Kelloggs Releases Pink Rice Crispies And People Are Divided


If you’re the kind of person who loves nothing more than polishing off a huge bowl of Rice Krispies, and then drinking all of the chocolatey milk out of the bottom like a huge, bitty chocolate milkshake – then this is the news for you.

From early next year, Rice Krispies will be available in a strawberry flavour. So now you’ll have a different kind of milkshake to slurp. How great is that?!

For the older readers among you, this will probably sound a little familiar. No, you’re not losing your mind. They were actually released back in the 1980s, but were discontinued after a while.

According to Delish.com, makers Kellogg’s said they were delivering one of fans’ top flavour preferences with a “simply, naturally inspired strawberry flavour”.

Of course, there is a catch as they are only available in the US at the moment, but if they prove popular enough you never know, they could make their way over.

Sadly, you can’t please everyone. And of course, there were a few negative Normans on the post.

One person commented: “Cut it out Strawberry!!! STOP infiltrating everything!!! Strawberry milk was gross…now they are trying to wreck Rice Krispies.”

Another wrote: “There used to be strawberry rice krispies. It was just freeze dried strawberries in the cereal and I enjoyed them back in 07 when they were around.”

They will be on sale for £3.12 ($3.99) for 326g, and £4.45 ($5.69) for 467g.
