I thought I was the Honey Monster for about 6 weeks in 1994. Should this be included in the page? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:49, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

As there are no objections i shall proceed. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:56, 15 August 2008 (UTC)

This entire entry reads like PR copy, rather than an encyclopedia article. Why is it called 'family breakfast cereal' instead of just 'breakfast cereal'? What's this '60% of the products total sugars are derived from the complex carbohydrates' nonsense? The statistic is unsourced, and the 'factoid' itself is completely irrelevant; apparently having been inserted only to suggest that the product might be healthy. Sugar is sugar, and prevailing medical opinion is that most of us need to eat less of it, regardless of from where it was derived. This needs to be re-written from a neutral point of view.

And while I'm at it, what the hell is 'natural' wheat? Is there any other kind of wheat? What does 'unnatural' wheat do? Commit some kind of cereal sodomy? SpaceyHopper 17:17, 9 May 2007 (UTC)

Has anyone else noticed that burnt hair smells like Sugar Puffs? Can anyone explain why? DANZIG666 18:44, 28 September 2007 (UTC)

Somebody beat me to adding how they blatantly ripped-off Crimping, really badly. I will never eat another Puff! -- (talk) 20:02, 11 March 2008 (UTC)

I think someone better fix or delete the Honey Monster article. (talk) 21:07, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

Seems someone has had a bit of a go at the article - the 2008 campaign is brought up, along with SP being mentioned in Billy Elliot, but the Mighty Boosh controversy is completely removed and the description of the ads borders on worship! —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:03, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:SugarPuffsPack320g.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:SugarPuffsPack320g.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.

Sugar Puffs Launched before 1957[edit]

Sugar Puffs were lauched before 1957; probably the beginning of 1955: see half-page advertisement in Daily Express, dated 22nd February 1955. The character on the packet fronts was origianlly a steam train named 'Sugar Puff'. Jeremy the bear did not appear until (possibly) the second half of 1961. La Loir Noir 08:07, 26 October 2007 (UTC)

Honey Waffles 8)[edit]

They use the Honey Monster thing, and it says on the cereal box it's in connection with Sugar Puffs 8) —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:15, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

Is it appropriate to add...[edit]

That Sugar Puffs increases the odour of urine? My edit has been reverted so I'll ask the question here. I can provide cited sources for this edit. -- Myfavouritecolourispink 20:34, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

I'd like to see more than a passing mention in a single book before I'd say it's notable enough to include. --OnoremDil 21:00, 22 July 2009 (UTC)
Well gee, so you're saying that something you eat or drink affects what you excrete? Duh! It's common knowledge. No need to mention it in this article, or any article of an edible or potable substance for that matter.--Atlan (talk) 22:09, 22 July 2009 (UTC)
It seems to be too trivial to include here. Triplestop x3 23:31, 22 July 2009 (UTC)
It's like saying smoking affects the smell of your breath. We all know it's true, but there's no need to have it in every cigarette article.--Atlan (talk) 08:27, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
In the Urine article, it only listed several foods that increases the odour of urine, meaning not every food has that effect. -- Myfavouritecolourispink 10:01, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
That's false logic. It's both based on the assumption that the list in Urine is exhaustive, which it certainly isn't, and on the assumption that the odor section is correct. I actually doubt it's accurate or even correct. It's poorly sourced (1 source is a 404) and the statement that urine is "usually odorless" (patently false) isn't sourced at all. Thanks for bringing that to my attention. I'll do something about that section when I have time.--Atlan (talk) 10:24, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
It was my understanding that diabetics urine can often smell like sugar puffs when there insulin levels are high. But I cant find anything medical to support that.--Footix2 (talk) 09:13, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
dont diabetics urine smell of sugar in general? im sure chinese diabetics family members dont say: hey, your urine smells like a british breakfast cereal! I dont think this fact will be added unless a medical consortia in UK announces this smell test as a way to diagnose diabetes.Mercurywoodrose (talk) 16:05, 24 September 2009 (UTC)


honey and brown sugar? if so, this would be the only commercial breakfast cereal using these forms of sugar as the main sugar source. would someone in UK confirm that its actually corn syrup glaze with small amounts of other sugars, as per every other crap cereal like this? Mercurywoodrose (talk) 20:42, 14 September 2009 (UTC)

I doubt it's anything very high quality, but in the UK it's very unlikely to be corn syrup. That's a uniquely North American substance, very rarely found over here. (talk) 22:41, 20 June 2016 (UTC)
