I saw an advertising for Honey Kix cereal about a month or so ago, and ever since went on an endless search for them. It took weeks and finally I came across a box of them.
The box has the official Kix logo on it, b ut immediately you will notice the burnt orange coloring, and the New logo swiped across the top of the box. In a way the coloring scheme used reminded me a lot of Honey Nut Cheerios.
At any rate, I got my box and did not wait till morning to try them out. I had Kix for dinner, and I was cool with that.
The first thing I noticed about Honey Kix is the new coloring they take on, and texture of the cereal in general. The Kix themselves seem to have honey swirls throughout each individual ball, you can clearly see the difference. It’s a semi off brown swirling, but not dark like cocoa.
The cereal also has a bit of a stickiness to them, but not to the point where they stick to your hands or fingers when you pick them up, but I was able to notice the difference easily as they do have a much more tacky feel to them than original Kix.
The flavor now is where we have a bit of an issue. Not that it is a bad thing though, just a little something that needs noting.
If you remember Kix growing up like I do, you probably noticed that in your adult years the original tastes much more cardboard like.
When I tasted Honey Kix, the first thing I noticed was how original these newbie Kix tasted. They tasted the way Kix tasted when I was a kid. A little more sugary, and that delicious authentic flavoring that they had years ago. It was as if the original ‘original’ had been brought back.
As far as the whole ‘honey’ aspect, I have to say that it was recognizable, but oh-so-subtle.
All in all they are delicious, they are the way I remember them, only they are labeled as new with honey. Personally I could care less, these Kix are delicious, and mom does not have to approve, as she will be hoarding these delights for herself.
