Kellogg’s Fun Pack

Kellogg’s Fun Pack – Spin Master Games – 600 pieces (100 pieces each)

Another six-pack of cereal puzzles, but instead of General Mills cereals this time we have Kellogg’s. It’s been quite a while since I did the first set (by White Mountain), and although last time each little puzzle got it’s own post I don’t think it’ll be that way this time around. There are way too many puzzles in the queue to add 6 more all at once!

As far as I know this is my first Spin Master puzzle, and the quality was impressive. The pieces were on the thinner side, but not too much so; excellent reproduction, good fit, and nice variety of shapes too. The pieces are on the larger side, and each finished puzzle was approximately 9 x 13 inches – pretty big for only 100 pieces. All around they are a good quality set of puzzles, and were extremely fun to put together.

Ready for some cereal memories and critiques?

These used to be called Sugar Smacks when I was young, but nowadays we wouldn’t want anyone to think we’re feeding our little ones anything less than healthy. Changing the name but keeping the food inside the same doesn’t do much if you ask me. Oh well. Corporations. Whatchya gonna do?

I don’t recall ever having these, they never really appealed to me or my sisters; or maybe we did have them and I’m just too old to remember things accurately. 🤔

Here’s another one that I never cared for. Fruity and chocolatey cereals weren’t my thing as a child – and they still aren’t.

Ah, my old friend Toucan Sam; I enjoyed his commercials very much, but not his cereal. Again, not a fan of the fruity tastes. They all tasted the same to me – boring.

Now we’re getting to the good stuff if you ask me. Of the six cereals in this pack, this is really the only one I actually liked. It’s like Corn Flakes, but without the hassle of having to transfer the sugar bowl into cereal bowl to make it palatable. Every once in a while I get a craving for these and buy myself a box, but that doesn’t happen very often, and usually before the box is gone I’ve become bored with them.

Corn Pops were ok, in a pinch – they were sweeter than Kix, and the texture was slightly less like cardboard; but overall I’d rather have almost anything else (except Grape Nuts). If memory serves they were just puffs of squeaky cereal without much flavor. No thank you.

Rice Krispies are BORING as a cereal in my humble opinion, but excellent for making tasty treats with melted marshmallows and a little butter.

These little puzzles were lots of fun, and if you’re in the mood for some sweetened cereals without all the calories I can definitely recommend this pack of puzzles. 🥣

And tomorrow is the announcement of the winner of the Happy New Year Puzzle Giveaway – if you haven’t entered yet this is your last chance!

    Never heard of Spin Master Games but what a lovely surprise that the quality was pretty good. Did you purchase this new (if so, where?) or was this a thrift store find? I’ve done some low piece count puzzles before but the pieces were typical size or a bit smaller in size. Since each of these 100 piece count puzzles finishes out at 9″ x 13″, did you find the puzzles a bit too easy to do since the puzzle pieces were much larger than usual?

    P.S. I looooved Rice Krispies growing up. I don’t think I had Honey Smacks until I went away to college as my mom didn’t buy sweet cereals for us.

        For anyone who may be interested: the Spin Master Kellogg’s cereal 6-pack of puzzles are available at Wal-Mart in the store for $9.97. The puzzle can also be shipped or you can order online for in-store pick-up if your local store has it in stock (both options $8.17). I told hubby about this puzzle pack and he surprised me by bringing it home! He thought the individual cereal box packaging was super cool! It really does look like just like the variety pack of cereal (for eating!) you can get at the grocery store!

        I think we are both going to really like putting them together. Not sure when that will happen but I’ll let you know about the quality for my pack. Smaller count puzzles is what’s missing in our stash. We have mainly 500, 750 (I think just Buffalo does that piece count), and 1000. (750 is my sweet spot, love that size but don’t always love the images that come in that size.) We have a few 300 but even those can take some time, days even. It will be nice to have these 100 piece puzzles, fun images, and they can be put together in one short-ish session. Thanks for sharing your feelings about this puzzle set!

        I did the Rice Krispies puzzle. Impressive quality. Slightly thinner than usual puzzle pieces but excellent image reproduction, pieces fit well together and could be lifted without falling apart, and my bag of pieces had zero puzzle dust. I had just a few slightly dented pieces (along the border) but it didn’t bother me. Hopefully the other 5 cereal puzzles will be of the same quality.

    Fun observations! Yes I also remember Sugar Smacks and Frosted Flakes were Sugar Frosted Flakes when I was a kid.
    I love the Rice Krispie treats with peanut butter and then top with melted butterscotch chips and chocolate chips. Oh great, now I have to go to the store!!!

  3. I only know Rice Krispies and Frosted Flakes. We used Rice Krispies to make what we called Ice Chocolate. It was basically coconut butter, sugar, cocoa powder and Rice Krispies. Had to be refrigerated, because coconut butter pretty much melts at room temperature.

    Fun post and collection of mini-puzzles. Pretty sure I liked all of these cereals as a kid except for Corn Pops (which I don’t remember trying). Sugar smacks were quite tasty as I recall. Fortunately I’m not into sugary cereals anymore! -Ronda
