Kellogg's Frosted Flakes are better known as Frosties. I'm sure most of us remember the advert for Frosties that featured the cartoon tiger Caled Tony. He would bound about and state that Frosties were "Grrreeeeat". Don't know if i'd quite say that, but they are rather nice.
I bought a box of these from Asda last month. They usually cost around the £2 mark for a 500g box, but Asda was selling different Kellogg's cereals for £1 a box, so I thought i'd have 1.
The box is just a normal cardboard box, more rectangular and the same shape as other cereal boxes. The colour is dark blue and has Tony the Tiger on the front in orange and red colouring holding a bowl of the cereal.
So what is the cereal? Basically Corn Flakes with sugar stuck to them. They are golden flakes of cereal with kind of crystalised sugar on them. The sugar stays on the flakes even when they are wet with milk, and although they are sweet, they aren't overly sweet.
Nutritional information per 30g without milk
Son not too bad a cereal, apart from the sugars are a bit high compared to plain cereal. But this is more tasty than Bran Flakes and so on.
I do like a bowl of cereal at night, and since being on my diet again, then I alternate between my favourites - Coco Pops and Ricicles, and these, which although aren't quite my favourite choice, they are a nice sweet tasting change.
Kellogg's are one of the most well known cereal producers in the U.K and I know that they are the first company to pop into my head when I think of cereals. They have been around for over 100 years making products from simple cornflakes right up to the kids favourite of cocoa pops. I found that this product lived up to all the standards I expect from Kellogg's,
The box is blue with a picture of the Kellogg's frosties mascot; Tony the Tiger on it! He also does all the catchphrases and slogans which are shown on the adverts for these products. Inside the box the frosted flakes are stored in a plastic bag to help keep them fresh and the box has a little tab to help reseal it. There is also all the nutritional information on the back of the box.
Maize, Sugar, Barley Malt Flavouring, Salt, Calcium Carbonate, Glucose-Fructose Syrup, Niacin, Iron, Vitamin B6, Riboflavin (B2), Thiamin (B1), Folic Acid, Vitamin B12.
So as you can see they contain quite a few vitamins that are very necessary for your diet and because they are made of maize they release energy slowly throughout the days which helps to keep you going.
One bowl of Kellogg's Frosted Flakes contains:
111 Calories (6% GDA)
11g of Sugar (12% GDA)
0.2g of Fat (0% GDA)
0.3g of Salt (6% GDA)
The only thing you really need to worry about with these is the sugar levels, because they are frosted they contain quite a lot of sugar. However if you suffer from allergies beware because this product contains: Barley ingredients and may contain peanuts or other nuts. They are however suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
The cornflakes are very crunchy and have a lovely flavour when you eat them on their own. Unlike plain cornflakes these do not need to have milk added to them as they don't taste plain and boring. The fact that they're frosted means that they are covered in sugar which makes them taste great.
Overall a fantastic breakfast food and much more appealling than normal plain cornflakes. Plus they are available in most supermarkets at quite a low price.
