Latest in Chocolate: Chocolate Frosted Flakes

Hi, Dear Sillies,
How are you?
I'm always thinking about you.
This time, my thoughts took me to...
Frosted Flakes Chocolate Breakfast Cereal - 10.2oz - Kellogg's - image 1 of 9

Admittedly, I didn't eat these for breakfast. I only sampled a scoopful at Costco. That's all it took. Didn't want to spend money on Kellogg's Frosted Flakes. The are not GGGGRREEAT! Don't do it, friends. I love the original. I love chocolate. (Duh.) But this combination is just wrong. I don't know what they use for chocolate flavoring but I don't think it's...chocolate. It hard to detect any real chocolate. Whatever it is, it drowns out the formerly loved cereal for me. I give Kellogg's Chocolate Frosted Flakes a 1 on a 1-10 scale (10 being GGGRRREEAT!). Why'd ya go and ruin a good thing, Kellogg's? Take 'em off the shelves. That'd be great.

Have you tried these? Given them to your kids? Dogs or cats? Let me know what you think.

Be well, and take care of your great selves, my dears.
I love ya.

  1. I can't imagine that being good even with good chocolate. Thanks for doing the hard work for us, Robyn.

    1. I opened my mouth to them with an open mind, Wilma. 'Twas a bad idea. Thank you and you're welcome. =)

  2. Probably wouldn't have tried them anyway. I loved Cocoa Puffs. But I OD'd on them when I was about 4 years old. I've avoided "chocolate" breakfast cereal ever since. Chocolates croissants are a different matter.

    1. I've always been cuckoo for cocoa puffs, Mitchell.
      Chocolate pancakes or croissants too.

    1. I'm glad you agree, Alex. I would've lost credibility if you hadn't. =)

  4. Sounds just wrong indeed. I'm sure the cat would eat them though, he has no taste.

    1. The cat would've been all over chocolate frosted flakes, or anything else.
      Thanks for agreeing.

  5. I'm old enough to remember when Kellogg's Frosted Flakes were called Sugar Frosted Flakes. But now the world is run by cowards who are afraid of giving anyone the wrong idea about anything.

    Some combinations may sound good, but they fail to deliver when push comes to shove. For instance, I love pizza. I love crab rangoons at Chinese restaurants. But a gourmet pizza shop near my home offered a "crab rangoon pizza," and I regret to say that I actually tried it.

    1. Yeah, they should bring "Sugar" back. We all know it's there. That's why we love it.

      Ugh - the thought of crab rangoon pizza, Silver, makes me queazy. I'm sorry it lives down to its name.

  6. Messing up with chocolate is a crime. Which warrants a severe punishment.

  7. I just can't stomach the idea of ANY brand of "chocolate" flavoured breakfast cereal. It just seems WRONG.

    1. I agree, Deb, with one exception: Cocoa Puffs. They did that right from the beginning and they don't try to mess with it. Or was that Rice Krispies which became Chocolate Flavored Rice Krispies? Yeah, probably.

      Delete
  8. Nope, I dont think I could stomach it.

  9. Is there anything nutritious about these? It seems a bit like putting lipstick on a ...Sarah Palin to make it possibly palatable, but not the kind of thing anyone would really want to kiss.

    1. Ha! Right!? I suppose the milk that's sugary chocolatey has a bit of protein. Most cereals are so bad for kids (and adults). I try to stick with oatmeal or low sugar granola.

      Be well, Jono.

  10. You don't like them?????? I call it 'chocolate frosted crack' cause I love it so much!!!!! And all that chocolate milk at the end!

    1. Ha. Well, I'm glad you love it, JoJo. I really don't. Granted I didn't give it much of a chance, but I'm good with that. I did think about all the chocolate milk at the end - that's why I'm cuckoo for cocoa puffs.

      Cheers.

    2. Do you remember 'back in the day' when cocoa puffs were dusted with a chocolate powder instead of that shiny chocolate coating all the cereals have these days? I liked them better back then for sure!

  11. No, definitely not for me! Any type of breakfast cereal with chocolate - real or imitation - would do somersaults in my stomach :) You are brave for trying this, Robyn. Taking one for the team... LOL

    1. Yay! Thanks for getting some Trumpeteering going on the East Coast, Joanne. I very much appreciate it.

  13. Maybe chocolate frosted flakes will go over well in hospitals. I've just returned and people there don't care what they're eating --solid food means home soon!

    1. Yeah, the bar is set low when it comes to hospital foods.
      I'm sorry you were there, Geo. Everything okay? I hope so. Sending love and healing thoughts.

    2. Surgeons got it all, Robyn. Home. Check "Trainrides". Ways to go.

    3. Thank goodness they got it all, Geo.
      My love and healing thoughts, dear friend.

  14. Thanks for taking one for the team and trying them for us, Robyn. I'm glad you didn't have to buy the whole box just to try them. :)

  15. Haven't tried them not a big chocolate person. I'm a Cheerios's gal from way back. But, I would never buy them for children. It sends a terrible message to kids about how to eat, in my opinion. Congrats on your book! I don't have any young one's to buy it for, but may go take a look myself. Since, I'm one who doesn't lean orange.

  16. I have tried them. Big disappointment. I'm not a fan of regular frosted flakes either, but I like chocolate and gave them a go.

    My problem with frosted flakes is pretty basic. Regular corn flakes, after being hand sweetened with sugar is much better (to me anyway).

    1. Yeah, I agree. Regular frosted flakes are overly sweet, right? It's rare that I say that about anything.

      Anyway, thanks for dropping by. I hope you're in good spirits, Pat.
