Coco Pops. White Chocolate edition.
I recently while in the course of doing the grocery shopping I saw a packet of Coco Pops that stood out, like a diamond in a sea of cubic zirconia. The boxes cardboard, crisp, recycled and perfectly creased invited me to come closer.
I instantly fell beguiled by it"s siren song. Primal urges took hold. I salivated at the thought of the masterful combination of White Chocolate with the Coco Pops universe would unite the disparate world's of Choclat le Blanc aficionado's and "Poppies'. I am unsure what causes this excitement as it's actually a ...rather dull prospect. Which brings me to the actual cereal. How was it you may ask. Well I guess you have already as you decided to read this and it"s irrelevant as I've already written this so do you really want to know? Ok. Very average. I found them to lack flavour. The White Chocolate flavour lacked the depth I would normally seek in a Choclat le Blanc product. I want to be swept away in electric passion like Milky Bar does so effortlessly. I seek the creamy lushness only Choclat le Blanc has and sadly I found the Coco Pops lacking in execution.

Hello everyone. So i found myself craving coco pops this morning ( i’m 6 and a half months pregnant ). But not just craving!! Like i would sell my car for a bowl!! My husband went to buy some offcourse but they don’t taste the same anymore. Its heavy and harder. I miss the old coco pops. The orginal pops!! Pleaseeeeee change it back. Im begging!!

30% less sure 99% less taste, I know you want to make them healthier but at the cost of your loyal customers, it's like eating rice crispies as there is no flavour, will be changing to Asda or Tesco's own brand if you don't change back, I brought my kids up on these and they are all fit and healthy, how can you eat this crap and think it tastes just as good? It's just not worth the reduction in sugar to get this abortion that's left

What happened to my beloved Coco Pops
No longer "just like a chocolate milk shake, only crunchy"...…. It now doesn't taste like a chocolate milk shake and disappointed as this along with corn flakes is one of my fav cereals. Kelloggs needs to reevaluate what they are doing when tinkering with a product making it worse.

A bit late with this review but i have eaten 2 bowls of coco pops a day for as long as I can remember. However, in the few months since the recipe has changed I have only managed a couple of bowls that entire time. They have always been my favourite food and I am desperate to like them again but they now taste like I'm eating little stale rabbit poops. How could you do this??? I am now better off eating the super market own brand choco rice I spent my life avoiding. Thanks for ruining a major part of my every day life.

I Will never ever in my whole life buy that again!
The new Coco- pops tasted terrible, ive eaten it for 25 years, and now i started to puke when i first tasted the new Coco pops without knowing they changed the recipe, it tastes awful, bitter, i cant describe how this garbage made me feel after so many years having it for breakfast... Im now ordering ”choco-crispies” from south america hence they taste so much better.
Tastes horrible now
Cant believe Kelloggs have changed the recipe, I won't be buying coco pops anymore, my favourite breakfast cereal now has a strong coco powder taste, completely bitter taste, no sweetness to it what so ever.
People should be responsible for their own health and not let the nanny state tell them how to eat.
Coco pops will phase out tasting like this!
Coco pops have been my breakfast every morning for that past 19 years. I have been thinking into the future of how my kids and I will eat our coco pops together in the mornings just like my father and I did. But that can’t happen anymore as they changed them! I’m no longer buying them as I can’t enjoy them, they have no flavour and are a completely different texture to the old ones. So, Kellogg’s please, I am begging you, change them back before they get phased out! Because trust me, tasting like that they will! You have lost me, a loyal customer of 19 years. My father, 41 years and my mother 40 years. And that’s just my family! Nice one.
