    5ce407d7f2f4790da10302bc-750-563.jpg Anyone try the Drumstick cereal yet? Not sure how long it's been out; I only just noticed it tonight. Almost pulled the trigger but opted for another (can't be buying two boxes of sweet cereal concurrently an' all).

    I want to know how legit to quit those cone pieces are.

    Cone pieces = store brand Golden Grahams.

    Chocolate pieces = store brand Cocoa Puffs (and name brand Cocoa Puffs are wack enough already)

    Vanilla pieces = vague, sweet pieces that could be vanilla but that'd cost too much to develop properly

    It's basically Gilded Graham Crackers, with some background flavor dancers. It isn't anything amazing, and depending on where you eat your cereal it won't be good enough to make you want to walk to get a second helping.

    If you're interested at all, I'd say grab it. I have been tempted to grab another box, especially since it will probably disappear in a few months.

    As for the mint - I'm not eating mint cereal. Mint Chocolate Chip is an absolute top echelon ice cream flavor, but I'm not messing with it in cereal.

    Also, I wanted a reminder of the cameos in the 2 Legit video. I was tempted to make comparisons between Kirby Puckett, Deion Sanders, David Robinson, and a few others. But I have forgotten for like 20 years that there was a mini-movie when this video premiered.



    Please enjoy the next 15 minutes.

    The mint one has no mint flavor and the regular one is just ok.

    One of my gripes in the past with most licensed cereals was the tiny box. Just cause you have Spider-Man, you give me 10 oz of cereal?

    Now, the flip side is true. I want to see what's up with the Toy Story and others, but it's this insane shipping container size. My daughters and I tried it, and it's weak. Normally, I give the rest to my dog as treats, but she isn't having it.

    You might think a dog refusing to eat a cereal is a bad sign, but who knows. She won't eat the Crispix my kids drop, so that just shows my dog has the terrible palate that would lead you to eat warm cat feces.

    Appreciate the in-depth rundown; definitely next on the list then. As for the mint, I want to agree with you but DRscottrun nailed up above why mint in cereal should maybe be greeted with indifference: Unless it's something like marshmallows, the taste would most likely be too bland to really notice.

    Then again nevermind lol. If it's solely mint...like that Thin Mints one from a few years back...I could see that turning someone off.

    Fruity Pebbles = distant 3rd in the sweet "fruit" cereal rankings. I remember them being so much better. Good thing his baby bro saves face for the fam by dominating the chocolate cereal market.

    First point : no
    Second point : yes

    I'd eat Pebbles maybe every day if they weren't so much work. I am too lazy to have to scrape the sides of the bowl like thirty times.

    Not sure about this take robb. I presume it's made with the same crap as Froot Loops, but somehow manages the neat trick of tasting even more artificial.

    Exactly. When are you going to list the negatives?

    Didn't realize the Ovechkin cereal has nuts. My hopes and dreams have been destroyed.

    I tried peanut butter pops today. Not good at all.

    Better than the other pop tart cereals

    @DRscottrun311 so is it basically ghetto Krave?

    Also that closeup picture is really off putting. Looks like two cereal pieces about to inexperienced high school cereal tongue attack each other.

    That is a fair comparison. I'm not crazy about Krave nor these pop tarts.

    I was into the double chocolate Krave for a while. Then stopped because I realized I didn't really want to keep buying it.

    Pocket cereal is always way better in theory.

    I finally opened the Peanut Butter Cocoa Pebbles last night and thought they were pretty tasty. Not the best, but not bad.
