Mini-Wheats: Unfrosted
From: Kellogg's
Introduced in 2007

This variety of Mini-Wheats cereal described itself as an "unfrosted whole grain wheat cereal" with "no sugar added." It roughly amounted to simple shredded wheat biscuits. The cereal was launched in October of 2007.

A Kellogg's press release from 2008 described it like this: "Mini-Wheats Unfrosted cereal allows consumers to enjoy the lightly toasted, whole-grain flavor of Mini-Wheats cereal with no added sugar."

The following description is from the back of a cereal box in 2008:

"Introducing the newest way to start your day with Mini-Wheats: Unfrosted! Every, crunchy bite-sized square of Mini-Wheats Unfrosted has the lightly toasted, whole-grain flavor you love. And now there is no added sugar - so you can decide just how sweet you want your breakfast to be. Add fresh berries, or enjoy each crunchy square right from the box.

"When you choose Mini-Wheats Unfrosted for breakfast, you'll get the important low-fat, high-fiber benefits of 100% whole grain wheat. And that's just what you need to banish those hunger pangs and stay focused through your morning activities.

"With a satisfying crunchiness that can be customized any way you like it, new Mini-Wheats Unfrosted is simply delicious."

Company Description: Kellogg's was originally founded as the Battle Creek Toasted Corn Flake Company in 1906. The company's founder Will Keith Kellogg is credited with inventing corn flakes along with his brother John Harvey Kellogg. The company was renamed the Kellogg Company in 1922...

Good stuff if you can find it in the stores. I can only find Post unfrosted Shredded Wheat but it is not quite as good tasting as the Kellogg's Shredded Wheat.

Can't find in stores and price online at Walmart and Jet.com up to $8.60 for a 18 ounce box! Totally too much for a box that sold for around $3.30 only about a month ago.

Finally found Kellogg's Unfrosted Mini-Wheats. I contacted Kellogg's... they replied and told me to check Busch's stores (Ann Arbor, Novi, Livonia, etc.) Sure enough, went to Buschs in Dexter, MI and purchased 3 boxes. Be aware of the use by date, since I did find a local store (not Busch's) that was selling Unfrosted Miniwheats past the use by date.

Couldn't find Kellogg's UNfrosted Mini-Wheats anywhere. Tried another brand and it was terrible. Wish I could find a local supplier near Chelsea, MI. Like others, I would rather use honey or maple syrup in a quantity suited to me.

Every Publix in my area simultaneously stopped carrying Unfrosted Mini-Wheats. It is a conspiracy!

Add my name to the lengthening list of people wanting NON-sugared Mini-wheats. Why produce them if they won't stock them?!

I really enjoy Unfrosted Mini-Wheats cereal and eat at least one bowl per day with local honey and raisins. Unfortunately, I have a very difficult time finding stores that stock this item. I usually buy several boxes when I do find it in stock. Now the Publix I usually shop at has stopped carrying it. One of the managers was very helpful but found out that the computer that keeps up with the stock turnaround did an "AR" (automatic removal) apparently because it was a slow moving item. They have put in a request to special order Unfrosted Mini-Wheats. I am having to eat other brands and am not satisfied with the choices.

Unfrosted Mini Wheats? Due to health problems, I am on a heart-healthy diet. Try finding the unfrosted variety of Mini Wheats cereal in Columbus,Ohio! Even when it can be found, it won't be in stock for long. Suddenly, the stores decide not to carry it. What they will carry are endless varieties of sugar coated cereal. Is it any wonder why we have rampant diabetes and overweight children?
