Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Kellogg's Coco Pops Hot Choc microwaveable oat cereal Confirmed sighting: Kellogg's Coco Pops Hot Choc microwaveable oat cereal
Posted: 10:42 Wed 03-Nov-2004. Price: Around 1.80/ 7 sachets. Location: Tesco's, Goodmayes, Essex. Sub-flavours: Winnie the Pooh Hunny B's Yummy Honey Oats; Fruit 'n Fibre Baked Apple and Berry Oats. Nutritional unusualness: See below.
"Farah" reports: Went out shopping yesterday and came across the above cereals. At first I thought "WoW", but on closer inspection of the box I realised that these cereals were only "Ready Brek" with added Chocolate or Honey flavours! Don't we already have Chocolate flavour Ready Brek? Couldn't we just get the original flavour of RB and add cocoa or honey?? To me this just seemed like a marketing idea aimed towards young kids - by placing cartoons and the similar on the boxes. With all the hype about eating a good breakfast, parents will easily be fooled by this box - thinking it provides a nutritional breakfast. Let's see what you think...

...Food for thought here from first-time spotter "Farah" - though it's unlikely that this is just "Chocolate flavour Ready Brek" inside, as Ready Brek products (eg their new Seriously Oaty) are made by Kellogg's rivals Weetabix. And to be honest, the sugar content of all the flavoured microwave porridges (eg Quaker/ PepsiCo's Quaker Oatso Simple Smoothies) is a Bran Flakes-ish 20-30g per 100g (which comes to about 15g per average 30g serving, though some of that is due to the sugar in milk), apart from the unflavoured basic oats versions, which are only about 2 or 3g sugar per 100g. And in other sludgy brown developments, Alpro have launched a Soya Chocolate Custard (99p for 525g) version of the product previously reviewed here as "resembling chocolate milk in every respect you can possibly imagine" - if you happened to be drinking it inside a computer-generated "The Matrix" universe.

Comment: I was a little disappointed that they're not more chocolatey/sugary. Guess I'll have to stick to pop tarts to get my morning fix ;)

Comment: ...or you could just have chocolate. My favourite breakfast food is cold curry. Maybe that could be a face off, Breakfast Foods- Snack Or Traditional? Or something like that.
