New Fruity Cheerios

To keep Cheerios, their #1 cereal brand, thriving General Mills regularly introduces innovative new variations.

The latest is Fruity Cheerios, an obvious competitor to Kellogg's Froot Loops, but with the emphasis on being much healthier. Fruit Cheerios contain whole grains, natural flavor from real fruit juice, and less sugar.

Parents and guilt-ridden consumers might just buy it. It's backed by the venerable Cheerios brand, but offers a new level of variety without resorting to the cartoon-style cereals.

ate some today and they didn't meer my expetactions. Taste like fruity pebbles but with half the flavor and a bad after taste. Kids loved them, though. I teach preschool. 2 adults hated them and 8 out of 9 kids loved them.

Sounds like they'll make potty training fun.... peeing on these colorful targets will teach many little boys (and maybe some bigger boys) the art of aiming. Rock on!

oh my goodness I love them!!! I bought them last night.... was excited to try them this morning at work. I am a freak for 'kiddie' cereals and know I should eat healthier ones.
they aren't as sweet as fruit loops, and not as tart as trix. I can tell I am eating whole grains. yet... its SO GOOD!

Fruity Cheerios saved my life. After suffering with depression for quite some time, I found these little pieces of heaven wandering through the cereal aisle in my local supermarket. When I emerged from that fog with my beautiful new fruity friend in hand, I found Jesus in the frozen food aisle and even made a huge breakthrough in therapy. I am no longer on medication and feel great. Thanks Fruity Cheerios for being there for me in my greatest hour of need. God bless you.

I had these this morning and they are DISGUSTING! They have a horrible taste I had to throw the bowl out. They look like they are coated in a shiny plastic and taste just the same. I'll stick with the regular Cheerios which are WAAAAY better.

I love Fruity Cheerios,even more so than Fruit Loops themselves!They taste great,aren't too sweet,and aren't classic Cheerios (which I think are gross)!

I didn't think I'd like these, but they're actually pretty good. I'm not big on froot loops so these are a welcome fruity cereal :)

Fruity Cheerios are so wonderful! They are wonderful to eat with milk and are great on their own as well.

Karen said...

Taste the same as fruit loops.. :< Sugar laden and colorful. Just smaller-- more bite-sized. Eh. I don't like either anyways.

Cheerios do have a cartoon mascot-- the bee.

I'd just stick to honey.

Highly unsatisfactory! Check out my blog post on these at kvpoe.blogspot.com

I found these to taste like crunchy little rings of cardboard treated with a pesticide, and that groovy slimy texture they get on the surface once milk has been introduced is really helpful. Those of you who claim to like them obviously have lost control of your tastebuds. Or have become numb due to a diet of overprocessed foodstuffs.

YAWN, haters. If any of you find the Fruity Cheerios to have a "chemical aftertaste" or tasted pesticide, that's because they're naturally flavoured... with juice... from... guess what? It ain't artificial concentrated flavour/colour, like Froot Loops, the juice is from FRUIT!

It's light, and crunchy. That's makes Cheerios superior. And the Fruity Cheerios is just like its brother, but, well, fruitier. Fans of Froot Loops may not be used to the lighter taste (not that much sugar, ahahah!), and those who were disgusted/taste chemicals/pesticides... try eating Froot Loops first. I feel guilty eating those Loops, but not these Cheerios. Good one GM!

This cereal saved my life. I ate it before going into battle, and it allowed me the strength to press on. Through the Mongols left the streets greasy with human fat, my men were victorious in this battle at least, and I owe this to General Mills. I hope to enjoy many more bowls of Fruity Cheerios as we reclaim our stolen homeland.
