Millville Honey Puffs
Honey Puffs Cereal
The next cereal review fares much better than the Millville Fruity Rice review. ALDI carries a decent variety of cereal from Millville each meant to represent a major brand usually.
This cereal is called Honey Puffs and it is naturally supposed to mimic Honey Combs. This was spot on as far as I can tell. My family and I all really enjoyed it. The cereal is shaped similar to the name brand and has a very comparable texture and flavor. It holds well in milk and has a decent amount of sweetness in each bite. The cereal is a sweetened corn & oat cereal and has the usual assortment of vitamins and minerals.
This was a very good buy in my opinion and I will definitely pick it up again. My kids went through the box in 2 days. The price at $1.89 is a really good value and the quality is above expectations.

Millville Fruity Rice Cereal
Fruity Rice Cereal Review
RATING: $ (barely)
I had to try this cereal because I am a longtime fan of Fruity Pebbles. Based on other experiences I was hoping this would yield the same result but I was left disappointed.
Fruity Rice is a cereal made of sweetened fruit flavored rice. The cereal had a strong flavor to it, at times a little too strong and although it could be characterized as a fruit flavoring it sorely lacked in comparison to the flavor of Fruity Pebbles. At times the flavor was almost too much and was unpleasant. If the cereal was permitted to soak in milk the flavoring became less unpleasant but then the texture of the cereal left a lot to be desired.
The price of the cereal was decent at $1.89 per box (13oz) but the quality of the cereal wasn’t up to par with it’s brand name competition. I have tried other cereals under the ALDI brand Millville and can report that most have been very good cost wise and quality wise. On that point, Fruity Rice is the first product to receive a single $ rating. It is inexpensive BUT tastes it as well.
This product will not be purchased again. ALDI does have a DOUBLE QUALITY GUARANTEE that I just might have to take advantage of with this product. The only problem is I wouldn’t mind getting my money back but would feel bad even donating the replacement box of cereal they will provide.
