Off-Brand Cereal Reviews

The cereal companies have their brands pretty well established. Everybody knows the brand names, and the kids are familiar with how they taste. In order to save money on the kids’ cereals (which is in order to spend that money on my fancy granola (Berries and Dark Chocolate Love Crunch)), I’ll buy store brands when it makes sense.

The store brands are always cheaper, but it doesn’t always make sense to buy them. If the kids don’t eat them, then it was a waste of money to buy them.

Brand Names that are …

Copied Well

  • Frosted Mini Wheats
  • Honey Bunches of Oats
  • Special K Red Berries

Copied Ok

  • Frosted Flakes
  • Cocoa Pebbles
  • Instant Oatmeal

Copied Poorly

  • Honey Nut Cheerios
  • Life
  • Lucky Charms

Your store brands may not align with this assessment, because I don’t know which stores you frequent. Mine are Kroger and Meijer.

Beloved, do not imitate what is evil, but what is good. The one who does good is of God; the one who does evil has not seen God.
