I think it has less to do with actually eating this combo than marketing. See replies to tweet.

Not a bad stunt.

I've never had grape nuts, but Weetabix (when dry) is probably flakier.

ETA: and I've just seen a picture of something called Grape Nut Flakes - so I dunno, maybe something more like that and compressed into a brick?
Grape Nuts Flakes have an almost identical texture to Wheaties, slightly different taste.

I didn’t know Weetabix wasn’t as known in the US. I get that it isn’t everyone’s cup of tea but I thought it was such a well known/popular brand.
I'd heard of it before, but then again, I'm pretty well-traveled.

Okay, maybe like Grape Nuts* glued together with honey. Ew.

I don't like the gravel-to-goo thing that Grape Nuts does.

*actually contains neither grapes nor nuts
I've never been a fan of Grape-Nuts. I mean, I like the taste, but it's like eating aquarium gravel.

Weetabix looks more like someone took Grape-Nut Flakes cereal and compressed the flakes into bricks. I'm not sure if the taste is the same though.

Probably. The ingredients are similar.

Flakes turn into goo faster than regular Grape Nuts, so not sure how a brick of them would work out.

I'm gonna give it a hard pass.
