Alien Berry Punch Flavored Oat Cereal (Fred Meyer)

This was the weirdest cereal I’ve had in a while. The cereal consists of yellow marshmallow stars, brown oat puffs, blue alien shapes, and a bizarre Cookie Crisp-style discus. It’s a good snack as a dry cereal, but once exposed to milk, the ingredients seem to break down and deteriorate into a frothy foam-like substance that isn’t very desirable. Even still, I ate it because it seemed cool and I liked the shapes.

Berry Bunch O’Krunch (Family Gourmet)

I typically have a soft spot for off-brand cereals, but this was just a poor experience all around. I did give an extra point, however, because 15 ounces of Berry Bunch O’Krunch costs a little over half the price of a box of Cap’n Crunch with Crunch Berries (of the same weight). The real stuff is definitely worth the extra expense!

Cap’n Crunch’s HomeRun Crunch (Quaker)

Do you like Cap’n Crunch with Crunch Berries? Do you not hate sports? Here’s something.

Cap’n Crunch with Crunch Berries (Quaker)

This was a great cereal-eating experience, especially compared to eating some of the lesser (much lesser), off-brand imitators out there.

Chex Clusters Fruit & Oats (General Mills)

If you’re into Chex and berries, you’ll like the flavor. I liked it. I didn’t love it, but not everything has to be a home run.

A bowl of Kellogg's Froot Loops.

Froot Loops (Kellogg's)

Froot Loops is such a standard that it’s barely even on my radar anymore—before now, I don’t remember the last time I even bought a box—yet I was having a hard time putting the bowl down as I was writing this review. It’s a delicious cereal that’s earned its status in breakfast history.

Frosted Mini Wheats Touch of Fruit in the Middle box.

Frosted Mini-Wheats Touch of Fruit in the Middle Mixed Berry (Kellogg's)

This was an excellent cereal all around, and as long as it’s still on the market, I doubt I’ll be buying regular, strawberry, chocolate, or any other breed of Frosted Mini-Wheats for the foreseeable future.

Fruity Whirls (Family Gourmet)

Overall, not great. Though it may seem unfair to some that this review is mostly comparisons to Froot Loops (rather than letting Fruity Whirls stand on its own merits), the fact is, these store brands are touted as seamless replacements for the big brands, and while it’s not stamped “compare-to Kellogg’s Froot Loops” on the package, that’s probably only because you can’t; there’s no comparison, Froot Loops is delicious, and Fruity Whirls is not.

Organic Flax Plus – Red Berry Crunch (Nature's Path)

I don’t want to say I hate this cereal, but I do. So I guess I will. I hate this cereal.
