Just had some POPs cereal and they're much more orange than I remember. At first I thought that was sweet glaze glistening off the cereal but I was sorely mistaken. I think it's legitimately food coloring or like a spray tan to make them look good, but they are not! It even turned my milk orange!! Barely any sweetness anymore. It's probably cheaper that way. Massive disappointment.

Corn Pops used to be my favorite cereal when it was in the foil bag during the 80's and 90's. So, all I can say is... Corn Pops sucks now. No flavor, stale texture, hard kernels. Yuck. I buy them a couple of times a year hoping the recipe will change back. This was the last time. I'm literally returning the box to Kroger. I'd rather eat cardboard. Why did Kellogg's have to change a good thing? Cry. This generation changes everything that was once good. Cry.

Wow, what a disappointment. This used to be my favorite cereal. I was looking forward to the corn sweetness and got neither. Drab, dull, stale, and I thought it was just 'me' till I googled to find out if the recipe was changed and found these comments. Way to go Kellogg's, you murdered one of your long time favored products.

Longtime cereal addict here. Corn Pops used to be one of my childhood favorites. The last couple of boxes I've bought recently in 2018 seem to be bland. But even worse, some of the small pops in the box are hard as rocks, and would literally crack your tooth if you tried to chew them. I guess I'm never buying these again. Another one bites the dust, along with the supposedly "new & improved" Alpha Bits which I'm also never buying again :(

This cereal is almost tasteless now. It was also on the stale side.

Ugh, so I hadn't had this cereal for a really long time. Still, I remember exactly what Corn Pops, then Sugar Corn Pops tasted like. I recently got a box for my kids to try and I started to wonder if I was losing my sense of taste. Gone is any corn taste. The kernels are much smaller than they used to be, and randomly some of them are very hard, even in milk. I'm wondering if they started making it with feed/field corn. I was struggling to taste anything at all besides some sweetness... the only thing I could pick up was a hint of soap. I don't know what they did to Corn Pops but whatever they did, it isn't good.

I'd just bought a box last week; had one bowl and threw the box away. Zero flavor anymore. It was like eating those packing peanuts. Blech!

Kellogg's has given this cereal no taste because they literally removed the reason why we bought this once great cereal. They removed almost all the sweetness from the taste.

This cereal rated a 5 out of 5 until they changed from the foil bag to a waxed paper in 2012.

I'm very disappointed with this cereal now. They apparently reduced the sugar (molasses) content sometime in the last few years or so and the taste is just not as good as it used to be. I should have suspected something was wrong when I noticed the foil inner package had been replaced with standard plastic.

Umm I am pretty sure 'dewey33' either never ate it a few years ago (before they changed the flavor), or he is a Kellogg propagandist! I was very disappointed but would not rate it as "bad" per-say.

It was my favorite cereal but I suspect they changed the formula after they added fiber. When they first added fiber it had a reddish tinge but it still tasted good. Then, they changed the formula again to get rid of the red and that's when it didn't taste as good as before.

I used to love this cereal back in the 90s but something changed with them. They are more airy and chewy now. (myemptycanvasreviews.blogspot.com)

I love this cereal. I am eating it right now as my dog and cat are chasing each other. I eat these for breakfast, lunch, dinner and as a snack. People call me Corn Puff because that's all I eat. I even have a stuffed Corn Pop pillow that I won at an amusement park last summer!

Loved it as a kid. I bought a box recently and didn't like it anymore. It was too sweet and kind of plain. Did the recipe change? Or did my tastes change?

This was called "Kellogg's Sugar Corn Pops" in its early years. There was even a little jingle for it to introduce the Wild Bill Hickok show on early TV. Over time, the company must have seen the need to remove "sugar" from the cereal name.

I love Pops. It's my all-time favorite and I would die if they ever stopped making it.

The Canadian version of Corn Pops is very different than the US version, and its evident from the package. In Canada, the cereal is more spherical, rather than pebble-shaped, and crunchier, or harder, in texture.
