As a kid, I enjoyed eating Post’s Honey Bunches of Oats Cereal (my favorite being the one with Almonds).  As an adult, I still enjoy eating Honey Bunches of Oats and it was recently that I had the opportunity to throw my very own “Smile While You Shake It” Dance Party!!!  Oh my gosh people – it was so much fun!  Before I get into the party, let me tell you a little more about the new “Smile While You Shake It” Sweepstakes hosted by Honey Bunches of Oats.

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.  Every week until June 2014, Honey Bunches of Oats will be giving away a $500 gift card from the overall pool of video entrants!  How sweet is that?

Making your video is super easy!  You will want to make sure you have the sound turned all the way up so you can hear the music.  Then get dressed up with your props, press the record button on your laptop or phone, wait for the countdown, and “Smile While You Shake It!”

We had a great turnout at our party, but unfortunately, with all the fun happening, I forgot to take pics until after some of the guests had left – whoops!  We had a great time coming up with dance moves and watching each other attempt to dance.  Then at the end, each of the participants wrote their name on a piece of paper and we drew the winner’s name!  Everyone had a great time and we even talked about entering once a week through June.  After all, a $500 gift card prize is pretty dang awesome!  

Be sure to follow Honey Bunches of Oats on Facebook and Twitter.  You can enter the “Smile While You Shake It” Contest until June 16, 2014.
