Pumpkin Spice Frosted Flakes Are On Their Way To Your Grocery Store’s Shelves
The pumpkin spice craze continues!
Look around and you’ll see the first signs of autumn arriving. No, temperatures aren’t dipping and leaves aren’t falling from trees yet — but pumpkin spice-flavored products will start dominating shelves at your grocery store sooner than you expect.
The latest new pumpkin spice treat to be announced is Pumpkin Spice Frosted Flakes from Kellogg’s. The company has already experimented with Cinnamon and Chocolate Frosted Flakes, so it was only a matter of time before this happened.
In an email, Kellogg’s told Simplemost that Pumpkin Spice Frosted Flakes will be available nationwide starting in September and will only be available for a limited time.
The new cereal made its surprise debut online thanks to a New York grocery store. The Instagram account of one Met Foodmarket location showed off a box of them on May 30.
Just got a sneak peek box of the new fall flavor Frosted Flakes. @kelloggsus @kelloggsfrostedflakes #Pumpkin #ItsNeverTooEarly #SummerFirst #FrostedFlakes #Cereal #TheyreGrrrrreat #ItsOnLikeDonkeyKong #CerealKiller #Breakfast #NomNomNom #Munchies #FallFlavors #EatHappy #StayYoung #Kelloggs #DoesItAgain
In the photo, you can see the box is a sample size (notice the message in the bottom left corner).
Wondering what Pumpkin Spice Frosted Flakes will taste like? Kellogg’s described the cereal as having “a warm pumpkin spice frosting” that coats the typical corn flakes. The company also said the new variety “has caramelized pumpkin aromatics delivering brown sweet cinnamon and a touch of allspice and ginger.”
A couple days after Met Foodmarket showed off its sample, Instagram food writer Markie Devo also previewed the new cereal, saying he was so-so on the cereal itself but that the milk it left over was a perfect 10/10.
SPOILER ALERT!!! This is not a released cereal yet until August!! I was lucky enough to get my hands on a sample so here we go… This is Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes “Pumpkin Spice”, at 1st scent you get a strong pumpkin spice essence(yass), the taste(without milk) is very sweet with a hint of a pumpkin puree/cinnamon vibe.. however there is a spice after taste that leaves your mouth sizzling a bit.. (with milk)sugary pumpkin flavor, spice is very limited.. I am on the ropes with this one, not really feeling it as much as I expected and I love pumpkin spice(totally basic on the inside).. I give these a 6/10(oh no girl)and 10/10 for the cereal milk(crazy how that worked out)not something I would revisit🤷🏼♂️🎃🍁🥣.. These are due out late August of this year and sold in most major markets!! BTW pumpkin spice Cheerios beats this by 4 points on the cereal alone (yaaass)🐐.. Huge thank you to @metfood_nostrand_ave for this sample👍🏼.. #frostedflakespumpkinspice #frostedflakes #newceral #fatman #junkfood #foodreview #fitness #macros #cheatmeal #cheatsnack #snacks #candy #cake #iseesieats #exclusive #cereal #comingsoon #kellogs #f52grams #foodgasm #picoftheday #foodporn #nyeats #foodofny #brooklyn #yasssbiach
Devo also said “you get a strong pumpkin spice essence” as soon as you open the bag, which sounds like a win.
Will you be giving Pumpkin Spice Frosted Flakes a shot this fall — or do you think that flavor belongs only in your Starbucks lattes?
