    never know untill you try them, someone would of had the same thougth before they used malteasers or marshmallows and they have both been known to catch big carp off the top... im guessing puff wheats float on water so will most likely suit the summer more so.. just my thoughts!

        Don't disregard them just because others say they wont work or it's the wrong time of year, as speaking from experience they CAN and DO work ANY time of the year if the fish want them.

        In colder months (as well as Summer) i've found they can be effective fished with a feeder or method as they sit above the feed (depending on the length of your hook length).

        Give them a try as you have NOTHING to lose.

            Try pumping them as for expander pellets.
