I have always loved Frosted Mini Wheats and I recently bought a box, but was really disappointed. As soon as I added milk to my cereal and I noticed right away that the mini wheats got flat. They almost completely fell apart in the milk. I have no idea what happened. I will never buy these again. Super sad, as they were one of my favorite cereals.
Moldy cereal in the recent months I purchased two boxes of Kellogg’s cereal frosted Mini wheats. The first box when I poured a bowl of cereal I thought maybe it was the mill. Poured another one. It tasted like mold. I threw it away. Couple months later I bought another box thinking it was a fluke. Again a moldy taste. It was horrible. I threw it away. I am not buying Kellogg’s cereal ever again. This is horrible. I trust a product for years and now they’re failing.

We’ve been purchasing Mini Wheats for decades and have never experienced any issue. Recent box smelled/tasted like ammonia/chemical/metallic. Very difficult to accurately describe. Overwhelming with a sudden urge to vomit. We also checked the milk, bowl etc. Absolutely repulsed. “Tinny” Wheats will no longer be on our table.
I started eating a pop tart when I noticed a maggot crawling out of it. I will never eat another pop tart. It was a strawberry one. I usually get strawberry and or s’mores every time I go shopping. It’s the first that this has happened.
I bought a natural Kellogg's substitute cereal for something they usually add all sorts of toxins to. It was not bad. Then I saw on the box they had a promotion going to get a free red, white and blue mug or wine cooler with three receipts. I think the deadline was July 31st. I turned my three in at the end of June. They said my two receipts were not dated and were separated from the other one and I was simply told I did not meet the requirements. When I called again they found them in their archived section or someplace and said there was no date on the receipts therefore I could not receive the product but what I like a coupon. No thank you.
I returned the receipts all in time so that I would hopefully get my red, white and blue cooler around the 4th of July. Hence, I know that they were well within the date they should have been turned in. When I inquired again, even though they had the receipts, they could not find the dates, even though it was within the period required, and I got a horrible response finally from customer service saying we're sorry you don't agree with our requirements or something like that. Boy howdy, Way to make a customer really angry at you all over a $5 mug!
Contacted Kellogg's to report this choking incident in early Feb., 2022. Sent photos of the item and all of the information listed on the box of Raisin Bran that I was eating when this happened. Consumer Affairs (Philip) contacted me and said Kellogg's would send me forms to fill out so that I could be reimbursed for the medical expenses I incurred because of this incident. Two full weeks and no packets with forms. Calling them is a waste of time and it's clear at this point that they're hoping I just forget about this issue. I'm thinking of suing to get my medical and time off work to seek medical reimbursed.
I bought a few boxes last year 2021 and they were fine. Tasted like they normally do no issues. Then January of 2022 Walmart Grocery got a batch in, this was when there was production and supply issues so I bought two boxes from the same batch of cereal. There was something really very wrong here. Hard pebble, rock, glass type material in the Rice Krispies cereal. I couldn’t even suffer to eat it without breaking my teeth. My first guess was it wasn’t cooked or processed correctly and it was like chewing hard foreign material in the mouth. Was not edible or safe to eat really. Safe to say both boxes got tossed in the trash. Not to mention prices and inflation right now what a waste.
From reading other reviews Rice Krispies is having the same problem in many others cereal boxes. This isn’t a good sign. Kelloggs needs to bring back the quality control and product expectations we come to expect. There needs to be oversight. Availability could be better as I noticed frequent bare shelves. Covid, Inflation, and Productivity isn’t an excuse for any of it. None of the other companies far as I can tell have been having these types of things going on.
I love Apple Jacks and would love to have a 1990's box with just the orange. I have to pick the green ones out just to eat them. It changed the taste of the cinnamon. Everyone said they taste the same but I cannot taste no cinnamon with the green flavoring.
I have been eating Rice Krispies for over 60 years and Special K for quite a while, but in the last few years every box I have tried had hard, almost glassy particles that are uncomfortable to chew on. Last year (2021) I bit down on a chunk that wedged between two teeth and broke a filling. It seems like some change in their rice supply or processing results in these hard gritty pieces since other Kellogg's cereals (Frosted Flakes, Raisin Bran) that don't contain rice seem the same as ever. I keep trying Rice Krispies once in a while hoping for improvement, but so far I am disappointed every time.
I bought a family sized box of Pops Cereal. The first bowl I made had 2 wood chips. They were cooked with the cereal pieces because they are coated. My 2 year old just grabbed a piece of cereal from my bowl. Thank God it was one of the wood chips.
