Best Sweet Cereal

Special K Multi-Grain Oats and Honey is a sweet way to start your morning while still getting a dose of whole grains from whole-grain wheat, whole-grain oats, and wheat bran. We let it slide that there are only 11g of whole grain. Why? This cereal provides the ultimate sweet treat for only 8g of sugar per serving.

Cereal Stats: Whole Grain: 11g, Sugar: 8g, Fiber: 3g

Runner Up: Barbara's Bakery Shredded Spoonful Multigrain cereal is a close second with 15g whole grain, 4g fiber, 5g sugar, and a naturally sweet flavor from honey.
