Sugar Free Alpha-Bits

Written By: Gary on November 14, 2005 6 Comments

Why would they do this?!? Sugar Free? And the box looks the same! That’s just mean!

So I was going to have a bowl of cereal as a little snack tonight and I was pretty disappointed. I don’t generally keep sugar around the house so I had to use powdered sugar. It actually worked pretty good, just don’t watch anything too funny when you eat it because if you laugh you might accidentally inhale some of the sugar…

Think dry cardboard-ish Cherrios, but still in cool letter shapes.

    Alpha-bits used to be my favorite cereal. Now you couldn’t pay me to buy it.

    Important news regarding Alpha-Bits! The good old sweetened version is BACK…at least temporarily. I just found a “Limited Edition” sweetened variety in a darker blue box at my local Target store. I bought a box, sampled a few, and it’s the classic sweet taste and crunch we all remember, at least IMO. The fact that those horrid no-sugar things are off the shelves all but proves they were the New Coke of “improved” cereals. May Post have sense enough to take the hint and permanently keep the classic sweetened version in production and FORGET this earlier mistake. You want to give your kid an unsweetened oat cereal…get Cheerios in the yellow box!

    Limited Edition Alpha-Bits

    So about 18 months ago I mentioned that Post removed all the sugar from Alpha-Bits cereal. Not only that, they removed all the flavor! They were awful!!! So someone e-mailed me last week about the new “Special Edition” dark blue box that was out. Here’…

    Post (the manufacturer) caved to pressure from whiny mothers who petitioned them to cut the sugar (and most of the taste) out of Alpha Bits. I guess those Moms are unable to control what their kids eat – so banning the sugar was the supposed solution.

    Its sad that Post caved to that pressure and left their long-term customers without the taste they enjoyed for many years.

    Since Post doesn’t want my business – I’ll shift to their competitor’s products.
