Aussie cereal lovers have been left feeling frustrated and ‘ripped off’ after opening a box of Kellogg’s Nutri-Grain.

Another customer who also bought a box to find it ‘half empty’ also vented his frustrations.

‘Gee what a buy, Limited Edition Nutri-Grain. You’re limited to a third of a box, great stuff Kellogg’s,’ cereal lover Dennis Shanahan wrote and posted an image of the packet in front of the box.

Other social media users claimed the amount of cereal to be ‘terrible’ and ‘a joke’. 

‘Yeah I bought some [yesterday] from Coles..wasn’t impressed..6 bucks for bugger all in a cardboard box,’ one person commented.

‘It’s the limited edition Weight Watchers box,’ another joked.

Other customers shared their thoughts on Twitter stating Kellogg’s should reduce the size of the packaging to better suit the amount of cereal.

‘The size of the box is to confuse your brain into thinking there is much more in it for the price,’ one person wrote.

Another person who tried the new limited edition flavours said it ‘tastes like the regular one’.

A Kellogg’s spokesperson told news.com.au the brand’s range of cereals were ‘sold by weight, not volume.’

‘Each box of cereal is weighed multiple times throughout the production process to ensure it’s the correct weight, as indicated on pack,’ the spokeswoman said.   

‘It’s important to note that the air in each bag has a vital role in maintaining the freshness and quality of the cereal and protecting it from breakage.’
