Fall Breakfast Cereal Reviews

As I mentioned in the Rejected Labor Day Drinks article, Labor Day is the unofficial end of Summer for most people.  For me, Fall begins when I find Pumpkin Pie Pop-Tarts.

And guess what I found yesterday!

You might notice that I found a couple other things that signal the arrival of Fall.  I could go on and on about how wonderful the Pumpkin Pie Pop-Tarts are, but I have done that enough already.  Instead, let's talk about the three cereals I happened to find.

Up first, let's talk about these Fruit Loops.  There really isn't anything special about them, unless you count the bones.

Yes, this cereal has marshmallow bones in it.  And it isn't just some skulls and generic bone shapes, they actually have a chest, pelvis, arms, legs, and skulls.  Enough to make a whole skeleton!

It reminds me of those Mr. Bones candies, and that's a good thing.

Rating: Two old black cats.

The Halloween Krave cereal has even less going for it than the Fruit Loops, but look at the color!

And call me crazy, but I like these better than regular Krave.  The regular Krave leaves me with a slight film in my mouth, and they never really seemed to have a lot of chocolate flavor.  These, however, leave no film, and have a great chocolate taste!

Last but not least,  we come to what is most likely to be the healthiest of these three cereals: Pumpkin Spice Frosted Mini Wheats  I really like Frosted Mini Wheats.  They are my go to cereal.  It seems to stick with me longer than other cereals.

That being said, I generally don't like the flavored variants.  I am a sucker for pumpkin spice stuff though, so I knew I had to try them.

I think I have something besides Pumpkin Pie Pop-Tarts to look forward to every Fall now!  Oh man, I love these things!  The pumpkin spice flavor doesn't just punch you in the taste buds, and that is very good.  Judging from the smell, I thought the flavor was going to be overpowering, but it is really balanced nicely with the standard Frosted Mini Wheat flavor.
