I’m going to do something I never do here and give you the opportunity not to read any further:
General Mills Nestle Drumstick Cereal sucks, and it sucks hard.

It’s an old-fashioned junk rant, so strap yourselves in if you’ve decided not to heed my advice.
The taste of The Original Sundae Cone®, now in your cereal bowl.

This (☝🏼) right here is exactly what sets the stage for the Nestle Drumstick Cereals being quite possibly the most disappointing cereal that’s ever been released.
What do you think of when you hear “the taste of The Original Sundae Cone®”? You think of ice cream, the waffle cone, chocolate coating, maybe the nugget on the bottom and the shame of eating several cones… but most importantly, you think of ice cream.
Well the General Mills Nestle Drumstick cereal has none of this.
General Mills Nestle Drumstick Cereal (Classic Vanilla)
The cereal is comprised of “cone cereal pieces”, “cocoa nuggets”, and “ice cream flavored scoops.” This would be fine and good (amazing even!) if executed properly, except:
The cone cereal pieces are Golden Grahams.

The cocoa nuggets are Cocoa Puffs.

The “ice cream flavored scoops” have less flavor than Kix.
The thing is, General Mills could have gotten away with this if they didn’t specifically promise the taste of The Original Sundae Cone®. I’m fine and good if this was merely inspired by Nestle Drumsticks, like many other cereals do. Hell, I would be mostly okay with the exact flavors here if they simply shaped the grahams to look like mini waffle cones (we have the technology!) But nope! We have a mishmash of existing General Mills cereals instead, and I can’t excuse the blatant overpromise.
The most egregious of these lies are the ice cream flavored discs. I taste corn and wheat, and that’s certainly not ice cream. If Baskin Robbins’ 32nd flavor was “Not Good Enough to Be Kix”, I don’t think anyone is rushing out to build a sundae.
They’re not any better in milk.
Rating: 2 out of 10
General Mills Drumstick Cereal (Mint Chocolate)
The Mint Chocolate Nestle Drumstick Cereal is the same shit all over again, except the ice cream flavored scoops are now mint-flavored.
Except they’re not.
Eat them in isolation and you’ll swear they’re no different than the “vanilla” discs.
If you do a blind taste test between the two, you may notice the faintest mint flavor when you’re forced to answer which one is which.
Milk can’t save this one either.
When you eat the cereal pieces together, nothing close to a sundae cone comes together. You’ll either taste Golden Grahams or Cocoa Puffs (depending which appears more on your spoon), because the Kix-flavored ice cream garbage is too weak a flavor to compete at all against the other two.
I would normally rate the Mint Chocolate a little higher because it does have marginally more flavor overall than Classic Vanilla, but in this case the extent to which they overpromised the specific flavor is perhaps the biggest crime of all.

In summary, you really shouldn’t have read this far.
