Breakfast cereal is a staple of many childhoods. Trying to get your parents to buy you the cool cereal with the fun and colorful box? Been there, done that! Now that Food Theory exists, I can go back and try to answer some of the questions that have haunted me since childhood. Questions like, what the heck do Apple Jacks actually taste like? They never say they taste just like apples despite it being in the name! So what flavor are they and WHY do they taste awfully close to their competition - Froot Loops? Get your cereal bowls ready, Theorists!

  • There is no such thing in nature as a blue raspberry. Even if you find a blue raspberry product with natural flavors it probably doesn't have any actual raspberry flavor. So what is a blue raspberry taste then?

  • I am sure that they taste the same but our brain tries to differentiate them and distinguish the 7 different flavors.

  • I haven’t seen the whole video yet but I think all of them all have the same flavors in them but for example when theres a red one there’s more cherry flavor then the other flavors.

  • Here's my theory When our eyes see one color, we associate it with certain flavors. So if all of the loops have all of the flavors, the one we associate the color with will stick out. But if we don't see the color, we won't be able to associate a flavor, meaning that none of the flavors will stand out.

  • The secret is they are all froot flavor but according to colour they have the most of the flavor of the representing colour

  • I never tasted any flavor with Froot Loops. It just taste like sugary wood. Apple Jacks tastes like sweet wood with spices. Captain Crunch tastes much more frooty than Froot Loops. The problem is that Captain Crunch is so sweet that it hurts my teeth. Life & Golden Puffs are the only cereals I had that simultaneously maintain health & flavor.

  • I mean, when I was a kid, they tasted different, but in elementary school, one of my friends told me they were all the same, and ever since they have always tasted the same

  • And it's similar to Skittles. All skittles are the same flavour but they use different coloured dyes and scents to trick our brains into thinking they're different flavours. Cause we kinda eat with our eyes and noses first, then with our mouths.

  • matpat: my childhood brain could absolutely taste different flavors. me: either that there's a bit more of one flavor in a froot loop, or (and this can happen) you were so inclined to believe it that your brain made you taste it.
