The box is labeled "New Recipe." I know this is an attempt to win back buyers after the 2018 salmonella outbreak last summer, however this new recipe tastes terrible, bland, and stale. If styrofoam were edible, this would be it.
No one in my family will eat it. I am planning to toss it out for the birds, squirrels, etc to eat in my backyard, but I doubt they will even eat it. Not sure why the recipe changed, the old one had tasted good for at least 30 years, all the back to the days of Sugar Smacks. Don't mess with a classic cereal.
I guess I will buy Post's Golden Crisp from now on, as they still know how to make a good tasting puffed wheat cereal. "New Recipe" Honey Smacks are awful!
Kelloggs - Cat wont even eat cereal milk

The new recipe for honey smacks tastes like cardboard nuggets. My cat always tries to drink my cereal milk and she wont even touch it after it's marinated in this disaster of a recipe.
Consumers wanting healthier options are going to buy other types of cereal. It is criminal to package this garbage in such a colorful box reminiscent of my favorite childhood cereal.
Kelloggs - NEW RECIPE SUCKS
by VictoriousStagBeetle #15669181.0
I have to double check the expiration date to make sure they weren’t old! The taste stale & no honey taste! I gee why they had to change the recipe because of the salmonella incident but WHO CARES!! I won’t be buying these again unless they go back to the old recipe! That’s why I have a doctor SMH
Kelloggs - Honey Smacks
by ConsiderateDeer #15617705.0
There are no Smacks old or new in my area. After the old ones were removed I tried the new formula, it was not worth eating. Now they are not in the stores. They said a child died from eating the original Smacks and that's why they changed the formula.
I guess people did not like the new formula so they just took it off the market.
I grew up eating original and I'm 62 now. I miss my Smacks. Kathy Ashrafi
Kelloggs - Ew! New recipe is sooooo nasty!!!
by GrowlingTasmanian Devil #15662901.0
I LOVED the old recipe of Honey Smacks. I craved them so much when they weren’t available.
I was so so happy when I saw they’d returned to shelves. I bought 2 boxes. But when I put the first spoonful in my mouth, I wanted to spit it out! Something tasted like it was missing from the cereal.
It was so nasty that I went back into the pantry to double check that I didn’t buy a generic brand by accident. So gross!
I won’t be purchasing Honey Smacks again. I guess I’ll be mourning the original recipe.
Kelloggs - Kellogg’s Honey smacks new recipe

I Purchased a box of Kellogg’s Honey smacks a few days ago. I did not even see on the box it is a new recipe.
I just poured myself a bowl and I thought they were stale so I checked the box and the date says good till 2020.
These are disgusting and you need to bring the old recipe back. Until then I will never purchase another box of Honey smacks.
Kelloggs - New recipe is horrid!
by LikeLadybird844 #15645411.0
I used to love the cereal when I was younger and it has always been my go-to and now it's not anymore because the new recipe taste not very good at all and I would not recommend this to anyone else
Kelloggs - What the smack?
by ShortNeanderthal910 #1561142
I finally found one of my favorite cereals in one of the drug stores Honey Smacks. Yay!
I thought.... then I read the box with some new recipe. Um there’s NOTHING wrong with the original. I’m eating this new box and I should have got sugar bears because they are just as horrible!
I’m returning my two unopened boxes for captain crunch!!! You suck! I will not say honey smacks is my favorite anymore.
I’m so why are you ruining your good stuff? You don’t already overcharge for a box?
