Nemo is staring at me from the box as I sit to write this Kellogg’s Finding Dory cereal review. His Mona Lisa smile might be the best thing about it…
It looks like the Finding Dory cereal has been made for the European market – the packaging contains no English in amongst the six languages on the box. Research required… To the internet Batman! And… the American market got a cereal filled with cute little colourful totally terrible for you on a Lucky Charms level freeze dried marshmallows! Nice!
So what about Europe, I hear you ask? It gets a repackaged multi-grain cereal with barely relevant shapes and absolutely ZERO happy little marshmallows. I mean, I’m sure the marshmallows themselves arn’t happy but they’d have definitely made me happy to have them.
As for the not really Finding Dory cereal? With a standard puffed corn type texture and a light sugar glaze, this is your basic cardboard flavoured cereal with a dash of barely-vanilla sugar. The crispness immediately gives way to that smushy sort of texture that melts away but leaves a little bit stuck in your teeth. It’s a combination of rice, oats and maize and it doesn’t taste healthy, or bad for you. It’s just a bit ‘blah’. Both flavour wise and shapes wise. Until I hit the internet I wondered what christmas trees and people had to do with Finding Dory! It’s good I wasn’t losing my mind though, as it turns out the answer is ‘nothing’.
