Kölln Zauberfleks Honig

    If the video embedded above is not viewable, you can see it at these other fine video sharing sites: Vimeo, Viddler, and Metacafe.

This week’s cereal comes to us all the way from our friend Creature in Germany. It’s Kölln Zuberfleks Honig! The rough translation on that one is Honey Flavored Magic “Fleks”, which happen to be a flower shaped corn and oat nugget that tastes similar to Cap’n Crunch but with a lot less sugar.

As our friend Creature explains, Kölln Zuberfleks Honig is a cereal based on an educational kids show called “Die Sendung mit der Maus” (“The Show with the Mouse”) which follows the daily life adventures of a mouse and his elephant friend, and has been on television for over 40 years.

There is a mouse mask cut-out on the back of the box which kids cut out to wear on “smart excursions of discovery”.

NYCWD is freaked out by this mouse mask, but Poppy finds it charming.

And now for some nutrition information! Per 30 gram serving there are: 167 calories, 5 grams protein, 29 grams of total carbohydrates, 12 grams sugar, 3 grams fat, 4 mg cholesterol, allllmost 1 gram of fiber, 150 mg sodium, 20% daily phosphorus, and 9% daily magnesium.

The ingredients list is super short, so let’s list them all! Corn flour, oat flour, sugar, wheat starch, glucose syrup, honey, unhydrogenated vegetable fat, iodized salt, soy lecithin, and carotene for color.

Poppy deducted a bowl for the low nutritional value, while NYCWD deducted for the mask on the back, because he can. 😉

Taste: A less sweet Cap’n Crunch
Box opening: No trouble
Bag rippage: No rips!
Bag slippage: None
Sog factor: It sogged out on the edges only, the center remained crunchy!
Allergy alert: Wheat

    Yayyyyyyyyyyyy!
    I’m glad that you enjoyed this stuff. I wooooooould send you more of it if I could afford the shipping on a regular basis. <-<

    I wonder if Dawg would be creeped out even more if he knew that the Maus is a silent protagonist whose only sound is the unnaturally loud blinking of his eyelids…

    Funny how, no matter where one goes, it all seems to keep collapsing back into Cap'n Crunch… Which doesn't even exist over here!

    Wonderful review as as always, of course. It actually did turn out to be one of your most entertaining ones. :)

    PS: Slight site problem: The second embedded video doesn't seem to work at all. I assume that was a clip from "Die Sendung Mit Der Maus"?

  2. Well alrighty then. Now I know what to eat next time I’m in Germany. Hi Poppy! Hi Dawg!
