I remember as a kid in the 80’s seeing this commercial for the first time and singing the catchy tune over and over and over.
Honeycomb’s big…yeah yeah yeah!It’s not small…no no no!Honeycomb’s got…a big big bite!
It didn’t take long after that for my mom to buy me a box of Honeycomb cereal and moments after that, I was hooked.
Now here I am, 36 years old and a mother of 5 children who love Honeycomb cereal and can’t get enough of that big big crunch!
It’s a Celebration
This year, Post Honeycomb cereal is turning 50 years old! Since 1965, Honeycomb’s one-of-a-kind playful shape and sweet honey taste have made the cereal a breakfast classic that is not only great in the bowl, but also a flavorful addition to treats.
Honeycombs aren’t just delicious when served in a bowl with milk, they also can be a great snack or treat like this delicious Honeycomb Monkey Munch.
Honeycomb Monkey Munch is super easy to make and only requires 4 ingredients and it is a delcious treat. It’s so good that the kids won’t want to stop eating it and that’s okay because Honeycomb cereal has:
- 8g of whole grain per serving*
- Excellent source of vitamin D
- Low in fat and cholesterol-free
- 10 essential vitamins and minerals
If you ask me, that’s a great reason to snack on Honeycomb cereal all the time!

You can whip up your own batch of Honeycomb Monkey Munch using the recipe below.
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 4 squares semi-sweet chocolate

- 2 Tbsp. powdered sugar
- Microwave peanut butter and chocolate in large microwaveable bowl on HIGH 1-1/2 min. Stir until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is well blended.
- Pour over cereal in large bowl; toss to evenly coat. Place 2 large sheets of aluminum foil on counter, with long sides of foil slightly overlapping. Spread cereal mixture onto foil. Let stand 2 hours or until chocolate coating is set.
