Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Kellogg's Froot Loops Confirmed sighting: Kellogg's Froot Loops
Posted: 20:48 Sun 24-Jun-2012. Price: 1.99 (ish). Location: Premier Stores across the UK; Wallsend, North Tyneside. Nutritional unusualness: 117kcal per 30g serving inclusive of semi-skimmed milk.
This pic is of some of the different US varieties available in Cybercandy Covent Garden but, as "Kris Stobbs" reports: Remember these? Sold on various websites for up to 8 quid a box? Well, rejoice as Froot Loops are back in the UK - Premier Stores in the North East have them (prices from 1.34 to 2.49).

Kellogg's say that Waitrose, ASDA and Tesco will also stock them from now until the end of August. It'll be tomorrow before I tickle my tastebuds with the fruity flavours - it's a limited-time deal to test the market as they have had a lot of requests to bring these back.

..."Kris" does seem slightly well-informed about the marketing plans for this (maybe via a news story?), but "Sam" also claims to have seen them in Waitrose, Newmarket, adding: "Whilst browsing the aisles today I found one lone box of Froot Loops with UK box, nutritional information etc. Could it be test marketing? Watch this space."

Kellogg's haven't made the same "back by public demand" claims for their All-Bran Yoghurty Flakes (which seem similar to 2004's Bran Flakes Yoghurty, and are pictured here with Nestle Coco Orange Shreddies). While, in other North American imports, thanks to Mr Simon for this double-helping of Hershey's Cookies'n'Creme Drops, and Wonka Chewy Spree; "No Candy Shell - No Mess", announce the Hershey's, presumably because "Tastes like biscuit pieces in candlewax" would sound even less appealing.

Comment: I could never quite see what all the fuss is about with Froot Loops. About a year or two ago my local Poundworld got some in, so I took the opportunity to try them out - personally I thought they tasted like shit.

Comment: Spotted a big bag of small Tootsie Rolls, they were the disgusting original flavor. I am one of the few who like Hershey's yet I can't stand these.

Also had a big box of Florida's nature nuggets, looked like new packets on the side not the same as in Tesco.

Also 8 small bars of Hershey's are only 50p.

Comment: They taste disgusting. If your expecting the tasty, fruity cereal from America, then you'll be sadly disappointed. The box has half as many colours and the cereal tastes like cardboard sprayed with Febreeze.

Comment: Dan, how do you know what Febreeze tastes like?

Comment: Froot Loops spotted and purchased in aldi old Trafford today,£1.40 ish. Colours are not the same as American packets, only green, purple and yellow/orange; no actual fruit flavour, more like slightly bigger cheerios with some sort of indistinguishable flavouring but theyre nice, ill finish the packet.
