Berry Krispies


Kellogg’s Berry Krispies is a rice based cereal that tastes much like its parent cereal, Rice Krispies, with added natural and artificial flavors to produce a berry kick. The box shows a strawberry, blueberry, and blackberry but we tasted only the strawberry. Very tasty cereal that makes for very tasty leftover milk.

Berry Krispies per 1 cup serving contains 120 calories, 0 grams of fat, 2 grams of protein, and no cholesterol. It offers 25% recommended daily value of Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, and Folic Acid, and 30% of Iron. Total carbs per 1 cup is 27 grams with 9 grams being from sugar, a bit more than Rice Krispies that only has 4 grams of sugar per serving.

This Snap, Crackle, Pop cereal targets kids… or at least for Sponge Bob lovers, judging from the box we taste tested. But not for free — the Nickelodeon Sponge Bob read-o-meter digital bookmark/timer offered for FREE on the box requires in fine print that you pay with 4 Nickelodeon tokens or $1.99 with 1 token. Mmmmmhmmm. How about we stick one in the box, market it as a literacy tool, and call it a day? (This is why we can’t give this cereal a perfect score, but I do so love NYCWD‘s rants.)

Taste: Like plain Rice Krispies with strawberry, and the milk tastes like Strawberry Qwik
Box opening: Not difficult
Bag rippage: None!
Bag slippage: None!
Sog factor: The cereal itself stays “krispie” but the feeling you get lifting the cereal out of the bowl is sludgy like swamp water (yum!)
Allergy alert: None listed, but please check for yourself

  1. I am a purist. I must have my Rice Kirispies plain and ordinary, as the Lord intended.

  2. Great episode. I think that this should be the official format and you need to lose the “guest” title, hasn’t Poppy earned the host position by now? Come on already! :)

  3. NYC Watchdog says:

    Brad– Just the very idea of you being a purist in anything legal is relegated to the land of myths along with Sasquatch and Champ.

    Bear Silber– Yeah… the format has always been all over the place… because its not like we really plan it out… just go where the cereal takes us. And I do agree… I think it is long overdue that she be just a “host”.

  4. One cup? Seriously? That’s like a handful of cereal. That’s just wrong. And no fiber? It’s made from rice, how can it have no fiber?

    More importantly, I think you all need bigger bowls and matching “Cereal Wednesday” baseball caps.
