Is this the one with hash browns and such? If so, YUM, my FAVORITE breakfast ever. (until Loopers cooks for me) (Meggs)
YUM! I've never been a big fan of breakfast foods, but this is amazing. I just microwaved it, but i think it would be extra delicious if you cooked it in a skillet with a little oil (sarah)

These are pretty good, but I always have an issue with Puffins and staleness. It's like as soon as I open the box, they lose some of their crunchiness. I get kind of tired of the coarse corn thing these have going on as the box goes on too... (fb)
Cocoa crunch
They're all right. (fb)
Fruit medley
This reminded me of fruit loops.  It was reall y sweet (to me).  The cereal bits were stuck together from all the sugar.  Ended up in the trash.  If you like sweet cereals, this is more your style. (monkey7)
Peanut butter
They're these crunchy puffy little peanut butter pillows with a subtle cornmeal taste. Lowfat. Not too sweet. (saskia)
These are the shit. Z and I will buy multiple boxes of these at a time, because he will sit down and eat a whole box of them for dinner. The texture is perfect, and they're big enough that you can carry them around and snack on them throughout the day. Oh, and my dogs are CRAZY for these too. They hear us open the bag and they come running into the kitchen and acting crazy. Now that's a recommendation. (veganrun)
Same issue with staleness, but these have the advantage of sweetened, greasy peanut butter. Actually, the grease is a little weird in milk, but fine if I'm eating them on their own, which is what happens with half the box...(fb)
Shredded wheat
I had to stop buying it because I would eat too much of it. (jkl)

Crunch berries
This is good for sometimes, but it's obviously really sweet. (AC)
Oops all berries

Original
Good for when you want a sweet cereal. The boxes are always huge. (AC)
Peanut butter crunch
This is pretty heavy. It's sweet + a lot of peanut butter. It does taste good, but a bit much. (AC)
Cascadian Farms
Cinnamon crunch
That stuff is like crack. I don't even eat it with milk, just straight. Yummmmmm. (veganrun)
While this is undoubtedly good, it's hard to get past the 4.69 for a 10oz box. Very similar to cinnamon toast crunch, with a slightly more wholesome taste. Leaves very good cinnamon milk. Nice for a treat, something I'll look for sales. (AC)
French vanilla almond granola

Fruit and nut granola

Maple brown sugar granola

Multigrain squares
These are pretty good, but then I realized that they actually have more calories than the cinnamon crunch cereal, so I realized they were a waste of my time, as the cinnamon crunch is the greatest cereal ever made. (veganrun)

Rainforest
you can often find it in the bulk bins.  It's so good I eat way too much of it when I have it. (berryraw)
Raspberry cream

Toffee almond

Heartland
Raisin granola cereal
Much better than expected! It has a great flavor, and quite a bit of sweetness. Not too many raisins, and good crunch. I would get this again, and interested in other flavors. (AC)
Kashi
Autumn wheat
I LOVE it; better than the Cinnamon Harvest, in my opinion. You might even love it more than Shredded Wheat, as I do! (awalker)
yummmmmmy. (algae)
It seems to be the same as Cinnamon Harvest without the cinnamon. Not as exciting. (taintedlove)
I didn't think I would love this much, but it is quite good. It is almost better than the cinnamon in a way that I don't understand.. It's a cross between the cinnamon and vanilla..no cinnamon, but with some of the sweetness of the Island vanilla. Not bland at all, but not super sweet. Good. (AC)
Cinnamon harvest
so amazingly good - & ive never been a fan of shredded wheat by any means before i tried it. (ppc)
with allmond milk;  I just love it (potatohead)
I didn't have huge hopes, since I've never loved Kashi before, but I really like it! It's like frosted mini wheats, but not so sweet and with whole wheat and cinnamon (but with enough sweetness). I'd get it again, and try the other similar ones. (AC)
That's my favorite too!! I used to eat the normal Frosted Shredded Wheat cereal until I found out there was gelatin in it.   Ugh. Anyways, Kashi is much better! I also really like that the ingredients are really simple.. Organic whole grain wheat, organic evaporated cane juice, organic cinnamon, natural cinnamon flavor. (taintedlove)
I like these. Very pleasant sweet cinnamon thing, better than the WF shredded wheat (texture is better). Though a little sweet, still definitely has a healthy thing going on. (fb)
Heart to heart
Apple cinnamon instant oatmeal

Maple instant oatmeal

Oat flakes and blueberry clusters

Island vanilla
really good (wayneshep)
This is good with a nice vanilla flavor, but I do prefer the cinnamon. It has a nice sweetness that's not too much. (AC)
Strawberry fields
This is good. It's not super surprising, but the flakes are nicely flavored and crunchy, and the strawberry pieces are flavorful. Sweet enough. (AC)
I don't often like cereals with fruit chunks in it, but this is good. The flakes are very crunchy and "fresh." (fb)
Toasted berry crumble

7 Whole grain
Flakes
These are pretty good! Not a lot going on, but they are nicely flavored. crunchy, and sweet enough. Good for fruit, or just alone. (AC)
Nuggets

Puffs

Kellogg's
Frosties

Raisin wheats

Rice crispies

Classic. I wouldn't pick these out for any reason, but they were always fun. (AC)
Good ole rice crispies. The same thing as any generic version. Works for makin rice krispies... yeah (fb)
Nature's Path Organic
Corn flakes
Fruit sweetened

Corn puffs

Crispy rice
Pretty good. Kellogg's Rice Krispies has a slightly better crunch. (saskia)
Envirokidz
Amazon frosted flakes
Very good! It's nice to have some frosted flakes. They were definitely sweet enough with vanilla almond milk, and pretty much just satisfied any possible desire for frosted flakes. Would get again. (AC)
Gorilla munch
It tastes just like Captin Crunch to me but it only has three ingredients. Organic corn meal, organic evaporated cane juice, sea salt. (gabri)
I'm not actually crazy about this--it's just too bland for me. (veganrun)
Fine - light and crunchy. Closest "regular" analog is Kix. I don't have this often, only because the other envirokidz things have flavorings, and this is plain. Still good though. (fb)
Koala crisp
A favorite. (narcissus)
really enjoyed it. It tastes like Cocoa Krispies cereal but not as sweet, gluten-free and a better crunch. I also like it because it leaves the milk in my cereal bowl just a little bit chocolatey. (saskia)
After I bought a box of this, I remembered that we used to get this sometimes in bulk in Montana. Anyway, I agree with saskia. It's good; like Cocoa Krispies, but healthier (tasting and nutrition). It's yummy, with no negatives. (AC)
YEAH KOALA KRISP. It's not as chocolaty as cocoa pebbles or other brands, but it's like made from whole (brown) rice grains instead of flat blebs o rice, which I like better in texture. Not oversweet. A favorite. (fb)
Leapin' lemurs
Aside from the super cute box, I'm not totally in love with these. They're definitely all right, but I don't get a strong chocolate OR pb flavor from them. They're very...okay. (veganrun)
Does not taste particularly peanut buttery or chocolaty. Not bad, but don't expect Reese's puffs. (fb)
Panda puffs
I could live on this stuff. I like the all of their cereals, but the PB the best. It's like Capn' Crunch!!!! (L2A)
We thought this was ok. Crunchy with light peanut butter flavor. Not one I would specifically get again. (AC)
These just make me want Peanut Butter Puffins. Poor substitute! (veganrun)
I like these. They have a light peanut butter flavor, and are otherwise the same-ish as Gorilla Munch. Doesn't have the greasiness of pb puffins.  (fb)
Flax plus
It's the best cereal I've ever had. Incredibly tasty (I never thought I'd say that about a cereal, but it is) and very healthy eating.  I like it with bananas, or blueberries or dried cranberries and Silk (unsweetened).  In fact, it's 7 AM, breakfast time and I think I'll have some right now.! (steviedg)

This is better than I expected. I did have it with (sweet) vanilla almond milk, but the whole thing was sweet enough and not too healthy tasting. Good balance of flavor, plenty of pumpkin seeds, and good crunch. (AC)
Pretty good. Not always a fan of granola, but I like this one. It's fairly sweet, has a little bit of cinnamon, generally pretty hard to dislike. Despite the name it's got no pumpkin pumpkin, but pumpkin seed. (fb)
Vanilla almond flax

Hot oatmeal
Apple cinnamon
All of these flavors have an off taste that is not enjoyable. Would not get again. (AC)
Favorite. Sweet, apple, cinnamon. Good stuff. NO OFF FLAVOR. (fb)
Cinnamon blueberry flax
All of these flavors have an off taste that is not enjoyable. Would not get again. Especially the flax ones-off flavor+flax flavor. (AC)
Cranberry ginger

Flax plus
All of these flavors have an off taste that is not enjoyable. Would not get again. Especially the flax ones-off flavor+flax flavor. (AC)
Also has NO OFF FLAVOR. I don't like this as much, because names like "flax plus" are not as delicious as "apple cinnamon". Also, the flax is whole, which I guess at least tells you how much flax is actually in it, but not very useful for digestion. (fb)
Hemp plus

Maple nut
All of these flavors have an off taste that is not enjoyable. Would not get again.  (AC)
Pretty good, and actually has bits of nuts in it! I like apple cinnamon better, but that's how it always is for me. NO OFF FLAVOR. (fb)
Multigrain raisin spice
I think this is maybe the best flavor of these, but still has that off taste. (AC)

YEAH. I don't mind the lil blueberries. LIL BLUEBERRIES ARE ADORABLE. I guess the multiple, different things in here is maybe weird texture-wise, but I like it. Vaguely healthy, still tasty. (fb)
Cranberry ginger
soo tasty. (ziziphus)
I did not detect the flavor of ginger or cranberry here. Son, I am disappoint. (fb)

Mango peach passion
might be my new favorite cereal. Crispy corn flakes with lightly sweetened little oat clusters and bits of mango and peach. The "real mango and peach pieces" aren't as big as they appear on the picture on the cereal box. But the cereal is still quite good. Love the oaty, sweet, crunchy combination of flavors. The cereal will make your tummy and heart happy. 10% of profits from the purchase of the cereal support community projects such as food banks and school programs. http://www.peacecereal.com/Products/Products.aspx (saskia)

This is not bad for a plain, corn cereal. They are addicting in a weird way. Not sweet or anything, but not a bad flavor. (AC)
Indeed crunchy, but corn bran is kinda off-puttingly healthy, though you wouldn't think of corn as TOO healthy, so... not much motive to eat this.  (fb)

Cinnamon
One of my all time favorite cereals. (AC)
YEAH CINNAMON LIFE. This cereal gets soggy pretty quickly, and has a fairly sweet center. EAT FAST (fb)
Maple and brown sugar

One of my favorites. (ppc)
I much prefer cinnamon, but this is different and interesting comparatively. (AC)
Just like the cinnamon, except no cinnamon. Still gets soggy quickly. Cinnamon is better. (fb)
Oat bran
I hoped this would be as delicious as Cracklin Oat Bran, and not so much, but still good. Still, I think I prefer oatmeal squares more. (fb)
Oatmeal squares
One of my favorites. (ppc)

And be careful about cereals you once thought were vegan. It seems like a lot of Kellog's cereals were once vegan (no milk products, no D3), but ingredients have since changed. (ex. Special K)

yo AC, do you know if Kellogg's Cracklin' Oat Bran is vegan? I can't find ingredients on their website. Are Post cereals all non-vegan (I don't remember)?

I don't know about the oat bran! I also cannot find any ingredients, but I think it's the D3 thing. I'll try to remember to look at a box.

0 likes

I found the ingredients. It says vitamin D, but does not specify what type. Is Kellogg's one of the companies that always uses D3, like General Mills? I get these peeps mixed up.

I do not remember. I pretty much gave up on all cereal with Vitamin D. Perhaps you should email?

Nah, I knew it had no pumpkin flesh when I saw the pumpkin seeds on the box. Just when I think of "pumpkin _____", I think pumpkin-flavored. MAYBE IT COULD HAVE DRY PUMPKIN IN IT IDK.

At least it has pumpkin something. Unlike the pumpkin spice Silk. -_-
