Frosted Flakes And Froot Loops Cereal Bars Let You Take Breakfast Cereals On The Road

Some mornings, sitting down to a bowl of children’s breakfast cereal is low-key one of the highlights of my day. With work and the everyday hustle, sitting down to relax with a bowl of cereal can be more challenging some days than others. 

Kellogg’s looks to have found a fix for this, in the form of their new breakfast cereal bars. 

The new bars are available in Frosted Flakes and Froot Loops options. They’re made with cereal pieces packed together with a sweet frosted base. Each bar equates to half a serving of cereal. 

Guess that means you can mix and match either flavor to get the full serving. 

You can find the new cereal bars at participating retailers nationwide beginning this month.

We see new candy canes hit the candy aisle every year, boasting new flavors and vibrant colors to spark the upcoming holiday festivities.
This year, Kellogg’s has released the first-ever Froot Loops Cereal Candy Canes.

The naturally-flavored candy canes are combined with Toucan Sam’s bright bevy of colors to form a unique take on the iconic holiday confection.

Not gonna lie. I’ve always been a bigger fan of the fruit-flavored versions of candy canes over the original peppermint flavor. Pretty excited to try these.

You can find the new Froot Loops Cereal Candy Canes in packs of 12 at participating grocery snack aisles nationwide now.

Tim Hortons Unveils Froot Loops Donuts And Timbits

I have to admit, I’m a sucker for anything vibrant and colorful that comes in donut form. Blame it on growing up in a donut shop as a child or years of watching The Simpsons on syndication.

If you’re a fan of the same level of vibrance encompassing your fried dough confections, look to Tim Hortons for their latest innovation: Froot Loops Dream Donuts and Froot Loops Timbits.

The Froot Loops Dream Donuts are topped with a strawberry glaze, Froot Loops cereal, and white icing drizzle.

As for Tim Horton’s iconic Timbits, they are coated in a strawberry glaze and topped with Froot Loops crumbs to create a colorful variation of the iconic Canadian donut hole.

You can find these new Froot Loops donuts available now at participating U.S. locations of Tim Hortons.

Frosted Flakes And Froot Loops Get A First-Ever Cereal Mash-Up

As a kid, have you ever faced the tough decision between eating Frosted Flakes or Froot Loops for your breakfast cereal? Have you ever waited until your mom walked away and ended up just combining the two together? I totally have.

To the delight of my inner child, Kellogg’s has created the first-ever cereal mash-up between Frosted Flakes and Foot Loops.

Taking the colorful loops handcrafted by Toucan Sam and the Frosted Corn Flakes whipped up by Tony the Tiger, this amalgam of iconic breakfast cereals blends together two unique tastes.

Those who have combined the two in their youth will definitely know what this tastes like already, but the purists who can only have one box at a time will surely find some joy in this new experience.

The cereal mashup will be available at participating grocery retailers nationwide for a limited time beginning this June.

Froot Loops Mini Donuts Will Be Back On Carl’s Jr. Menus Soon

Last year, Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s brought a taste of childhood nostalgia to life in the form of Froot Loops mini donuts. Apparently, they were such a success that the chain has decided to bring them back.

Just like last time, the pastel-colored rainbow of mini donuts will be priced at $1.99 for a set of five.

They will come in the recognizable Froot Loops colors, with shades of red, blue, green, purple, and yellow being encased within the little box.

Hardee’s customers will have a chance to get these a couple of days before Carl’s Jr. fans, as they will start selling them February 25, while Carl’s Jr. is going to have them available starting February 27.

The Froot Loops mini donuts sold out in just a few weeks last time around, so you probably have about that long to get your hands on them for this second round.

Carl’s Jr. Is Now Serving FROOT LOOPS MINI DONUTS

Photo: Peter Pham

It seems Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s locations are taking some inspiration from one of our favorite childhood breakfast cereals. Their newest dessert features one in the form of Froot Loops Mini Donuts.

Guests of the two chains can order them in sets of five, with each donut sporting a different color (Red, Blue, Green, Purple, Yellow) resembling the iconic cereal. The donuts are said to actually taste like Froot Loops too, you just won’t need to douse milk all over them. I mean, you can, you just won’t need to.

The Froot Loops Mini Donuts will be available at participating Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s locations nationwide beginning Wednesday Aug. 29.

We haven’t seen anything this colorful come from a fast food chain since Taco Bell launched those icing-filled Cap’n Crunch Bites. In a time of social media dominance, this Instagram-friendly new addition, paired with that hint of ’90s nostalgia, might just be the winning combination for Carl’s Jr.

This Little Ice Cream Shop Offers The Most Whimsical Cones In Southern California

One of the best things about working at Foodbeast is keeping an eye on ice cream trends. Whether it be the Afters Ice Cream ‘Milky Bun,’ or the unique texture from charcoal cones, there are always interesting concepts that catch on in the ice cream game.

This will probably be the next trend.

Bumsan Milk Bar in Los Angeles is a little ice cream shop that prides itself on serving organic ice cream, and their new cereal-rimmed cones are creating a buzz in the ice cream world, incorporating some of our childhood favorites, such as Froot Loops, Oreo O’s, and even Cap’n Crunch.

We went down to Koreatown to check out these bad boys, and were not disappointed.

The cereal is mixed with a gooey marshmallow sauce that sticks to the rim of their cones. After that, you can choose from some pretty unique ice cream flavors, such as dragonfruit lychee, taro milk tea, and even a true milk & matcha swirl.

The ice cream cones are $5.95, with an additional $1.95 for the cereal inclusion. You get a pretty healthy serving of ice cream on it, too.

It’s a modest little mom and pop with the option to add pizzazz to your cones, but at its core, the ice cream is the star, and will probably be the key to their future success in a city littered with trendy ice cream shops.

If you want to experience a flashback to your childhood breakfast, mixed with an appreciation for boba shop flavors, you’re going to want to try this place out.

For The First Time In 10 Years, Froot Loops Releases A New Flavor

Photo: Constantine Spyrou

I remember one of my earliest breakfast pairings consisted of a bowl of Froot Loops cereal swimming in ice cold milk and a Saturday morning episode of Freakazoid! to kick off my weekend. While Freakazoid! is sadly no longer on the air, at least Froot Loops is still around to greet us every morning.

Well for the first time in a decade, Kellogg’s just released a new flavor of Froot Loops: Wild Berry. The brand’s last new flavor, back in 2007, was Froot Loops Smoothie.

Froot Loops’ new breakfast cereal boasts a new taste and shape, a bit different than the classic iteration. Still, change can be nice. The classic green, blue, and red Loops are joined by a new purple star — featuring tangy and sweet berry-inspired flavors.

Later this summer, apparel fans will also be able to check out the new AWAYTOMARS X Froot Loops fashion collection that’s inspired by the new Wild Berry Froot Loops. We’ll be sure to keep an eye out for more info as news arrives on that.

In the meantime, Kellogg’s new Wild Berry Froot Loops will be available at all major grocery stores and retailers nationwide.

Maybe I can track down a few episodes of Freakazoid! on YouTube and try a bowl of the new Wild Berry — you know, try and recapture that spark from my youth.
