Alien Berry Punch Flavored Oat Cereal (Fred Meyer)

This was the weirdest cereal I’ve had in a while. The cereal consists of yellow marshmallow stars, brown oat puffs, blue alien shapes, and a bizarre Cookie Crisp-style discus. It’s a good snack as a dry cereal, but once exposed to milk, the ingredients seem to break down and deteriorate into a frothy foam-like substance that isn’t very desirable. Even still, I ate it because it seemed cool and I liked the shapes.

Alpha-Bits (Post)

It’s geared at young kids, but this could just as easily be a “transitional” cereal marketed toward adults who don’t want to admit they like sugar.

Bowl of Apple Cinnamon Chex.

Apple Cinnamon Chex (General Mills)

A good cereal that I’d like to eat again, but don’t see myself getting nostalgic over twenty years from now; Apple Cinnamon Chex lived up to my expectations, but didn’t necessarily exceed them.

Apple Jacks with Marshmallows (Kellogg's)

What is there to say, really? If you’ve had Apple Jacks, you know what the cereal tastes like; if you’ve had Lucky Charms, you know what the marshmallows taste like. It may not be innovative, but the combination works surprisingly well together.

Basic 4 (General Mills)

Is it basic? Are there four of whatever it is? Find out!

Batman v Superman: Batman (General Mills)

Note: this is the second half of a two-part review! Be sure to read the Superman cereal review! Based on looks alone, the Batman cereal is a clear winner. Even though we’ve seen little bat-shaped cereal pieces before, they easily beat out the vague, miscolored “Superman Symbol” pentagon shapes of the Superman cereal. Also, they

Batman v Superman: Superman (General Mills)

Superman never made any money saving the world from Solomon Grundy. That’s why he licensed his image for this interesting caramel crunch cereal.

Berry Berry Kix (General Mills)

The original Berry Berry Kix is on my personal list of top 5 cereals, and overall it’s still a pretty good cereal, and I can’t complain. But compared to what it once was, with just a slight change in shape, it really does feel like it’s missing something!

Berry Bunch O’Krunch (Family Gourmet)

I typically have a soft spot for off-brand cereals, but this was just a poor experience all around. I did give an extra point, however, because 15 ounces of Berry Bunch O’Krunch costs a little over half the price of a box of Cap’n Crunch with Crunch Berries (of the same weight). The real stuff is definitely worth the extra expense!

Cap’n Crunch’s Caramel Popcorn Crunch (Quaker)

There have been a lot of gimmicky cereals this year, and I have a feeling most of them aren’t here for the long haul, and while it doesn’t do the “cereal-that-tastes-like-another-food” gimmick as well as some others, it’s still a decent cereal and it’s worth checking out while you can.

Cap’n Crunch’s Christmas Crunch (Quaker)

If you celebrate Christmas and you like Cap’n Crunch’s Crunch Berries, well, why not? Merry Christmas!

Cap’n Crunch’s HomeRun Crunch (Quaker)

Do you like Cap’n Crunch with Crunch Berries? Do you not hate sports? Here’s something.

Cap’n Crunch (Quaker)

If Guy Fieri was reviewing this cereal, he would say the following: “This cereal takes you on a sugary ride straight into crunch town.” If you are craving a highly sugary snack, go for the box of Cap’n Crunch. If you want a satisfying cereal, go elsewhere.

Cap’n Crunch with Crunch Berries (Quaker)

This was a great cereal-eating experience, especially compared to eating some of the lesser (much lesser), off-brand imitators out there.

Cheerios + Ancient Grains (General Mills)

Not bad, but really, “ancient”? Gimmicks aside, it’s very reminiscent of the Honey Nut Cheerios Medley Crunch, just with Multi-Grain replacing the Honey Nut part.

Chex Clusters Fruit & Oats (General Mills)

If you’re into Chex and berries, you’ll like the flavor. I liked it. I didn’t love it, but not everything has to be a home run.

Bowl of Chocolate Lucky Charms.

Chocolate Lucky Charms (General Mills)

Overall, a surprisingly good cereal considering it’s such an obvious idea. Chocolate Lucky Charms!

Cinnamon Crunch (Cascadian Farm)

I am a few grams of sugar away from saying that I love this cereal. I really LIKE this cereal, but would like it more if they just upped the cinnamon/sugar/crunch factor just a bit. It’s still a really delicious snack and a great “healthy” alternative to Cinnamon Toast Crunch.

Cinnamon Crunch Squares (Millville)

Another off-brand imitation that deserves high praise. Cinnamon Crunch Squares is pretty comparable to Cinnamon Toast Crunch in most areas, and even exceeds it in some others.

Cinnamon Pebbles (Post)

Post’s been doing great things with Pebbles lately, and this new offering is no exception.
