Strawberry Banana Berry Burst Cheerios

From General Mills
Reviewed by Mr Breakfast on 3/9/2004

Like corn flakes, Cheerios invites the addition of fresh fruit. Fresh bananas and/or strawberries make a good thing even better. But what's the result when the fruit is freeze-dried?

Quick and simple, this new cereal is okay. The pieces of freeze-dried fruit are smaller than in other new cereals doing the same thing. I recently reviewed Kellogg's "Corn Flakes With Real Bananas". My main beef with that cereal was that its freeze-dried banana pieces never fully absorbed the milk - leaving the pieces partial crunchy and un-banana-like. Thanks to Cheerios' smaller pieces, the fruit becomes more like what we're used to. In fact, the banana pieces were a little mushy. My only real complaint with this cereal is that the strawberries pieces are a little bit too tart.

This cereal is no replacement for Cheerios with fresh fruit. If you have the time and the fruit, that is the better option. If you're choosing between cereals with freeze-dried fruit, Strawberry Banana Berry Burst Cheerios is one of the better options.

$3.49 reflects the price of a 13.1 ounce box.

The price we paid: $3.49

My FAVORITE cereal. Devastated I can't find it. I ordered it by the crate because all 5 people in my house loved it...and food like that's hard to find! Just pulled that last box out of the deep freeze. :-(

Best cereal ever, Lack of sales were because they didn't give it a chance to get around. I would work for G.M. and sell this and make a ton of money. Bring it back and give it a chance to get out.

PLEASE listen to your customers' requests and BRING BACK the strawberry banana cereal. Like the others here, I've missed this cereal and am actually craving it!! I think it is truly one of the few that are UNIQUE of its kind. Instead, we now have Banana Nut, which, eh, is okaaaay, but this flavor is a dime a dozen, unlike the strawberry banana! It seems to me you should have given it more time to get a consumer base before yanking it off the market. PLEASE GIVE IT ANOTHER SHOT. . . IT'S WAY BETTER THAN BANANA NUT!!!!

I'm in Canada. Bought the cereal once and have never seen it again. It was really good and probably the best I've eaten. Bring it back General Foods.

I can't believe they discontinued this cereal it was the best cereal and it was the only kind I actually enjoyed every morning. Not too lazy to slice my own fruit but some of us have jobs and lives that restrict our time. This was a happy medium that lots of people enjoyed. BRING IT BACK

I have been looking for this product for 3 months. We bought it twice, loved it, went back for for more and there was none. It surprises me that General Mills would discontinue making a product that no other company is making but you would continue to make all of the other choices such as apple, honey or nutty that every company makes, even the generic companies make those choices and at a much cheaper price.

I loved this cereal and it was great for camping. The schools should carry it too. These fruits bought separately are hard to keep fresh so the cereal made life easier for me.
