Fruit Loops Box

By Jordan Thompson
It’s scary how one box of cereal can define your whole breakfast existence! Kellogg’s Fruit Loops have been around since the early sixties unlike me who was an 80’s baby. Toucan Sam is one of the most recognizable character brands and also has a slogan “Follow Your Nose” that is hard to forget when you have been eating Fruit Loops for as long as I have. So what is it about this cereal brand that still has me all hot and heavy for them after all these years?

Fruit Loops

A good fruity cereal is like a good fruit, not too sweet, not too bitter and has a certain crunch when you bite into it. The flavors for the Original Fruit Loops were Strawberry, Lemon and Orange. The nose of Toucan Sam was also modeled off of the flavor in the cereal, but the tip of the nose was black, so I always thought that was the purple, but that wasn’t the case.

Many children and adults enjoy the sweetness of Fruit Loops everyday and have put together some really interesting recipes that you might like to check out. Here is one of my favorites.
