I bought this big box of Froot Loops at the supermarket. Froot Loops is the old standby for stoners and children alike when it comes to quick sweet carbs. But Kellogs have changed it, they have added fiber, saying that its a great way to keep kids healthy. The front of the box says it has the same great taste which I knew was a lie. When ingredients is changed in food, whether you’re adding to it or taking something out, it never tastes the same. Why I bought this cereal then? Hey, it’s hard to turn down a box that contains 27% more Froot Loops.
After watching some television, I opened up the box and chowed down on some Froot Loops without milk and my taste buds picked up right away there was a certain dryness to the texture I never tasted before. The core taste of Fruit Loops was still there along with the sweetness but there is now a very dry aftertaste to it. Froot Loops is one of those cereals I love to eat without milk, but looks like Kelloggs put a stop to that with the fiber. Even adding milk, the dryness is still there. It was only when the cereal turned all soggy did that dryness disappeared. Perhaps I was made very aware of the difference and it probably would not have bothered me if I didn’t know Froot Loops now have fiber. But as of right now, I do notice it and it taste like they grinded up a cereal box into the cereal itself and then called it a balance diet.
Why did Kellogs have to go about adding fiber to this already great cereal? Kids don’t need fiber, old people do. The last time I checked, most kids don’t struggle taking a poop or require Metamucil. If you have babies or toddlers eating cereal, it should be something along the lines of Cheerios anyway, not Froot Loops. Sugary cereals like Froot Loops is junk food in disguise, I don’t know why Kellogs is trying to turn it into a multi-vitamin pellet for humans. So now everytime I want to eat Froot Loops, I have to soak it really good in milk before eating it. Those who cannot stand soggy cereal might have to look else where if they can’t deal with the new fiber taste.
