“Froot Loops are just gay Cheerios”

"Froot/Fruit Loops are just gay Cheerios” is a saying that has been printed on many images. Froot Loops (unlike the regular flavor of Cheerios) come in many colors, like the LGBT rainbow flag.

The cereal is called “Froot Loops,” but many people write it as “Fruit Loops.” The word “fruit”—slang for “gay”—may also be part of the joke.

“Fruit Loops:  Gay Cheerios” was posted on the newsgroup rec.boats on April 26, 1999. “Fruit Loops are gay Cheerios” was posted on the newsgroup de.comp.sys.handhelds.palm-pilot on January 5, 2000.

“Be a Froot/Fruit Loop in a world of Cheerios” is another saying about the two cereals.


Wikipedia: Froot Loops
Froot Loops is a brand of sweetened, fruit-flavored breakfast cereal produced by Kellogg’s and sold in many countries. The cereal pieces are ring-shaped (hence “loops") and come in a variety of bright colors and a blend of fruit flavors (hence “froot”, a cacography of fruit). However, there is no actual fruit in Froot Loops and they are all the same flavor. Kellogg’s introduced Froot Loops in 1963. Originally, there were only red, orange, and yellow loops, but green, purple, and blue were added during the 1990s. Different methods of production are used in the UK where, due to the lack of natural colourings for yellow, red and blue Froot Loops are purple, green and orange, and the loops are also larger in size. Although the marketing side of Kellogg’s sold the idea that each individual loop color was a different flavor, Kellogg’s has acknowledged that all share the same fruit-blend flavor.

Wikipedia: Cheerios
Cheerios is an American brand of cereal manufactured by General Mills, consisting of pulverized oats in the shape of a solid torus. In some countries, including the United Kingdom, Cheerios is marketed by Cereal Partners under the Nestlé brand; in Australia and New Zealand, Cheerios is sold as an Uncle Toby’s product. It was first manufactured in 1941 and was originally called CheeriOats.
