REVIEW: Limited Edition Peach Mango Cheerios Cereal

Sometimes, I wonder if I should stick Cheerios flavors in my freezer to preserve them. Sure, they’re full of preservatives that make them last for months, but I want to keep flavors around for much longer so that I can hatch new fruity combinations like I’m a Jurassic Park scientist bringing dinosaurs back to life. My current chest freezer research on the Best Buy website is the result of my introduction to Limited Edition Peach Mango Cheerios Cereal.

Peach Cheerios has been done before, but mango is new in the Cheerios Extended Universe, and now I wish I could combine it with banana Cheerios. Also, why hasn’t there been a Chocolate Banana variety, General Mills? Anyhoo, before I start rattling off a bunch of Cheerios mashups I’d like to taste, I have to say that this limited edition summery cereal is awe-summer than other fruity varieties I’ve had.

Which ones are peach, and which ones are mango? Um, it’s definitely hard to tell by looking at them. They both look like the siblings of regular Cheerios that like to get occasional spray tans. It’s also difficult to tell by tasting them. I’ve been eating the pieces one by one to taste if there’s a difference, but my taste buds can’t detect whether some cereal pieces are peachy and others are mango-y. Are they both peach AND mango flavored? Or maybe they’re separate, but the flavors have fused because they’ve spent too much time in a sealed bag together, smashing into each other like participants in a heavy metal festival mosh pit.

The peach mango cereal is delicious and a great fruity combination, and my tongue can detect both when eating it, especially when I scoop it up with milk. However, it might be stronger when in milk because the orange coating on the cereal seems to run off into the liquid, making the milk quite fruity and tasty. However, I should mention that it’s not going to make you think of a sweet cereal like Froot Loops or Fruity Pebbles. It’s such a mild flavor that it’ll make eaters of the Cheerios Expanded Universe go, “Meh. Par for the course.” While those who are hoping for an intense blast of fruitiness will go, “Meh. Five over par for the course.”

Limited Edition Peach Mango Cheerios is a scrumptious summer cereal, and I’ll be a little sad when it fades away from shelves as the season comes to an end. Perhaps I should buy a box and preserve it in the chest freezer that’s currently sitting in my cart on the Best Buy website.

  1. I’m surprised you gave this such a high rating, Marvo. I love Cheerios and I wasn’t impressed at all with these. I didn’t taste either peach nor mango. It wasn’t awful, but it just tasted like Honey Nut Cheerios to me. I won’t buy another box before they’re gone. I much preferred the Fruity Cheerios or Team Cheerios — Fruity Cheerios being my number one.

    1. Agreed. I had high hopes for this cereal since Cheerios is one of the few cereals that uses only Oats and most their new releases are usuallypretty good, but the flavor was very muted to almost non-existent. Same with Peach Pepsi. Not sure why these food and beverage manufacturers go so light on the new flavor it’s supposed to be. It just ends up tasting like the regular version of the item.

      1. Yeah, I know I’m not the only one who didn’t taste peach-mango because I’ve read/watched other reviews with that complaint as well. I am so glad Fruity Cheerios are back, hopefully for good, because those are delicious.
