Shocking News: All Froot Loop Colors Are Really The Same Flavor

Colored froot-flavored cereals like Froot Loops come in a rainbow of colors, and those colors align with different flavors of “froot,” don’t they? Well…no. They do not. All of the different colors in the box are only that: colors.

We all probably knew this on some level, but it took a post on the Today I Learned subreddit linking to a 14-year-old Straight Dope column to jolt us out of our state of not really giving a crap.

Over at Foodbeast, they decided to do some original reporting on this subject, separating out the different colors of Froot Loops, Fruity Pebbles, and Trix and asking testers to determine which color they had just tried. The test results? Yeah, they’re all the same flavor. Kellogg’s confirmed this fact for Cecil Adams. We can at least draw comfort from the knowledge that Toucan Sam has stayed with the product for its more than 50 years of existence, even bringing diaper-clad nieces and nephews to work hawking froot-based breakfast cereals.

    Just let that coal tar dye high fructose corn syrup plastic flavor wash over you in all its homogenized goodness.

    That don’t confront me, as long as my Fruity Pebbles are legit.
