The original red box you know so well is made with ground wheat. The new blue-ish box is made with whole grains.
Yet I’m still halfway confused.
Whole Grain Cream of Wheat is eh, okay. I’ll eat up if it’s laying around warm and sugary, or if this guy serves it to me after he rubs my feet and clips my toenails, but I won’t buy it on purpose with my own money ever again.
And no way I’ll eat it if he cooks it up.
It’s good enough to eat to the end, but I want my red box back. The Taste Test Crew, on the other hand, doesn’t mind it at all. And you might like it too.
The whole grain blue-ish box has a faint wheat bread smell and tastes kinda wheat bread-ish too. Slightly. But that ruins it for me.
I just want my red box back. That one is healthy too. If it ain’t broke, why attempt to re-invent into something less superb?
