  1. Alpha-bit is horrible with the new and improved taste. Make two different kinds if you want to make it with less sugar. You’ve ruined the original taste that everybody loved. Shame on you Post.

    1. I agree 100%. Giant letters with a too soft texture. They’ve lost that hard crunchiness. And they taste terrible too! Post has ruined my favorite cereal.

  2. This new version of Alpha Bits contains wheat flour which it did not a few months back. This kills all taste and takes this cereal off the table for anyone with wheat allergies. The cereal used to contain only oats and corn.

  3. I have eaten Alpha Bits nearly every single day for the last 3 years. Now this “New & Improved” version. They just lost a customer of 365 boxes per year unless they get some damn quality control. This may be new, but it is NOT an improvement.
