Post Shredded Wheat with Real Strawberries is a new flavor of the classic whole wheat cereal. It has a severely tasty strawberry flavor, which likely means there is extra strawberry concentrate all over those gigantic slices of berry goodness.

Shredded Wheat with Real Strawberries is part of the Sensible Solution program. It’s big on fiber, whole grain, and protein but low on vitamins and minerals. Breaking down the numbers, there are 6 grams of fiber, 46 grams of total whole grain, and 5 grams of protein per 1-1/4 cup serving. The cereal offers 10% of daily recommended amounts of Thiamin, Niacin, and Zinc and 15% of Magnesium, but all other vitamins and minerals are less than 10% or not in the cereal at all. Don’t forget to take your big kid vitamin with this.

If you’re a fan of shredded wheat and strawberries you will enjoy this cereal. If you’ve never tried shredded wheat before I offer you the analogy of little woven pillows of wheat that sit quite heavily in your tummy but taste pretty yummy going down. Make sure to use lots of milk because a dry biscuit is a tough-to-swallow biscuit. But, too much milk and this cereal will turn into a bowl of paste as heavy as a small boulder, so play with your milk ratios a bit to find your perfect balance.

Taste: Severe berry goodness
Box opening: A little difficult
Bag rippage: No ripping
Bag slippage: Minimal slipping
Allergy alert: Contains wheat ingredients

  1. Wow, there is a blog for everything 😉 I was actually thinking about trying those… Were there strawberry chunks in it? What were they like texture-ally?

    I am terrified of ‘real fruit’ in cereal that I didn’t put there myself…

  2. Latitudinal cross-section cuts of the strawberry, about 1/8″ thick. Very tasty! I am textureally challenged but enjoyed this cereal, if that helps. :)

  3. That definitely helps, thanks!

    Texture is definitely my food weakness >.>

  7. Katharine, glad I could help!

    Cissa, I love the hat and shirt so I was happy to feature the hat, although I forgot to give yo credit. Sorry. EVERYONE, CISSA GAVE ME THE NAVY HAT. Hehehehe. 😀

    Mom, it’s good to be back online. It’s sooooo tasty! I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

  8. I LOVE Shredded Wheat! YAY for Shredded Wheat. I know I would love this cereal but I’m cutting out sugar, so now I’m so sad.

    Why do I have the feeling that Dawg would have hated this cereal?

  9. Bear Silber, sorry, your comment got stuck in moderation land. I will definitely check that out in the near future! I have about 8 cereals to review right now. 😀

    Lisa, that’s why I made that wise crack about “and that’s all I’m gonna say about that” at the beginning of the video. 😉

  10. Oooh, good to know!

    I love Strawberies and was very happy when Special K came out with Strawaberries in it.

    Good stuff!

    I really like Shredded Wheat with Real(freeze-dried?) Strawberries, but my last box had NO strawberries in it!

      Janet– That sounds like there was a problem at the packaging plant. I would contact the manufacturer and complain about the issue. I would hope they would give you a coupon for a free box at the very least.

    Post Shredded Wheat with strawberries is no longer produced by Post. Please call in and ask that they reproduce it. Post will respond to complaints that it’s been discontinued.

    I’d rate this a 10 on a scale of 1 to 10. I loved this cereal!
