What is Kellogg’s Limited Edition Froot Loops Tropical Cereal?
It’s a sweetened multi-grain cereal with pineapple, banana, orange, and mango flavors.
How is it?
Of the four fruits listed, pineapple is the only one I can truly distinguish with my non-toucan-sized nose.
Like regular Froot Loops, there aren’t any differences in flavor between the colors. So mix and match all you want, it’ll all taste the same in your mouth. And what does it taste like? Well, I can best explain it by taking the opening sentence of this review and adding some delete HTML tags to it, like this:
A sweetened multi-grain cereal with pineapple,
banana, orange, and mango flavors.
If your tongue can pinpoint the banana in this, that would be more impressive than it being able to tie a cherry stem into a knot.
When eaten dry, the pineapple and orange flavors are most noticeable. Unfortunately, I’ve only been able to get a hint of mango in the aftertaste. But don’t eat this dry! When eating it with my usual Silk Vanilla Soy Milk, it tastes much better, and the fruitiness comes out more. Also, eating it dry allows the underlying multi-grain cereal to be more prominent in the aftertaste. I also noticed is that, even with milk, the flavors don’t have the same punch as original Froot Loops.
Anything else you need to know?
Even though the colors don’t determine any flavors, it’s hard to ignore the green ones. I understand the yellow one, which represents bananas and pineapples. The orange one is self-explanatory, and it probably also represents the mango. But I don’t understand the green ones. Looking at the box, do they stand for coconut tree leaves or the pineapple’s crown? It could also be mango, but a green mango means it’s not ripe.
Overall, Limited Edition Froot Loops Tropical Cereal was a bit of a letdown. As someone who enjoys banana, naturally or artificially flavored (Hello, fellow banana Runts lovers!), I wish I could taste it in this. Also, I do wish it had the same fruitiness level as regular Froot Loops.
