I’m happy to see lately that a lot of different cereal companies are coming out with new flavors. As much as I love my old classic cereal flavors, it is nice to walk into the store and see that they added something new. This past year Pebbles cereal in particular added a cupcake flavor which is simply delicious. Like desert for breakfast; although it may not be for everyone, its a really delicious flavorful cereal.
They did not stop there though, oh no. This past week while browsing quickly through the cereal isle, a box of new cereal caught my attention immediately. It’s the big bold NEW logo added to boxes that usually grab my attention, and this time that logo was attached to a box of Marshmallow Pebbles.
The box fits really well to the other Pebbles flavored cereals. This box however is a nice blue color with Fred Flinstone sitting at the bottom right of the box. On the box you also see a picture of the cereal giving you an idea of what to expect to see inside of the box.
Now this particular cereal again may no be for everyone, as it is a sweeter more sugary cereal containing marshmallows. Being a fan of Lucky Charms, and cereals with Marshmallows, there was no way I was passing up this newbie.
At home, when I got around to pouring myself a bowl, I was pretty impressed with the overall appearance of the cereal. What you have are small pebbles that are thicker than other Pebbles cereals. They are an off white cream color, and I believe are doused in a marshmallow flavoring of sorts.
Scattered throughout these pebbles are loads and loads and loads of marshmallows. At first I thought this marshmallow overload would be a bit too much for the pallet to handle, but I figured if it was too much for me, I’d pass it on to my niece and nephew, who handle loads of sugary delights like this in mass quantity without an issue.
However after taking a bite of Marshmallow Pebbles, I knew there was no way I was parting with this one. The flavor is delicious, and the marshmallow’s quickly become saturated so they are not to hard or crunchy.
All in all what we have here is a new box of Pebbles with a delicious flavor that is not too over the top and sugar drenches, which is surprising, because in your bowl, when you pour it, it looks like a sugary overload. It however is mild, and delicious. Kids and adults alike would enjoy this one. Like I said though, if you are not a fan of marshmallows, you may not find this one all that appealing; for the rest of us though, yum, yum, yum!
