Honey-Comb
From: Post
Introduced in 1965

  • In the 1980's Honey-Comb Cereal was promoted with a jingle that went, "Honeycomb's big. Yeah, yeah, yeah. It's not small. No, no, no. Honeycomb's got... a big, big taste... a big, big crunch... for a big, big bite!"

Honeycomb was described on boxes as a "sweet crisp corn cereal." In the summer of 2010, Post Cereals' website described it like this: "Post Honeycomb is a sweetened corn and oat cereal in a unique BIG honeycomb shape. Its honey-sweet taste has had kids of all ages loving Honeycomb for almost 30 years."

When this cereal first came out, it was described on the box like this:

"Honeycomb is a new kind of cereal for the whole family. It's made from golden corn and sweetened with pure natural honey and sugar. It's fun-to-eat, light in the bite and crisp as can be! And it floats on milk to stay crisp! Enjoy this delicious cereal for breakfast - or any time you are in the mood for a different kind of snack. You won't want to add sugar. Honeycomb is just naturally sweet enough for everyone."

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.
