Mini Wheats

I am so bummed! I just found out that Kellogg's Organic Frosted Mini Wheats have been discontinued. I knew I hadn't seen them at the store for awhile, but I thought maybe just the store I regularly go to stopped carrying them. Frosted Mini Wheats were one of my favorite cereals growing up and I stopped eating them years ago because they contain gelatin. The organic ones didn't have gelatin and they tasted awesome. I am now on the hunt for a gelatin-free frosted wheat cereal, but I reckon I won't find much.

I did stumble upon one of their new products though - UNFROSTED Mini Wheats. They appear to be vegan, and you can always add some of your own sweetness to it if you need some.

yeah, i hate it when that sort of stuff happens. i just eat the unfrosted and add fruit to it.

This seems to be particular to frosted shredded wheat... the Trader Joe's version has gelatin as well. Major bummer as my kids would really like it...

why bother with boxed cereals in the first place? also, if you're broke, buy some oatmeal in bulk (and support your local co-op) and you can add fruit and other goodies to that. it's good for you.

I would, but I can only eat oatmeal once in awhile. The texture of it makes me gag like crazy.

We eat Farina quite frequently - when you get it on sale it is quite cheap. 2 TBS makes a single serving - so a box lasts a long time. However, as Allicia said, sometimes you just have to eat cereal. Kids like it & it adds variety. And when you get the right kinds (ie, not loaded with sugar) it's a good breakfast. Just sucks that something that should be inherently vegan (or vegetarian at least) sometimes is not.

They sell frosted mini wheats without gelatin at Whole Foods.

You're not really broke if you still have a computer and can pay to use it.
