Frosted Flakes are delicious. They’re delicately crunchy, have an excellent corn flavor, and are sweet enough to stand in for dessert if you want something to balance out a salty dinner. Also, Tony the Tiger is hot. Sue us.
Our favorite anthropomorphic, bandana-clad tiger boi recently unleashed two new flavors of Frosted Flakes on the cereal aisle: Strawberry Milkshake and Cinnamon French Toast. Are they worth a spot in your breakfast rotation or should you stick with the original?

- Strawberry Milkshake Frosted Flakes
Welp, I’m completely obsessed with this cereal. I brought it home and I eat a bowl almost every night. Sometimes I have two or three consecutive bowls. It’s sick, but I can’t help myself. Without milk, the strawberry flavor is a little too overpowering (hence the 9 Sporks), but these flakes are absolutely made to be eaten with milk. The box even promises that you’ll be left with a bowl of strawberry milk once you’ve consumed the flakes, and that claim holds up. If you like strawberry milk, strawberry ice cream, and strawberry milkshakes, you’re really going to love this.

- Cinnamon French Toast Frosted Flakes
This isn’t dramatically different than other cinnamon cereals, but it does manage to incorporate an almost bread-y flavor I promise I wasn’t imagining (I thought I maybe tasted egg too, but my colleague Jordan Myrick disabused me of that notion). “If you like French toast, I think you would love these,” said Jordan, a person who prefers both pancakes and waffles to French toast. Cinnamon French Toast Frosted Flakes didn’t quite make a French toast convert of them, but this cereal definitely has its virtues. Plus, cinnamon cereal is pretty common, so go with Strawberry Milkshake if you want something unique.
