Banana Creme Frosted Flakes Cereal Review

Where the hell is Gwen Stefani when we need her? The first thing that comes to mind when I think Gwen Stefani is bananas. Yes, bananas. You know, her infamous line that says “It’s bananas, B-A-N-A-N-A-S!” If you have no idea what I am talking about, here you go. So, what the heck did Gwen Stefani even mean when she sang that infamous verse?

Let me hear you say, this shit is bananas, B-A-N-A-N-A-S!
This shit is bananas, B-A-N-A-N-A-S!
Again this shit is bananas, B-A-N-A-N-A-S!
This shit is bananas, B-A-N-A-N-A-S!

This shit is bananas, Gwen tells us, and we can only agree. But what shit is bananas? Since the songs release 14 years ago (crazy how time flies, right?!), millions have tried to interpret the song. What does it even mean? What is a Hollaback Girl? Even Wikipedia has no idea:

Because Stefani never disclosed the song title’s meaning, reviewers came up with various interpretations. Eric Greenwood of Drawer B called the song “moronic and embarrassingly tuneless. I’d quote the lyrics, but they’re so bad, I almost feel sorry for her. A 35-year-old woman singing about pom-poms and ‘talking shit’ in high school betrays such a delusional self-image that it’s hard not to be taken aback. And on top of that, The Neptunes’ beats are clunky and the production is senselessly bombastic.

All this is hilarious and this modern day masterpiece is open for interpretation. But clearly, Gwen Stefani was simply referring to the launch of new Banana Creme Frosted Flakes Cereal that would be taking place 14 years after the song was written!

Banana creme pie is one of my favorites — fresh bananas, fluffy custard filling, and sweet whipped cream, nestled in a flaky and buttery crust. UM YUM! You can tell I am obviously excited to try this new cereal from Kellogg’s. I pour myself a bowl and the sweet aroma of banana fills the air. It has a similar scent to the Laffy Taffy banana flavor. As soon as I try it, I am in in love and I instantly get what Gwen Stefani was trying to say. It’s BANANAS! Yup, this is clearly banana creme flavor! A prominent banana flavor is immediately noticeable, followed by the taste of the creamy whipped cream. The cornflakes themselves act like the crust of the banana creme pie in a way — so this cereal is the complete package.

The more I eat this cereal, the more I am convinced that Gwen Stefani was just looking into the future and hyping up the launch of this cereal. If you love banana anything, you’ll absolutely love this cereal. The banana flavor in this cereal very prominent and it stands out. Take it one step further by adding slices of banana to your cereal. Yum! Look for this cereal to hit shelves in January 2019.

About the author


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.
