Update: Click here to read our Post Limited Edition Pebbles Boulders review

I wonder if kids nowadays know Fred Flintstone as the main character of a 1960s cartoon or as the fatso on the front of Pebbles cereals boxes? I’d find out myself by producing some children of my own, but I thought it would be faster, cheaper, and less poop-filled to just ask those who already have young children.

The reason why I bring Mr. Flintstone up is because his mug is on another Pebbles cereal. This time it’s the Limited Edition Caramel Apple Pebbles Boulders, which consists of two types of cereal — brown, caramel-flavored, boulder-shaped cereal and green, apple-flavored, bone-shaped cereal.

Limited Edition Caramel Apple Pebbles Boulders boasts it has more whole grain than Honey Nut Cheerios. So does that mean it may also help lower cholesterol like Honey Nut Cheerios?

A 3/4 cup serving of Pebbles Boulders without milk has 110 calories, 10 calories from fat, 1.5 grams of fat, 0 grams of saturated fat, 0.5 grams of monounsaturated fat, 0.5 grams of polyunsaturated fat, 0 milligrams of cholesterol, 75 milligrams of sodium, 50 milligrams of potassium, 22 grams of carbohydrates, 2 grams of fiber, 8 grams of sugar, 12 grams of other carbohydrates, and is fortified with a bunch of vitamins and minerals.

    This won’t save you the trouble of procreating to find out for yourself but as a parent of a young child, I keep Fred Flintstone a non-entity to my son. I hate the guy and the clueless male he represents – ditto for Homer Simpson and that whole genre of indolent, well-meaning-but-stupid TV husbands.

    Never liked the cereal either. Bah! Humbug! Peanut Butter Captain Crunch or death!

    Well Seth McFarlaine(sp?) was given the greenlight to do a Flintstone remake series so… they might know soon.

    Lizabet, you stole the words from ym mouth. Tony the Tiger is all about male empowerment. Get your kids the good stuff.

    (As a full grown adult make, however, I wish to escape said adult problems by way of dumbing down, and will do so by buying this cereal, which actually looks pretty good.)
