Froot Loops Cereal Straws Will Be BACK in 2021, Kellogg’s Confirms

Kellogg's cereal straws are headed back to stores after being discontinued in 2009. We're so ready!

If there’s one thing ’90s kids really love, it’s the snacks we grew up with. Luckily, brands are really good at cashing in on food nostalgia, and I’m not complaining! In the last few years, we’ve seen the return of ’90s treats like Cheez Balls, Dunkaroos and Viennetta ice cream.

Of course, there’s nothing we’re more attached to than the cereals we downed every morning before school, and after the return of mini Pop-Tarts cereal, we hear another beloved classic is coming back: Kellogg’s cereal straws!

What Do I Need to Know About the Kellogg’s Cereal Straws?

Kelloggs was way ahead of its time with crunchy cereal straws. They made drinking a glass of milk SO much more fun. Now, 12 years after being discontinued, the cereal giant plans to bring back the most popular flavors—Froot Loops and Cocoa Krispies cereal straws!

If you’re a fan of the fruity taste of colorful Froot Loops, or the chocolaty goodness of Cocoa Krispies, you’re in luck. For those who are just discovering these awesome straw alternatives, they’re perfect for infusing your kid’s (or your) glass of morning milk with some cereal-flavored goodness, or for drinking the last few spoonfuls of milk from your cereal bowl.

When Can I Buy Cereal Straws?

The cereal straws are due to drop in October 2021, and will be available at retailers nationwide. You can get them in three sizes—a 5-count for $1, an 18-count for $3 and a 24-count for $5, so you’ll have plenty to share. Kellogg’s has confirmed that these will become part of its permanent lineup, so you can enjoy cereal straw goodness all year long!

If we’re lucky, we might see other flavors like Apple Jacks and Cocoa Pops back on shelves soon, too.

Psst…if you’re nostalgic for ’90s fast-food flavors, McDonald’s brought Hi-C orange back to its menu.
