Pumpkin Spice Frosted Flakes Are Making Basic (And Proud) Girls’ Dreams Everywhere Come True

The pumpkin spice trend is not new to us. I mean, how many of your bank accounts suffered during Starbucks’ PSL season? Since then it feels like pumpkin spice has popped up everywhere. From Ghirardelli’s Pumpkin Spice Caramel Chocolate Squares to Pumpkin Spicemallows, it feels like basically every food now has its own pumpkin spice version. Well, hold onto your horses (or pumpkins?) because Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes now come in a pumpkin spice flavor!

As told to Today, these revamped frosted flakes are coated in pumpkin spice frosting and the pumpkin flavor mixes with the wonderful aromas of cinnamon, allspice and ginger. Sounds like the perfect companion for cold mornings during the upcoming holiday season.


SPOILER ALERT!!! This is not a released cereal yet until August!! I was lucky enough to get my hands on a sample so here we go… This is Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes “Pumpkin Spice”, at 1st scent you get a strong pumpkin spice essence(yass), the taste(without milk) is very sweet with a hint of a pumpkin puree/cinnamon vibe.. however there is a spice after taste that leaves your mouth sizzling a bit.. (with milk)sugary pumpkin flavor, spice is very limited.. I am on the ropes with this one, not really feeling it as much as I expected and I love pumpkin spice(totally basic on the inside).. I give these a 6/10(oh no girl)and 10/10 for the cereal milk(crazy how that worked out)not something I would revisit??‍♂️???.. These are due out late August of this year and sold in most major markets!! BTW pumpkin spice Cheerios beats this by 4 points on the cereal alone (yaaass)?.. Huge thank you to @metfood_nostrand_ave for this sample??.. #frostedflakespumpkinspice #frostedflakes #newceral #fatman #junkfood #foodreview #fitness #macros #cheatmeal #cheatsnack #snacks #candy #cake #iseesieats #exclusive #cereal #comingsoon #kellogs #f52grams #foodgasm #picoftheday #foodporn #nyeats #foodofny #brooklyn #yasssbiach

Although the cereal hasn’t hit stores yet, some food bloggers have still managed to get their hands on a box. Markie Devo rated it 10/10, describing the cereal as having a “strong pumpkin spice essence”  and giving off a “very sweet with a hint of pumpkin puree/cinnamon vibe.” Sounds promising to me!

Pumpkin Spice Frosted Flakes will join Pumpkin Spice Cheerios and Kellogg’s Special K Pumpkin Spice on shelves in September and can be bought for $4.29. Until then, we’ll just have to look for other ways to indulge in the Pumpkin Spice Life.
