I thought it tasted different also. Not as good.

My suspicions were confirmed... the formula for this cereal changed. It used to be my favorite, not it tastes like a dry sponge.

Original Honeycomb is back at WalMart. My daughter and I have eaten half a box. Thank you Post. You listened to us.

The new Honey-Comb cereal is not good. As a kid it was one of my favorites and it was one of my daughter's favorites also. She can't stand it and neither can I. Post changed this along with Alpha-Bits and both were a lot better before the changes. If you're listening Post, bring back the old cereals.

Has anyone heard if they are bringing back the original formula? I do not see anything online or on the Post website. I hope this was not false information.

I was unaware that they had made a new Honey-Comb cereal and unknowingly picked up a box of it last week. It's horrible! It tastes like cardboard! I have eaten this cereal since I was a kid, I am now 54 years old and will have to find another cereal now. Ugh.

This is great news. I am sure the sales of the new one have plummeted. I can't wait.

Just heard from the people at Post and come this May/June Honeycomb will come in both NEW and OLD formulas. Look for a Blue-Retro box in stores soon. Why they will keep the new recipe is beyond me though. It is just nasty!

The new recipe is just nasty. The people at Post who did this should be fired.

It changed. There is a coating on the cereal. I liked it better the old way.

Their new recipe will make you want to eat the cardboard box it comes in instead of the cereal.

Made the mistake of buying a box last week, not knowing that they had change the recipe/texture to an artificial, hollow-corn tasting disappointment. I have sworn off Honeycomb forever now.

What did they do to my Honeycombs? I haven't eaten them since I bought the new box and looked at all the stores for the old box. Hopefully they will change them back to what they were.

I hope Post looks at General Mills and how they are bringing back the original Trix. They need to bring back the oat based Honeycomb. The corn based is terrible. They changed the flavor years ago and it was a bust also. Seems like they would have learned.

I don't like the new taste... too much like corn. Why would they change something that was good and make it corny.

Had more than half a box of the 'new' Honeycomb that I had to throw out. It was really bad. Please bring back the original. I bought some for my daughter. She told me they changed the flavor. I tried it and it was not good. Instead of an oat flavor, it is now a corn flavor. It is horrible. Not sure what Post was thinking. Bring back the old version.

Went and got my Honey Combs like I usually do every week for the last year... box had a different face on it. Didn't think nothing of it. Brought my dry cereal to work like always, awful! No taste, the texture doesn't look the same. Why do companies change things that aren't broken? Might be trying to save money, don't know, but it will cost in the end when people stop buying. Guess I'm back to finding something else.

Take a bow, Post, for keeping this cereal as delicious as it ever was! (Still trying to figure out the ideal milk-to-cereal ratio for this one...)

The only thing good about the cereal was when they had the mini-license plates in the boxes.

One of my favorites as a kid. Still enjoy it today, just not as much as then after having doubts as to whether actual honey was used as a sweetener. On a side note (since no other poster has mentioned it - so I will), the Honeycomb Hideout TV ads of the 70's were referenced in an episode of Futurama.

Regarding cereal premiums: I hoped for the '69 Cougar. Got the Marauder, instead. Didn't like the cereal enough to try my luck again.

Loved it as a child in the 70's & 80's. The taste today doesn't compare.

Another story that was listened to on the Honey Comb Ghost Story Record was "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow". I had that record as a kid; and enjoyed the yummy tastes of the cereal while watching the commercials in the 70s. Those were the good old days! Thank you for bringing back the memories.

This cereal was reminiscent of Styrofoam peanuts with a hint of honey. No thanks. (myemptycanvasreviews.blogspot.com)

Come to the Honeycomb Hideout! Great cereal and those commercials from the 70's and early 80's were the best.

I loved it as a child. I have not had it in years, I don't think I would enjoy it. If they had a true honey sweetened version, I may like it. My taste buds are way different now. Anyways, like CerealKiller said, I also DID eat a whole box once, in well one sitting. The only cereal I eat now, is non processed oats. BORING! hahah ;)

I was in a Honeycomb commercial filmed in Arizona in 1965 and would love to see it now as well as show it to my children! mcphersonanne@cox.net

I loved the commercials with the Honeycomb Kids in the Clubhouse. Please show more of them.
