Froot Loops Wed, 09/27/06 6:15 AM (permalink)
I love this cereal,but the last few years i get these crappy rings that frankly look like they have been thru hell!!

There are gashs in them,they arent round like they used to be,they are just a big mess!!!!!!!!!! (Whatever happend to Quality?? (Dont answer,i already know ))

Sometimes i can goto a smaller store like Hess or Mobil and find a smaller box with BETTER QUALITY RINGS,but the price is higher (But quite frankly i dont care)

/rant over

    I eat Fruit Loops with warm milk because they'll slice up the roof of my mouth otherwise!

          The fruity cheerios are pretty darn good, IMO.

              They taste like apples, the way air freshener smells like the sea and a scented candle smells like a summer breeze -- not the real thing, but not unpleasant, either! *snicker*

                Fruity Cheerios are NOT Froot Loops. If you are a parent trying to substitute, and your kids have never tasted Froot Loops... then you may have found a compromise. But if you know what Froot Loops taste like, why shouldn't your kids find out also?

                  Exactly.........Froot loops are the BEST of the 4 cereals that are shaped like the letter "O" (Froot loops,Cheerios,Apple Jacks and Fruity Cheerios)

                    I like Trix better. And so did our beloved old black dog (who is now in doggie heaven.) She would pitch a fit when I got the Trix box out of the cupboard and I would have to give her some. Remember the commercial: "Silly rabbit, Trix are for kids?" They were for big black dogs, too...

                        Cheerios has about 19 different "flavors" now. Honey nut, yogurt covered, multigrain, wild berry, etc. Some are pretty good, but none beat the original IMO.

                              dbrandon, actually we never knew what tht dog was, every vet we took her to in her almost 17 years with us, had a different version of what they thought she was. When we bought her for $15 in a pet shop, they told us she was a mix of standard poodle and collie. She loved water, and had enough hair for two dogs. She shed that hair like a champ. We never did figure out which part was the poodle. And she talked. We honestly believe that what she was, was a person in a dog suit.

                                Ha ha I ate Captn Cruch as I child and that was a cereal you couldn't eat every day because it would truly serrate the roof of your mouth. I loved the crunch berries!

                                    I also notice that they do not have much flavor @ all!!!

                                    When im eating them in milk i cant taste any flavor really! (They have (like most everything else) gone down the tubes!!)

                                    I might try (this might sound surprising) fruity cheerios or the store brand of "froot loops" and see if they taste more like what i remember froot loops tasting like years ago (Much more flavor)

                                        Excellent


                                        Well im trying some FRUITY CHEERIOS right now and i notice there is MORE FLAVOR than fruit loops (Froot loops used to have much flavor but recentlythey dont have as much (Hardily @ all (@ least these i can taste flavor in my mouth!!)))

                                        When the box runs out im gonna try the store name brand "Fruit Rings" and see how they are...... Im trying to find a cereal thats as close to what i remember as i can (And froot loops were delicious years ago.....VERY TASTY)

                                        Fruity Cheerios uses NATURAL FLAVORS that might be why it tastes better (I think froot loops went to artifical flavors years ago...)

                                        Ah well........@ least GM's tastes slightly better!! (More flavor)

                                          Well i tried a store brand of FROOT LOOPS and FRUITY CHEERIOS and they were both disgusting So i went back to froot loops..

                                          I guess they dont have as much flavor cause they use NATURAL FLAVORING and they used to use ARTIFICAL (Which gave them much more flavor)

                                          Ah well.......

                                            I just found a NEW version of froot loops!!

                                            They are made by: Malt-o-Meal!!

                                            http://www.malt-o-meal.com/pages/Cereals.asp?ID=22

                                            They have alot more flavour than Froot loops do and i hope the quality doesnt do down the tubes!! (I hope Kelloggs doesnt give them any trouble over this,thiers is better!)

                                              They were not fresh,when i bit into them they were kinda soft slightly...
