      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      They'rrrreeeeeee Grrreat!

      I much prefer this cereal to regular cornflakes, I don't know if it's because they put more sugar on or what it is but they are a lot sweeter. These comes in small and large boxes, you can buy them from all large supermarkets. The box is made from thin cardboard which can easily be opened, and then folded or ripped to fit in your recycle bin. The plastic bag that holds the cereal inside cannot be recycled and has to be binned. So on to taste then. These are much sweeter than the regular cornflakes and I could enjoy these every day of the week. They don't get boring or dull, they actually taste alright without sugar and while they don't have chocolate in them, kids will enjoy this cereal too. They're not all the same size flakes in the bag, some are slightly deformed, some broken and most are bumpy and lumpy all over. This doesn't create a bad texture though and when you add milk its barely noticeable. The flakes do go soggy like regular cornflakes but this doesn't make them loose their sweet taste, in face it makes the milk slightly sweeter so you can drink it when you've finished your cereal. The flakes feel rough when dry and a little fragile; you can break them easily with just your fingers. I do find this cereal quite filling, just a little amount of cereal will do me compared to say, Krave cereal so a big box does go a long way. They fill me up very quickly and there's no need to fill an entire bowl with them, especially not if you're going to drink the milk! I wouldn't eat this cereal without milk as a snack, it's not nice. I recommend putting them in the microwave on 800w for 40 seconds to make them absorb milk a little better and get them warm. They do taste better, trust me. You can also make Frosties cakes with these following an online recipe, this is great fun with the kids. Overall this is a great cereal, it's sweet and the flakes are a lot nicer to eat than regular boring cornflakes. This is especially popular with kids as the TV adverts and the tiger are aimed at children, but adults can have it too; I certainly do. These are £2.68 in Asda and £2.69 everywhere else for a 750g box. This lasts us good couple of weeks and like I said it's filling so a little goes a long way.

        Disadvantages

        I purchase the large packs as find this saves a few pennies.

        KELLOGG'S FROSTIES. Theyre Great....... I kg of Best Value Cereals Pack. Kellogg's Frosties have been around for ages, anything made by Kellogg's is usually good value for money, and the pack I purchased is a large one kgrams box full. It has an easy to open pull open flap at the top of the box and this particular box has Tony the Tiger clearly smiling at you on the front. What also attracted me to this box was a promotional offer clearly marked on the front of their box. Win a year of family fun. After reading it is a good offer, you get a 2 for 1 ticket voucher on the side of the packet which entitles you to buy a full paying adults ticket and you get one free, to places such as Alton Towers, Thorpe Park, Madame Tousards, Sea Life plus many more well known attractions. Plus there are five hundred annual passes to be won. Having promotions like this on a packet makes me more tempted to buy the product because I have a large family and saving the price of a day out ticket is always a welcomed thing for me. Each 30gram serving contains : Calories 113 thats 6 percent. Sugars 11gs thats 12 percent. fat 0.2gs thats 1 percent. Saturates 0.03gs thats 1 percent. Of your guidline daily amounts. The grams are the amount of calories per one bowl full. The percentage is the amount of your daily calorie allowance per one bowl full. Ingredients are :Maize. Sugar and Barley Malt Flavouring. Calcium Carbonate. Salt. Niacin. Iron. Vitamin B6. Riboflavin B2. Thiamin B1. Folic acid. and vitamin B12. Kelloggs has a guarentee. it is committed to providing quality products and does welcome any enquiries you may have. There is an address that you can write to if you have any problems at all. You must always in the event of an enquiry quote the quality codes on the top of the packet. There are approximately 33 servings per packet. The Box and the carboard are widely recycled. They are really crunchy, and sugary to the taste, you simply add milk to them, you do not need to add sugar they have little crunchy bits on them they are quite similiar to a cornflake but for the fact that they appear to be a bit more crispy and are certainly well sugary. My little grandaughters love a bowl of these for breakfast. I think that they are also great to keep in the cupboard for a snack at any time of the day, with some nice chilled milk poured on them. I also think that they are great to add to a bowl full of melted chocolate and stir and then place into cake cases and leave to set in the fridge, they make great crispy cakes, i usually add a glace cherry on the top before they set just to look pleasing to the eye. I dont like the cheaper versions of cereals at all, the one thing I wont skimp on is my breakfast cereals, as Kelloggs are a real winner in my home. Thanks for reading and rating my reviews.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          An enjoyable quickie rather than a long term relationship.

          I was in Sainsbury's today and wanted to treat my wife, so I bought her a pack of these. 500g for only 99p. I know it was very generous of me, but never let it be said that I don't know how to show a girl a good time. We have changed our cereal buying habits lately and find it much better to buy the smaller packets when they are on offer. There are just the two of us and if we allow ourselves to be persuaded to buy the BOGOF offers and such like on the larger sizes, we invariably end up throwing away stuff because it is out of code or we just get fed up eating it. I noticed that they have changed the packaging since last I looked. The familiar tiger, Tony, is still prominently featured albeit without the catch phrase for which he is famed. Although the look of the packet has changed, I can confirm that the taste remains as I always remember it. It's probably 5 years or more since I last tasted them and in that time I have opted to do without sugar on my cereal so in sampling these, I did find them most awfully sweet, but nevertheless rather moreish, it has to be said. A quick check reveals that in every 100g of product there are 37g of sugar. A dentist's delight if ever there was one! Apparently one serving of these will provide me with high percentages of my daily needs of 4 x B Vitamins, B1 and B2 as well as B6 and B12. There are also lots of other bits and bobs in there to make them tasty These are suitable for you vegetablists and vegan people and, Interestingly, they are also halal and kosher certified. There are 113 calories in a bowl of Frosties but we have buckets for cereal bowls so that's quite a lot really. I tend to favour Muesli in the mornings but we both sometimes snack on branded cereals in the evenings. It was good to taste these nice crunchy maize based Frosties but when chewed, they tend to form an amalgam that takes stubborn refuge in my fillings, so they will remain an occasional purchase only in our house, I think. After all, if I buy her more than one packet, she will be deeply suspicious of me. You women! What are you like! Now, about that adjective? I didn't think it would be possible to complete this review without mentioning that they're great. Doh!

            Cornflakes, with added grrrrrrrr

            I must admit that I'm a big cereal fan in general. I'll have it for breakfast, lunch or dinner, several times a day, no problem. And Kellogg's Frosties are definitely one of my favourites. I have quite a sweet tooth, so when I eat normal cornflakes, I find myself having to add extra sugar to improve the taste. This isn't necessary with Frosties. They are essentially cornflakes with a sugar coating, which makes them much more enjoyable. I recommend you eat them straight after pouring the milk on, as then you can appreciate the crispness of the frosted flakes, which will become soggy after a while. The marketing of this product is aimed very much towards kids, with Tony the Tiger being the face of the product. But this doesn't mean adults can't enjoy it too. The packaging itself is very colourful with a bold blue background, along with the bright orange of the tiger character. A great breakfast cereal or snack for other times of the day. They truly are grrrrrrrreat.

            They're Great

            Frosties are basically cornflakes which are frosted or coated with sugar, you can buy cheaper own label brands but the Kellogg's variety I feel are definitely the best. When taken out of the box they smell great and they make a lovely sound when poured in to a bowl. I like the taste of these so much that in the past when I have had no milk I have eaten them dry from the box like a packet of crisps but undoubtedly they are at their best when some type of milk is added. Breakfast is such an important meal and cereals like this because they are sweet will often appeal to children to make sure they start the day in the best way but this is also the case with adults when they want something quick and tasty. I will often eat cereals like this any time of day and night though as they make such a good snack. Despite the famous brand name the price is not too bad, a 500g box costing roughly £1.76 at Tesco but I can easily eat two bowls at a time and if I know there is a box in the house it probably wouldn't last much beyond a couple of days if that but this is a testament to how good they taste. A serving which is about 30g contains 113 calories and 11g of sugar but a very low amount of fat; this does not however take in to consideration what milk you add though I gather. The sugar content seems a little high but if they clean their teeth properly and your children get proper exercise then I can't imagine it would be too much of a problem. A wonderful tasting cereal to help start the day properly for adults and children alike.

            A treasure for the whole family

            Frosties is probably the biggest selling cereal and longest running cereal there is. I remember when I was a kid that was all we really ate and it was like a never ending box, but as I got older I realized that the reason it seemed so never ending is because my parents use to buy it a hell of a lot so that we would never be without cereal, and the reason it was frosties was simple, it was the house favorite. When I started to purchase the cereal for my self (for when I have cereal) I realized how pricey it is, I get the 750grams box and it will last for maybe a week and a half maybe 2 weeks, but the cereal is very sentimental to me, also I enjoy the taste. Sometimes late in the evening when I'm in a mood for a good snack I'll take my frosties and sit on the sofa and just eat it dry right out of the box. This cereal is very much aimed at kids but it's just as nice for us adults who are big kids at heart, with Tony the tiger as the icon of the cereal telling us "There Grrrrrrreat", with the tiger holding the bowl with the sparkling frosties, they look so appealing and something about things that sparkle seems to keep kids (and sometimes women) enthralled, this cereal is a must have. The packaging is a deep blue box with "Kelloggs Frosties" at the top and Tony the Tiger holding the bowl with 1 paw underneath the writing, the top right holds a small nutrition guideline of a daily amount which is: each 30gram serving contains: Calories=113 sugars=11g fat=0.2g 0.03g salt 0.3g But lets be honest it's all about the Tiger and the tiger is probably one of the most famous food icons there is. When you open the top of the box you find another plastic bag in in the box that holds the Frosties inside. When you break this thick (and quite tough) plastic bag the aroma of the cereal hits you a lot harder than other cereals would, as you take your first mouthful of the cereal with the milk added the first thing you relies is that it is a lot sweeter than you initially reliesd but I don't think its too sweet, the nutrition part does say that it's got a lot of sugar in the box but it doesn't taste like a lot, it just tastes sweeter than all the other sweet cereals out there. The flakes are a light crispy crunch, as you bite down onto them a sweet taste is released into your mouth, but don't get me wrong it don't taste like pure sugar but it is sweet. Nutrition information*************Vitamins Per 100 Grams Protein=4.5g ******************Thiamin (B1)=1.2mg Carbohydrates=87g**************Riboflavin (B2)=1.3mg Of which sugars=37g*************Niacin=14.9mg Of which starch=50**************Vitamin B6=1.7mg Fat=0.6g**********************Folic acid=166ug Of which saturates=0.1g**********Vitamin B12=0.83ug Minerals Calcium=456mg****************Fibre=2g Iron=8mg********************Sodium=0.45g ****************************Salt=1.15g you can pick up this cereal from your nearest supermarket around the same price, This Kelloggs Frosties 750g box costs around £2.25. just remember that when you are finished with the box for the day fold over the plastic bag or get a bag clip to stop the flakes from drying out otherwise this cereal will taste horrible. Final thoughts I fully recommend this cereal for the people who have a little bit of a sweet tooth, its been a favorite cereal of mine and I am not about to change that.

              good taste but shouldn't be eaten everyday

              Kellogg's Frosties are a cereal product consisting of flakes of corn in a sugar coating. They have remained consistently popular ever since their introduction in 1952 and the range now includes 500 gram, 750 gram and 1 kg boxes as well as Frosties cereal bars. Expect to pay around £1.80 for 500 grams and £1.70 for 6 cereal bars. Kellogg's Frosties come in a distinctive large blue coloured rectangular box. The majority of the front is taken up with a picture of Tony the tiger (who has been used as the Frosties mascot ever since their introduction). The kellogg's logo can also be seen, together with the word 'Frosties' written in white. Frosties should be stored in a cool dry place (once opened the inner plastic lining can be folded over to keep the air out) and should keep for several months. Per 100 grams (which is rather more than an average bowlful) Frosties contain 371 calories, 37 grams of sugar and 0.6 grams of fat (of which 0.1 is saturated). Frosties aren't the most unhealthy of breakfasts but are very high in sugar so probably shouldn't be eaten every day. Frosties are delicious with cold milk, but only if eaten quickly. The sugar coating makes them very sweet, while the corn adds a crispness, nuttiness and crunch which is very satisfying. However, once they have been in the bowl for a couple of minutes they go soggy and also lose a lot of their sweetness which seems to drain into the milk. I would therefore strongly recommend eating these as soon as they have been served.

              Disadvantages

              Great breakfast cereal for kids aswell as adults!

              Frosties are one of my favourite cereals, I don't buy them often as I find they are expensive and a box only lasts a week, so we usually buy supermarkets own brand cereals. But as an occasional treat, we sometimes go for a leading brand product such as Kellogg's. I always choose frosties, I have loved them since I was little. Frosties is a cereal, mainly aimed at children but they can be enjoyed at any age. The box is royal blue with a picture of a tiger on the front which everyone would recognise if they saw it, to be the tiger off the frosties adverts. They are basically like cornflakes, but with sugar on them. I personally think cornflakes are a bit tasteless and always have to add sugar on them for some taste, so why not buy them with the sugar already added for you! I think they have a bit too much sugar on them really, and if you were on a diet you would be better off buying cornflakes so you could control the amount of sugar on them. These kelloggs frosties cost around £1.70 for a 500g box, compared the supermarkets own brands which they usually call frosted flakes and cost around £1 a box, these are very expensive. You can also get them in a 750g box costing around £2.25 and a 1kg box which costs just over £3! A 500g box usually lasts us a week. They come in the usual plastic bag inside which you have to make sure you fold over to keep them fresh and stop them drying out. This cereal I very crunchy and very filling which is good for breakfast, it doesn't leave me hungry after an hour like some lighter cereals do. It fills me up enough until lunch. They are very sweet, due to all the sugar so I don't have a huge bowl of these. Per 100g there is 371 calories, so they are not good for you! Not great if your on a diet, and not a healthy start really to the day eating all that sugar, but healthy cereals are so bland and boring, I love these! I highly recommend these kelloggs frosties, they taste gorgeous and fill you up, I just wish they were on offer more or weren't as expensive and I would buy them more often!

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                Too sickly for me, sorry.

                I am worried that I am wading into controversy here, as I notice that everyone has rated Frosties really highly on this website, presumably because these people buy them a lot and enjoy them. Problem is, I can't stand them, but for some reason cannot escape them! I tried Frosties as a child after seeing the adverts with Tony the Tiger telling us how Grrrreeeat they are. Remember the animation of the sparkly Frosties in the bowl? They looked magical. I couldn't hide my disappointment when I actually tried them, as the sugar crusted cornflakes were much too sweet for me, and I have got a sweet tooth! The reason I can't escape them is because they are always included in those variety cereal packs that you buy on holiday! My kids tried them, but also found them too sweet, (amazingly, since these guy live on Haribos) so they inevitably end up left till last, mouldering away on my cupboard shelf, unwanted and unloved. Not even the garden birds will eat them! Unluckily for me, a well meaning friend of mine gave me a huge box of Frosties for the kids. I hadn't the heart to say no, as it was a really kind thought, but they are sitting in my cupboard and I don't know what the hell to do with them. Any ideas anyone? It is a 750g box! For those who do not know what frosties are, they are basically Kelloggs cornflakes, crusted with sugar. Not just a light dusting here, I mean it is CRUSTED on! I really want to like them, but I can't see how that much sugar can be good for anyone! They come in a dark blue box with Tony the Tiger on the front holding a bowl of Frosties, which are sparkling with little stars! The nutritional info is on the front of the box per 30g serving: Cal 111 Sugar 11g Fat 0.2g Saturates 0.03g Salt 0.3g As you can see, the sugar makes up more than one third of the serving. I watched a TV programme last week that showed young kids having to have their teeth removed in hospital, and it was really shocking! On the plus side, the frosties are low in fat and are fortified with vitamins! The back of the box has a big advert for the cereal and milk bar version of the cereal. Again, it is marketed squarely at kids. I'm sorry if my review has offended any die hard Frostie fans. I hope you respect my opinion, and if any of you want a big box of Frosties, you are welcome!

                  very tasty but do be aware of the sugar in them

                  I never used to like frosties as a child, as I remember them being just normal corn flakes but coated in far too much sugar, it was like eating out of the sugar bowl!! But recently I can't seem to get enough of them! I have also found that they are just as tasty as a snack but without the milk while sat on the sofa watching television! They are great for sweet toothed kids who struggle to eat breakfast in the morning, as it is more like eating a dessert for breakfast rather than a cereal. Even so, having read the nutritional information on the side of the box, they do contain a quarter of your daily reccomended intake of sugar for the day, so do be careful, especially on the portion sizes you give as that is only in a 30g bowl! I have also found that they are very good value for money as a large box of them has lasted me around two weeks, having quite a big bowlful for breakfast everyday which is unlike other cereals which usually last me less than a week and are usually more expensive.

                    They do taste great

                    When it comes to breakfast cereals one of the most popular are Kellog's Frosties, which are hugely popular with sweet toothed kids. Headed by their mascot Tony The Tiger, Frosties have been around for decades and have remained one of the staple cereals on the supermarket shelves, but what are "Frosties"? Coming in a mainly purple packet which features Tony, a bowl of cereal with milk and an ice blue "FROSTIES" product name (as well as the red "Kellog's"). Inside the box is a plastic bag which contains all the cereal, which are effectively sugar coated flakes of corn (or sugared Corn Flakes). They come in various sized packs, from the small 25g boxes (contained in the variety packs) to the 2KG packs that should last a family a week or two. Although it's advised that they should be eaten with milk (like most cereals) Frosties can very easily be eaten "dry",but more about that later. The flakes themselves look like flakes of golden corn covered in a white glaze of sugar, very similar to Cornflakes but for the dull white glazing. They are brittle when dry and can easily be smashed up into little pieces almost by accident. When their milked over them they go slightly soft and soggy but still have a crunchy texture in your mouth when you bite in to them. To explain them as anything other than sweet and delightful is difficult, they taste a lot like Cornflakes but with an excessive amount of sugar on them and are really easy to eat. Though of course some people want to be different and want to eat them dry, and when it comes to Frosties you can't blame them. If you want to do this you do lose out on the health benefits of the milk and will likely get funny looks from those around you, but it's genuinely an enjoy experience, they are worryingly sweet and almost addictive as a dry "snack" food. It's sometimes hard to imagine why they've not tried to sell it as a "sweet" in the sweet shop style of product "Kellog's Sweet Corn" type thing. Overall the cereal are one of the most pleasing for kids who will love the sweet taste and as a result will woof down the cereal. Though you may well see them shoving their hands in the box and grabbing a handful of the dry cereal. Though not the cheapest cereal on the market it is one of the nicest and this will result in it being eaten which is always a good thing. Crunchy and lovely tasting, this is a classic that will live on.

                    Overall a great breakfast cereal

                    I am not a major cereal lover, however I seem to always have this product in my cupboard. I remember as a child, always having Frosties in the house and they haven't changed at all since then... not even the packaging, Frosties are sugar coated frosted flakes of corn. The product comes in a blue box, with a picture of the cartoon Tiger on the front holding a bowl of Frosties. Everything you need to know is included on the packaging, the product usually has something such as mini puzzles on the box too, to keep your little cubs entertained whilst they eat breakfast. A great thing about this product is that there is no need to add any more sugar as the Frosties are sweet enough. This is obviously better for you in general and obviously lowers your calorie intake. Nutritional Information per 259 serving with 125ml of semi-skimmed milk Energy 646 kJ Calories 152 Carbohydrate 28g Fat 2.5g Fibre 0.5g Sodium 0.2g Salt 0.5g Vitamins included in this product (added with the milk) include Thiamin (B1), Riboflavin (B2), Niacin, Vitamin B6, Folic Acid and Vitamin B12. I think this is one of the few cereals I would actually eat. I would have to say that Kelloggs is one of my favourite brands (for cereal) every one of their products is always good quality. I like to leave my Frosties for a bit so they go all soggy and the milk goes sweet. If done like this the flakes just melt in your mouth and they leave a pleasentaftertaste. If you eat them straight away they are nice and crunchy. It's a very simple cereal but does the job perfectly and most kids seem to enjoy them as much as adults. Ingredients include Maize, Sugar, Barley Malt Flavouring, Salt, Calcium Carbonate, Glucose-Fructose Syrup and the vitamins as previously stated. This product does contain Barley and may contain traces of peanut. I think this is a very filling cereal which is suitable for all the family, it's a quick and easy breakfast or a simple snack after school etc. You can buy Frosties form most retailers but the prices can vary depending on the retailer, this product is usually on offer in most stores so it is worth checking around. On average the product retails for approximately £2.00-£2.20 for 500g they are also available in 25g in the Kelloggs multi packs.

                      Advantages

                      Disadvantages

                      go for the cheap non brand

                      Frosties and tony the tiger have been part of Kellogs team for many years and i think they will continue for many more as the popularity of this cereal seems never ending. Frosties are just like cornflakes which have been coated in sugar and like many foodstuffs and cereals there are cheaper own brand version available in many super markets. For example a KG of kellogs frosties may cost you around £2.50 where as the super markets own brand may cost you around £1.70. So does the brand name frosties warrant the extra money? In my opinion it doesnt. If you put down a bowl of Kellogs Frosties and the supermarkets own brand it would be hard to tell the difference between them. In fact it has often been claimed that the cereal is made in the same factories. Another point about this cereal is that it is very unhealthy, the sugar coating is bad for the teeth and is not the most healthy start to the day. However one thing that can be said about this cereal is that they taste, as tony the tiger would say, GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRREAT!

                        Also great for making chocolate frosties cakes with.

                        In our house the only person that really likes to eat breakfast cereal is me. I not only eat cereal for breakfast but often for lunch and supper too. My husband and three kids don't really like to eat cereal but out of all the cereals available the one they all like is Kellogs Frosties, in fact it is the only cereal my husband will eat. I also like Frosties but will only eat them every now and again. Last year I started doing the 'downshift challenge' with all of the breakfast cereals I buy and with lots of varieties I simply did not like the cheaper version. With Frosties though I did quite like Tesco's own brand and since then have replaced Kellog's Frosties with these. However whenever I see Kellog's Frosties on special offer I will always buy these and after not eating them for a while I really prefer the Kellog's Frosties. Therefore I have come to the conclusion that although Tesco Frosties are nice enough they just do not taste as nice as Kellog's Frosties. You can buy Frosties from all supermarkets and they are easily recognisable with a big picture of Tony the tiger on. There have been many adverts on over the years with the tiger on and his catchphrase 'they're grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrreat'. I think it is good when products are marketed this way with the same recognisable animal, especially when the children can recognise them too. Kellog's Frosties come in either a 500g box or a 750g box. As alwasy it works out better value if you buy the larger box. I'm not sure of the prices everywhere but in Tesco a 500g box costs £1.96 and a 750g box costs £2.37. Frosties are described on the box as "sugar frosted flakes of corn", they are like cornflakes but already coated in sugar. They are so much nicer than cornflakes though. Frosties are really sweet to eat and I like the fact that you don't have to put sugar on to make them taste nice because I always seem to put far too much sugar on cereal. Frosties are also really crunchy, I don't like to put that much milk on them because I like them to stay nice and crunchy. In fact I like to eat them without milk on too, I'm always nibbling on them when I'm getting a bowl ready for my kids. When it comes to nutritional information it states a 30g serving contains: 111 calories 11g sugars 0.2g fat 0.3g salt As I've said before on reviews of cereals I think a 30g serving is ridiculously small and I would be surprised if anybody ate such a small amount. I tend not to take too much notice of the nutritional information of cereal because it doesn't seem to differ from cereal to cereal. Overall I think Kellog's Frosties are great. Kellog's is a good brand that makes good cereal and although I tend to buy Tesco's own brand frosties to save a little, it is Kellog's ones that I love and think are the best.

                        Perhaps worth a try...

                        I'm not really a breakfast person, as I never really feel like eating much in the morning, and so what I have for breakfast usually varies quite a lot. However, I have to admit that cereal is one of the easiest things to eat as well as to prepare in the morning: Nice and simple; bowl, cereal, milk (or other accompaniment), spoon and go! I try and steer clear of cereals with too much sugar in them, and would normally go for original corn flakes, but they don't really taste great without sugar! And if I'm going to add my own sugar, maybe I might as well buy these Frosties instead? Kellogg's are a very well established cereal manufacturer, and with a famous name, many people trust them automatically. Well, they certainly taste very nice and are just a nice and simple, easy to eat breakfast. Not fancy, but they do the job very well. But what about what you're actually eating? Ingredients (750g box): Maize, sugar, barley, malt flavouring, salt, calcium carbonate, niacin, iron, vitamin B6, riboflavin (B2), thiamine (B1), folic acid, vitamin B 12. Nutritional values (per 30g serving with 125ml of semi-skimmed milk): Energy - 170 Kcal Protein - 6g Carbohydrate - 32g (of which sugars; 17g and starch; 15g) Fat - 2.5g (of which saturates; 1.5g) Fibre - 0.6g Sodium - 0.2g Salt - 0.5g Vitamin Thiamin (B1) - 0.4mg (29% RAD) Riboflavin (B2) - 0.7mg (44% RDA) Niacin - 4.7mg (26% RDA) B6 - 0.6mg (29% RDA) Folic Acid - 29% of RDA B12 - 76% of RDA Per 30g serving: 111 calories (6% of adult's guideline amount) 11g sugars (12%) 0.2g fat (<1%) 0.03g Saturates (<1%) 0.3g salt (6%) This box is pretty huge, and I imagine that Kellogg's Frosties are a popular choice for families with children as this is an easy and tasty breakfast which offers vitamin B12 and Fibre amongst other things and Tony the Tiger on the front of the box with his own bowl of Frosties is clearly designed to appeal to both younger and older audiences. They are quite reasonably priced, on average around £2.50, but if you shop around can be found for as little as £1.19 That said, the sugar content does seem quite high and so I will probably stick to plain Kellogg's Corn Flakes in future, although they don't taste as good! Finally, Kellogg's, on many of their cereals, often run special offers; recently we had a chance to claim a free box of Corn Flakes with a free bottle of milk, or a free trial with Love Film with a £10 shopping voucher amongst other options, so it's certainly worth looking out for these!
