REVIEW: Limited Edition Trix Swirls Cereal

Oh man, Trix fanboys must be creaming in their pants after seeing the Limited Edition Trix Swirls Cereal. It has TWO fruity colors in every puff. If that doesn’t make Trix fanboys scream like little girls at a Jonas Brothers concert, they’re not a true Trix fanboy.

As for myself, I don’t consider myself a Trix fanboy, I prefer Fruity Pebbles. I know what you Trix fanboys are thinking, “Fruity Pebbles doesn’t even match the fruitiness of Trix and no one would’ve bought it if it weren’t tied in with the Flintstones cartoon.” Pfff…Whatever, at least with Fruity Pebbles I don’t have to eat balls of cereal. Sticking balls in your mouth? No wonder they called it Trix.

I bet you Trixxies use the phrase “silly rabbit” in normal conversation whenever you can and also think the rabbit shouldn’t get to eat Trix. Seriously, that’s really sad. What kind of sick bastard would deny the Trix Rabbit the cereal he’s named after? That’s like not giving a dog their bone or Kim Kardashian not wearing a tight outfit to deny the paparazzi from taking photos of her huge ass.

If the Trix Rabbit was in front of me right now, I would share my box of the Limited Edition Trix Swirls Cereal with him. I’d pour us a couple of bowls, pull out some spoon and then curse all those kids who wouldn’t give him Trix over the years. We’d eat those bowls and then wonder what the hell is so special about the combined flavors — Berry Berry Blue, Rasporangey Orange and Lemony Green — because the cereal smells and tastes just like regular Trix.

I’m pretty sure the Trix fanboys are saying, “Well, duh! Of course, it’s supposed to taste like Trix because it’s Trix!”

But being “Limited Edition” means there should be something special about it, like adding marshmallows or freeze-dried fruit. Just making swirled cereal pieces that don’t look like they have swirls is just lame. If I wanted a cereal that tastes like Trix, I would’ve bought a box of regular Trix.

Oh wait. If I wanted a cereal that tastes like Trix, I’d buy Fruity Pebbles and share it with the Trix Rabbit too.

Pros: If you like Trix, it tastes like Trix. Fruity Pebbles is better. Letting the Trix Rabbit eat Trix. It’s a limited edition, so it will be gone soon.
Cons: It tastes like Trix, nothing special about it. Swirls idea is extremely lame. Being a bastard and not allowing the Trix Rabbit to eat Trix. Trix fanboys.

    FBs FTW! The texture is WAY better.

    ….I will however show support for Trix yogurt….remember that stuff….it was actually pretty good…but sadly Mr. Rabbit didn’t get that either.

    OMG, I can’t beleive there are that many “Mommy Blogs” that reviewed this….did you actually read any of them? I’m not going to so I was hoping for a synopsis from you :) What did they think?

    Question….because I know you’ll have a good answer….what’s your opinion of the Mommy Bloggers?

  2. there are several things wrong with those “mommybloggers” one, they ALL reviewed the same PR package from general mills. and the ALL are giving some away… and they all tweet way too much!

    i gave up on trix when they stopped making them in fruity shapes. :-(

  3. I always wanted to send that poor rabbit money so he could buy his own damn box of Trix. Of course, I was also hoping that the money would appease him enough so he wouldn’t take a tommy gun to a kid’s breakfast and blow away all the brats that denied him.

  4. Man, I love this site, one of the very few sites that I’m able to read through the whole thing without scratching my eyes, as my retina starts to burn.

    Anyway, Fruity Pebbles are the shit, how can you not love the Flinstones, am I right?

    Haha, they used swirls as an excuse for a limited edition item?

    Keep up the good work! The site is amazing.

  5. Thanks for the link to our review. I agreed to try the new Trix because I’ve got 4 kids in the house and, well, seemed like a pretty good fit, no? Also, the “PR review package” included 2 sets of art supplies to share with other families.

  6. 30 times….

    30 times you wrote the word Trix, that´s a lot of Trix (and I have a lot of free time :P)

    WOw… seems like mommies went crazy with that cereal.

  7. Dear Marvo

    You are the mother effin MAN!

    @Erin Brooks

    YEAH RIGHT! The only reason I ever even bought trix was for the way they were shaped like fruits. Now that they are just little balls there is nothing special or redeeming about them.

    Fruity Pebbles and Fruit Loops FTW

  8. Marvo, I love you even more now. Only you would link to every mommy blog ever. I like how they didn’t all give a shout out to My Blog Spark..whatever that is. Maybe you’ll get more emails about being a Mommy Blogger now.

    Oh, and Lucky Charms FTW. Even if my Italian heritage means a rivalry with the Irish, they’re still delicious.

  9. wow, i dig that they went all old-school with the original roundy-shaped trix. i kinda wanna eat these just to bring back memories of pre-fruit shaped cereal, but then i’d start missing my old color-changing trix spoon of yore that i got out of the box back in grade school and i’d be all sad that i don’t have it anymore and then i’d just end up pining over lost childhood. so, i think i’ll stick with my lucky charms.

  10. Marvo, I’ve read you for a long time, but this is my first time comment.

    Your Trix Fan Boys is genius and a great name for a band. Your SOB’s who withhold Trix from the Rabbit is also genius. And then the Mommy blog links. You’re the Einstein of amazingly bad food reviewers.
