Breaking News: Every Flavor of Fruit Loops Taste The Same?
Foodbeast – First things first. They’re spelled “Froot Loops,” not “Fruit Loops.” Second, the outrage. Honestly, is there no end to the high fructose corn syrup lies? It turns out the “fruit flavored” circles touted by Toucan S[c]am are actually just “froot-blend”-flavored.Yep, all those pretty ROYGBV dyes don’t mean diddly, since each color tastes exactly the same! Q&A site The Straight Dope (via Reddit) reports that, just as that blue tropical bird mascot hasn’t changed since the cereal’s creation in 1962, neither has Froot Loops’ flavor — that’s flavor, singular. According to Wikipedia, “The cereal pieces are ring-shaped (hence ‘loops’) and come in a variety of bright colors and a blend of fruit flavors (hence ‘froot’),” and not “fruit.”
I honestly don’t even know how to react to this story. Of course they taste different. Of course they’re spelled Fruit Loops. Froot isn’t even a real word. Listen I’m not JMac. I don’t believe everything I read on the Internet. You tell me that Fruit Loops taste the same I’m gonna do a taste test and figure this shit out myself.
