Bumping this thread just to ask if anyone knows if there is a vegan cereal like Cheerios available at Hannafords. It's the only grocery store within walking distance of where I live. I don't have a car. And I'm in desperate need of a Cheerios replacement.

I eat Joe's O's every day. They have D, but don't specify D2 or D3. That passes my test.

Ugh, I'm so frustrated. I bought Purely O's today and they are so forking expensive.

I bought a 9 oz box for $4.99. A 14 oz box of Tasteeos costs like $2.50. So it's roughly double the price for half the amount of food. There has to be a better option out there.

I always feel bad bumping a super old post, but it seems like the only discussion of a vegan-friendly Cheerios-like cereal.

In case there's any confusion about Trader Joe's - Joe's O's:

Thank you for your email. Our Joe's O's cereal is not considered Vegan as it contains Vitamin D3, which is animal based and commonly sourced from lanolin or fish. Also, the sugar that is used may be filtered with animal bone char and not vegan appropriate. The mixed tocopherols are always non-animal based for our products. We hope this is helpful.

Sincerely,
Amy
Trader Joe's

Having said that, are there any Cheerios-like cereals out there that are vegan-friendly?

I really hate that companies slip in sheep lanolin and fish oil (ICK!) under the term "mixed tocopherols." I mean, it's good that they say "Mixed" because then it's a trigger for me to call or e-mail the company to verify the source.

As mentioned above, the Whole Foods 365 morning O's are vegan. Not mentioned above is the fact that their rainbow O's are a perfectly good substitute for froot loops.

Ooh, Fruit Loops? Exciting! Erewhon used to make some but they either stopped making them or WF stopped selling them, and they were very expensive.

Awesome! Yeah, I found the 365 brand yesterday, and when I had them this morning, they were about 95% of the way toward Cheerios. Trader Joe's Joe's O's were virtually indistinguishable from Cheerios, so I'm sure there's a difference in formulation. I'm just hoping that the special "note" I'm seeing/enjoying in the other two cereals isn't fish oil or sheep lanolin. :(

Super excited about the Rainbow O's. Also, picked up a box of the 365 Frosted Flakes, and was happy to see the V+/Vegan logo on the side. Trader Joe's is so much more affordable...I just wish they'd get on-board a little more with the vegan thing, especially for their core products.

That's what I've generally found with stuff at Whole Foods - the name-brand stuff is always more expensive than what you can find elsewhere, and the 365 (in-house) brand is comparable. So I try to shop everywhere else first, and end up at Whole Foods for those things I really can't find anywhere else.

At Trader Joe's, I can fill a bag for $30 or so. Go into Whole Foods and the bottom layer of a bag might be $50...$100. It's crazy.
