Kellogg's Froot Loops and Apple Jacks cereals NOW with fiber!

Most moms want the best nutrition for their kids, and it starts off with a good healthy breakfast. Sometimes it is nice to let kids have a bit of sugar to their breakfast, and sugar cereal can be a treat. I didn't grow up with the sugar cereal, because my mom never bought it. I occasionally buy it for my kids, but due to not much nutritional value, I tend to keep them on the shelf. Being a Mom Tester with Mom Central, I get the opportunity to test and try new products. I was sent a box of Kellogg's Fruit Loops and three other boxes to test. Know what? Kellogg's cereal is now available with the option of FIBER. Fruit Loops and Apple Jacks are now available with 3 grams of fiber per serving! That is great! I love that, because fiber is one thing that kids and adults do not get enough of in their diet.
Kellogg's thought of a great solution to add fiber to the diet. With my taste-testing, and my kids testing, we have found that Fruit Loops without fiber and Fruit Loops with fiber are comparable in taste, texture, and looks. I think that both versions of the Fruit Loops both taste like sugar cereal, and it is kid-approved.
Kellogg's started putting the added fiber in with two kids' favorites: Apple Jacks and Fruit Loops cereals. These cereals are now available on store shelves. These cereals include ingredients such as whole-grain corn flour, whole-grain oat flour, oat fiber and soluble corn fiber. In addition, Kellogg Company plans to extend the added fiber benefits to their other cereal lines over the next year. Fruit Loops and Apple Jacks cereals have added fiber while maintaining the same great taste, making breakfast an easy place for kids to get the fiber they need without the battle.

Our family enjoyed these two new options of cereal from Kellogg's. I am happier with the fiber added bonus, too! We recommend these two options over the original Fruit Loops and Apple Jacks. Thanks Kellogg's!

I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Kellogg’s and received boxes of Fruit Loops and Apple Jacks and a gift certificate to thank me for taking the time to participate.

Hello I am wondering where I can buy older boxes of Froot Loops from before the fiber addition?

I ask because the new version has a flat texture and frankly tastes like garbage so I stopped buying it.
