An "off-flavor and smell" from Apple Jacks, Froot Loops, Corn Pops, and Honey Smacks ... maybe the people opening the bags were unfamiliar with the smell of massive doses of sweeteners?

GMO. Kellogg's cereals are not food.

@CJMiva: the "off-flavor and smell" was that the products *didn't* smell like sweeteners.
