Reduced Sugar Trix Cereal

No-Image.jpgI love new Reduced Sugar Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal, and now Iíve had a chance to eat new Reduced Sugar Trix. General Mills has another hit with this cereal. By sweetening the cereal with Splenda No Calorie Sweetener, the cereal has 75% less sugar than regular Trix. With only 3 grams of sugar per serving, you can eat it by the handful if you want to. I actually did this, and it tastes great straight out of the box. It also tastes great with milk, so buy yourself a box and have a bowl for breakfast as soon as you can.

Phoood rating: Outstanding!

I was absolutely impressed with this cereal. I couldn't tell the difference taste-wise between regular Trix and the Reduced Sugar Trix. And the Trix bits are the old school shape!

So how much sugar was in Trix when it first came out?

46% sugar when it was introduced in 1954.

trix cereal is the best ever!.. i have been eating almost a box for 2-3 days. it doesnt really make you gain weight so you could eat as much as you like. i have been eating trix reduced sugar for a year and a month stright, everday the same trix never missed a day. if i was going on vacation.. i would bring the box or bag.. and get the milk in a hotel.. and pour in my cereal.. haha lol.. i would recomonbed hotels serving these at breakfasts. kids would love itt!!

I love all the reduced sugar cereals... My husband and I are both Diabetic, we eat these cereals every morning, they never affect our glucose readings...You used to have the CoCo Puffs in the reduced sugar, too, but I don't see them any more..
Please keep making these cereals, they are so enjoyable to us Diabetics..

I'm diabetic and i loved the Reduced Sugar Trix. I have yet been able to find them at the stores that i used to get them from. (walmart and farm fresh) Are they still being made, and where can i go purchase them. They need to keep these reduce sugar cereals out, since a large amount of Americans are diabetic.

I miss the old trix that had shapes. First of all, they tasted much better. Also, they were more interesting to eat with all the different shapes. I don't know why they changed the shapes and reduced sugar always tastes worse. If you're going to completely change your cereal, why not just make a new kind so everyone's happy??
