When it comes to candy, gummies are probably my favorite. There’s just something about the combination of sugary chewiness that I really love. Weirdly enough, the new Froot Loops gummies are not only surprisingly (or perhaps not-so surprisingly) delicious, but they also taste freakishly like Kelloggs’ actual breakfast cereal. How is this possible?!
- Froot Loops are a childhood classic. While I don’t eat cereal too much as an adult, I fondly remember sitting down in front of the TV to watch Saturday morning cartoons with a bowl of them when I was a kid. They’re still just as popular with kids today, it seems, and turning Froot Loops into gummies is a way to bring them back to adult palates as well.
- The gummies are made by Galerie Candy. Instagrammer @i_need_a_snack_ was lucky enough to get a hold of a couple of packs of the new sweet and shared them with their followers to get us all excited for their release later this year. The red, orange, green, blue, and purple loops bring a slightly tart edge to the super-sweet flavors and it seems like they’re going to be a total hit.
- Sadly, Froot Loops gummies won’t be out until Halloween. That seems like a long time to wait for something so delicious, but that’s when they’ll be out. When they do hit stores, you can expect to pay about $3.99 for a 6.72oz bag, which contains 16 snack size bags. Given that that breaks down to about 25 cents per bag, that’s a pretty good deal and would make a great addition to kids’ treat bags for the holiday!
- This is definitely something to look forward to. Froot Loops gummies aren’t the first time Kellogg’s has brought the cereal to other products. There have been Froot Loops ice pops available over the summer and even Pop Tarts has gotten in on the fun. These are just another product worth adding to the franchise.
