Special K Protein Plus cereal has changed for the WORSE

I loved this cereal. 10gm of protein, 5gm of fiber in a 100cal serving. Not bad for a cold cereal treat.

I just realized they have changed the formulation. It now has half the fiber, FOUR TiMES the sugar, more calories, 60% more sodium, and now uses soy protein isolate as an ingredient........WTH?????

So make sure to always check your labels because products change.

If you love this cereal as much as I do, call or email em and ask to have it changed back (hey, it worked with Coke Classic!)........meanwhile, I'm going to try to track down some "old" boxes........

Tofucheez - I liked that cereal too. I don't know why they always mess things up when they consider them improved! Whenever changes are made to products seems like they are anti low carbers!

I've never found ANY low carb cereal at the grocery. The one I get is Hi-Lo from Netrition. 12 protein, 13 carbs of which 6 are fiber. I will look for old boxes of Special K Protein Plus, but it sounds like I discovered this too late. Too bad.

sligh--Netrition also carries the Protein Plus, so you can see what the box looks like (Netrition's turnover is so quick they don't have the older version anymore). I'm going to try going to store's with a slow turnover. It's a great tasting cereal. I just don't get it. The selling point of this cereal, and what made it unique, was it's nutritional profile. If I wanted a high cal bowl of sugar, I'd buy Lucky Charms.
