Lately I’ve been looking for the Organic Frosted Mini-Wheats Kellogg’s makes, but I haven’t been able to find them. Going onto the Kellogg’s website, I took a look at the Mini-Wheats Brand Page, and, woe upon woes, can’t find the organic kind.
Instead, I see something marketed as Kellogg’s® Frosted Mini-Wheats®Blueberry Muffin, which looks totally vile with its “blueberry flavored crunchlets.” Seriously, that’s what they call it on the list of ingredients. And yes, there is a suspicious lack of blueberry involved in those crunchlets. And, in case you were wondering, it is not kosher-certified.
It appears that Kellogg’s has discontinued its organic line of cereals, as a search for “organic” turns up a bunch of MorningStar Farms products, and the listing for the cereal on Amazon.com shows it as unavailable.
So, for now, I will start my public outcry against the discontinuation of Kellogg’s Organic Frosted Mini-Wheats. Not only were they organic, but they were also vegan, lacking the gelatin ingredient in the frosting found in the original Kellogg’s version, as well as versions made by other manufacturers. Also, I’ll have to dig around for a substitute cereal. According to this blog post, Whole Foods’ store brand 365 makes a vegetarian version of the mini-wheats, so I’ll be going there tomorrow.
Earlier today, I bought a box of Kashi Autumn Wheat at the Krispy Kreme Publix on recommendation from a friend from work. There’s no layer of white sugar frosting, but there is sugar in the cereal, so I’ll let you all know how that goes. Normally, cereal is something I eat right after work to fulfill the hunger I get in the afternoon, or I’ll eat it before going to bed at night.
