Glutino Honey Nut cereal


I saw this in the store and thought, "Hm, I bet this would be like honey nut cheerios!" and I was really excited to try them.

I got home, opened the box, and out of habit took a sniff. Oh, wow. What a strange smell. It just kinda hits your nose like POW. What a strange, strong, pronounced odor. What is that smell? Is that honey? Is that the smell of hardcore real honey, and it's just really odd-smelling because I'm used to an artificial honey-flavor smell?

I don't know what the deal is, but it's a definite and odd, unappetizing smell. I can't bring myself to eat a bowl of this cereal. I had some ready to put in my mouth, but the smell is so off-putting that I just can't enjoy it. It's just such a weird smell! Not a bad smell like bad food or rotten eggs or wet dog or anything, just really strange.

Has anyone else had the same experience or share the same opinion? Did I just get a bad box?

I tried this cereal and you're right, it had an odd smell. I also didn't like the texture, the pieces were really rough and scratchy in my mouth and then they got weird and soggy (but somehow still scratchy). Nothing like honey nut cheerios.
