The howling good taste of frute!
As a Halloween promotion, Target is selling the monster cereals. Count Chocula is probably the most famous of them, but I'm saving the best for last. This review will be for Frute Brute.
According to the box it's an artificially cherry flavor cereal with marshmallows, and the monster is a werewolf, who prefers this cereal instead over the taste of humans. Sounds reasonable to me. Can werewolves get cavities?
I'm not exactly a picky eater, and even though I can't claim there's a distinctive cherry flavor, it's a sugary cereal so it's still good. One weird thing though.
I have one critique. If the cereal has a werewolf on the box, why is the cereal ghost shaped? Why not wolf shaped? At any rate, the ghosts are sugary and tasty and the marshmallows are good too.
As you can hopefully see, the cereal leaves you with a nice flavored milk with a slight orange color. It also tasted good.
So if you don't have a problem with sugary artificially colored cereal, dig in, it's good. And if it makes any difference, sugar (at 9g) isn't the first ingredient, it's 3rd after Whole Grain Corn and Corn Meal (the marshmallows are 4th). It's also fortified with 13 vitamins and minerals meeting 6, 10 or 25% of the daily recommended value. So with a little denial you can almost convince yourself it's good for you.
The box also includes some trivia, including the Frute Brute's catch-phrase, which is the first line in this post.
