In honor of Halloween, I thought I’d do review of a popular cereal that has made it’s way back onto the shelves, and one that I never had as a kid. I was always a fruity pebbles guy and these days I tend to end the boring healthy cereal if i do partake in a milk soaked breakfast. (Review Below)
You can’t tell from looking at this pic, but cereal box sizes have shrunk. It’s smaller than the Cheerios and Honey Bunches of Oats that it joined above my fridge. Also look at his mouth… On the right it looks like he has some sort of inward facing boil at the corner of his lip? The contents within are what’s important though.
The cereal itself is a purplish color and is only sparsely sprinkled with marshmallows, which may disappoint the kids who might want an amount on par with Lucky Charms, but it didn’t bother me. The cereal shapes stay crunchy for a good while so you don’t get the instant soggy that some cereals give you. It was good to the last bite. The taste of course is what matters most, and it was solid. It has a blue berry like taste, but it’s sweeter than a real blue berry (of course.) It wasn’t overpowering, so sugar fiends might be underwhelmed but it had loads more flavor than the last cereal I reviewed (the criminally awful Scooby Doo cereal. )
As a fan of blue berry and other fruity cereals I can easily see why there is a nostalgic love for it, I’d prefer it over Count Chocula any day, but it isn’t quite as good as my classic kid’s fav (Fruity Pebbles all the way!) I’d give it a 8/10
