Fake Cereal Carts have become a very popular phenomenon, causing a lot of confusion and disruption to consumers. Because there is no information about this company, many people are wondering if these carts are safe to smoke or even legit.

Although we aren’t sure its legitimacy, we have recently encountered fake Cereal Carts that have been improperly made. We picked up two different flavors, Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Honey Nut Cheerios, and found right away they were fake. Furthermore, here we’ll explain how to differentiate between unordinary and odd Cereal Carts to (supposedly) real ones.

Counterfeit carts are selling fast through the black market

Chinese manufacturers sell fake Cereal Carts with empty cartridges in bulk, making the oil mysterious and untrustworthy.

There’s hundreds of accounts, selling fake Cereal carts through dozens of different platforms, claiming to be real. It’s an industry wide problem. Cereal is not the only brand to be subjected to fake cartridges. Either people selling pre-filled cartridges full of pesticides, or manufacturers selling packaging for people to re-fill. Regardless, all these fake counterfeit cartridges are disrupting the cannabis industry and the consumers experience. This makes it very difficult to trust and smoke Cereal Carts in the first place.

Below is a video with the basics on fake Cereal Carts. Keep reading for more detailed information.

Identifying Fake Cereal Carts

It may be very hard to tell apart, for there really is no information about the company what so ever. Although they do have an Instagram account, it is private, not allowing us to view any of their posts. Some of these identifiers are very little and subtle, sometimes these carts will look identical to the original packaging.

Improper packaging / No holograph on package

As shown to the left, there is no sort of holograph on the packaging, making it look bland.

First, the easiest way to tell if they’re fake is if there’s no sort of hologram on the packaging. The same goes with fake Dank Vapes, there should always be some sort of holograph on every strain, logo and overall packaging. If it looks like some simple, plain package that doesn’t seem to shine, than it may be a fake Cereal Carts.

The same goes for holograph in the back side, and all throughout fake Cereal Carts.

The taste is odd and atrocious

Another thing to watch for with these carts is the taste of each strain. The real ones should taste exactly like whatever the strain of the package claims to be. These two flavors we have give very light hits and flavor, tasting like artificial cereal and vape juice. There have even been rumors of people claiming their cart to taste like too much chemicals or even metal.

The oil is dark and bad quality

With the fake Cereal Carts we have, the oil looked identical to the legit ones. Both of these are fakes, and have a normal gold color to it.

Sometimes you won’t be able to tell at all, but other times these counterfeits use terrible oil quality and terpenes. Cereal Carts and Dank Vapes both have moderate looking oil. Not too dark, nor too light, but a strong yellow color. Also, the oil isn’t even that dense with the real ones, they are somewhat light and thin. But if it moves very fast like watered down oil, it might be fake and hazardous to smoke.

Fake Cereal Carts may have inauthentic CCELL cartridges

This is another great way to check if your Cereal cart, or any cartridge that uses CCELL is legit. Remember, even the littlest things can differentiate the differences between each other.

CCELL carts have three different stamps on them

Authentic CCELL cartridges should always have these three stamps engraved to them.

Each cartridge has three unique stamps engraved on the bottom of it. A CCELL logo, a K stamp and a CA serial number as well. None of these three should be missing nor misplaced. Furthermore, this engraved stamp should not look oddly huge or have a light color. If you see that your stamp has a different font size or style than the original carts, it might not be authentic. Shown below will tell you the difference between real and fake CCELL’s.

Also always check for stamps and other odd features on the bottom.

With both of these fakes, they had missing stamps and the white plastic around it.

Overall, I recommend to purchase safer cartridges than Cereal Carts

Regardless of how good these may taste to you, they are still unknown and sketchy to trust at this moment. Having no background, we are unsure what exactly is in this distillate. Apart from this, there are no lab results of any sort for this brand out yet.

As usual, we recommend for you to purchase your products safely through licensed dispensaries or a trusted source. There are too many fakes containing dozens of pesticides in each distillate. If you’ve ever encountered these cartridges, post it on the forum and tell us your experience.


  1. Got at least one fake Dank in UT recently. Either my banana or sour patch, not sure which cause I didnt look it up till they were both gone.

  2. Got a legit cereal cart in MI today but no holographic packaging…the cart had proper engravings and the oil is the right color and consistency

  3. Captain Crunch tasted great Vaped great.

    Stamps legit only had a white gasket, not cheap plastic, but a viable looking white rubber gasket

    • I had the same experience stamps matched viable looking gasket…. oh wait that was my post damn these Vapes are good…….LMAO

  4. All these are fakes. There is no such thing as a real cereal brand cart (thats if by real you mean a licensed company). It is just a chinese packaging manufacturer selling packaging to smaller companies/ or anybody out making carts in their garage. There are no “terpenes” that taste like cereal. So even that is fake (artificial) about them. So the only thing to do is to check each cereal cart you might buy and see if any good (bubble test, clarity, taste and potency). Now if your down with those artificial flavors, just like in nicotine vape industry then cool. But do not buy these ever thinking they are from a reputable company or made with terpenes.

  5. My new favorites and they are made from DANK brand, ice cream carts next I only tried 1 and it’s AMAZING,I’ve had about 5 different cereal carts and they are smooth tasty and help my chronic pain

  6. Love cereal carts look for the same 3 stamps as DANK brand they taste amazing and so smooth same manufacturing of DANK brand the Real Ones

  7. The real dank/cereal boxes are smaller and have embossed/engraved fruit, etc. on the box and the label itself is holographic but not a lot. The oil should be bright/clear yellow that’s very thick and the bubble shouldn’t move. It should taste great and have all its serial #’s, stamps, etc. if you don’t live in a legal state I suggest you spend 100-150 on a plane ticket and bring them back as they allow 8 grams of concentrate and an Oz of flower in carry in and aren’t really checking for vape carts or weed. Ijs

  8. I passed all test on these carts even with the holographic around the whole box, there actually great, I’m not a big fan of any carts but these carts taste just like there name! There potent cuz I usually dab but not today lol. My cart did have the holographic all around the box with all 3 stamps on the cart
