Pillsbury Trix Toaster Strudel Review

Trix has made headlines this week when they announced that they’ll be bringing back the classic fruit shapes to their cereal soon! General Mills discontinued the fruit shapes all the way back in 2006, and although it was the same flavor, the cereal just wasn’t the same. Just in the last 18 months, Trix has seen more than 20,000 requests from people to bring back Trix in its original form. So, it’s safe to say that people absolutely love Trix, right? Right. Because Trix has even made its way to the freezer aisle in Toaster Strudel form!

As a 90s kid, Trix was one of my go-to cereals. It still is. Especially now that they finally brought back the classic fruit shapes. I also am a fan of Toaster Strudels, so I am hoping this is going to be the best of both worlds for me. I put a couple of these bad boys in my toaster and ice them up once they are done. The icing is bright pink. I’m not going to lie, I tried the icing before officially icing my Toaster Strudels. Sadly, it tasted nothing like Trix cereal. Absolutely nothing like it. It’s good — just not Trix. It tasted more like an artificial strawberry, followed by some raspberry and blueberry notes.

Now, I finally get to trying the Toaster Strudel with the icing. The pastry is filled with what appears to be a strawberry and blueberry filling. Strawberry on the outside and blueberry in the center. I was quite surprised with the filling. I was somewhat expecting an artificial tasting filling, but to my surprise, it tasted pretty authentic with no weird aftertaste. All in all, the pastry is delicious. It’s so clear to me that this pastry based around strawberry. Although blueberry is present, the strawberry flavor stands out and trumps the blueberry.

But ultimately, does it taste like Trix? Nope. Are they good? Yup! If you buy these, you’ll definitely enjoy them, but at the same time may be let down slightly because they aren’t Trix flavored. It’s legit a marketing ploy…they could’ve just sold these as strawberry or berry Toaster Strudels…but of course, Trix on the package equals more sales. Silly rabbit…TRICKS are for kids!

I steal my nieces’ Halloween candy and laugh about it, put whipped cream on vegetables, don’t trust food that isn’t in a package, and worship ice cream. Chips are my favorite snack and might just end up being my downfall. I would marry Flamin' Hot Cheetos if it was legal (and not weird). Born and raised near Detroit, I grew up eating delicious coney dogs, unique pizzas, and of course --- all the best snacks.
