Kelloggs is launching a new Rice Krispies cereal but like all amazing sounding foods in the world, its not going to be available in the UK.

Sigh.

Launching in America, the cereal brand has released a new flavour for the first time in more than 10 years: Strawberry Krispies.

According to Kelloggs, the Rice Krispies will have a naturally-inspired strawberry flavour, and pink in colour.

But, according to Delish, the flavour was actually first released in the 80s, but is now made from a new recipe.

So far, there have been mixed reviews about the cereal on Twitter, with some wondering why Kelloggs felt the need to launch (or re-launch) a classic with strawberry flavour.

Cut it out Strawberry 🍓!!!

STOP infiltrating everything!!! Strawberry milk was gross…now they are trying to wreck Rice Krispies. 🤢🤢🤢

Hey Strawberry…stick to ice cream and just being a fruit.

If these were unsweetened or very lightly sweetened, I'd be interested for sure. I have a feeling this is a highly sugared Rice Krispies in which case I'd prefer the traditional cereal with slices of real strawberry and a dash of sugar.

But I LOVE strawberries, so lean IN! https://t.co/VUpphyL5F1

Were super sad that the cereal isnt coming to the UK. Why does America always get the good stuff?

Heres hoping the rest of us can at least get it on Amazon.
