Very flavorful. Even the non-crunch-berry pieces had an almost-buttery taste. Admittedly, there was nothing especially fruity tasting about the actual crunch berries. If the Cap’n can ramp up the flavor in that department, I could easily bump this score way up.

Very. You know how when you eat something especially-sweet sometimes, it actually burns your throat to eat it? Like those disgusting Little Hugs drinks that come in barrel-shaped plastic containers with foil lids? Cap’n Crunch with Crunch Berries is on the cusp of that, but never crosses over completely. I could see myself getting a sore on my tongue if I ate a lot of it though.

I’ve had much crunchier cereals, but it does, in fact, stay crunchy in milk, unlike its imitators. I spent way more time setting up photos for this than I did for the Berry Bunch O’Krunch review (not that you can tell), and it was still crunchy by the time I got around to taking a bite.

Rich, unnatural colors, which is exactly what I’m looking for in a cereal like Cap’n Crunch with Crunch Berries. It looked bright and vivid even before milk was added.

Cool. Again, this is another one of the “retro” boxes featuring the Jay Ward Cap’n Crunch characters. They should just switch to back to this style permanently, it’s so obviously more appealing than the modern boxes.

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

    This cereal shreds my soft pallet, and aftertaste is weird and unpleasant.
