My Leap Day Delightful Discoveries with Quaker

I’m participating in the Delightful Discoveries campaign, sponsored by Quaker Oatmeal. Along with discovering their new cereal – Honey Nut Crunch Quaker Oatmeal Squares, we were encouraged to make our own delightful discovery for Leap Day.

As Leap Day approached this week, I thought about what my Delightful Discovery would be. My week started out on a low note with me getting sick. While I felt better, I wasn’t 100% by the time Leap Day on Wednesday rolled around. Because I knew we’d be staying close to home that day, I turned my attentions to something at home.

I started Leap Day out with a bowl of some new cereal. Quaker Oatmeal Squares is my favorite cereal and the new Honey Nut Crunch did not disappoint. I’m not sure what I love more: the fact that it fills me up and keeps me satisfied for most of the morning, that it’s so quick and easy to serve, or that it simply tastes so good. Quaker Oatmeal Squares is a winner!

Our Wednesday morning continued as usual until noon. It began snowing and when I realized it was going to be a big storm, I asked the neighbor to watch the kids so I could run out to get a few groceries. I cannot run out of milk with my little ones! Thankfully I got my shopping done in plenty of time before the storm.

The rest of the day was spent with the kids playing in the snow, reading stories with the little ones, and baking fun cookies. We had a wonderful day. I realized that my Leap Day Delightful Discovery was just how much fun it can be to stop and enjoy the little things. Like the saying “stop and smell the roses,” I’m realizing more and more how it’s those little things that can bring the most joy of all.

I’d also like to announce the winner of our Quaker Oatmeal Delightful Discoveries Giveaway – Congratulations to confirmed winner Daiva B!

The Delightful Discovery giveaway may have ended, but you can still get a free sample of the yummy new Quaker Oatmeal Squares cereal from their Facebook page! Head over and send away for your box today!

What did you do on Leap Day? What was your Delightful Discovery?

  1. These sound delicious and I’ve seen them in the cereal isle before but haven’t tried them yet. I might just pick a box up next time I’m grocery shopping!

  2. I haven’t tried these but your post makes me want to! I didn’t do anything special on Leap Day. It was just another day here.

  3. Is it bad that we did not celebrate Leap day? LOL! I did make a special dinner for my family!

  4. I love Oatmeal Squares! I’ll admit, though, that we didn’t do anything special on Leap Day! Looks like you all had a lot of fun!

  5. I used to love Quaker Oatmeal Squares. I can’t eat them anymore because I am allergic to Gluten but I think they are a great way to start your day.

    This cereal looks great. I have yet to try it but now I want to. As for Leap Day, nothing special at all.

  7. I had a friend that was a friend of my son that was born on this day. She is rare I guess. Nothing special done either.

  8. Robin Quick says:

    These sound yummy! Ive been on a Touch Of Fruit Mini Wheat kick for a while but its time for a change. Looks like ive found the replacement! Thanks for sharing!

  9. marthalynn rodriguez says:

    These look yummy! I’ve always been a fan of Quaker cereal. Isn’t this one that’s been around for a while? I feel like this is one I used to eat all the time but honestly had forgotten about.

  10. I have tried these & I love them. The rest of my family, not so much.

  11. Oh fun – I’m aways looking for new cereal for the kids and this looks sweet enough without being a total “candy” cereal.

    We didn’t do anything special on Leap Day but I’m glad you had fun!

  12. lisa brown says:

    I love that cereal. Makes a great snack, too, just grab a hand full, and you are satisfied.

  13. Evelyn Goettner says:

  17. Katharina says:

    This is the kind of cereal my daughter put into our grocery cart
    yesterday and I hadn’t even read your review yet! :-) And now
    that I’ve read it, I’m sure she’ll enjoy it (and I’ll be having some of
    it myself… sounds yummy!)

  21. Leap day was business as usual.

    I haven’t tried the new flavor yet. Will look for it at the grocery store next time.

  22. Jennifer Hedden says:

    I have never tried these Quaker Oatmeal Squares, but I have never tried a Honey Nut flavored cereal I didn’t like. I will definitely have to try these. It sounds like you ended up having a great day! Thank you for sharing!

  34. I love Quaker oatmeal squares. Ive requested the sample and received it int he mail but havent eaten it yet!! Oh, and we didnt do anything for leap year.

  35. Nicole G. says:

    I love Quaker Oat Squares although I have not yet seen the Honey Nut Crunch variety. They look good, too. On Leap Day I worked as usual, but I did send a birthday greeting to my friend born on that day.

  36. Cassondra says:

    I haven’t tried this kind yet but it sounds delicious! I love Oatmeal Squares, so delicious and good for you :)

  37. Seyma Shabbir says:

    I tried these when they sent me a sample. They were good but not fantastic. My hubby like Smart Start, kids like apple jacks-trix-Lucky Charm-Corned Pop-Fruit Loops and I like what the kids like! :)
