BREAKING: Tony the Tiger has been charged with attempted murder…
The last thing I think when I eat Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes is “needs more sugar,” but here we are with Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes with Marshmallows. The package says 12g of sugar per serving, but I’m calling bullshit. There must be at least 100g of sugar per spoonful, and I couldn’t be more excited to die. I’ve scientifically proven that all great cereals improve with cereal marshmallows, i.e. I proved it once with Marshmallow Fruity Pebbles.
The best breakfast cereals are the ones that make you feel like a five year old, eating sugar cereal while watching The Price is Right in your pajamas as you feign sickness to stay home from school.
If your parents were the responsible type that didn’t buy any of the fattening cereals, buy Mom and Dad some Kellogg’s Corn Flakes for their birthdays and ask them how it feels.
And speaking of Kellogg’s Corn Flakes, the corn cereal in Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes with Marshmallows tastes exactly like Corn Flakes that were coated in the perfect amount of sugar: way too much. Sugar is the second ingredient behind corn, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. The initial taste is pure sugar, but it fades to a more generic corn cereal in its unadulterated state once you chew it a bit. The flakes are thin yet sturdy with an immensely satisfying crunch. Personally I’ve always like Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes, but your starting point may differ from mine.
The marshmallows in Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes with Marshmallows are thick discs of sugar that operate as expected. For a reference point on shape and size, think Smarties but thicker. They’re stiff like all good cereal marshmallows, but soften and melt away quickly once you begin to chew. I don’t think they’re quite as flavorful as Lucky Charms marshmallows, and that’s kind of disappointing.
Eating Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes with Marshmallows in its dry state, the marshmallows become rather difficult to distinguish. You can definitely tell they’re there because they provide a delightful textural contrast as you chew. The marshmallows become soft while the flakes retain some crunch. But their ability to affect the flavor will depend largely on how many you scoop up.
Here’s your Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes Pro Tip: A little milk goes a long way. If you use too much and completely submerge your flakes, the sweetness washes away from the cereal pieces and now resides in the milk. The flakes will taste just like Corn Flakes again, but at least your cereal milk will be on point. Regarding milk usage, do something I’ve never done with a woman – just tease them and get them a little wet. The flakes will retain most of their signature sweetness, and the marshmallows will prove their value by filling in any gaps. You now have sweet cereal AND sweet milk.
A little one dimensional? Perhaps, but I like Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes with Marshmallows because I’m still five years old. Whatever… all cereals are better with marshmallows and you can’t convince me otherwise.
