I’m new to this brand of cereal but I bought a box was full of small pieces, and the box wasn’t full to begin with so it seems like this was filler? For 6g of protein I can buy other things and this went crunchy fakes to mush in about 2 minutes of contact with milk. Won’t be buying again

This cereal is very hard to chew. It hurts my teeth. The tiny little flakes have hard pieces in them. The store was out of the berry kind that I like. Will not buy the plain again.

Tiny hard pieces

I recently started buying Special K original for a snack at work. Half the box is tiny little hard pieces that cold definitely break a tooth. I was thinking I got a bad box or two. I'm on my 4th from stores just to see if they're all like this. They are. I see from other review it's a common problem lately. Unfortunate! The big flakes are great. The hard tiny pieces are awful. I think I'm giving up on this.

Not Fit To Eat!

Lena - 3 months ago

I bought the 18oz box of Special K Original Cereal because I wanted to start eating a little healthier. When I fixed my bowl of cereal with milk I started to chew the cereal and I start pulling out of my mouth these small bead like objects. I first thought it was maybe glass or something. So, I stopped eating the cereal after putting the small objects to a light bulb trying to figure out what it was. It's in the flake and it makes the cereal not edible. This product as I can remember use to be better than this. What has happen? The texture is so bad that you can't even enjoy the cereal. These small objects is hard enough to break your teeth and I don't feel like it's safe to eat.

Hard, inedible pieces. What is going on?

I’ve loved special k since childhood, having first tried it at my grandma’s house (it was the only cereal she bought). I recently had a bad experience with a box of kellogg’s Rice Krispies, where the cereal had hard pieces that could potentially break a tooth. Sad to say this issue seems to affect special k too! Most recent box has hard, dense bits in every bite. I assume this is either an issue of how Kellogg’s is preparing the cereal in its factory or an issue of its rice grain supplier. Either way that’s two strikes. Unfortunate as i have enjoyed Kellogg’s products all my life and it’s sad to see the quality fall so drastically. I’ll be looking into generic alternatives until they fix these issues.

I am 70 and I have loved Special K most of my life. I am getting really discouraged with those hard pieces in my cereal. Back in the day never found a one. Now there is sever in each bowl. So hard that they are hurting my teeth. Love the taste but not enjoying eating them anymore. With regret I probably will try going to another cereal

Like many others, I'm a long time customer of Special K. Have always preferred and enjoyed it over any other brands. Sadly, it seems like either the quality control, or manufacturing process, has gone downhill for some time. Definitely is like eating a mix of flakes and rock hard smaller pieces. In the past I thought I just got a random "bad" box. But the number o months, it's every single box I buy. May give these a try in the future, but for now.. will be eliminating Kellogg's from shopping list. Not worth it any more.

This use to be my go-to cereal for years... This last few years, I don't know what has changed. The whole box of cereal is now broken cereal pieces that have become extremely hard as a stick, the flavor lacks anymore. Why have you done this to a cereal that had nothing wrong with it? What are you doing to it and putting in it? It's almost - isn't edible, and tasteless. After 20 years of buying, I'm done with Special K ORGINAL...

You can add me to the dozens of comments about hard bits in Special K. I complained to the grocery and they weren’t surprised. Sales are down and I won’t be buying this again.

There’s hard tooth cracking bits in every single bite i take of this cereal! My teeth ache every time i have a bowl of it and i have to basically try swallowing it without chewing it after it sits in milk awhile so i don’t break any teeth. I used to love this cereal before, now it’s garbage. Please fix it and make it like you used to be!

I want to like it, but it has really hard bits

I like this cereal - it’s like rice crispies flavor and texture in a flake, which makes it feel more “adult” to eat. And the nutritional value is pretty decent. But every. single. box. has a bunch of little hard bits in it that feel like they’re going to break my teeth when I bite them. They don’t soften like the rest of the cereal in milk. They’re not easy to see, so you can’t avoid them. I don’t get it?

Like many other people, I am annoyed and even afraid to eat any more of this cereal due to the hard bits. I do not want to text you to have you make it up to me. How about removing those hard bits and giving me my money back instead.
