CABOT, ARKANSAS -- I opened a brand new box of my favorite special k chocolatey strawberry cereal and opened a brand new milk and poured it into my bowl. After about 3 bites I noticed a flattened bug (dunno what it was) floating around... I then noticed 2 other flattened bugs... I'm disgusted. If they were live I would think it happened in storage or transit but the fact that these bugs were flat and dead leads me to believe it happened during manufacturing. I'm absolutely disgusted.. Who knows if I ate one during my 3 bites. I can't see myself ever being able to stomach any kind of cereal ever again.
My breakfast this morning is Kellogg's Frosted Mini Wheats Little Bites, in the new Cinnamon Roll flavor, which I am eating right out of the box. If I don't put the box down soon, there will be none left! I'm not sure I would like these with milk, but they are delicious on their own. In fact, I like all the Frosted Mini Wheat varieties, especially Chocolate and Touch of Fruit in the Middle. The Cinnamon Roll is my new favorite. They are an "Excellent Source of Fiber and Grain", but don't let that scare you. They are really good. I am now closing the box and saving them for someone else (if I don't get back to them first).
Am I the only one noticing this? I don't eat Froot Loops every month but every couple of months I get the urge for that fruity flavor that brings back memories of my childhood. I get a huge family sized box and I eat it ALL MYSELF! NO SHARING. Today, after not having it for several months, I bought a box and noticed it says *now provides fiber* and *same great taste*. I thought, well *BONUS* for me-right? NOT!
It looks like regular Froot Loops and smells like regular Froot Loops but one spoonful had me checking the date code - did I get an old box? Nope! Date code is 2010! They taste terrible, no flavor, and they have a weird aftertaste. Am I the only one noticing this? Did my tastebuds become defective from yesterday (when I was eating Lucky Charms) to today?
WAYNESBURG, PENNSYLVANIA -- I was getting the last 2 bowls of cereal from my raisin bran box. I ate 1 bowl and took 1 bite from the second bowl and noticed that what I thought were tiny parts of the flake in the milk appeared to have little arms or legs sticking out of 1 end. I looked closer and that's when it happened. THEY WERE MOVING!! I almost threw up and still want to. I didn't have them in any other box of cereal in the same cabinet door or on the cabinet itself. They were just in the cereal and after I pulled the bag out they were crawling in the box as well. This is very sick since I have no clue what I just ate. Be aware. I emailed the company and contacted the local store as well.
TAMPA, FLORIDA -- I am thoroughly disgusted as I just opened a brand new package of Kellogg's Raisin Bran Crunch cereal only to find there were live, little bugs not only in the box, but in the cereal bag as well. An unopened bag of cereal should NOT have ANYTHING but the cereal in it. This USED to be my favorite cereal, but not if this continues. It makes you wonder what's going on at the factory. I know for a fact it didn't come from my home because I opened another brand new, unopened box of Life cereal and no bugs were present and both boxes were in the same cabinet.
I was looking for a healthy breakfast snack to bring to work and I saw a box of Special K Fruit Crisps. I decided to buy a box of the strawberry kind. I am so glad I did! They taste just like Pop Tarts. Each pack comes with 2 bars and are a total of 100 calories per pack. That's way less than a packet of Pop Tarts.
The only downside is that the bars are not as big as a Pop Tart. I've been pairing the bars with some cottage cheese or yogurt and fruit. If you like Pop Tarts, but want to save on calories and carbs, I would recommend these Fruit Crisps. They also come in blueberry and chocolate flavors.
BATTLE CREEK, MICHIGAN -- I bought three boxes of Special K red berries cereal in June 2012. The expiration date on the box was May 2013. When I opened the cereal the following morning and poured it into a bowl, I was shocked to see dozens of little bugs climbing out of the cereal when I started pouring milk on it. I will never buy a Kellogg's product again. What kind of filth infested factory allows bugs to get inside their product. Shame on Kellogg's manufacturing.
I am sorry to hear this happened to you. Please call our contact center and give this reference number and they will be able to help you out.
I purchased an 8 pack of pre-made Kellogg's rice crispy treats. I opened one package (stamped numbers on package are **) and found what looked like a roach 'blended' into the snack. After many searches, it seems Kellogg's doesn't make it easy to make them aware of these issues. I won't be buying these again.
NEW HAMPSHIRE -- I bought the organic cereal strawberry fields. I thought there were supposed to be strawberries in it. I could count on one hand and have a few fingers left of the strawberries in the box. What a letdown, all flakes. Add more strawberries or just call it wheat flakes. Ridiculous. A big company like that too cheap to spring for more than that.
