Strawberry Rice Krispies Cereal Review
If your New Year’s Resolution for 2019 is to eat more cereal, you’re in luck. Not only are we seeing Banana Creme Frosted Flakes and Honey Nut Frosted Flakes hit shelves in early 2019, but Kellogg’s is also spoiling us with new Strawberry Rice Krispies cereal! The launch of new Strawberry Rice Krispies cereal marks the first new flavor in over 10 years from the Rice Krispies line. While browsing Twitter, I noticed some chick named Jessica apparently is in desperate need of this cereal…
I’ve been seeing Strawberry Rice Krispies all over Instagram and I want to try them so bad! 🍓🥣

Sorry, Jessica… you’re gonna have to wait. January 2019 is when you’ll be able to get these!
Some guy named Brad says he is also excited for this cereal…
Not a big cereal guy, but would lean IN on this.

And lastly, some guy named Steve says there’s no chance he’ll try these.
One of my favorite cereals as a kid! But just the plain ones with a ton of sugar. No chance I’d try this one. OUT

I guess it’s time to find out if Jessica and Brad are gonna get their hopes up, or of Steve is going to miss out. According to Kellogg’s, the strawberry flavor is ‘simple and naturally inspired’ (the ingredient list does list “natural flavor”). I snack on some before trying a bowl and am confused… I don’t really pick up on any strawberry flavor. I then pour myself a bowl and I notice the milk immediately turn pink. How cool!
The strawberry flavor really shines with milk. It went from regular Rice Krispies cereal to strawberry! A delightful strawberry flavor is immediately picked up on. It’s not that artificial strawberry flavor either. The natural strawberry flavor bleeds into the milk and the entire bowl of cereal is just delicious. Once you’re done with the cereal, you’ve got a delicious bowl of strawberry milk! I do with the strawberry flavor was a bit more prominent, however, I do know they did focus on making the strawberry aspect naturally inspired, so going a little bolder on the flavor may have made it somewhat artificial tasting.
Sorry, Steve. You said there was no chance of you trying this one and you were “OUT”. I hope you change your mind after reading this review. All in all, this cereal is delicious. Pour yourself a bowl and slice up a few strawberries to enjoy with it!
