Carl's Jr., Hardee's add Froot Loops Mini Donuts to menu
from USA Today:
If you follow your nose to a Carl's Jr., or Hardee's, you can find a fun new breakfast item: Froot Loops Mini Donuts.
The miniature donuts, inspired by the Kellogg's cereal, are available at the restaurant chains across the U.S. starting Wednesday. They come in five vibrant colors – red, yellow, purple, green and blue – and taste just like their even smaller cereal counterparts.
A five-pack of the mini-donuts costs $1.99 and they will be available for a limited time. (No word yet on the cut-off date from the chains' parent company CKE Restaurants.)
We haven't gotten to taste them yet, but there are some early results from a few Froot Loops mini-donuts tasters. "They smell and taste EXACTLY like real Froot Loops. It's kind of insane,” said Madison Flager, who wrote about them for food site Delish.com.
Crystal Ro, an editor at BuzzFeed, said once she smelled them, she was transported back to her childhood. "They smell and taste exactly like the real thing — in, like, baked good form — and my elementary-school self would’ve gobbled all of these down in like two seconds," she said in a BuzzFeed taste test. "But, as an adult who is constantly having teeth problems (don’t @ me, it’s genetic), I had to stop myself after one."
