, and the classic (?) Cookie Crisp. Warning: lots of sugar was consumed in the making of this post.

10 Things You Must Eat in Oahu, Hawaii

10 things you must eat on Oahu, Hawaii

 

If there is one thing that everyone should know about me it’s that I love food. I know what you’re thinking. Who doesn’t love food? But I seriously love food. The majority of my holidays revolve entirely around food. When planning my next trip away, the first thing I think of isn’t how beautiful the beach will be or what monument I will visit, it’s the food I will eat there.

Croissants in Paris, gelato in Florence, New York hot dogs, Chicago deep dish pizza, Key Lime Pie in Florida. I want it all.

So it was with slight trepidation that I planned my recent trip to the Hawaiian island of Oahu. Having been to Fiji and Vanuatu, I’ve had previous run-ins with Polynesian food and have been left wanting. Taro, more like Ta-No.

Friends and family had regaled me with their tales of eating in Hawaii. American fast food chains serving super-sized meals seemed to be the go-to Hawaiian dining experience.

Not one to shy away from a food challenge (I run away from all other challenges life throws my way), I made it my mission to seek out the best of what Hawaii had to offer.

Here is a list of my top eats on Oahu for a truly unique Hawaiian experience:
