Cereal Fail

Thursday, January 28th, 2010

Breakfast just hasn’t been the same lately. Our favorite cereal (and snack food), Purely O’s, has had a recipe change for the worse. It used to be nearly sugar-free and actually taste like oats (think less sweet and organic version of Cheerios), something I felt good giving Dash and Zella.
Now there is TRIPLE the sugar, plus molasses, and corn in the new Purely O’s recipe. And they didn’t even bother to let their customers know.

There is much discourse in the blogosphere about this very cereal. Lots of angry former customers wondering what a good replacement is for their favorite cereal. What can they give their kids to snack on? What can diabetics and people with corn allergies eat now? Anyone… ideas?

I’m really irritated about it, honestly. I’ve registered our complaint with the company and I’m hoping for the best. Maybe they’ll go back to the old formula. Kind of like how New Coke slowly faded away….
