Food Review: Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes with Marshmallows


Alright guys. If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you have to give me some credit on this one. I saw Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes was coming out with marshmallows and I held off for so long. I believe they hit stores sometime in May 2020. I showed such restraint! I’m always swooping up the latest gimmick cereal and this one isn’t even that much of a gimmick. It’s just putting two sugary awesome things together and saying, “Have at it,” and I so wanted to! Nonetheless. I finally relented and picked up a family size box of it. Spoiler alert: Putting two sugary awesomeness things in your mouth (with two percent milk!) was shockingly delicious.

I’m not the first person to suggest this, but seriously, take Frosted Flakes and the best part of Lucky Charms (the marshmallows) and boom, here you go. It’s simply a no-brainer! And I should note, this isn’t like combining Kellogg’s Corn Flakes (which, to be fair, are good, too) and marshmallows. Those are rather plain and probably healthier flakes. No, this is the Frosted Flakes version of corn flakes, which means drowning them in sugar … reviving them … drowning them in sugar again … and then putting them into a box for my mouth one day.

If you can’t tell, I get really jazzed up about cereal. I mean, look at this:

I want to eat another bowl just looking at that again!

And the best part? You don’t have the Lucky Charms complaint where you’re wishing the marshmallow to bowl ratio was better because you have the sugariness of the Frosted Flakes! Again, it’s an undeniable win, folks. You can’t mess this up if you tried, Kellogg’s!

Plus, you know, if you’re into paying attention to what’s on the box of cereal you’re eating, there’s a decent message:

A bit strong, though, right? “… kids’ ability to be Tigers is under attack.” (Emphasis mine.)

And the side of the box promises fun Tony (the Tiger!) shapes, like sweet swirl and Tony the Tiger himself. To be honest, the latter looks more like a goldfish to me. Besides, when it comes to marshmallow shapes, they don’t look like much of anything besides imminent yumminess in my mouth.

Seriously, go get a box. I will admit, $3.99 feels steep for a box of cereal, although this is the family size (and I am the family!), but it’s worth it! No disappointment here. I’m looking forward to my next bowl, which could be later tonight. Because why not?! It’s gr-r-reat!

Seriously, that tiger is a goldfish.

  1. My favourite cereals are Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Cocoa Puffs, Fruity Pebbles, Reese’s Puffs, Cap’n Crunch, Honey Graham Crunch, and Life. I love making homemade cereal bars in the oven.
