Reviews For Organic Purple Corn Flakes

Based on 21 Reviews

I love the taste of these! Perfect breakfast food.

- Toni Williams

Good Alternative

These are a good yummy alternative to other cereals out there! I am gluten intolerant so I gave these a try since its all corn and no wheat ingredients (but not certified gluten free). Definitely addicting and great for handfuls here and there to satisfy the need for a crunch!

- Alex

Slightly Sweet, Kids Loved It!

I'm not much of a cereal eater, but I like to keep some healthy cereals on hand for nieces and nephew when they come to visits. One of the problems I encounter is that they are used to the multi-colored, unhealthy cereals at home and turn up their noses at anything oven remotely healthy-seeming as 'yucky-tasting' and, the death-knell- 'boring.' Neither of those applied to these tasty little flakes! They ate them right up without the usual complaining and loved the appearance, taste and crunch. They must have said something to their Mom, because she later asked me where to get the 'purple corn flakes' her kids wanted her to get on her next shopping trip.
I'd call that a success with those picky eaters!

Delicious and fun corn flakes!

These have just enough sweetness to them but not too much, and get to be the perfect texture (a little softened, but still crunchy) in just a minute in milk. The purple makes them fun to eat!

- Serena

Not bad, but not that good

The package I received was slightly stale. I lightly baked the remainder and that helped a little. I prefer a lighter flake, though. Was sweeter than I expected, but not too much so. Package is small, but these are substantial flakes, not like the main brands, so serving-wise, it's a good deal.

"Too good to be good for me

Ugh! These are the bane of my existence in that they're so good! I can't stop eating them. They're not too sweet, but just enough. Crunchy, earthy, and they look adorable (you'll know what I mean when you try them)! Lots of fiber, so I guess I shouldn't feel too bad about binging out? Hmm...

Great Cereal

I love having this cereal as a snack throughout the day. It is very satisfying and the color is fun! I love adding in fruits. Super healthy and tasty treat.

- Alicia

Pretty Good!

These are pretty good, thought the carton would be bigger, and at full price I would not have bought them. At Thrive's price it is reasonable. I mixed them with blueberries,bananas, and almond milk.

- Jill


I love these corn flakes! I just bought three cartons.... They are purple, round, dense and sweet. I tell myself that, being made from purple corn, i may be getting more antioxidents....

- Janeen

Okay... Fun color!

I am an absolute cereal addict! I loved the color of these corn flakes... super fun! Wasn't crazy over the texture or flavor, and the cereal started to taste like the cardboard it was in after a bit, but overall enjoy the cereal and love that the box is Eco-friendly! Thinking about trying the chocolate cereal from this brand next :)

- Jade

Great Breakfast Food

This ready to eat purple corn cereal is great when the weather turns warm. Just chop up some bananas, pineapple, strawberries or apples and add to the cereal along with a little milk. Delicious and nutritious!

- Elizabeth

Not Fla-ken out

I love the purple corn flakes cereal...There is no way I can express how good and wholesome and a lil kiss of sweetness each bite gave me...and then the carton was empty, oh so sad, I'll just have to get a double order this next time,,,mmmm

- Nancy


Interesting to look at in your cereal bowl but quite delicious!

- Doris Howie


As a 26 year old child and a breakfast grinch, I'm surprised to have found a cereal I'm happy to eat in the morning. I love these!

- Alanna

Surprisingly delicious

Didn't expect to like this as much as I did. Has a nice texture crunchy yet soft when in a milk product. Putting this on reorder. Want bigger boxes. I just ate half the box...

- Tasha


I really like this cereal! They're satisfyingly crunchy. The shape and color do indeed make them fun to eat, and it's a very hearty cereal.
They're delicious without being too sweet, the box is recyclable, there's no excess packaging, and the images on the box are great.

- Misha

Delicious and so fun to eat!

This cereal is a beautiful rich purple color with a nutty, real corn flavor, and the packaging is very convenient -- just use a clip to secure the top and stick it in your pantry! Like all healthier cornflakes, it doesn't have the same thin crunchiness of traditional cornflakes, but it's crunchy and so delicious! Feels like a treat to eat these!

- Nicole

So good!

This is so good with only 3 imgredients corn cane sugar and sea salt.

- Marc


This is really awesome corn cereal! I am definitely going to order more of this, especially at the low price.
