In 2006, Treehugger.com wrote about the introduction of a line of organic cereals by Kellogg's. The article talked about concerns surrounding "organic" being taken over by a mega-corporation, but decided that ultimately organic of any sort was a good thing.
At the same time, a Rice Krispies-loving consumer (me) discovered Organic Rice Krispies on the shelf at her local supermarket. To say I was excited might be an understatement. I love the Snap, Crackle, and Pop, but I do not love high fructose corn syrup and pesticides - neither of which were found in the organic version. Sure, it was more expensive and sure, they didn't make it in the large box that I preferred due to my frequent cereal consumption, but I was willing to splurge.
Alas, one day, Organic Rice Krispies was no longer on the shelves. I assumed it had to do with lack of consumer interest at my particular store. Today, after much time had passed, I decided to find out where I could buy them by emailling Kellogg's. I will credit them for their speedy response, but it did not make me happy: "This product is no longer marketed by our company, since consumer demand simply does not warrant its continued production. At this time, there are no plans to reintroduce this product."
I didn't specifically ask about any of the other cereals in their organic line, but I assume the worst. Does anyone else miss them?
