This is an excellent price for the product. SO voted hot..... however, they're not to my taste - imagine lemon curd mixed with milk.

MING.

I was only pointing out the oxymoron in your post and statement, I agree, you can't too high sugar content probably as per a lot of cereals.

omg i brought some of these back from new york, it certainly sent my kids loopy, about as healthy as a pack of fruit pastels for breakfast ...i think these would be banned if mainstream over here....good price though, a store near me is selling them as imports for £7.xx...madness

I LOVE these. Does anyone know where else these are sold? cannot find them anywhere and don't have a BM store anywhere near us.

These are very nice. Might wait til my auntie comes back from america next month. She can get me some from the American base. Might cost a bit more, but will be much fresher!! Good deal though!!

Selfridges for about £7.50 a box or at the US air base in cambridge where my Aunty keeps me stocked up from. Only about £2 per box there though!

anyone fancy picking me up 2 boxes and posting them out??

Looks good to me... is this in all B&M stores, and also which store did you find these in OP? VOTED HOT!!

These are LUSH but yeah prob not very healthy. Someone on here was kind enough to bring some back for me in their luggage. Lasted about 3 days!

They are no more unhealthy than cheerios or cornflakes. 110 calories and 0.5g saturated fat per serving (30g) or 2 points if you are doing weightwatchers!!

Banned in the U.K., food dyes are U.S. staple

Leave it to the Brits to trump us, again.

Last year, the British banned the unreadable and confusing fine print in legal documents that we in the United States cling to like a comfy blanket.

Now it's artificial food dyes that for the past three decades researchers in the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia have linked to behavioral problems and hyperactivity in children. (Lord only knows what it's doing to adults.)

Anyway, the U.K. has banned the fake dyes and is demanding food makers use natural coloring. But here in the United States, the same manufacturers are allowed to continue selling us Yellow 5 and 6, Red 3 and 40, Blue 1 and 2, Green 3 and Orange B.

"The fact that the British government, not some fly-by-night consumer group, said get rid of it, that emboldened us," said Michael Jacobson, director of the Center for Science in the Public Interest in Washington, D.C., which waved the warning flag about the dyes this month and called on the federal government to make changes.

Jacobson said U.S. companies use natural products in the U.K., while continuing to use the fake ones in the U.S. "That kind of double standard is shameful."

Just consider:

• Aunt Jemima Blueberry Waffles contain no blueberries. The blue bits are Red 40 and Blue 2.

• McDonald's strawberry sauce. Call it McRed 40 sauce. (The U.K. gets real strawberries.)

• Kraft's Guacamole Dip doesn't get its greenish color from avocados (because, we're told, there are hardly any in it). A better name: Old Yella 5, 6 and Blue 1 Dip.

And then there's Mars' Skittles and M&Ms, Kellogg's Froot Loops and Apple Jacks, General Mills' Fruit Rollups and Lucky Charms — just to name a few.

McDonald's and Kraft say they use only common, safe and approved ingredients.

"We realize there are some consumers who prefer products made without artificial ingredients, so we're providing them with brands such as Back to Nature," Kraft spokeswoman Susan Davison said in an e-mail. "Consumers who wish to avoid certain ingredients, including food colors, can do so by checking the labels."










Controversy in Europe

The country of Denmark has outlawed Kellogg's products since 2004. Danish health officials banned the cereal because, as they claimed, Kellogg's wanted to add extremely high levels of vitamin B6, calcium, folic acid and iron, which would reach toxic levels when eaten on a daily basis. Young children risk liver and kidney damage, while the foetuses of pregnant women can suffer complications from the toxins.[9]

The Dutch television show Keuringsdienst van Waarde[10], in an episode aired on 15 October 2009 in the Netherlands, followed up one of Kellogg's Special K nutrional claims, namely the addition of iron. The show provided evidence that the iron was not nutritional ionic iron - as it occurs in natural foods like spinach - but was in fact metallic iron. A Kellogg's telephone helpdesk employee was not willing to discuss the ingredients of their products in general, claiming it was a company secret, although in the show the company was not confronted with the findings. The nutritional experts in the show (a university professor and a general practitioner) agreed that actual metallic iron should not be part of a diet, speculating that it might damage organs.[11] After the airing, the Dutch food authority nuanced the claims made in the TV program, claiming there are no health risks as long as Kellogg's stays within the legal limits. They also challenged the claim that the cereal could contain 'shredded bikes', and responded that iron powder is suitable for human consumption.[12]

The evidence provided during the show follow David Catz's description of an experiment by Dr. Babu George, Sacred Heart University, in which iron is extracted from cereals.[13] The description dates from 1984. As a result of this experiment being published and inquiries being made to the manufacturers, some companies have replaced the metallic iron in their products with an iron compound such as iron(III) phosphate, also called ferric phosphate.

My bad..... thought u where calling me a moron :roll: never heard of the word oxymoron before :whistling:

you can get them in milton keynes for £7.50 at lets eat

These are my favourite cereal of all time. And (questionable science about the effect of food colouring aside) are surprisingly healthy. Just wish we had a B&M store! :x

These aren't sold in the uk for a reason.

And the reason you're thinking of is...nanny state

Yummy, yummy! Wish we had one of these stores here. When we were in America my little girl had these for breakfast every morning and, without a word of a lie, her poo's were like a rainbow!!!! Was so funny :-)

This reminds me of the time someone on a forum got offended when I wrote "I hate that acronym".

i am sure lidl do these but their own brand

No way what an incredible deal, I love Froot Loops! And it's only a best before date so they'll be OK. I wonder if they have any at any Birmingham brances, anyone know?!

Ohh, I miss them! I'd eat loads and go off of them, on and off throughout my childhood.
Haven't had them since I moved here, was quite disappointed that they don't have them here in the UK.

Awesome news. Call me petty, but the sh*tty cereal selection is one of the things I hate most about this place. Maybe B&M can hook us up with some Lucky Charms, too...then we'd be talking!

At least they used to a few years ago, they were just like the original froot loops but they seem to have disappeared recently :x

None in the Harehills or Pudsey branches in leeds (pudsey looked like it was closed down tho). Heat and rep for OP though for a scortchin deal.

None in Hinckley, Leicester

Probably banned.

Why expired?

Have they sold out?

Just out of interest has anyone other than the OP found any yet? If so, where?

Bought 3 boxes in the Bishop Auckland branch at the price above, use-by 20th March 2010, but whatever :P

Update: The flavour is quite different to the US cereal, perhaps due to the short shelf-life remaining but more likely due to a changed recipe (fewer artificial flavourings etc). It's not horrible, but its nowhere near as tasty.
