Wienerschnitzel Debuts Breakfast Cereal Milkshakes, Kind Of Like Burger King’s

Last year, Burger King introduced a line of breakfast cereal shakes to the fast food world. These included Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Froot Loops, and Lucky Charms.

Well, it looks like Wienerschnitzel is following in Burger King’s footsteps by releasing their own line of breakfast cereal shakes.

Announced on their Facebook page, the three new flavors are: Cocoa Krispies, Trix, and Cinnamon Toast Crunch.

A Cinnamon Toast Crunch shake was also Burger King’s latest addition to their limited time menu last October. Wonder if the burger chain will reciprocate with their own versions of Cocoa Krispies and Trix shakes?

The three shakes will be available at participating Wienerschnitzel locations from now through April. You can get one for $2.99 with a coupon found here.

Hmm, if we had to choose, a trip to Wienerschnitzel would probably be more worthwhile for our gut. We do love our chili dogs.

Trix Cereal Brings Back Popular Dyes, Because No One Cared About All-Natural Colors

A while back, General Mills promised a major change with their Trix brand, pledging to remove artificial coloring from the popular children’s breakfast cereal. Unfortunately, the well-intentioned execution ended up like that episode of The Simpsons where all the kids had to wear uniforms: dreary.

Looks like the cereal company has had a change of heart.

General Mills announced that they will kick it old school with the original colors of the luminescent cereal. Sorry, All-Natural Trix. Being reintroduced to the ingredient line-up, along with high-fructose corn syrup, are artificial dyes Red 40 and Blue 1.

Complaints were made that the new variation was essentially a shadow of the cereal’s former sweet self, both in taste and appearance. Some even compared it to a salad, reported the Wall Street Journal. You know kids aren’t going to want salads for breakfast.

Like the ending of the aforementioned Simpsons episode, Trix will return to their classic colors this October in all its saturated glory. Truthfully, they look much more appetizing at this vibrance. Definitely tastes better, too.

Denver Ice Cream Shop Scoops Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Trix, and Cocoa Puffs-Flavored Ice Cream

ice-cream-riot-1

Let’s face it, as much as we reminisce, the chances of us actually buying and eating any of the sugary cereals of our past is slim to none. Eating ice creams that taste exactly like them though? Um, yes. Pls. Pls pls pls pls. Pls.

At the Ice Cream Riot parlor in Denver, Colo., there are, at any given time, four rotating cereal-flavored ice creams — all made in house, all guaranteed to make you both wish you were a child and grateful you’re a grown up with money and no one to tell you no at the same damn time. Each flavor both tastes like and contains pieces of the cereal it’s named after, from Fruity Pebbles to Cinnamon Toast Crunch to Cookie Crisp, Apple Jacks, Crunch Berries and most recently, Pumpkin Pie Pop Tarts.

Back in August, store owner Jim also nabbed himself a bit of internet infamy when he posted a note to stating he closed the store early due to rain and could be found on his couch “taking bong hits” and hanging out with hippies.

Coming from a guy selling everything from cereal to Doritos-flavored ice cream, hell, we believe it.

I Learned Something Devastating About Froot Loops Cereal Today

IMG_2931RS

First things first, yes, check the box. They’re spelled “Froot Loops,” not “Fruit Loops.” We know, right?

Second, the outrage. Honestly, is there no end to the high fructose corn syrup lies? It turns out the “fruit flavored” circles touted by Toucan S[c]am are actually just “froot-blend”-flavored.Yep, all those pretty ROYGBV dyes don’t mean diddly, since each color tastes exactly the same!

Q&A site The Straight Dope (via Reddit) reports that, just as that blue tropical bird mascot hasn’t changed since the cereal’s creation in 1962, neither has Froot Loops’ flavor — that’s flavor, singular. According to Wikipedia, “The cereal pieces are ring-shaped (hence ‘loops’) and come in a variety of bright colors and a blend of fruit flavors (hence ‘froot’),” and not “fruit.”

Of course, not keen on destroying precious childhood memories, we decided to do a little blind taste testing ourselves, only to find that each loop does in fact taste like mildly sweetened cardboard, with negligible or no differences between them.

(Method: We handed our three blind tasters random samples of Froot Loops and asked them to guess which color they had been given. The results were pretty sporadic, with nearly each color being wrongly identified as around three or four others. The yellow loop, for example, was guessed to be red, orange, and purple twice; the purple loop, red twice, and then yellow, and green. Our Trix and Fruity Pebbles tests afterward yielded similar results.)

Basically, all our childhood heroes are nothing but big fat liars. Infinite tears. </3

Electronic Cereal Boxes

Created and displayed by Fulton Innovation during the recent CES event in Vegas, we are now privy to a company doing some crazy things in terms of electronically advanced food products. One of the highlights of their demonstrations were these illuminating cereal boxes. In the video after the jump, we get to see a Trix box and Honey Nut Cheerios in full illuminated effect. No word on the company behind the boxes being in any formal relationships with any cereal brands, but if any updates on these boxes become available, y’all will be the first to find out! Oh future, you are here. Weird huh?
