Weight Watchers Cereal Review

A few weeks ago I received an email from BzzAgent asking if I would be interested in reviewing the new Weight Watchers Cereal. Who doesn't like cereal? I said, sign me up!

I received a box of the Frosted Shredded Wheat and the Oat Clusters with Cherries and Almonds. I received both of these for free along with some coupons to share but all opinions are my own.

I give both of these a big thumbs down. Weight Watchers has been trying for years to produce "healthy" foods that people can use on their weight loss journey. Weight Watchers advertises that for only 3pp these cereals fit into a healthy diet. 

I'm going to leave my opinion about Weight Watchers off this post, I'll just talk about the cereal.

When I opened the box of Oat Cluster Cereal, my initial thought was, "Damn this is sweet". Then I looked at the ingredients and saw why.


Corn, whole grain wheat, sugar, cherries(cherries, sugar, glycerin), whole grained oats, almonds,corn syrup, contains 2% or less of salt, malt extract, molasses, cinnamon, honey, natural and artificial flavor, baking soda, caramel color, bht(to preserve freshness). Vitamins and minerals: vitamin b1(thiamine mono nitrate), vitamin b2(riboflavin) niacin, vitamin b6, folic acid, vitamin b12, vitamin a, palmitate, vitamin c, vitamin d, reduced iron, zinc
Corn syrup, molasses and honey. When it comes to weight loss, maybe not having 3 different sweeteners is a good idea? Maybe that's just me. I was really disappointed in the number of junk ingredients listed. Ugh. I'm not a fan of eating high fructose corn syrup at all. All the GMOs and junk in our food is what's making us fat

After my first handful. I didn't try it again.

As for the Frosted Shredded Wheat with Protein, guess what the added protein is, soy. Yep, soy, so that cereal was a no go for me. Kev tried it and he was unimpressed. 

Sorry folks, I can't stand behind any of these products. Want a good cereal, go to Whole Foods and find something with less junk.
