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.

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!
I am a few grams of sugar away from saying that I love this cereal. I really LIKE this cereal, but would like it more if they just upped the cinnamon/sugar/crunch factor just a bit. It’s still a really delicious snack and a great “healthy” alternative to Cinnamon Toast Crunch.
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.
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.
I fucking love this cereal. I think the “Mom’s Best” & “Naturals” tags on this box combined with a lack of artificial flavors makes me feel good about eating an otherwise “unhealthy” cereal. And I love marshmallow cereal, so it works out well. It’s great as a breakfast cereal and a dry snack, so bonus points for that as well.
