Review & Giveaway: New Kelloggs Cereals

posted in: Competition, Food & Drink, Review | 118

A while ago I said you’d be getting three breakfast cereal posts in quick succession. That was a month ago now. Oops. Anyway, here’s the second!

Kelloggs have introduced four new cereals with lower sugar to give us a good balanced start to the day. Aimed at children (and considered healthy enough to be advertised on children’s telly), they are made with wholegrain, are high in fibre, and are a good source of Vitamin D. The range includes new Coco Pops Croc Prints, Rice Krispies Multi-Grain Shapes Strawberry, Honey Loops and Honey Pops.

I might not have children but I do enjoy a bowl of cereal (at any time of the day!) and so Kelloggs sent me a box of each of the new range to try. I’ve been singing this ever since they arrived…

Well ok they’re not honey NUT loops – just miss that bit out – but they are really tasty. Both the loops and the Honey Pops have a nice sweet-with-honey flavour. Between these two similar cereals the loops are easier to eat – softer in texture – but the pops last longer in the milk without going soggy.

The Coco Pops Croc Prints were lovely. Just like Coco Pops in taste, turning the milk suitably chocolaty, these were just as I’d hoped they’d be. And if they’re better for me than traditional Coco Pops then I’m happy.

It was the Strawberry Rice Krispie Shapes I was most concerned about. I mean I love (love love) Coco Pops but I wasn’t at all sure about a Strawberry flavoured cereal. And to be honest I’m still not. I think they’re designed to be to strawberry what Coco Pops are to chocolate, but for me it doesn’t work so well. The thing that puts me off them is they go grey – food just shouldn’t be grey.

You don’t have to take my thoughts on the new Kelloggs breafast cereals for granted as I have one of each of the new range to give away to one of my readers.

    Anytime – Cereal always helps fill those hunger pangs!

  3. Michelle

    When I want something to eat but not a “proper meal” – just something to fill the gap and that’s when cereal really comes into it’s own 🙂

  4. Zoe Howarth

    In the morning mostly and on the odd occasion in the evening if I have a craving!!

  5. sonya horton

    My favorite time to eat cereal is anytime of the day cus i can 😛

    I like to eat it in the mornings when I have the time, though sometimes if I’m in a rush I’ll have a bowl later for tea instead.

  7. Amanda Hurst

    Any time of day, all day…….I fill my pockets with the not so sticky cereal and eat it all day as a healthy snack……I would of had chocolate or crisps before I started doing this. 🙂

  16. Rebekah Powley

    In the evening as a snack after tea, but any time is acceptable for cereal in my eyes!

    It used to be in the evenings but since I started eating healthier it is in the morning.
